A/SF 02E Extended B-Wing/E (Dagger Squadron)

While appearing almost identical to its predecessor, the B-Wing/E had a command cabin extended by 3 meters to add space for a gunnery station directly behind the pilot seat. The addition of a gunner drastically increased the kill statistics for this fighter by freeing the pilot to focus solely on flying the craft without dividing his attention between piloting and gunnery.

The B-Wing/E was faster and more durable, but sacrificed maneuverability allowed by the standard B-Wing. Increased shielding, speed, and its complement of weapons made this fighter a genuine threat to Imperial ships.

The B-Wing/E was designed at Shantipole Research Station, a Verpine facility deep in the Roche asteroid field. Rebel operatives foiled an attempt by Imperial spies to steal the design specs for the craft, and the craft was brought to production by Slayn & Korpil.

Admiral Gial Ackbar made use of a specially modified B-Wing/E as his personal military shuttle. His craft, dubbed the B-Wing/E2, was made with a wider command cabin to accommodate a single passenger seated next to the pilot seat. While traveling with Princess Leia Organa on final approach to the planet Vortex, Ackbar crashed his B-Wing/E2 into the Cathedral of Winds, destroying the structure and killing over 350 native Vors in the process. It was later discovered Ackbar's fighter had been sabotaged by his chief mechanic Terpfen, an unwilling agent of Ambassador Furgan of Carida.

Dagger Squadron
The B-Wing/E is in the colors of Dagger Squadron, Dagger Squadron was a starfighter squadron that served with the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. The first unit to be equipped with the then-experimental B-Wing starfighters, they were activated and sent into combat by Admiral Gial Ackbar in a last-ditch effort to save a unit of Rebels that had become trapped behind Imperial lines.

In the story "Small Victories" from the Star Wars: Rebellion comic series, Rebel Alliance B-Wing starfighters take on an Imperial fleet while trying to rescue Luke, Leia and the crew of the Rebel One from an Imperial refueling station. Rebel officer Lieutenant Pollard leads the fledgling Dagger Squadron on their very first mission that's full of daring and danger. B-Wings pack a powerful punch in battle; these heavy assault fighters/bombers are amred with cannons and torpedoes, and a rotating cockpit enables pilots to execute advanced attack maneuvers.

Incom Corporation T-65T X-Wing "Tandem X" Heavy Assault Starfighter

Developed shortly after the BATTLE OF YAVIN, the unusual "TANDEM-X" was intended as a replacement for the aging, but venerable, Y-WING STARFIGHTER. Based off the X-WING variants in use at the time, the T-65T was designed almost explicitly for use as an assault fighter and close-support craft.

At 90 MGLT the T-65T is faster than the earlier T-65B, although is easily outpaced by newer X-WING. The ship's increased mass reduces her manoeuvrability, although she's still a more than adequate dogfighter. However, her most impressive feature is firepower. The TANDEM-X carries a load of twenty HEAVY PROTON TORPEDOES, more punch than virtually any other starfighter in use.

Despite impressive combat performance, lack of money and resources and a shortage of personnel to provide a required bombardier/navigator, limited the numbers of these fighters produced in favour of the far more versatile standard X-WING models. Following the BATTLE OF HOTH, most T-65Ts with frontline ALLIANCE squadrons were replaced with the more rugged B-WING HEAVY ASSAULT STARFIGHTER.

Quote by Saxman

The ship was modeled mostly out of boredom and after flipping through Crimson Empire II. I found the design quite interesting and thought it would make for a great OPT. So far the ship hasn't appeared elsewhere officially, and I'm not entirely sure on the stats of the fighter, as the only ones I could find came from a fan site so I can't vouch for their officiality.

