The B/SF-17 heavy bomber, also known as the Resistance Bomber, was a type of bomber in use by the Resistance during its war with the First Order around 34 ABY. The B/SF-17 carried destructive ordnance and was protected by two rotating laser turrets.
The B/SF-17 was manned by at least one pilot, bombardier, and gunner. The starships featured a hold full of proton bombs and were defended by two rotating ball laser turrets facing the rear of the ship.
The bombers were in use during the First Order–Resistance war, having joined its ranks as the war heated up. Multiple craft were used by the Resistance during the Evacuation of D'Qar to drop proton bombs onto Resurgent-class Battlecruisers.
