The GAT-12 Skipray Blastboat is a light gunship in service of the Galactic Empire

Built by Sienar Fleet Systems, the manufactures of the venerable TIE series, the Skipray Blastboat is a small starship that can only be described as armed to the teeth. Too large to be called a starfighter but too small to be a capital ship the Blastboat is a capable starship with a class 2 Hyperdrive. The ship is armed with a high capacity shield grid as well as a powerful reactor making it able to absorb a massive amount of punishment. Weapons include Twin Ion Cannons on it's rotating wingtips as well as a third mounted in it's nose. Centrally mounted on the top of the ship is a Double Blaster or Turbolaser Turret(depending on the model). In the nose of the ship is also mounted both a Photon Torpedo and a Concussion Missile Launcher as well as a Tractor Beam Projector making the ship extremely capable in combat. Only the Rebellion's B-wing come close in packing this much compact firepower. The ship has a crew of 5, a pilot, co-pilot, Sensor officer, and two gunners. The ship is 25 meters long meaning that it can easily operate from most large capital ships as a parasite craft. The ship's wings rotate from vertical to horizontal for landing configuration.

The starfighter wary Imperial Navy was slow to generally deploy these ships leading to Sienar Fleet Systems opting to sell models of the vessel on the open market meaning that it serves as a backbone of many corporate, mercenary, pirate, and smuggler fleets.
