Cuga Ren understands that he cannot use the same ship everywhere he goes so for the sake of simplicity he has a devoted vessel he keeps hidden for use as the leader of the Knights of Ren. A TIE hunter has been selected for this task for numerous reasons. The upgrades done to the vessel would mean its owner would have to provide permits if asked but seeing as he he'll be traveling to most places under the guise of Cuga Ren he doubts there will be much tourist like parking amenities.
Calling it 'Shadow Hunter' to pay homage to the Shadow, he uses it to carry out his dark side agenda. The fact that it can withstand harsh climates makes it ideal considering he often travels to Bal'demnic often enough, among other locations. The upgrade to the fusial afterburner works to temporarily compensate for the drawback of having upgraded the two medium laser cannons up to heavy laser cannons. Inside the cockpit Cuga keeps a vibro-blade and a blaster pistol as an extra means of defense in the event he becomes stranded. An additional 10 kilograms of welding putty are kept in stowage as well should he need to make field repairs.
Note: This vessel is associated exclusively with Cuga Ren and not Malakai's true identity or other aliases.
Restricted. TIE Hunters are starfighters, and are subject to extra licensing requirements and increased scrutiny by authorities. The additional upgrades for the time being lack the appropriate permits.
