The Light Droid Starfighter was the predecessor of the Vulture-class droid starfighter. It was incapable of walking and, while on the surface, could only move about on repulsor jets. It was intended mostly as a stop-gap design until the Vulture-class could enter service, and its known use was on the planet Naboo. Some were also deployed during the Battle of Aereen, but were mostly destroyed.
Behind the scenesEdit
The actual designation of this model is unknown, as it is only called "Droid Starfighter" in the Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds video game. It is referred to as the "Light Droid Starfighter" in this article to avoid confusion with other models of droid starfighters, such as those of the more widely-recognized Vulture-class.
