Note Etti Lighters operated by the Skandrei Bandits (pirates) were refitted with a full nav computer, faster hyperdrive backup, 4 double turbolaser cannons and 6 of the original quad laser cannons. Crew complement increased, however the skeleton crew requirements and difficulty decreased. All other stats were unaffected.

 

    The Etti Light Transport, also known as the Etti Lighter is an unremarkable light cargo and passenger freighter that is normally employed in hauling small cargo or inter-system transport. However, in isolated star systems of the Corporate Sector, such as Duroon, the CSA repurposed the Etti Lighter to become light patrol and interdiction ships. Interestingly, several other governments have either adopted the Etti Lighter or have begun the process of adapting heavy freighters to the patrol role. This conversion was in service before the Battle of Yavin.

    In the Corporate Sector and surrounding space this patrol craft has gained a certain notoriety in that it is more than capable of carry out its assigned mission. To accomplish its new mission this conversion gave up cargo space in favour for a heavy duty power plant, improved sensors, turbolasers and a tractor beam emplacement. Pirates such as the Skandrei Bandits, who operate in the remote Kathol Outback purchased their Etti Lighters from an arms merchant operating out of the Corporate Sector. Other pirates such as Solar Terrors acquired their Etti Lighter when it fell victim to the pirate's hyperlane block.
