After finding only fighters that have astromechs that are jump-capable in the books I have, I'm wondering: Are there any fighters in expansions or supplements that are jump capable and don't have an astromech?

(I'm talking here about an innate jump capability, not one with acceleration rings).

Or is it that, for fighter-sized ships, an astromech is a must-have if they are to be jump capable in the game setting?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Is this a matter of curiosity about a setting detail or are you trying to do something that needs a jump-capable fighter without an astromech? \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Jul 16 '16 at 21:43
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie My groups gms decided to not give out a freighter as group resource but instead starfighters. And that made me wonder if they in essence brought upon themselves 5 astromechs or not^^. So in essence curiousity about setting details according to the rpg (in the novels I know a few examples like the star killer from legends). \$\endgroup\$ – Thomas E. Jul 16 '16 at 21:48

If that's not what you meant, please feel free to revert and/or make your own edit. \$\endgroup\$ – SirTechSpec Jul 17 '16 at 5:36

    \$\begingroup\$ @SirTechSpec yepp I'm looking for things directly in the books (which is also why I put it into the rpg stackexchange as oppposed to scifi stackexchange) \$\endgroup\$ – Thomas E. Jul 17 '16 at 7:17

There are several starfighters in various supplements that have navicomputers instead of astromechs. Too numerous to list, but there is an amazingly through repository that has pretty much everything categorized for you. Just find the type of ship you want, and see what book it comes from!

In addition to ships with on-board navicomputers, you can always install an astrogation droid brain attachment—found on page 62 of Fly Casual.
