The craft was well armed for its size, with twin blaster cannons and a turret-mounted ion cannon, giving the ship formidable firepower. Military grade shield generators protected the Pursuer from harm.
The ships became popular with Spar and his Mandalorian Protectors during the Clone Wars, before being made available to police forces across the galaxy when Imperial advisors were placed on the MandalMotors executive board after the rise of the Galactic Empire.
Boba Fett used a modified Pursuer enforcement ship for a while, naming it Slave II. It was nearly destroyed when it crashed into a planetary defense shield around Byss, but Fett managed to survive and the ship was later stolen from a drydock.
One of the most infamous Pursuers was the Viraxo-owned vessel Enkidu, which harassed the Azzameen family in several unprovoked raids against Twin Suns Transport Services until it was destroyed by the Azzameens, ending the heated feud.
During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the Mandalorian Protectors would use Pursuer-class enforcement ships to great effect, often with a slaved Gladiator-class assault fighter or two, to liberate worlds such as Gyndine. They would also see use during the Battle of Mandalore.
