The A519 Invader close support starfighter was a starfighter manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards. The A519 was designed for close support during planetary invasion, space station or capital ship boarding, and escorting dropships and assault shuttles. The Invader was armed with two twin laser cannons, and they could be configured to fire in a focused area for more damage. It was equipped with heavy-duty shielding and hardened alloy armor plating to improve its toughness. This made the Invader very durable, but much less maneuverable making it vulnerable to top-of-the-line starfighters.
