The A-9LR Vigilance is the long range varient of the A-9. The A-9B was
designed at the height of the Imperial civil war by Kuat Drive Yards, mainly
to deploy at their own shipyards and factories. The A-9LR is slightly slower
and less maneuverable than the original A-9 but boasts a slightly stronger
pair of laser cannons. The main fuselage was elongated, allowing room for
a gunner/navigations officer directly behind the pilot. The hull is a
simple affair, with a central control cockpit pod that contains the sensor
arrays, weapons, and all computer systems. Two wings connect to the powerful
engines which are as long as the ship's frame and each have their own power
generators. The laser cannons have their own power generator as well, and
the computer control system can reroute power from any of these generators
to any other portion of the ship, allowing the pilot to cut power to the
weapons and limp home even if the engine power generators are taken out.
