The AirStraeker was a droop-winged aircraft fitted with underwing maser beam emitter fans. These cannons fired a spray of maser beams at a target. The AirStraeker accommodated a single pilot, seated behind a control stick within the canopy bubble.
The Killik forces led by Jaina Solo and Zekk on Tenupe had attacked the Chiss AirStraekers upon landing, but at least one squadron survived, and soon joined the battle. Jaina fought against their attacks, which laid waste to kilometers of the jungle and killed thousands of Killiks. Zekk, piloting a StealthX starfighter, hunted down the remaining AirStraekers in the skies above the battle.
