Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Ixiyen was designed to be a dominant force in the average fighter-on-fighter confrontation. It was also armed and protected well enough to be able to harry much larger ships.
History[edit | edit source]
Although not used in large numbers by any governmental organizations, it was not for lack of quality or performance. The Ixiyen was a deadly opponent, capable of holding its own against most of its contemporaries in front-line combat craft.
The Ixiyen's focus on starfighter combat made it a fine choice for pilots expecting to meet resistance in flight. As a result, the Ixiyen was used quite extensively in the time of the Galactic Civil War by mercenaries and agents of Black Sun, as well other independent groups.
