Apex Invader

The Apex Invader was an odd heavy gunship design introduced approximately
fifteen years following the Battle of Endor. Designed solely to take on
heavy cruisers, the Invader was equipped with a wide array of heavy weapons
and heavy armor.

The design itself was rather unique, featuring a massive superstructure
jutting from the main body of the vessel towering to an overall height
almost equal to the overall length. The concept behind this was that it
would better space out the forward firing weapons to create a much wider
area of damage on a target. However, it also made the Invader a much
easier target.

While the Invader was useful against such targets as star destroyers in
small groups, they almost always took heavy damage due to their large
target profile. This downfall is what ultimately made several possible
buyers back out, including the New Republic and the Corporate Sector
Authority.

Instead, Apex began selling the Invader illegally on the open market to
pirates, smugglers, private corporations and anyone willing to pay the
rather large price.

As a pirate ship, the Invader functioned beyond all expectations. Easily
capable of attacking and disabling several ships alone. It would soon
become the scourge of several rim territories.
