    Fenn's Firespray

    I recently picked up some die cast minitures, Fett's slave 1 and an unnamed firespray simply call Firespray interceptor. I know some other mandos had Firesprays of their own but I was curious to know if this one's paintjob matched any known ship in the universe. Other than Fett himself I would say the next most notable mando to fly a firespray would be Fenn shysa. Could this be his ship, and if not ,does anyone know what his ship looked like or possibly have an image of it?

    I think Hasbrosa Reopaintish had that specific ship.

    Hmm..this is interesting. Because if you ever played Bounty Hunter, it explains the origins of how Jango gets a firespray. The ship is sopposed to be a prototype, used on the prison astroid, Oovo iv. In the game, you steal the firespray (because Jaster's ship is destroyed) and in the cutscene when he fly's out of the hanger, he pulls a 180 and destroys the hanger with all the other firesprays. It even mentions that the firespray is the last of its kind.

    Fenn Shysa never had a Firespray. The "fluff" on the back of the packet it came in explains its existence:

    Reintroduced around the time of the Battle of Yavin to capitalize on the folk-hero status of infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett, the Firespray-class patrol ship has become a popular all-purpose ship for those wealthy enough to afford one. With speed and armament equal to that of a Rebel Y-wing fighter, the Firespray is much more powerful than most private craft, making it a ship that many Imperial commanders tend to look at askance. Though it is seen by many as the ship of choice for the bounty-hunter wannabe, in point of fact it is a demanding vehicle that requires a skilled pilot to realize its full potential.
    Few Mando's used Firesprays until the start of the Vong War when the Mandalorian Protectors has five or six of them.

    Re: Fenn's Firespray

    Your right, I was mistaken about fenn owning a firespray. I got my hands on a copy of bounty unter, im bout to leave the prison level so the firespray scene is soon. It turns out though that there were other mando at the helm of firesprays. I found this lil bit of info, not sure how reliable it is...

    Kuat Systems Engineering produced several prototypes shortly before the Battle of Naboo. However, all but one were destroyed when Jango Fett staged a prison break on Oovo IV. Jango kept the sole remaining Firespray, renaming it Slave I. Kuat Systems Engineering, suffering from the financial loss of the prototypes, eventually mothballed the project and concentrated instead on starship upgrades.

    Many years later, K.S.E. found themselves on a more secure financial footing, and again desired to enter the starship market. The company then re-introduced the Firespray-class, hoping to build upon the reputation of the remaining prototype and its legendary pilot, Boba Fett.

    The new Firesprays were, like the original prototypes, designated as patrol and attack ships and perfectly suited for law enforcement and interdiction missions. With Kuat Systems Engineering keen to expand the market for the ship, they had started to promote how easily the ship could be customized and upgraded to fulfill a myriad of roles.

    At least ten were used by the Mandalorian Protectors during the Yuuzhan Vong War.
