The Kom’rk-class fighter, also known as the Gauntlet fighter, was a kind of troop transport starfighter used by the Pre Vizsla led Death Watch and later by the Darth Maul led Shadow Collective during the Clone Wars. Built to quickly deliver up to two dozen troops into battle, it was also swift and agile enough to take on the role of a starfighter and, in the right hands, could go toe to toe with the Republic Navy’s Z-95 Headhunter and even the Imperial Navy’s TIE fighter. Its wings were special in that like the wings of the Fang Fighter, they could rotate around the main fuselage and improved maneuverability in dogfights. When the craft was landed, they would swing upwards and stay upright.
The two most notable craft of this line are the Gauntlet, which was the personal flagship of former Death Watch leader Pre Vizsla and which gives the class its nickname, and the Nightbrother, which was the personal craft of Maul till it fell into the possession of Ezra Bridger after Maul’s death at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
