The Jem'Hadar fighter is a small attack ship and was the majority of the Dominion fleet. Each fighter is crewed by one Vorta with a crew of eleven Jem'Hadar and thirty Jem'Hadar solders. The fighter full fills the role of scout, patrol, and escort vessel in the Dominion Fleet.
Early conflicts between Starfleet ships and Jem'Hadar fighters proved that Starfleet shielding technology was unable to withstand the Phased Polaron Beam weapons employed by the Jem'Hadar. Once Starfleet shields were modified to withstand the Jem'Hadar weapons the fighters were easily defeated by Starfleet ships in a one on one conflict. To overcome this short coming in the fighter design Dominion tactics required for the fighters to operate in attack groups of two or most often three ships. During large battles the fighters would operate in larger swarms to allowing them to defeat larger targets even if one or two of the ships is destroyed.
The fighter has proven highly maneuverable and is able to out maneuver ships of a similar size or smaller but could be out maneuvered by Danube Class runabouts. The Jem'Hadar Fighter is capable of making planetary landing under and then returning to orbit under its own power. Due to the design limitations of the fighter its maneuverability is hampered while operating within a planets atmosphere.
The systems of the Jem'Hadar Fighter have proven to hold surprises for Starfleet. The Transporters used by the fighters can transport troops through the shields of Starfleet ships. Their sensor systems have proven able to detect cloaked ships and with their shields activated a tractor beam could not lock onto the fighters. An examination of a captured fighter has shown that these ships lacked any sick bay like facility nor food replicators. Another notable difference between the fighter and the ships of Starfleet is the bridge design. The bridge lacked any view screen. The Vorta and Jem'Hadar first wore headsets with a monocle like viewer that was positioned in front of one eye allowing the wearer to access views of the area around the ship.
In the later period of the Dominion War Jem'Hadar Fighters were equipped with the Breen energy dampening weapon making the fighters even more dangerous than they already were. This modification came to late in the war to prevent the defeat of the Dominion.
