Description: Introduced after the Battle of Endor, the D'Asta Engineering Omega-8 Defence Starfighter was designed for defence of D'Asta interests although the fighter won a number of sales across the galaxy after its impressive performance against Remnant Imperial Forces that attacked D'Asta. Based on the Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter, the Omega-8 took all of that fighters good features and tried to compensate for its weaknesses, adding newer composite armour and energy shielding as well as increasing the fighters weapon load. The front of the fighter was radically modified adding a charging laser cannon capable of massive amounts of damage to other fighters, as well as quad light laser cannons to use while the main cannon is charging. The lack of hyperspace capability hampered sales of this fighter and its use remained high only amount D'Asta forces.
