Most often they have been used in attacking our supply convoys and transports.Treat the Basilisk as a Class C threat.

FreeSpace 2 DescriptionEdit

The SF Basilisk is a Shivan heavy attack fighter. Slow but heavily armed and well-protected, the Basilisk targets slower-moving vessels, such as bombers, freighters, and gasminers.
