The V'sett-class fighters were equipped with shield generators and sensor arrays at every corner, two technologies provided by Emperor Palpatine as enticement for the Ssi-Ruuk to provide him with their entechment technology thirty years earlier. Their engines flashed bright violet when powering at maximum and their laser blasts burned a brilliant white.
In addition to lasers, the V'sett also possessed a small tractor beam emitter.
Due to the Ssi-ruuk's religious fear of dying on an unconsecrated world, the V'sett-class fighters were largely concentrated in the safe confines of the Ssi-ruuk Star Cluster and thus were not deployed outside of Ssi-ruuvi space. Chiss Ascendancy and Empire of the Hand starfighter pilots fought these starfighters during their incursions into Ssi-ruuvi space following the events of the failed Ssi-ruuvi invasion of Bakura in 4 ABY. However, they were first observed by Galactic Alliance forces only in the second Ssi-Ruuvi invasion of Bakura in 28 ABY.
