A-9 Vigilance Wing

Equipment»>Starships»>A-9 Vigilance Wing

The A-9 is a fighter designed by Kuat Drive Yards in
an attempt to win Imperial contracts away from
Sienar Fleet Systems. Unfortunately, it began produc-tion five years after the Battle of Endor, limiting its marketability. Although some lmperial Remnant commanders have ordered A-9s, the ships have not been a huge success. Some have even fallen into the hands of the New Republic, delivered by escaped workers from an oppressive Kuat factory world.

The A-9 is on par with an A-wing as a fast, maneuverable craft, granting a +4 bonus on all Pilot checks and attack rolls made with it. lt has twin laser cannons that allow it to deliver consistent damage, but lacks the heavy punch demonstrated by fighters with concussion missiles or proton torpedo tubes. lts small size and high speed make it excellent for quick raids against slow-moving capital ships. However, it has no shields or hyperdrive, making it a cheap and
easily destroyed fighter. A-9s are typically deployed in large numbers and replaced as needed.
