Description: The TriLex Flat-Fish is a heavy starfighter armed with both Ion and Laser Cannons, making it a useful fighter for stopping vessels without destroying them. While a contemparary of the Y-Wing, the Flatfish has a few advantages over that fighter, while the Y-Wings bomber status has advantages over the Flatfish. However the Flatfish's sleek profiles, and the fact it doesn't need an astromech droid to operate has made it a popular vessel, with a variety of customised models on the market. The Ion Cannons can be easily removed and replaced with proton torpedo launchers, and many owners prefer to upgrade the weak laser cannons with something with a little more kick. Chromed Flatfish were popular during the final days of the Old Republic as diplomatic escorts, and royal fighter squadrons, however by the time of the Empire, these flashy paint jobs had been replaced by more servicable and practical ones.
