''The Loki is a surprisingly capable interceptor. It functions much like a slightly heavier Valkyrie. Afterburner velocity is the second highest for anything you get to fly, and afterburner reserves are not bad either. It is fairly durable as well, and as noted above, primaries configuration is comfortable. However maximum normal velocity is too low for my tastes, and the sole secondary bank is too small. I'd prefer to take a Perseus instead.''}}

The GTF Loki is an experimental stealth fighter which was used by rogue Galactic Terran Intelligence forces during the Hades Rebellion. It later became an staple part of the NTF's fighter forces during the NTF Rebellion. Its high speed, weapons compatability, and maneuverability is offset by its low armor and weapons capacity.

FS1 Tech Room Description
Designed by GTI engineers, the GTF Loki is undoubtedly the best reconaissance craft in Terran or Vasudan service. Its hull shape and shielded reactor chamber lends itself to providing a low sensor profile, and is yet capable of very high speed maneuvers. Its relatively light armament and low armor rating make it unsuitable for extended firefights, however.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GTF Loki is designated as a fighter, but it's more of a heavy reconnaissance craft. The Loki's micro-roughened hull and shielded exhaust chamber give it an extremely reduced profile to detection sensors. This makes it ideal for reconnaissance and infiltration missions that rely on stealth rather than firepower. Lacking the weaponry and armor to survive prolonged battles, the Loki can usually stay alive long enough for its high maneuverability and speed to discourage pursuers. Lokis are widely used by NTF forces.
High max velocity offset by its tiny payload. High weapon capacity.
The demonic figure of Loki is commonly believed to be the god of chaos in Germanic and Scandinavian myths. There are numerous stories about Loki, many depicting him differently, and contradicting each other in other aspects, too.
