Porax-38 Starfighter (4)
Basic info
First appearance: Revenge of the Sith
Relations: Baktoid Armor Workshop
Summary
The Porax-38 was a tough, powerful, long-range craft, which initially was designed and manufactured by Buuper Torsckil Abbey Devices from a planet Utapau. It was very effective and counted as equal to any other starfighter fielded by Republic. During the Clone Wars Utapau decided to stay with the Republic and not align itself with Confederacy of Independent Systems. Following that decision Utapau ceased to suplly Separatists with its products, and CIS leadership ordered Baktoid Arms Workshop to start producing a copy of very successful Porax-38 for their own use. When several Porax-38 starfighters were captured by CIS, BAW successfully copied the design and began to produce newly rechristened Rogue-class starfighters, which were virtually identical to Utapaun P-38s, but with several key modifications. One of such modifications was the removal of life-support systems, becuase Rogue-class was intended to be used by droid pilots, and became primary starfighter of General Grievous' MagnaGuards. It also provided free space necessary to pack in larger engines and more powerful weapons and allowed to slightly increase the cockpit size which initially was designed for short and stocky Utai natives. With some of the most powerful weapons and shields of any fighter craft anywhere in Republic space, the BAW-made P-38s presented a serious danger even to the legendary Jedi starfighters. Nevertheless, some variations of Rogue-class were produced with P-38s life-support systems intact to be used by living pilots. Infamous bounty hunter Cad Bane owned modified and enhanced P-38/Rogue hybrid starfighter, Xanadu Blood.
