Multi role starfighter
The Liberator-class starfighter, also known by the Sith Empire as the Talon-class starfighter, is a model of starfighter used by the Galactic Republic before and during the Great Galactic War, Cold War and Second Great Galactic War.
The Liberator-class starfighter served as the primary defense against the Mk. VI Supremacy-class starfighter and Mk. VII advanced interceptor employed by the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War and the Cold War.
Like other starfighter and small transport designs of the era, excluding a few notable exceptions, the Liberator-class did not have a hyperdrive. This forced pilots to rely on larger ships, such as the Thranta-class corvette and Valor-class cruiser to deliver them to their destinations.
A variant of the Liberator-class, known as the Striker-class starfighter, has additional room for an Astromech droid and has more advanced systems. Jedi Master Satele Shan was known to have used the Striker-class starfighter on missions for the Republic.
Liberator-class starfighters were used to escort a diplomatic convoy of Republic Transport ships, who went to investigate unidentified warships that had invaded the Tingel Arm of the Galaxy. These fighters were obliterated by the Sith Empire's navy. Several fighters were also used to reclaim Alderaan following the Battle of Alderaan.
