B-wing fighter

Heavily Armed Starfighter



Perhaps the oddest-looking starfighter in the Rebel Alliance fleet, the B-wing fighter is as powerful as it is ungainly. The ship's structure is almost entirely taken up by its primary airfoil, which houses a cylindrical cockpit on one end, an engine cluster in the center, and a heavy weapons pod at its base. Located just below the engine cluster are a pair of S-foils which can deploy to extend the firing arc of twin laser cannons. The B-wing's command pod has a unique gyroscopic control system. The pilot can orient it so that it always stays level with a pre-designated horizon line. No matter which way the B-wing may maneuver laterally, its pilot remains upright.

X-wing starfighter

X-wing fighter

The workhorse of the Rebel Alliance starfighter arsenal, the X-wing sets the standard of performance in space superiority combat. Though slower than an X-wing, the B-wing has greater firepower, hull integrity and shield strength, allowing it to risk attack runs on much larger capital ships.
