History and Background
The Z-95 Headhunter was a multi-purpose starfighter manufactured by jointly the Incom Corporation and Subpro. Despite being considered outdated, the Z-95 was durable and adaptable to a variety of different roles, causing many to recognize it as a versatile and respectable snub-fighter. Countless variants of the Headhunter were produced, including a variant designed specifically to be piloted by the Grand Army of the Republic's pilots during the Clone Wars. It was the forerunner of the popular T-65B X-wing starfighter.
Even after the end of the Clone Wars, Z-95 Headhunters were, according to Wilhuff Tarkin, common enough to "have come from anywhere." Several were used by Berch Teller's rebel cell in their fight against the Galactic Empire.
They were used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Although slightly slower and less maneuverable than its successor, this craft was armed with center-mounted ion cannon that is capable of penetrating shields and giving damage to targets under its cover. The Z-95 Headhunters were a close air support staple of Rebel squadrons. The TIE fighter pilots of the Imperial Navy referred to Z-95s as "skulls"
