  • Versatility: Designed for a variety of roles, Incom's new Crossfire line of starfighters is capable of anything from harassing enemy patrols to assault capital ships to even limited interceptor duty.
  • Long Reach: Firing in an intersecting cross pattern, the unique placement of the Crossfire's wing mounted laser cannons allows it to fire accurately from farther out than most comparable craft.
  • Non-specialized: The capacity for the Crossfire's design to do a little bit of anything means it is the master of nothing. With preferable alternatives of Incom design for most situations, the CF10 is more often the starfighter of choice when the threat is unknown.
  • Limited Firing Arc: The Crossfire's aft mounted double laser cannon doesn't have complete field of view or range of motion, severely reducing its effectiveness in neutralizing pursuers.
  • Prone to Overheat: Forced to pack a number of systems into a relatively compact bulky frame, the Crossfire's power requirements can put a serious strain on its engine. When engaging in extended high speed maneuvering or firing weapon systems at length, there is a risk factor of the Crossfire shorting and even stalling out completely. Experienced CF10 pilots must learn to become adept a 'threading the needle' between safety and optimum performance.

As part of ongoing efforts by the Galactic Alliance to further increase their diversity profile in terms of available craft for their starfighter corps, Incom was contracted to produce several newer lines of fighters meant to complement, if not oust the X-Wing from its seemingly immovable position as de facto starfighter of choice for most Alliance pilots. Starting with the fundamental s-foil design and then building out from there, the development team at Incom came up with a much shorter, somewhat bulkier craft. Noticeably different than the configuration of the X-wing, the Crossfire's four s-foils are placed in front of a bulky fuselage rather than on its sides. The rear s-foil is able to rotate, folding away for landing or dropping for combat situations. When attacking, the intersecting cross pattern of the wing mounted laser cannons allows for a longer reach than most comparable starfighters.

The fighter controls from an enclosed cockpit module in the ship's rear which is entirely separate from the rest of the vessel (except for the sublight drive), unlike more dangerous earlier Incom models the pilot can eject by disengaging the module and using sublight to steer to safety in case of being shot down or some other form of emergency. Although cramped, the cockpit module is capable of seating two sentients, the second seat facing the rear of the craft for use as an optional gunner. However, considering the limited firing arc of the Crossfire's aft gun and its tendency to perform high speed maneuvers in combat, gunners are not always assigned.

The CF10 was designed essentially to fly a long ways to its target, inflict as much damage as possible, and then return more or less in one piece. To that end, in attempting to anticipate every conceivable contingency the Crossfire would need to deal with, the Incom development team may have overdesigned the starfighter a little too much in an effort to knock the X-Wing from its pedestal that now seems unlikely. While some pilots have found this Mando army knife toolset invaluable, an unambiguous flaw in the design is the strain all this capability in one compact frame the Crossfire places on its Coldstar ion tri-engine. In certain instances of extended operations at high levels, this can cause a sublight or weapons malfunction in critical moments. As a result, the most capable Crossfire pilots have become adept at the art of goosing just what they need out of the starfighter's power systems, and nothing more.
