The role of starfighters in a space battle is difficult to determine. The [[blaster]] and [[proton torpedo]] armament of starfighters has been described as inadequate to penetrate the [[shield]]s of [[capital ship|capital warships]], but such ships generally regard starfighters as threats, and squadrons of fighters have successfully attacked warships on their own in spin-off series like ''[[Star Wars: The Clone Wars]]''. How starfighters alone are able to threaten capital ships is a matter of speculation.
