Originally designed to be a civilian bomber the early model Virages achieved little success on the open market, rumours of shoddy manufacturing were rife, and the original company that designed and produced this ship faded into obscurity as fast as they had appeared.

The Zoners bought the design patents for a pittance and placed some of their finest design teams on the project, however even these were stumped as to what to use the Virage for. Eventually a new ship designer made a suggestion that would change the Virage's purpose.

The Virage was stripped of its torpedo hardpoints and superlative powerplant, then modified to become a cheap and efficient Very Heavy Fighter, in this configuration it proved popular amongst Mercenaries operating within the Border and Edge worlds, ensuring a healthy profit for the Zoners.
