Named for its unique double-layered wings, or S-foils, this ship is one of the most versatile weapons in the Rebel Alliance. In combat, its S-foils are opened to give it greater maneuverability. These S-foils are closed during normal flight, so it can fly faster while still pulling off advanced aerobatics such as rolls. The X-wing is formidably armed, with high-powered blaster cannons in its wing tips, plus proton torpedo launchers on its main space-frame. With its reinforced titanium alloy hull and high-powered shield generators, the X-wing can take a barrage of minor hits and still keep flying.
