Slayn & Korpil B-Wing Starfighter

Designed by Admiral Ackbar, the B-Wing Starfighter is a mobile weapons platform designed to provide heavy assault support to the Rebel fleet. Possessing a unique design that includes folding S-foils and a cockpit that rotates within it's housing in the starfighter's superstructure, the B-Wing is a difficult craft to master. Heavily armed with a variety of weapons, the B-Wing can deliver a punishing blow to slower targets (Particularly Capital Ships), though it lacks the maneuverability of other contemporary Starfighters, such as the X-Wing or the A-Wing.

Capabilities Edit

Capital Ships often find the B-Wing Starfighter to be an extremely dangerous opponent. Particularly fearsome are the Proton Torpedoes, which can be brought to bear against a Starship with devastating results. In fact, a squadron of B-Wing Starfighters was responsible for destroying an Imperial Star Destroyer at the Battle of Endor, a feat that no other fighter type could claim at the battle.

Despite it's durability and exceptional armament, the B-Wing Starfighter is still slow, sluggish, and difficult to operate. As a result, most B-Wing attack groups usually have an escort of faster and more maneuverable Starfighters, protecting the B-Wing until it can slip past the first line of enemy defenses and strike at a vulnerable target. Additionally, a character who is not Trained in the Pilot Skill takes a -2 penalty on Initiative and Pilot checks while Piloting a B-Wing Starfighter.

B-Wings also feature exceptionally modular weapon systems, allowing them to be modified as per the needs of the mission. When swapping out one of the B-Wing's Weapon Systems for another Weapon System, reduce the time taken to make the Starship Modification by half.
