The Flex Tube proton torpedo launcher was manufactured by Arakyd Industries. A pair of the launchers, which were ideal for bombing, was installed on the Koensayr BTL Y-wing starfighter. The Flex Tube launcher was notable for its ability to fire a wide variety of ordnance, including proton torpedoes, concussion missiles, proton bombs and cluster missiles.
Behind the scenes
The name "Flex Tube" probably reflects the "flexibility" of the weapon in being compatible with a wide range of ordnance.
