The Porax-38 Starfighter, also known as the P-38, is a tough, hyperdrive-equipped starfighter originally used by the Utapauns as part of the Utapau Skyforce. After the design was acquired and modified by Hoersch-Kessel Drive, it has become available for more widespread use.
The vessel has interstellar range and is fitted with highly effective, long-distance sensor systems that provide early warning of enemy activity. The large P-38 fighters are also capable of independent hyperspace jumps, which enable them to defend their territory at long range. Versatile thrusters, dual-reactor systems, and high-capacity deflector shielding make them a valuable asset to those that wield them.
The starfighters only require one pilot, who has to wear a protective breathing mask. It has enough consumables for 2 days of air, fuel, and food. Its primary armament is two laser cannons. The original fighter's tiny cockpit could only seat one short, stocky Utai, not the tall Pau'ans, but this was later modified by HKD and various groups to allow larger pilots.
