The R1 was the first of the R-Class of ships, not to be confused with the R-Class Ship. It was originally built by Astron, and was very much loved there. However, during 200407 and 200408, Astron went through a recession, and was forced to sell it's beloved fighter-bombers. It's ally in SkyClan, Deron, bought them and eventually returned 3 to there original owners, free of charge. Now, of the 30 R1s built, Astron owns 3, and Deron owns the remaining 27. One of Deron's R1s was repainted into a special scheme that celebrated SkyClan's victory over Leon in the Dastrac War. This is called the "R1-VoL".
