RC-2 Twilight Scoutship

The Twilight Scoutship produced by Incom is a favorite of Galactic Alliance recon units. This single-person ship has an extended cockpit, giving it enough space to allow the pilot to move around the cabin during extended surveillance duties. For shorter trips, one to two passengers may crowd aboard and operate the sensor suite at the auxiliary positions.

The Twilight incorporates advances in stealth technology originally developed for the StealthX X-Wing Starfighter. As its name suggests, the Twilight is painted in a mottled pattern of dark gray to black hues, lightly speckled with white dots so that the ship blends into the starfield of deep space. The coating also reduces the ship's sensor reflectivity and dampens its heat signature. The ship's ion engines are similar to those of TIE Fighters- small, with minimal engine glow to betray its position. While stationary and in passive sensor mode, the Twilight can be extremely difficult to detect.

The Twilight relies on stealth to survive, as it has light shielding, armor, and weaponry. However, it also carries a launcher capable of firing two powerful missiles or torpedoes, enabling it to make effective surprise attacks or giving it additional firepower if detected. Additionally, the ship can create limited jamming fields to disrupt enemy sensor readings and targeting computers at short range.

The advanced stealth technology used in the Twilight Scoutship help to his it from enemy sensors. Perception and Use Computer checks made to detect a Twilight Scoutship suffer a -10 penalty. Additionally, an enemy attacking a Twilight does not apply its ship's Intelligence modifier to attack rolls.
