This unique "Ugly" was captured by the New Republic. The pirate crew named their fighter the "Vornskr", after the deadly Jedi-hunting beast of Myrkr. Perhaps over-confident of their own namesake, the crew of this bizarre fighter unwisely picked a fight with the Z-95 Headhunter Mk.1 flown by Jedi Master Mara Jade-Skywalker, which ended with their capture.

The craft was made from salvaged components of half of an X-Wing and half of a TIE-Fighter, combined in a very...ingenious configuration. The whole assembly is powered by 2 of the X-Wing's fusion engines plus a thruster unit mounted between the 2 fuselages, and is somewhat underpowered.

Despite it's strange configuration the "Vornskr" has surprisingly good handling characteristics. The pilot sits in the X-Wing portion, with the TIE cockpit occupied by a gunner operating a paired ion cannon-turret mounted on top of the cockpit ball. An S-foil from the X-Wing has been bolted vertically to the X-Wing fuselage to balance the single TIE solar array-wing on the opposite side. The "Vornskr" is also unusual in being equipped with very sophisticated sensors, some of which appeared to have been liberated from an Imperial probe droid.

The fighter is remarkably well armed and equipped, with dual shield generators, dual power generators, and 2 fixed laser cannons in addition to the ions. It retains the X-Wing's warhead launchers, as well as two dual external racks for additional heavy weapons.
