Star Wars Glossary

My Padawans, its time our subforum has a decent SW glossary. I decided to make a quite simple one referencing the most commonly used acronyms.

TIE: Twin Ion Engine
Bursting from Imperial hangar bays in gnat-like clouds are the standard starfighters of the Imperial arsenal, the TIE starfighter. The single-seater short-range vessel lacks a hyperdrive, and as such requires deployment from launch bases and capital ships.

Acronyms as follows: P-38 or UF, SI, LAAT/c, and TTF
EDIT: I forgot the TX-130S Fighter Tank or Saber Class Tank (SCT), the name was changed to IFT-X Fighter Tank after The Clone Wars.
EDIT #2: I also forgot the Droid Gunship (DGS), Venator Class Star Destoyer (VCSD) or its common name Republic Atttack Cruiser (RAC), and the Unstable Terrain Artillery Transport (UT-AT) it's also called the Trident because of its 3 forward weapons. Gee I'm very fogetful today. X-D
Oh, also Yoda the proper acronym for All Terrain Open Transport is AT-OT not AT-OP. :-P ;-)

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it.
Edit! Edit for your lives!
