The Swiftdeath Fighter is a void-capable interceptor spacecraft that served as the primary Attack Craft used by the Forces of Chaos during the Gothic War in the early 41st Millennium. Like most Chaotic starships and other vehicles, the Swiftdeath was manufactured within the Eye of Terror by the servants of Abaddon the Despoiler. The Swiftdeath was used in both an interceptor and fleet escort role during the Gothic War. According to the reports from the fighter wings of the Dictator-class Cruiser Lord Solar Macharius, who often had to compete against Swiftdeath fighters, the craft posessed "a general lethal appearance oozing menace, with the sickle-like wings giving the distinct impression that the fighter was cutting its way through the void. Nimble and fast, its banks of Lascannons made the Swiftdeath a dangerous opponent to face." Little else is currently known about this Chaos spacecraft.
