Game Notes:

  1. Narrow Attack Profile: When an enemy ship at close range targets a Fang starfighter, treat it as though at moderate range.
  2. The proton torpedo launcher is in a hidden bay residing in the belly of the Fang fighter. While recessed, scans to detect this weapon are at a +3D difficulty modifier.

Background: The Fang-class starfighter, also known as Fang fighter, Protectorate fighter, or as the Protector Fang Fighter, was a starfighter manufactured by SoroSuub Corporation and MandalMotors and used by the Mandalorian Protectors.

Fang fighters were fast and highly maneuverable starship designed specifically for combat. The craft’s narrow attack profile and swivel-mounted wings that provided vectored-thrust control gave the fighter unmatched agility.

The Fang fighter was designed and manufactured by MandalMotors, and SoroSuub Corporation Possessing a frame that was considered elegant yet aggressive in design, the Fang fighter had a thin, angular silhouette and a cranked-delta platform that gave the vessel an unmistakable profile. The fighter’s fuselage took the form of a small, elongated hexagon with a low-profile canopy that covered the vessel’s midship-mounted cockpit; the starfighter’s aft section was dominated by a single, large, high-output ion engine. Two articulated S-foil wings were mounted to the fighter’s fuselage, each capable of rotating and able to be raised or lowered, and possessed of a large, additional ion engine. The Fang fighter featured a sophisticated vectored thrust system, advanced flight controls, and automated vernier thrusters.

Fang fighters could accommodate a single pilot, with no room for other passengers, and enough consumables for one to three standard days. They possessed an array of close range sensors, a class 2 hyperdrive, and an onboard navigation computer. The Fang fighter’s S-foil wings housed the majority of the starfighter’s weapon systems, which comprised of a pair of forward-mounted laser cannons. Just forward of the cockpit, mounted in the fighter’s underside, was a retractable torpedo launcher that carried a single proton torpedo, offering the vessel a degree of tactical flexibility. The hidden launcher allowed a pilot to launch a devastating salvo before their quarry realized the vessel was carrying ordnance. Fang fighters typically cost between 120,000 to 185,000 credits.
