*Information represents the ship's default performance.
The Eagle is a proven combat fighter with a distinguished history. It is one of the smallest fighters available with jump capability. It has the distinction of being the only ship that has been so successful that versions have been built for both the Federation and Imperial navies. This role has been superseded by the respective navies' short range fighter programmes, but the Eagle still sees extensive service across human space. Core Dynamics are no longer building these ships, but do still provide parts and servicing due to their popularity.
The Eagle Mk. II is the best fighter craft currently available in Elite: Dangerous. While it is by far the most maneuverable, its limited cargo space and tendency to overheat results in a fighter that takes a great deal of skill to pilot and man effectively. The ship features 3 hardpoints and 2 cargo units.
