The Rabaka Siege Fighter is said to have been used by B'ob the Bounty Hunter around 2,900 BBY. Legend says that while on Nar Shadda, B'ob was offered an enormous sum by some unknown source to track down and destroy a target. The target? A Megablokaina Capitol Ship.
B'ob wisely chose the Rabaka Siege Fighter as his transportation. Now the Rabaka is actually TWO ships - a pod and a cargo carrier - held together by an energy binder. At the push of a button, the pod can release from the larger body. While this larger section is usually used to carry cargo, B'ob outfitted his Rabaka with a 5,000,000,040 megaton warhead. B'ob fought through the Megablokaina blockade with the Rabaka's fairly large arsenal of laser cannons. Then B'ob aimed the Rabaka at the capitol ship and released the carrier...
...But the Megablokaina capitol ship was stronger than expected. It survived the warhead assault. So B'ob, without hesitation, turned back towards the capitol ship. He was going to get his bounty. He sped towards the gigantic ship in the little pod with all his might... ...and rammed it.
There was no way that anyone within a planet's radius survived the devastation, but many speculate that one man did: B'ob...

Kuat Drive Yards' TX-37 I-Wing Starfighter was a uniquely shaped spy craft during the reign of the Empire. Its' slim shape and dark coloration made it difficult to blast in dogfights, and in the event of a serious hit, the swiveling cockpit could detach as an escape pod. Perhaps the most famous I-Wing pilot was the notorious Alterf Skendiv, whose various missions contributed to the Imperial takeover of hundreds of planets. Alterf's personal I-Wing went through numerous modifications, including the addition of a Stygium crystal cloaking device. Sadly, Skendiv's trusty vessel was destroyed in an asteroid collision, but it's rumored the Alterf survived by ejecting in his escape pod.

Both of these are outstanding. If the contest was a pairing of fighters against other pairs of fighters, these two would dominate. Really, really good.

Congrats on moving on, mate! Didn't expect to leave so early, but then I guess I didn't expect to have you as an opponent! :P Now I guess it's about time to focus more on finals, the holidays, finals, and did I mention finals?

Good luck.
