Early MentionsEdit

Before Scythes were officially introduced to the public in Jump Point 4, there were but hints that the Vanduul ships with blades might be called Scythes.[2]

They appeared in Star Citizen trailer acting as an agressor against Bengal Class Carrier and its escort.

Cal looked down just in time to see the Vanduul Raider, Mr Black Talon, dance-fire his mod-thrusters in a ridiculous combination to weave him around the combined firepower of Poll and the other pilot. He sliced Poll’s ship in half with his wing and unleashed an aimed burst at the other Cestus.[3]

–Cassandra’s Tears: Issue #2

"He sliced Poll’s ship in half with his wing", which indicates that the raider has a wing formed like some sort of blade, and the only design fitting this match so far, is this one.

If they were Vanduul, he wasn’t going to let them sneak up behind-

They were. About a dozen more Scythes and a couple Crawlers.[3]

–Cassandra’s Tears: Issue #2

During that same fight Cal states "a dozen MORE Scythes" indicating that they were already present in the fight. Also, the ships design is that of a scythe (One large curved blade).

During the crowdfunding campaign livestream, Chris Roberts compared the Vanduul Fighter to the Hornet in response to a question asked on Kickstarter. He indicated that the Vanduul Fighter has 12 maneuvering thrusters, is to some degree more maneuverable than the Hornet, and confirmed that the large 'wing' is indeed reinforced for use in ramming attacks. In terms of armament, the Vanduul fighter lacks the Hornet's articulated gun mounts (fixed forward fire only), has fewer guns overall (though those guns are heavier), and carries 7 missiles to the Hornet's 8.
