The F-302 fighter-interceptor is the production model of the X-302 hyperspace fighter, an air and space superiority vehicle operated by the United States Air Force, the Russian Federation and possibly the People's Republic of China. It became Earth’s first space-worthy fighter-interceptor. The Prometheus and Daedalus-class series of warships carry one and two squadrons of F-302 fighter-interceptors, respectively. They have been used for planetary defense, unlike most typical starfighters such as the T-65 X-Wing. After the largely successful testing of the X-302 hyperspace fighter, the craft entered production with only slight modifications. The hyperdrive, which had originally been intended to allow interstellar travel, was altered to provide only short intra-system hops. Also, the two jet exhausts were modified so as to function as rockets in outer-atmosphere combat. They were used by the Alliance of Nations
