"We need air support! Locate and destroy their main base."
―A Tof warrior scrambles their starfighters.[src]

The Tof starfighter was a starfighter built for the Tof armada.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

It was designed with a backwards-sloping cockpit that was flanked by two weapons pontoons. Twin engines were mounted to the undercarriage of the cockpit and the design was similar in performance to the A-9 Vigilance interceptor.[2] The starfighters were all painted blue in color.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Starfighter undercarriage.

All Tof capital ships in general had at least one starfighter squadron each.[2]

The bulk cruiser Merriweather carried at least one squadron of these fighters as part of its complement. During the Battle of Saijo, they were requested to provide air cover to the ground forces under attack, but when the Alliance of Free Planets jumped its forces into the system, the Tof fighters were forced to engage Gold Squadron and the Millennium Falcon, led by Lando Calrissian. Almost half of the starfighters were destroyed before the Merriweather surrendered to the superior Alliance forces.[1]
