The Cutlass-9 patrol fighter, also known as the SoroSuub patrol fighter, was a starfighter manufactured by SoroSuub Corporation prior to the Clone Wars.

Design[edit | edit source]

Twelve meters in length, the Cutlass-9 was designed to protect SoroSuub Corporation interests in the Sullust system and across the galaxy. It was armed with twin laser cannons and a concussion-missile launcher.

History[edit | edit source]

A Cutlass-9 patrol fighter

During the time of the Galactic Republic, Jedi Master Saesee Tiin received one such ship from a group of Duros diplomats he had rescued from pirates. He modified the ship far beyond its standard configuration and named it Sharp Spiral.

The fighter was originally intended solely for SoroSuub's own defense forces, but the corporation also supplied large quantities of the fighters to its Confederacy of Independent Systems allies during the Clone Wars. After the war, the design became common among planetary defense forces and pirate bands.[2]

While production ceased after the Clone Wars, it resumed when Sorosuub began covertly aiding the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[2][4]

When Sullust seceded from the Galactic Empire and joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic, these vessels became part of the Alliance Fleet. Cutlass-9 starfighters continued to serve in the fleets of the New Republic.
