Description: The Fang fighter, also known as the Protectorate fighter, or as the Protector Fang Fighter was a model of starfighter designed and used by the Mandalorian Protectors.
Fang fighters were fast and highly maneuverable ships designed specifically for combat. The craft's narrow attack profile and swivel-mounted wings that provided vectored-thrust control gave the fighter unmatched agility. These features allowed Fang fighters to perform maneuvers which few other ships were capable of, including the deadly Concordia Face Off maneuver.
Fang fighters were armed with wing-mounted laser cannons and a proton torpedo launcher beneath the cockpit that allowed a pilot to launch a deadly salvo before their quarry realized the vessel was carrying ordnance..
All Fang pilots were personally trained by Fenn Rau, leader of the Protectors during the Age of the Empire.
At some point following the Battle of Yavin, the Alliance to Restore the Republic acquired Fang fighters for use as powerful anti-vehicle air support in its conflict against the Galactic Empire.
