X-Wing Ships: The M3-A

Greetings Programs,

I am working on what might be a slightly bigger than normal post about other things, also X-Wing related, but until that is done I thought I would through in another quick ship post. Sticking with the Scum faction again.

It featured a small, cramped cockpit, life support, an engine, a tiny shield generator, hyperdrive and a single weapon mount. The ship was in fact so small that it couldn’t even fit an astrogration computer and relied on allied ships to calculate the jump for them.
