"The C713 Cutlass is a long-range stealth interceptor/fighter. It is completely invisible on any radar. The Cutlass is designed to be able to operate like a regular fighter, or operate up to two weeks separated from a larger slipspace-capable vessel, for ambush missions."
―Major Paul T. Webster, on the C713 Cutlass
The C713 Cutlass is a UNSC Stealth fighter, capable of being able to engage multiple hostile singleships, or even larger ships, with little risk to the crew. The Cutlass was capable of being armed with 20 conventional or nuclear munitions.
