Needle starfighters were long-distance weapons with hyperspace rendezvous capabilities produced by Loronar Corporation.

CharacteristicsEdit

They utilized CCIR technology, enabling them to be centrally controlled and therefore be very small due to the absence of a pilot and computing systems. They were essentially robotic cylinders armed with laser cannons, which was amazing considering their small size. Their size made them hard for sensors to detect, while they were painted black to prevent visual detection. They were powered by Tsils. Bith-made miniature hyperdrives were provided by Seifax, who also built the tiny hulls.

HistoryEdit

These starfighters operated in swarms and were fully capable of slowly demolishing much larger capital ships, even Star Destroyers, as the batteries of these vessels could not target the tiny vessels. Even starfighters had difficulty targeting the small, fast needles. However, all known vessels were disabled when Luke Skywalker caused the return of all the tsils that controlled the CCIR technology essential for running the Needles to Nam Chorios.
