The KF-227 Salthi is a starfighter of the Empire of Kilrah.


This ship saw action in the first years of the Terran-Kilrathi War. In later stages it was not seen that frequently in front-line use but possibly the Empire used it for internal scouting and planetary defense.[1]

Obviously by the time of Wing Commander I it was replaced by the standard Salthi seen in the games.


The Salthi is small with light defenses, but very fast and maneuverable. It is totally vulnerable to a missile assault and even a single hit from a Terran Confederation fighter can damage it severely; but in coordination, a wing of four Salthis can be dangerous.[1]

Salthis possess sophisticated targeting system and the life support provides autonomy for 7 hours.[1]
