The Wolfen is a class of space fighter, manufactured by Andross and used by Star Wolf. This became their primary spacecraft and almost the symbol of the team after the Lylat Wars.
Andross originally used spacecraft that were inferior to the Arwing, but intelligence reports indicated that he was well on his way to developing a new fighter to rival it. The appearance of the new "Wolfen class" star fighters proved the rumours true. The Wolfen was fast and maneuverable, armed with dual lasercannons for an impressive punch. However, the shield system was weaker than the one found on Arwing starfighters. The two were a close match in capabilities, so in the end the pilot's skill would more often than not determine who won a battle. Although it takes little damage from Charged Lasers and Smart Bombs, by performing a barrel roll the Wolfen could somehow cause an Arwing's locked-on Charged Laser or Bomb to stop following it. Presumably, the Wolfen, at least by the time of the Aparoid Invasion, included an escape pod in the cockpit, as Krystal with her sixth sense mentioned that Wolf and his team had "abandoned ship" in the Asteroid field after the wreckage of their Wolfens were discovered by the team.
In Star Fox Zero, the original design was modified slightly to include twin laser cannons mounted on both sides of the fuselage as well as a transformation ability in the form of the Hunter mode. Each Wolfen was also given a personal sub-weapon befitting of their pilot.
