Usually deployed with 5 units per [[Imperial Star Destroyer]], the Assault Gunboat is the first Imperial starfighter equipped with a Deflector Shield and a Hyperdrive.  This meant that it tended to bear the brunt of any hit and fade or remote strike missions unescorted until the deployment of the [[TIE Fighter|TIE Avenger]].  This meant that the ship tended to suffer heavy losses against Rebel interceptors especially the nimble [[A-wing]].  Despite this since it was the only Imperial light unit that could perform the missions it did receive a larger deployment then was usual for the starfighter-wary Imperial Navy.
