X301.jpg

Earth's first prototype for an outer space combat vessel, intended to serve as a platform from which Earth could be defended from attacking ships. The X-301 Interceptor was a retrofit of two of Apophis's death gliders, armed with two A.I.M. 128A air-to-air missiles, each carrying naquadah-enhanced warheads.

If the tests had been successful, the ship was to be assigned to orbital defense under the auspices of Stargate Command. After the intial test flights failed and the X-301 was lost, the program seems to have been abandoned in favor of the X-302 and X-303 projects.
