Exo-Fighter?

Call me paranoid (I probably am), but I wonder if the secrecy around this spacecraft is more about its intended usage than its propulsion system. Given the way the United States government is about things these days, a space fighter is my first guess for what the Space Force would develop. I doubt we’d see any of it, and I don’t think it would involve dogfights in low orbit, but a space fighter would be handy against ICBMs, IRBMs, and enemy satellites if it could dock with the International Space Station… or that Black Knight Satellite, whatever it is…

The idea would be so cool. Too bad it probably violates every treaty we have about space travel.
