This question already has an answer here:

In the Last Jedi,

Holdo ran the Raddus into the First Order fleet at light-speed, doing massive damage.

Why has no-one thought of this before? Fit a light-speed drive to a cheap ship, and make your own super missile. You could even fill it with a warhead for added damage. Why is it not a standard tactic?

Not only do you have incredible tactical speed advantage (compare this to the slow projectiles as the FO fleet shot at the Raddus, and it even looks faster than energy bolts), but it seemed to ignore the shields.

  • Think about hyperspacing through Death Star.. – Captain Cold Dec 18 '17 at 1:58
  • Mine was to use light-speed AS a small cheap weapon. The possible duplicate is a different context. – squire55 Dec 18 '17 at 2:35
  • Same answer, though: only a big ship would work, and they're not cheap. – Harry Johnston Dec 18 '17 at 3:00
