The first non-combat aircraft developed by Northrop, the Rivet Joint is a multirole electronic support aircraft based on the Spectre. It is fitted with an Improved C3 Computer and TAG to aid friendly units, as well as a Beagle Active Probe and ECM suite.


Absolutely not intended to be anywhere near a combat zone, the Rivet Joint mounts a single Medium Pulse Laser in its tail to deter hostile fighters, though its lifespan when enemy fighters have penetrated its screening force is extremely short.


RVTJ-135B- The aircraft's sole variant, designed to skirt the borders of enemy airspace, the B-model replaces its Improved C3 Computer and TAG with a Sigint (Signals Intelligence) suite and an SRM-6 under each wing.
