The Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft, or Firespray-class starship, or Firespray-class interceptor, was a patrol and transport starship designed by Kuat Systems Engineering initially for use by the Republic Correctional Authority.

Characteristics

Slave I schematics.

As a prisoner transport, the ship featured numerous holding cells and devices made for the most exotic of creatures. A trademark of the ship was that it landed horizontally with the drive engines facing the surface and the cockpit facing upward. To transition to normal flight mode, the ship rotated so that the cockpit faced forward while the drive engines faced rearward.

The stock ship was well armed and armored for its size, with on-board storage space and room for several passengers and/or cargo. Roughly as fast as Koensayr's Y-wing starfighter/bomber, the ship had more than enough speed and maneuverability to intercept smugglers and other renegades.

History

Jango Fett's Slave I.

Kuat Systems Engineering produced several prototypes shortly before the Battle of Naboo. However, all but one were destroyed when Jango Fett staged a prison break in Desolation Alley. Jango kept the sole remaining Firespray, renaming it Slave I. Kuat Systems Engineering, suffering from the financial loss of the prototypes, eventually mothballed the project and concentrated instead on starship upgrades.

Many years later, K.S.E. found themselves on a more secure financial footing, and again desired to enter the starship market. The company then re-introduced the Firespray-class, hoping to build upon the reputation of the remaining prototype and its legendary pilot, Boba Fett.

The new Firesprays were, like the original prototypes, designated as patrol and attack ships and perfectly suited for law enforcement and interdiction missions. With Kuat Systems Engineering keen to expand the market for the ship, they had started to promote how easily the ship could be customized and upgraded to fulfill a myriad of roles.

At least ten were used by the Mandalorian Protectors during the Yuuzhan Vong War.

The Star Wars wiki of fan invention.


The Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft was an offensive and patrol vehicle used in various scenarios. Named after a warrior that lived one hundred years before the Battle of Naboo, it was said that it could save lives on many aquatic worlds if it was not hijacked by enemy forces. The ship was an important one for bounty hunters such as those in the Fett family. After the death of Jabba the Hutt, the Slave I was located and taken by rebel pilot Gasdo Hadfo, a Human from Tatooine, and he used it until it was destroyed at the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War.
