The Sabaoth starfighter was a starfighter used by the Captain Cavik Toth's Sabaoth Squadron during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. They carried a total of four laser cannons and were piloted by one individual. Sabaoth starfighters saw extensive action during the Occupation of Karthakk.
The Sabaoth starfighter comprised two down and forward-sloping wings attached to a small cockpit. The design was based on that of an attacking bird of prey. The fighter's two twin laser cannons were located on each wingtip, and on either side of the cockpits bottom, offering a wide fire arc.
They were weakly-shielded and designed to attack in number similar to TIE fighters meaning that once the shields were down, one hit would destroy the whole starfighter. Sabaoth fighters were carried aboard Sabaoth destroyers, and often flew into battle alongside heavy Sabaoth Defender fighters.
Nym's pirate forces ran afoul of these deadly starfighters during their battles with Captain Toth's squadron on Nod Kartha and over the Karthakk system prior to the Clone Wars. Jedi Master Adi Gallia and her Padawan, Siri Tachi, also engaged these nimble fighters over Geonosis as they prevented Toth's hex-equipped fleet from attacking the Grand Army of the Republic.
