The Fang fighter, also known as the Protectorate fighter, was a model of starfighter designed and used by the Mandalorian Protectors.

CharacteristicsEdit

Zealous Recruit Protectorate Starfighter XWM

The Fang fighter was equally lethal in atmospheric combat

Fang fighters were fast[1] and highly maneuverable[10] ships designed specifically for combat. The craft's narrow attack profile[6] and swivel-mounted wings that provided vectored-thrust control gave the fighter unmatched agility.[10] These features allowed Fang fighters to perform maneuvers which few other ships were capable of, including the deadly Concordia Face Off maneuver.[6]

Fang fighters were armed with wing-mounted laser cannons and a proton torpedo launcher beneath the cockpit that allowed a pilot to launch a deadly salvo before their quarry realized the vessel was carrying ordnance.[3].

HistoryEdit

All Fang pilots were personally trained by Fenn Rau, leader of the Protectors during the Age of the Empire.[2] Notable Fang fighter pilots included the Mandalorian mercenaries Kad Solus[11] and Teroch,[12].

At some point following the Battle of Yavin, the Alliance to Restore the Republic acquired Fang fighters for use as powerful anti-vehicle air support in its conflict against the Galactic Empire.[9]

Behind the scenesEdit

Fang fighters were first appears in the Star Wars Rebels episode "The Protector of Concord Dawn," the thirteenth episode of the animated television series' second season, premiering January 27, 2016.[13] Later that same year, Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game released the Protectorate Starfighter Expansion Pack, providing additional details about the fighter.[1]

In a December 2016 update for the mobile game Star Wars: Commander, Fang fighters became available for use by players in their bases.
