Description: The S-161 "Stinger" XL was a model of luxury yacht manufactured by Latero Spaceworks. Built for wealthy executives, the Stinger was fast and elegant, unique among the utilitarian starships used by the Galactic Empire. Five years after Order 66, Greez Dritus piloted one such yacht, known as the Stinger Mantis.

Characteristics
Spaceframe
The Stinger class uses a rotating wing design, similar to other spacecraft such as the T-6 Shuttle and Kom'rk-class fighter/transport. Unlike these spacecraft, Stingers have an asymmetrical wing, with a large stabilizing fin counterbalancing an engine pod. The wing is used for both atmospheric and space maneuvering. The standard position of the wing in-flight is with the engine pod rotated to be directly below the hull. To turn left, the wing is rotated counterclockwise and vice versa to turn right. In order to allow the Stingers to land on uneven or crowded areas, such as in a small spaceport, the engine pod is rotated until horizontal while the stabilizing wing continues to rotate until it reaches a vertical position, creating a 90-degree angle. It is unknown if it is possible to land Stingers in small hangar bays, like those of Star Destroyers or MC 80 Star Cruisers. Another unique feature of the Stinger is the belly-mounted cockpit. To compensate for the reduced visibility by blocking the ceiling, a significant portion of the floor is replaced with transparisteel.

The dual laser cannons are located in the bow, above the cockpit. While this is light armament for a ship of its size, Stingers are classified as Luxury Yachts and, in all likelihood, most Stingers saw little action.

Propulsion
Stingers use a horizontally-mounted pair of engines at the rear of the hull for primary propulsion and an outboard engine pod for secondary propulsion and manoeuvring. Stingers also come equipped with a hyperdrive and navigation unit.
