Spartanians (Japanese: スパルタニアン) were small Alliance attack craft analogous to the Galactic Empire's Walküre fighters.



The Spartanian design comprised two hulls. The primary hull incorporated the cockpit and armament, which was attached to the secondary hull incorporating the engines. The secondary hull was connected to the primary hull by way of a mechansim which allowed the primary and secondary hull to turn and pivot independently of each other, allowing for great maneuverability and the ability to aim weapons independent from the fighter's direction of flight. (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)', 'Victory for Whose Sake?')

The Spartanian's armament was concentrated in the forward hull and consisted of a single autocannon fitted to the dorsal side of the hull, with four laser cannons mounted in the bow beneath. The cockpit was completely enclosed.

On Alliance warships, Spartanians were launched via a number of extendable launch pads (each capable of carrying two fighters) on the port and starboard  hull, near the midships position. (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)')
