The Red Tail is Faye Valentine's Zipcraft. It is unknown how she obtained it or the legalities of that acquisition. Adept at flying, Faye has stood her ground just as well as Spike has in aerial dogfights with her Red Tail.
- This ship may be named after the Redtail butterflyfish, a type of reef fish, or more likely the Redtailed Black Shark which would fall into the same naming convention of the Swordfish II and the Hammer Head.
- It's also possible that this ship is called the Red Tail after the red-tailed hawk because it takes the form of a raptor: the pincers/guns are in the same position as a hawk's talons, slung underneath the ship, and the tail of the craft is red and similarly positioned to the red-tailed hawk's tail.
