T-65BR X-Wing Starfighter

Incom's T-65BR, commonly referred to as the Recon X-Wing, was originally developed as an attempt to replace the venerable Y-Wing "Longprobe". Despite these initial intentions, "Longprobes" were never completely put out to pasture by the introduction of the T-65BR. Although it is widely accepted that the T-65BR is an excellent reconnaissance craft, it is by no means inexpensive to produce. This situation has led to the New Republic's doctrine of "Improve and Replace," whereby older X-Wings that are already in service are overhauled and converted into recon craft with similar, if not identical, capabilities.

Capabilities Edit

A T-65BR with sensors active shows up like a beacon on even the weakest interstellar detection equipment. These sensors, when paired with the T-65BR's high-speed Hypertransceiver, allow the pilot to transmit sensor data to base in real time. These sensors provide a +10 Equipment bonus on Use Computer checks made to Use Sensors, but impose a -10 penalty on Stealth checks made for Starship Stealth.

The ship's pilot is paired with an Astromech Droid that can take control of the ship should the pilot require rest. Given the sensitive nature of the ship's onboard systems, it is the pilot's obligation to prevent their craft from falling into enemy hands. This is accomplished through the use of a self-destruct switch. When activated, the switch simultaneously erases all onboard computer memory, detonates a shaped charge that destroys the ship's Astromech Droid, and injects the pilot with a lethal toxin. A dead man's switch, tied to the pilot's vital signs, then detonates a large baradium charge, effectively destroying whatever remains.
