Imperial Starfighter with AKVs docked
Imperial Starfighter with a dozen AKVs.  Eleven are clamped to the (arbitrary) ventral surface for transport, and one is nosed into the forward service bay for maintenance/ re-armament.

Thought this model of starighter can carry a full dozen AKVs, it can only service six at a time, and then only if the microcutter and its modules are removed. It can only carry stores up to Imperial standards (a full year cruising )for four or, under crowding, six. But the ability to carry twelve lets this Starfighter execute a mission similar to WWII escort carriers - transport of fresh fighters to new postings.
