When The Republic Navy's coffers began to overflow with credits during The Restoration, the Navy sponsored one of the greatest engineering contests in years. More than three dozen shipwrights were solicited to submit designs for the "Generation Tomorrow Starfighter," intended to replace the Star Saber XC-01 Starfighter as the stock Vehicle in the Navy's arsenal. The winning design- coproduced with the Republic though it's Republic Fleet Systems consortium of manufacturers- is a Starfighter for the ages.
The 9.2-meter-long Aurek Tactical Strikefighter combines speed and maneuverability, with the ability to deal surprising amounts of damage. Ease of refueling and rearmament make the Aurek Tactical Strikefighter ideal for Capital Ship squadrons. And their simple fuselage minimizes production time, to such an extent that the Republic frequently foregoes all but the most minor repair work, choosing instead to ship out new Strikefighters. This results in many scrapped Aurek Tactical Strikefighters finding their way into civilian use.
The chevron-shaped fighter's wings can be reconfigured in different attack positions, one of which resembles the Aurebesh letter that inspired the craft's name.
