Jaecyn Riddick's Mk 5 E-Wing originally started its life as a Mk 4 E-Wing, having served in the Tanaab starfighter wings before being retired. It was in remarkably good condition for a craft soon to be sold for scrap metal, when Riddick came across it, just weeks before he went to the Grey Jedi Council.

Eventually, he returned to Ossus with it, and over the next few years, upgraded it, starting with weapons and armor. Upon the founding of OssusTech, even more upgrades went into it, including new computer systems, better engines, and stealth. It became one of Riddick's pet projects, and the basis for all other E-Wings in the employ of the Ysannan military, which would become the Ossus Defense Force.

This fighter, in it's original Mk 4 version was present during a battle for Kashyyyk, in which the Sith took control of the planet. During the battle, a human woman he knew was killed. When he found out about it, he named the craft "Hell Hath No Fury," as a kind of symbolic gesture of retribution, that when his fighter goes up against Sith opponents, he'd be "getting one back" for her. He painted the name and a picture of her on his craft, and it has since remained, even during it's reformation and current usage. He would later rename the craft "Hard to Get," accounting for the fact that while his craft has sustained hits over it's "extended" lifetime, it hasn't been shot down.

As with most equipment he came into contact with, Riddick was always looking to improve it. This particular craft would be, for him, an opportunity to blend the most essential elements of dogfighting, thus creating a whole new class of machine that would dominate in the fighter arena. As Riddick was no stranger to trouble of many kinds, it was also essential for him, personally, to have a vehicle that would be as adaptable and versatile, and be able to either evade trouble, or get rid of the trouble.

He still flies it today, and is attached to the 1st Fighter Squadron, 1st Fighter Wing of the ODF during military operations. The unit is serving onboard the ODFS Ferrin Sha along with seventeen other squadrons of Mk 5 E-wings, and six squadrons of XJ9 X-Wings and six of K-Wings. To his credit, Riddick has 126 kills in this craft, a vast majority of them being Sith, as they've more often stricken Ossus in combat.
