Echani Protectors

The Echa'olm-class starfighter was a small single person starfighter utilized near exclusively by the Echani Protectors. A well balanced fighter it was suited for various roles but excelled at patrol and bombing. The fighter was named after the Echa'olm a wolf like creature native to Eshan.

BackgroundEdit

The Echa'olm-class was created more then two centuries before the fall of the Republic. It was designed with the sole purpose of aiding the Echani Protectors in their duties as both special forces and sector guards. In this role the need of small combatants to patrol a distance from a primary capital ship, and to combat opposing fighters became necessary. Out of this need the Echa'olm was formed, to operate as a heavy variable role fighter within the ranks of the Protectors.

As a starfighter it was a very well balanced strike craft. Moderate armor and armament allowed the fighter to operate as both a heavy interceptor and escort fighter. Though it lacked warhead launchers the inclusion of hardpoints allowed for the inclusion of heavy weapons. Four hard points were located on each wing, allowing for a total of 16 concussion missiles to be loaded onto the fighter. Two larger hardpoints located on the bottom of the craft permitted the carrying of heavier concussion bombs.

The Echa'olm served the Echani Protectors from the time of their inception through the Clone Wars and well into the Galactic Civil War. This was possible due to the Protectors only fielding 100 wings at any given time. By fielding under 1000 craft the Protectors were able to quickly and relatively cheaply update and upgrade the fighters over the years. Through this more modern weapons, and engine upgrades could be installed on the ships pre-existing chassis, actually saving the Protectors millions of credits over the service lifetime of the fighters.
