Edge of the Empire
A starfighter, or simply called fighter, was a small and maneuverable spacecraft designed for combat in the atmosphere or space. Certain models of bombers, gunships, transports, light freighters, shuttles, trainers, and atmospheric fighters could be considered starfighters as well, and often fulfilled many of the same functions.
Although the term was most commonly applied to starships, it could also include certain low-altitude airspeeders.
