The Wrath or Wrath Pattern Starfighter was a starfighter formerly utilised by the pilots of the Legiones Astartes and the Imperialis Auxilia during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras of the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. By the beginning of the Horus Heresy, the Wrath had become obsolete, and was increasingly replaced in Imperial service by the Fury Interceptor since the Fury was easier to manufacture, its pilots found that it handled more smoothly, and it suffered technical malfunctions at a much lower rate.
However, the more veteran pilots in the Imperial Army fleet still preferred the Wrath, seeing it as a finer instrument of void war over the much more "sterile" Fury. Like its successor, the Wrath was also crewed by a mix of human or Space Marine pilots and Servitors.
