The Z-95 Headhunter was a multi-purpose starfighter manufactured by jointly the Incom Corporation and Subpro. Despite being considered outdated, the Z-95 was durable and adaptable to a variety of different roles, causing many to recognize it as a versatile and respectable snub-fighter. Countless variants of the Headhunter were produced, including a variant designed specifically to be piloted by the Grand Army of the Republic's pilots during the Clone Wars. It was the forerunner of the popular T-65B X-wing starfighter.[1]

Even after the end of the Clone Wars, Z-95 Headhunters were, according to Wilhuff Tarkin, common enough to "have come from anywhere." Several were used by Berch Teller's rebel cell in their fight against the Galactic Empire.[3]

They were used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Although slightly slower and less maneuverable than its successor, this craft was armed with center-mounted ion cannon that is capable of penetrating shields and giving damage to targets under its cover. The Z-95 Headhunters were a close air support staple of Rebel squadrons.[2] The TIE fighter pilots of the Imperial Navy referred to Z-95s as "skulls".[4]

Z-95s were still present in the galaxy over 30 years later.[5] Resistance pilot Poe Dameron was able to acquire three of them for the covert mission Operation: Sabre Strike.[6]
