Deck Fighter

Deck Fighter

Designed to be a space superiority fighter, the KDN-4 Deck Fighter from the Outer Rim-based Sashanna Shipyards has proven itself to be the company's biggest success. Armed with four twin laser cannons, this particular fighter has been known to have a fighting power similar to the X-Wing fighter at only 80% of the cost. Its only drawback is its slower tactical and hyperdrive speed.
