The FC-1 flechette launcher was a model of flechette launcher produced by Golan Arms[1] that used a plasma-based firing mechanism. The weapon held six anti-personnel canisters containing hundreds of tiny, razor-sharp flechettes made of durasteel. When fired, its projectiles were capable of penetrating up to ten centimeters, even through the armor of an Imperial stormtrooper.[2] The design of the FC-1 inspired the creation of the DF-D1 Duo-Flechette Rifle at the hands of Salus Corporation.[1]

Following the Partisans' mission to Inusagi, during which Saw Gerrera used an FC-1 flechette launcher to assassinate Cor Tophervin, there was talk of banning such weapons from civilian use on that planet.[2]
