The nickname of 'Venom' is well-earned; the distinctive 'fanged' hull certainly gives this fighter an intimidating look, especially in low orbit. With cooling fins and vents, the primary weakness of the fighter is rather obvious but it's rather large size and strange shape make it hard to pin down where to exploit said weakness. The color and designs painted on the hull are usually left up to the pilot to personalize and usually contain various words in Mando'a or clan symbols, depending on how artistic the pilot is.
As a strike fighter, the Jai'galaar is generally meant for bomber interception and escort; most often deployed alongside orbital drops of Basilisk War Droids. Developed by the new shipyards on Ordo and designed and commissioned by Clan Ordo, it's addition to the Mandalorian fleet was a much-needed answer to Republic and Sith bombers, small pirate vessels and boarding parties. Effectively, it was meant to be the chisel to the hammer that was their capital-class vessels.
