T-65XJ3 X-Wing Starfighter

The T-65XJ3 was developed as an offshoot of the T-65XJ during the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion. The Starfighter's design implemented a number of technical changes that were designed to give it an edge against the bizarre technology used by The Yuuzhan Vong Empire. As such, it represents the pinnacle of Starship design, and it is a favorite of Jedi Starfighter pilots.

Capabilities Edit

Compared to the earlier T-65XJ, the XJ3 incorporated increased shield capacity, backup shield generators, more efficient fire control, and improved maneuverability. The backup shield generators allow a pilot to Recharge Shields at twice the normal rate, increasing the current Shield Rating by 10 points, up to the XJ3's normal maximum of 30.

The Starfighter's weaponry has likewise been upgraded, including wing-mounted Heavy Laser Cannons and three Proton Torpedo Launchers armed with four Proton Torpedoes apiece. Further, the Laser Cannons are "Stutter-Fire" capable, allowing them to bypass the Dovin Basal defenses used by Yuuzhan Vong Vehicles. A Yuuzhan Vong ship's Dovin Basals provide only half Shield Rating when defending against Stutter-Fire lasers.
