The R-41 Starchaser is a multipurpose fighter, often found serving a variety of roles in both military and non-military organizations. This popularity is the result of wide availability, affordability, and easy modification.
It is generally considered outdated, but can still found in the hands of third party organizations. The R-41 has a slight advantage over the comparable Z-95 Headhunter with its ion cannons, and in the hands of expert pilots can pose a considerable threat to newer starfighters.
An upgraded version, the R-42 Starchaser, has recently hit the market.
