The Vulture space superiority fighter sacrifices hardpoint flexibility for manoeuvrability. Advanced manufacturing techniques have allowed the Vulture to integrate large hardpoints into its relatively small frame, offsetting the ship's limited weapon count, but its nimble flight characteristics make it equally devastating against smaller targets. A limited cargo and passenger capability has not stopped it becoming a preferred personal transport for those who like to project a certain attitude in their dealings.

— In-Game Description

The Vulture is a heavy space superiority fighter.

With its two large (class 3) hardpoints, the Vulture sports superb fire power for its relatively small frame. Although it lacks top speed compared to other ships, its lateral thrusters put the ship among the most agile and manoeuvrable fighters, thus allowing for more powerful lateral slides and vertical hops.

The Vulture's main drawback is its limited power capacity given the two large hardpoints and the excessive amounts of utility mounts and internal compartments on offer, which can be counteracted to a degree by smart module priority control and sacrifices in the loadout choice.

The two large hardpoints are located above and behind the cockpit, about halfway down the hull of the ship. They are well suited for any type of weapon mount — fixed, gimballed, or turreted — and capable of shooting at targets even slightly underneath the waterline of the hull. A loadout of two fixed weapons may have slight issues with converging on smaller targets like Sidewinders, Eagles, or Haulers.

The Vulture has two visible manned stations. The pilot's chair is on the centerline of the ship. The auxiliary station is offset to the port side (left side) and is above and behind the pilot's station.

The Vulture has an available 16 piece cosmetic ship kit that can be purchased from the Frontier store which allows you to "remodel your ship in your personal style". The ship kit does not affect gameplay.
