Summary
The Stinger was a Surronian assault ship given to Prince Xizor of the Black Sun crime syndicate in exchange for his assistance to the hive craft guild that created it. Although basically a Conqueror-class assault ship, the vessel was uniquely customized by its creators. By the Clone Wars, the ship had come into the hands of Galactic Republic Admiral Tarnese Bleyd, but Xizor reacquired it after his death. Xizor eventually presented it to his bodyguard, the Human replica droid Guri, who had it redesigned to meet her needs, radically overhauling the ship's systems. Among the systems upgraded by Guri were the hyperdrive and weapons, making the ship both fast and deadly. While it was presumed that the ship was destroyed along with Xizor's skyhook, It survived and continued to serve Guri as her personal transport even after the death of Xizor in 3 ABY.
The Stinger was extensively modified. For sublight travel it was equiped with 4 paired standard Surronian A2 and 4 paired A2.50. As for hyperspace travel, Guri replaced original engines with much more powerful CEC H2-1 engines. Because she was a droid, Guri completely removed and the space used to install new and enhanced equipment for all ship's systems. The Stinger was armed with two fire-linked ion cannons, turret mounted double laser cannons - almost as powerful as heavy laser cannon. Also it was equiped with an arsenal of proton torpedoes which could be fired backwards - very useful trick to fend off the pursuing craft of almost any size, including Imperial Star Destroyers.
