The HLAF-500, known as the Heavy/Light Attack Fighter or Light Attack Fighter (Upgraded), was a modified version of Corellian Engineering Corporation's earlier LAF-250 patrol fighter, which the Corellian Defense Force demanded to compensate for the combat weakness of the original design.

The HLAF-500 retained the basic LAF-250 fighter platform, but replaced the underpowered drives with SoroSuub 9X2 fusial thrust engines, and supplemented the original armament of twin lasers with extra weapons hardpoints, normally outfitted with a pair of proton torpedo launchers. The upgraded fighter also boasted slightly improved shields and maneuverability.

The resulting fighter boasted very fast acceleration, allied to a decent armament and dogfighting capability. It was probably the basis of the Corellian Attack Fighters of the Second Galactic Civil War.
