Background: The Porax-42 had interstellar range and was fitted with highly effective, long-distance sensor systems that provided early warning of enemy activity. It was based off the successful Porax-38 model. Each sensor was mounted in a forward facing cone along with the scanning systems, and both were connected to powerful jamming devices. These large P-42 fighters-C were also capable of independent hyperspace jumps, which enabled them to defend sector space. Versatile thrusters, dual-reactor systems, and high-capacity deflector shielding made them a valuable asset to the Loyalist forces. Rather than using a single shield generator the ship had a deflector shield projector web. This web covered a large portion of the ship and had many individual heat sink cells embedded into it.

The interstellar range of these vessels also allowed them to take more punishment and they could endure longer, more arduous missions than tiny, fleet-based fighters.

The Porax-42 was manufactured by Buuper Torsckil Abbey Devices and only required one pilot, who had to wear a protective breathing mask. It had enough consumables for 20 days of air, fuel, and food. Its primary armament was two High-power laser cannons. Each laser cannon is connected to a beam-amplification chamber that severely increases the laser’s intensity and heat damage output.
