The Frazi class heavy fighter was the predominant class of fighter spacecraft utilized by the Narn Regime and was manufactured by Ma'Kan Industries at the Wings of G'Lan Orbital facility over Narn.
Fighters of this class were in service as early as 2258, when the Narn Regime launched a surprise attack on the Centauri agricultural colony on Ragesh 3. During the attack the fighters swept quickly through a minefield, eliminating it to make way for larger heavy cruisers. 
The same year, two heavily armed fighters of this class were dispatched by an order of Ambassador G'Kar to assist Catherine Sakai on her survey mission to Sigma 957. During the mission, Sakai's vessel Skydancer was disabled by a large alien spacecraft and due to the severe energy loss the craft was on decaying orbit into the planetary atmosphere. The fighters arrived just in time to rescue the Skydancer and then escorted it back to Babylon 5. 
Ambassador G'Kar was piloting one of these crafts during his scout mission beyond the Rim in early 2259. He had been ambushed by at least three Shadow fighters somewhere near then-unknown Shadow homeworld and was forced to retreat to the local jumpgate only barely escaping through it, losing all of the fighters from his escort. 
Frazi fighters are capable of operating both in an atmosphere and in space. The cockpits of these fighter are pressurized so the pilot does not have to wear a pressure suit as with Earth Alliance fighters.
The cockpit's ergonomics were specifically fine-tuned for a Narn pilot making it unconformable, if not entirely unusable for other species such as Minbari or Humans. The fighter's flight controls were mainly made up of touch-screen interfaces, suitable for the large hands of a typical Narn.
Behind the Scenes Edit
The Frazi CG model was designed and built by Visual Effects Artist and Foundation Imaging Co-founder Ron Thornton. As was often the case, the time allowed to develop the design was limited and the model's cockpit was squashed and stretched from the Starfury mesh. However, the design of the fighter would set the tone for the subsequent Narn Cruiser and Freighter designs.
