The ISP-6 is lightly armored and carries a pair of light blasters, one mounted on each wing to either side of the cockpit. However, the weapons are only for emergency use as the greatest advantage of the ISP-6 is its speed. The ship's size, tri-wing configuration and tightly angled hull allow it to achieve exceptional speed and maneuverability.
A drawback to the size of the vehicle is that it leaves very little room for other systems, including the cockpit. The cramped cockpit contains nothing more than a yoke controlling both flight and weapons, and the most utilitarian of Heads Up Displays (HUD). As such the firing of the weapons relies primarily on a pilot's skill rather than technologies such as sensors or targeting systems.
The ISP-6, proving successful in its purpose, was made obsolete and eventually replaced by newer designs. Despite being decommissioned, a limited number of these ships made it into the private sector where they can still be seen in use.
