Republic "Scimitar" assault starfighter, deployed alongside the Jedi Starfighters during the Clone Wars.
About this creation
Built: September, 2004
This is the Old Republic's Delta-9 "Scimitar" assault fighter. While Jedi Starfighters played a pivotal role in the Clone Wars, they had firepower that was less than ideal. Republic technicians went back to the drawing boards and came up with this.
The weaponry this ship carries is comparable to that of the Republic Gunship (minus the rocket launchers) but many of the components had to be miniaturized for use on a ship this size. For the remainder of the Clone Wars, Jedi starfighters were reserved for Jedi use, while these starships were used exclusively by the Clone Troopers.
This is spectacular. The large engines and extensive greebling really make this a good looking ship. The weapons are also quite formidable and the overall design is sleek and well done. This is one of the best fighters I have seen in quite some time. Nice build.
