The Imperial Eagle has seen service in the Imperial Navy and allied fleets for many years. The original Eagle is a multi-role fighter where the Imperial version is geared more towards the interceptor role. It carries more powerful weaponry and is capable of higher speeds than the original, although at the expense of some of the original ship's famed manoeuvrability.

— In-game description

The Imperial Eagle is an Imperial variant of the Eagle MkII that has been produced by Gutamaya since 3199.[1] While the Imperial Eagle can easily exceed the speed of an Eagle MkII, this enhancement comes at the cost of manoeuvrability.[2] Unlike other Imperial ships, the Imperial Eagle does not require any Imperial Navy rank to purchase.


The Imperial Eagle boasts superior armour and shield strength in addition to one medium Hardpoint replacing one of the three small hardpoints on the regular Eagle MkII, however it is not as maneuverable as the original Eagle MkII. It is one of the fastest ships in the game; in fact, with EP thrusters and Engineer upgrades, it may have the highest potential normal-space speed of any playable ship.

The weapon hardpoints are located as follows: a single medium hardpoint on the top of the ship behind the cockpit and two small hardpoints mounted side-by-side on the underside of the main fuselage in front of the bump that contains the cargo scoop.
