Description: The CF9 Crossfire starfighter was a starfighter produced by Incom Corporation around 130 ABY and used by the Galactic Alliance and the Galactic Alliance Remnant.
It was a large fighter, with four S-foils in front of a bulky fuselage for a wide laser crossfire effect. The Crossfire was designed to cross long distances to reach its target, inflict maximum damage, and return home in one piece.
It was said to be the heir to the design lineage of the T-65 X-wing starfighter and the Z-95 Headhunter, as reflected in the fact that the lower wing could rotate, folding away for landing and dropping down for combat. The pilot controlled the fighter from a enclosed cockpit module in the rear of ship which was entirely sealed off from the rest of the vessel and also contained its sublight drive. In case of being shot down or some other emergency, the pilot would eject by disengaging the module from the rest of the fighter and use the sublight drive to steer towards safety. Though cramped, the cockpit module was big enough for two beings, with a second seat facing the modules rear in a configuration similar to the Snowspeeders the Rebel Alliance used on Hoth. However, in size and bulk it also resembled heavy fighters like the Slayn & Korpil B-wing starfighter and the Sienar Fleet Systems Aleph-class starfighter developed during and after the Yuuzhan Vong War.
