Does anyone have any clue what metal ships are made out of? I have been looking for this in the lore everywhere and could not find a reference.

What kind of ships? Starfighters? Transports? Capital ships? Frigates?

Fresh out of the factory freighters just have armored plating. Doesn't say what kind, but more then likely its just steel(or a variant) but given the various companies around and large number of Freighters that were made. Their hulls would probably be different in terms of what they put into their Freighters, this isn't even counting the ones that get modified.

I'm sure that it is something pretty hefty if the ship in question is equipped with a hyper drive.
Seems to me it would need to be incredibly sturdy to withstand light speed.

Titanium, Alusteel, and Durasteel. Those were the ones I was able to find. I imagine durasteel to be the most plentiful/in-demand/reliable for multipurpose starships.

They dont go lightspeed in 'normal space' so it probably isnt relevant for the actual armor but the structure has to be sturdy I'm sure. There are several kinds of 'steel' in the universe that they use for structure, armor etc.
