The Misriah Armory F-41 Broadsword is a family of four-engine, atmospheric/exoatmospheric stealth multirole fighters. The Broadsword entered early design phases in 2527, and in 2529 was a flyable concept aircraft designated the X-40. The fighter was designed to directly counter the agile and highly manueverable Type-31 Seraph.

The Broadsword would first see action in 2535, during the Battle of Jericho VII in which the colony's Air Force wings valiantly fought a war of attrition to secure air superiority over the planet. Despite their early successes, the Broadsword would not be formally adopted by the Air Force as its primary strike fighter until 2552. That same year, the Navy also adopted the Broadsword, placing orders for the F-41C, a carrier-capable variant.

Beginning in 2554, the Air Force started phasing out the F-41A for the F-41E, which included an upgraded Titanium-A airframe and energy shields. The Navy would soon follow suit, adopting the F-41E and F-41G but still retaining the F-41C variant as its primary fighter aircraft.

As of 2558, the Broadsword family is slated to remain the primary fighter craft of the Air Force and Navy for decades, with a projected service life up to 2596.
