- "First of all, it wasn't all that big. It was about as long as a school bus. The front end was a pod, shaped almost like an egg. Extending from the back of the pod was a long, narrow shaft. There were two crooked, stubby winglike things, and on the end of each wing was a long tube that glowed bright blue on the back end. The little spaceship looked almost cute. You know, kind of harmless. Except that it had a sort of tail - a mean-looking tail that curved up and forward, corning to a point that looked as sharp as a needle."
An Andalite fighter is a standard combat spacecraft for the Andalites. It is as large as a school bus. The front end is an egg-shaped pod, housing the craft's cockpit. Extending from the back of the pod is a long, narrow shaft, with two crooked, stubby wings, and on the end of each wing is a long thruster that glows bright blue on the back end. At the rear, it has an arched protrusion, resembling a raised Andalite's tail, that's curved up and forward. The 'tail' comes to a point as sharp as a needle, and is where the fighter's main offensive weapon, the Shredder gun, is located. A Tail fighter is also equipped with mini Shredder beams and can carry mines.
