The Type-31 Exoatmospheric Multi-role Fighter (T-31 XMF), otherwise known as the Seraph-class Starfighter, is a widely used Covenant starfighter. The Seraph is the successor to the older Tarasque-class heavy fighter. The Seraph features a teardrop-like design, fitting with the overall look of elegance the Covenant are known for. Seraph fighters are mostly stored in the hangar bays of Covenant ships or stations when they are not in battle or escorting a ship. Seraphs have two movable flaps on either side of their hull and their twin "tails" are articulated to aid with directing exhaust. These features give the Seraph superior turning capabilities in zero-gravity environments.
