Last year's model, at a significant discount!
The S-foils revolve around a quick-change reactor tube: mount the engine best suited to your mission in a matter of minutes instead of hours.
Making a tight atmospheric turn in urban combat? No problem! The independent S-foils can remain horizontal even while the primary airfoil drops out of vertical, giving you that little extra lift that might just make all the difference!
The 6 fusial thrusters provide much-needed redundancy in battle: thrust vectoring is maintained even in the face of a disabled thruster, and straight-line thrust remains available even if any two thrusters are taken out.
The primary airfoil supports stackable armored weapon pods; mount half a dozen lightweight weapons, or a few heavy ones, depending on mission and preference. (Structural limitations may apply.) The S-foil weapon pods are not stackable, but are similarly armored.
The cab-forward see-around cockpit and droid slot are combined into an escape pod with eight thrusters, itself mounted on the Gyro-stabilizer you know and love!
Have your integrated Nav-Computer and your favorite droid, too -- it never hurts to have a backup, does it? Your droid can target weapons and perform repairs while the integrated systems prepare your hyperspace jump -- to fame and glory!
