Description: The Kuat Drive Yards Star Cutter is a fast transport vessel bearing some resemblance to the Star Destroyers and Acclimator vessels. The Star Cutter is designed purely for speed, capable of outrunning many starfighters, it has no weapons, and little shields or hull armour. One third of the vessels hull is taken up by its engines, and half of the entire mass is taken up by them and the vessels reactors. However even given the vessels immense speed, it can still be easily taken down by Interceptors, making it a easy target for Rebel A-Wings, meaning that the Empire never purchased the vessel in any significant numbers, however a number of transport companies did, and through these the vessels were obtained by the Rebellion. Even though the design is not well suited to convertion to a warship, the high speed did compensate for a number of the vessels other inadequacies. Star Cutters are very expensive, but still hold their title as one of the fastest ways of moving cargo around the galaxy, remaining one of Kuat Drive Yards most successful non-military designs.
