The Mechanized Assault Flyer was used for several purposes, including close-range bombardment and aerial reconnaissance. It was equipped with two beam cannons and a rear swiveling laser cannon that spun around the large disc-like posterior of the ship, as well as two more laser cannons in side-pods. The MAF had one pilot, a co-pilot, and a gunner for the turret. It was 18.2 meters long and could reach speeds of up to 820 kilometers per hour.
The MAF was produced by Haor Chall Engineering, while its similarly-shaped replacement, the Heavy Missile Platform, was built by Baktoid Fleet Ordnance. The MAF was used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
Behind the scenesEdit
The MAF appears in the 2004 video game Star Wars: Battlefront during certain multiplayer matches and on certain maps (including Bespin and Kashyyyk). It also appears in few certain ship to ship space battles in the 2005 sequel Star Wars: Battlefront II.