Note : Due to some issues with the stats the Tandem-X replaces the Missile Boat in order to work properly, (be sure to backup you Missile Boat stats first). In missions and skirmish I recommend arming the ship with ADVANCED proton torpedoes to represent the heavier-than-standard torpedoes the ship is supposed to carry. In addition, to simulate the presence of a second crewman dedicated to aiming the fighters weaponry I would set the fighter's AI to one of the higher settings, preferably Top Ace or Super Ace.

End Quote

Note : Even though this is a Xwing, and could be placed in the Xwing slot, please note that if placed in the Xwing slot the S-Foils will not open or close due to the way this opt has been made. The only things that will rotate are the pilots heads.

All textures are based off the Crimson Empire II picture as seen to the left, the size difference is due to the T-65 A2 X-wing being 12.5m and the T-65T X-wing Tandem X 15.1m in length.

Incom Corporation T-65 X-Wing Fighter Rogue Edition v2

New Features : This new version of the Rogue Xwing, incorporates FG textures from both the old Rogue and Pulsar X-Wings, I decided to remove the Pulsar X-Wing as I wasn't pleased with some of the FG colours, so now you have

RED= Rogue Squadron
GOLD = Wraith Squadron
BLUE = Red Squadron
GREEN = Freedom Squadron

The Rebel Alliance's X-wing starfighter was one of the most advanced fighters of its day when Luke Skywalker flew it into battle against the first Death Star. Many fighters have come along which are faster and more heavily armed, but the X-wing has been assured its place in history because of its role in that stunning Alliance victory.

Yet it's a miracle that the Alliance has the fighter at all. The T-65 X-wing was the last starfighter design produced by Incom Corporation before its seizure by the Empire. When the X-wing was in its final design stages, ISB (Imperial Security Bureau) agents began to suspect that members of Incom's design staff might have sympathies for the Rebel Alliance. A Rebel Commando team helped Incom's senior design staff defect to the Alliance; the designers took with them all the plans and prototypes of the X-Wing.

Incom Corporation T-65 X-Wing Fighter Krayt Dragon Edition v2

New Features: For the new Krayt Dragon X-Wing I used the 25th Anniversary X-Wing, as you can see the new version comes with flightgroup colours, the older version only had one, the Astromech droid also has had a small makeover instead of a silver dome with Blue, Red, Gold and Green trim, I have made the new version with Blue, Red, Gold and Green dome with a silver trim. By now you will know that it includes a Lod and all the Software vectors have been zeroed.

TH-96-B K-Wing Multipurpose Assault Bomber v2

New Features: First off don't expect a new craft its not. All software vectors have been zeroed making the textures sharper and a LOD model has been added to the base. Replaced the pilots heads with newer versions and added glass on the canopy. Oh yeah Abolisher sent me a version of the cockpit with some different textures, so this replaces the old version.

Multi-configurable bomber designed to be more versatile and have a higher sortie rate than the powerful yet erratic B-Wing heavy assault fighter.

In her "standard" form, she is capable of outrunning and out turning most if not all heavy fighters. The addition of the SLAM in her heavy ordinance variants (which tend to be slower and FAR le manoeuvrable) allow her to quickly swoop in, drop her bombs and swoop out, she also carries the Aegis shield system that helped put the E-Wing on the map, the K-Wing is capable of absorbing a tremendous amount of damage and keep her hull in ordinance safe.

FreiTek E-Wing

New Features: First off don't expect a new craft its not. All software vectors have been zeroed making the textures sharper and a LOD model has been added to the base. Replaced the pilots head with newer versions and added glass on the canopy. Replaced the pirate flightgroup with green. Oh yeah Abolisher sent me a version of the cockpit with some different textures, so this replaces the old version.

The FreiTek E-wing starfighter was introduced during Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign against the New Republic. A year later, when the revived Emperor made his bid for power, the ship had become a key element of the New Republic's starfighter forces.

The former Incom Corporation designers who created the fabulously successful X-wing starfighter designed the E-wing. The E-wing gave their new company, FreiTek, a design that ranked with the best fighters any company was producing.
