The AS-785 Sweeper starfighter has become a symbol of the Rogue Sword Faction's starfighter corps. Pressed into service time and again, the typical Alliance Sweeper shows the scars from previous engagements, though the fact that it still performs as an advanced vessel of space superiority is indication of the ruggedness of the craft.
The sleek fuselage of the Sweeper starfighter is 12.5 meters long. The long, narrow spaceframe is flanked in the aft quarter by one massive realspace engine, and two smaller turvo-thrust engines. The wings not only serve as stabilizer surfaces in air travel, but also distribute deflector shield energy. The surface of each S-foil bears squadron and fighter markings.
Located at the rear of the ship is its cockpit module. Three landing gears extend when the fighter is docked.

I don't know...this doesn't exactly look "rugged" as you call it. If you added some more armor and wing support, though, it would fit in its role a lot better. Still, a good fighter, rugged or not. 4/5.
