QuoteEdit

A prototype vehicle seldom used by the RSF, the Naboo Bomber combines deadly Nubian technology with Naboo spaceframe design. The heavily armored vehicle carries devastating energy bombs for air-to-ground combat while standard laser cannons allow the pilot to engage airborne threats. A rare sight in the skies above Naboo, the bomber is nonetheless an important component in the Naboo's fight against the Trade Federation. Captain Panaka - Star Wars: Battle for Naboo.

DescriptionEdit

The Naboo NB-1S Royal Bomber, or Naboo bomber, was a prototype vehicle rarely used by the Royal Naboo Security Forces, and designed as a testbed for emerging Naboo technologies in the Long-Range Strategic bombing theatre. Using the standard N-1 fighter as a starting point, Naboo engineers designed a dedicated craft to deliver explosive payloads through bombardment. It combined deadly Nubian technology with Naboo spaceframe design. It was the successor of the NB-1 Royal Bomber. [2][1] The NB-1S has 5 engines for its increased power requirements: 2 [2] Modified Nubian 321s, 2 Secondary engines [2] and 1 other engine of unknown type [2] There is no Hyperdrive [1] The NB-1S is equipped with Shield Generators [2] and is armed with 2 Laser cannons [2] and 1 Ion bomb chute [1] with 30 Ion bombs [1]in place of the standard proton torpedo system. Crew consists of 1 Pilot [2] and 1 Astromech droid[2] 2 Passengers can also be carried. [1] The Bomber can also carry 5 metric tons of caRgo. [1] Consumables supply for the pilot is sufficient for 2 weeks. [1] The type was first used by the Naboo Royal Space Fighter Corps [2] C. 32 BBY[3], and remained in use throughout the Rise of the Empire era [2]

Like the N-1 starfighter, the NB-1S Royal Bomber's armor was a yellow light alloy armored hull and its overall design was the same as the standard N-1 fighter, and the craft was also protected by a deflector shield. The NB-1S also featured a socket for an astromech droid. The pilot had access to communications systems.[2]

An updated version of the NB-1S Bomber was the NB-1T Royal Bomber.[4]

The Naboo NB-1T Royal Bomber was the successor of the NB-1S Royal Bomber.

CharacteristicsEdit

The NB-1T Royal Bomber was a bomber used by the Naboo Royal Space Fighter Corps and incorporated a separate seat for the bombardier. The Naboo Royal Space Fighter Corps preferred Human judgment over that of targeting computers. In an emergency situation when the pilot was knocked out, the bombardier could transfer piloting functions to his station. The craft was equipped with proton bombs.
