Background: The Scarab-class starfighter was a Trade Federation starfighter. It was the predecessor to the Vulture-class droid starfighter. It had a flat body and two outrigger wings, each connected to the main fuselage by a pair of heavy struts. The wings would lock down against the body while in normal flight mode, and spring open to achieve fire capability and maximum maneuverability when in combat.

This multiple-purpose fighter could attack targets in space, within a planet’s atmosphere, or on the ground. Even though it lacked the agility of the its successor the Vulture-class starfighter, the Scarab-class was equipped with strong armor and deflector shields. The Scarab featured a cockpit compartment and was normally piloted by a droid. It was also able to operate independently of a droid control unit, whereas the Vultures could not.
