Starfury Starfighter

After the failure of the Hammerhead Starfighter, Wereling Spaceworks went to
work on a new fighter, a fighter that could compete with and out perform the
Sienar Fleet Systems' TIE fighters in an attempt to steal some of Sienar's
fighter construction contracts for itself. The result was the SF120.

Wereling corporate heads were thrilled to see the initial performance test
results. The next phase of testing involved actual combat against various
TIE/ln that Wereling had bought off of Sienar a few years ago. Wereling CEOs,
wanting to see actual combat results and not mock combat results, ordered
the first six SF120s to raid a Wereling owned convoy which they assigned a
medium carrier (which just happened to be carrying a full squadron of
TIE/ln) as escort. The SF120s dropped from lightspeed and quickly engaged
the convoy, destroying a light freighter on their first pass. The carrier
responded and launched its TIEs in response. Fifteen minutes later, each of
the TIE/ln were destroyed and one of the SF120s was destroyed as the TIE
flight leader took out its port engines, sending it veering into a bulk
freighter. The test pilots that took part in the raid gave the SF120 the
nickname, Starfury.

Overly pleased by the combat results, Wereling ordered them into construction
and within two months, Wereling had four full wings (288 Starfuries) at its
disposal. These first production Starfuries were dubbed the SF120A series
and featured an ejectable cockpit section much like the Hammerhead but it
was no where near as customizable. The Starfury, in appearance is a rugged
looking ship, with four massive, sloping pylons jutting outward from the
stubby fuselage. The ejectable cockpit is located on what would be the
starfighter's nose, ejecting forward, instead of upward like on the older
Hammerheads. At the end of each pylon is a large Setec CS-1L3 ion fission
engine with maneuvering thrusters mounted at ninety degree angles, allowing
for maximum maneuverability. The laser cannons are mounted under the cockpit
(but not mounted directly on the cockpit escape pod).

A few years after the construction of the first SF120As and around the time
of the Battle of Bilbringi and the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn, Wereling
technicians developed an advanced type of ion cannon, the electro-pulse
cannon. After another year of development, and into the campaign of the
clone Emperor Palpatine, Wereling had created a working model and began
installing them on an updated version of their Starfuries, the SF120B model.
