X-wing - Star Wars

X-wing from Star Wars.

The X-Wing is the main fighter craft of the Rebellion as they take on the Empire. Their greatest hour comes at the battle of Yavin IV where they are intrumental in taking out the enemy T.I.E. Fighters.

Luke Skywalker is able to fly one allegedly having never flown one before. Luke Skywalker is uses an X-Wing as a personal vehicle he uses to travel to the swamp planet of Dagobah to receive Jedi training from the 900 year old Yoda. The Death Star is destroyed by a single bolt from an X-wing down a shaft by Luke Skywalker.

Before the Empire became as it was, The Old Republic had craft that were similar in design to the X-Wing. Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi flew them into battle at Coruscant to rescue Vice Chancellor Palpatine.

In addition to the pilot, there is a section for a Astromech droid to assit. The Astromech sits in a slot at the back of the X-Wing. Both Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker used the same Astromech droid, R2-D2 when they fought their most important battles.
