The Ranger was developed in order to serve as Kefar's replacement for its aging fleet of TIE bombers an fighters. K-CO, the largest company on the planet and one that holds a total monopoly on its massive fuel and mineral reserves, was tasked with developing the new-generation spaceship. After a series of competitions, a hefty contract was signed with a Duros engineering company that supplied the schematics for the ship and agreed to develop brand new weapon systems to tailor Kefar's needs. The Ranger's commissioning was delayed countless times by various technical flaws that were constantly being discovered in its designs until it was finally introduced - 20 years later, into service in the Kefarian Navy. The Ranger is hardly a cheap and easy to mass-produce craft however Kefar, being a major exporter of fuel to the whole Galaxy and weaponry to the Hutts and criminal organizations, can afford to spend such a sum on a fighter.



The Ranger sacrifices much of its mobility for the sake of heavy armament and better shields. Its main role in combat is to counter corvettes and frigates as well as enemy bomber aircraft, its relatively heavy build is a major disadvantage in dogfights therefore it is always deployed with a squadron of TIE-fighters to cover it against enemy attacks. Several Ranger-class fighters, accompanied by lighter escort are capable of wrecking heavy havoc upon enemy capital ships if left unchecked. </div>
