General Briefing on All Aircraft

X-Wing

With its unique double-layered wings (known as S-foils), the X-wing is one of the most recognizable ships in the Star Wars universe. A versatile and robust ship, the X-wing features a reinforced titanium alloy hull and high powered shield generators, not to mention an on-board R2 unit for repairs.Closing the S-foils allow the X-wing to move much faster, but decreases maneuverablity and it cannot fire.

Primary Weapon: 4 laser cannons
Secondary Weapon: 6 proton torpedoes

Y-Wing

Part fighter and part bomber, the Y-wing is the precursor to the X-wing. It may not be as maneuverable as the X-wing, but it makes up for this limitation by having an impressive arsenal, including proton bombs and the powerful ion cannon. Its proton bombs make it the ideal craft to use for any ground-based missions where the goal is to bomb surface targets. The Y-wing also includes an R2 unit to help repair the ships when it gets damaged.

Primary Weapon: Dual laser cannons
Secondary Weapon: 20 Proton Bombs

A-Wing

By far the fastest starfighter in the Rebel Alliance, the A-wing is quick and agile in everything it does. It features a limited nitro boost that allows it to get speed bursts when you click the R Button. The A-wing has unlimited nitro boosts, although the boost does take time to recharge. While the A-wing has an impressive arsenal, its major weakness is the fact that its shields are relatively weak and its hull is easily pierced by blaster fire.

Primary Weapon: Dual laser cannons
Secondary Weapon: Concussion Missiles

B-Wing

Built by the Rebel Alliance primarily as a vessel designed to engage Imperial captital ships, the B-wing's unique shape makes it stand out compared to the other REbel ships. While it shares the smae basic weapon setup as the X-wing, it has one important addition: double ion cannons. With powerful shields and the ability to close its S-foils to speed up, the ships major disadvantage is that its shape sometimes makes it harder to maneuver.

Primary Weapon: Three laser cannons
Secondary Weapon: 12 proton torpedoes

Airspeeder

Officially known as the Incom T-47, this ship is famous for its unique towin gcable which can be put to use to take down Imperial AT-ATs. The airspeeder is limited to relatively low altitudes and can't perform advanced maneuvers such as rolls, but it is fast and small, making it hard for enemy troops to hit with any precision. That's a good thing, because the airspeeder lacks any strong shields for protection.

Primary Weapon: Dual laser cannons
Secondary Weapon: Tow cable, when you fly near an AT-AT, press B to release your tow cable, then fly tight circles around the AT-AT until your tow cable is automatically released and the AT-AT falls. If you fly too far from the AT-AT, the tow cable gets released.

TIE Fighter

Standard Imperial TIE Fighter. These small aircraft have no shields, life support, or ejection systems. Very maneuverable, but also very weak.

Primary Weapon: Dual laser cannons
Secondary Weapon: None

Millenium Falcon

The Millenium Falcon is extremely fast, has a lot of armor, but it turns like a sleepy hutt. Its large size makes it tough to maneuver around obstacles as well.

Primary Weapon: Dual Laser Cannons
Secondary Weapon: Concussion Missiles

Naboo Starfighter

The Naboo Starfighter is a blast from the past. It goes just as fast, if not faster, than the A-wing, has armor a little weaker than the Y-wing, and maneuvers very well. Its cockpit view is also very cool.

Primary Weapon: Dual laser cannon
Secondary Weapon: Proton Torpedoes

TIE Advanced

The TIE Advanced is Darth Vader's personal TIE fighter. It is very fast and maneuverable, and has decent armor. With the homing cluster upgrade, this ship is probably the most deadly to enemy fighters.

Primary Weapon: Dual laser cannons
Secondary Weapon: Cluster Missiles
