Incom Z-95 Headhunter

The Z-95 Headhunter had been referred to in novels for some time before an illustration of one came out. If you needed a generic independent fighter class in your Star Wars story, the Z-95 was the go-to. The design was later fleshed out in games and comics.

Incom Corporation, the same that produced the infamous T-65 X-wing, mass produced Z-95s for the open market before the clone wars. By the time of the Galactic Civil War, some decades later, they were generally old, inferior, but cheap and very common. They would see use by independant local governments, smugglers, pirates, mercenaries, bounty hunters, and even by many cells of the Rebel Alliance in the early days of the Galactic Civil War. The original version of the Z-95 is almost always modified and upgraded to be marginally competitive with more modern fighters.
