Rebel Pilots

Death Star Trench Run

Details

Description

The Rebel Alliance's starfighter corps was one of its greatest assets. There were nearly as many stories as there were pilots: Rebel starfighters were flown by Imperial defectors, reformed mercenaries, adventure-seeking farmboys, and daredevils who only truly felt alive in a cockpit. Regardless of their backgrounds, Rebel pilots learned to work together, relying on their wingmen as well as their training in countless battles against the Empire.

X-wing fighter

The backbone of the Rebel Alliance's starfighter corps, the X-wing fighter was prized for its versatility, offering superior firepower, good maneuverability, and the ability to travel through hyperspace. Rebel pilots flew X-wings against Death Stars at Yavin and Endor, and in many other battles against the Empire.

Y-wing fighter

These tough, dependable bombers had seen service since the Clone Wars, and Rebel pilots appreciated their durability while occasionally muttering that they maneuvered more like barges than fighters.

At Hoth, Rebel technicians modified T-47 airspeeders to better withstand the frigid conditions. Snowspeeders were two-men craft, with one Rebel pilot serving as a rear-facing gunner.

A-wing fighter

A-wing fighter

Compact and blazingly fast, A-wings were used by the Alliance for lightning raids against Imperial targets. Only the most capable Rebel pilots had reflexes good enough to take the controls of these interceptors.

B-wing fighter

B-wing fighter

These heavily armed fighters saw action at the Battle of Endor. Rebel pilots flew them from a cylindrical cockpit which remained upright during flight, with the B-wing's engines and weapon pods rotating around the cockpit.

The Alliance had far fewer big warships than the mighty Imperial Navy. But the Rebels had the advantage in starfighter tactics, using fighters on hit-and-fade missions against the Empire and to protect Rebel task forces and supply lines.
