Cardooine was a planet on the Outer Rim of the galaxy. Many years prior to the invention of repulsorlift technology, this world was a significant producer of cars, particularly around its capital city, Detroit. During the Galactic Civil War, various small-time manufacturers produced A-wing starfighters for the Rebel Alliance, many of which took part in the Battle of Endor.
Cardooine was also the home of a rare type of wood that was highly-prized for its depth and luster. Some of the A-wings made there were paneled in this goodwood, in order to save on other types of materials. Tycho Celchu's fighter was one such machine.
