"We've Got Your Back"

About one and a half years after the Battle of Yavin, Duro Galactic Engineering Corporation bought out a small local company, Treichel Sublight. Treichel made top quality sublight drives, but they didn’t reach a large enough market to break even and they were failing. Duro Galactic bought them to produce all of their engines. The production of the Treichel Neon Sublight drives inspired Duro Galactic Engineering to design a top quality starfighter.

It would take a full year for a good starfighter to turn out of Duro Galactic, but eventually the L5 Starfighter line emerged, specifically, the L5-920C. The L5-920C was the first starfighter that featured an innovative design as well as effective technology. One of the innovative designs with the L5-920C is the “Trailblazer,” two high powered blasters on the rear of the starfighter that fires on ships that trail it. The ship is loaded with recent Friend-or-Foe data and the rear blasters are controlled by a droid aided with a strong targeting system. The fighter was sold on the slogan, "We've got your back." The starfighter also featured three Heavy Laser Cannons on each of its two descended wings. This descended wings design, would later be mass produced in the A-9 Vigilance Interceptor by Kuat Drive Yards. It also carried a small Proton Torpedo Launcher on the underside of the body of the craft. Duro Galactic managed to build a decent fighter at about the price of an X-Wing. Some Rebel squadrons flew the craft, but many private armies, who didn’t want ships that were already defined by either navy, bought many of them.
