EQUIPMENT

DESCRIPTION
The Sun Crusher is a powerful, small starship originally developed at a secret Imperial research installation near the Maw. Based on an offshoot of the research which produced the original Death Star, the Sun Crusher was designed to eclipse the much larger station in destructive power, while maintaining a form factor similar to a small, high-performance starfighter.

The Sun Crusher is nigh invulnerable, lacking conventional shields but protected with a material known as layered molecular armor, which is invulnerable even to a glancing blow by a Death Star turbolaser. Though immune to enemy fire, it is equipped with 5 dual heavy laser turrets spread across its hull. Although the original Sun Crusher required several gunners in addition to the pilot, this new mass-production version has its turrets slaved to an automated gunnery system, capable of precision targeting against even the most nimble enemy craft.

The Sun Crusher's primary weapon, of course, is its resonance torpedo projector. Once fired, its projectile buries itself in the nearest star, causing a chain reaction which will eventually cause it to go supernova, all within a few hours. Any ship or small installation hit by this weapon will be instantly destroyed.

Currently, the Sun Crusher is mass produced by Maw Heavy Industries, who acquired the patents after a legal dispute with the New Republic. Well equipped and modestly priced, it has been offered to both the Sith Empire and the Jedi Order, and will soon enter service with both as their standard combat vessel. It is also available on the open market; currently, an accounting glitch has caused Maw Heavy Industries to advertise the craft for 5 credits, making it extremely accessible.

LEGALITY
Legal. Completely legal.

INTENT
To bring my favorite vessel from Legends forward into our site's fanon.
