    The #2 Warpod is used by the Corporate Sector Authority as an orbital patrol and pursuit ship. These classes of ships are notable in that they have moderate cargo space, but have the weapons, armour and speed to serve in fighter combat. These craft serve as small combat and supply ships that are typically assigned to transports and cruisers that do not have the facilities for servicing starfighters but have the need of them. These craft are also assigned to ships that require armed cargo transports, such as those operating in hostile fire zones. While the #2 Warpod cannot compete with modern fighters such as the TIE Interceptor, it can compete with older designs such as the Z-95 Headhunter. The CSA version of the craft does not have the plasma boarding device.

    However, pirates operating near the Corporate Sector favour the #2 Warpod and have modified it with the plasma torch boarding device. The plasma torch boarding device is mounted on the airlock system. The controls for the device are located just inside the main airlock. The extendible plasma torch can quickly cut through the target ship's hull. Once the hull is breached, the plasma torch requires a full standard minute to cut a one metre wide by two metre high hole. The extendible boarding tube attaches itself to the target ship's hull and can form an airtight seal in standard 30 seconds.
