The Asp is a highly maneuverable medium fighter, which can hold its own against most similar-sized opponents.
Painted rusty red like all Split ships, the Asp resembles a crab's pincer, with two fuselages that meet at a combined cockpit/engine section at the stern.
Typical of Split ships, the Asp relies on its heavy firepower and evasive capabilities to defeat foes at the expense of shielding. The Asp's 25MJ shield is enough to take a few glancing blows from an M3, while giving it almost complete dominance over basic M4s and M5s.
The Asp is available at the majority of Split Shipyards.
The Asp is a good mid-range fighter to use on carriers due to its reasonable cost, heavy firepower and good evasion. Its PBE compatibility makes it deadly against all classes of ship, while it costs a fraction the amount of an M3.
