Koensayr Y-Wing Starfighter

The workhorse of The Rebel Alliance, the Koensayr Y-Wing is not as popular as other snub fighters, being neither as fast nor as maneuverable. However, it's impressive shields and weaponry more than make up for it's performance flaws.

Like the T-65B X-Wing, the Koensayr Y-Wing provides a topside port to allow an Astromech Droid to plug in and handle most of the in-flight "Dirty Work."

Built by Koensayr Manufacturing, the Y-Wing was designed to be used in the Clone Wars, Koensayr began selling the ships to anyone who had the credits to spare as the Empire lost interest in the design. Officially all such purchases were to legitimate planetary or business concerns, but Koensayr was happy to look the other way if a Hutt or Rebel managed to produce even halfway realistic documents supporting a sale.

As a result, the Y-Wing Starfighter, lovingly called the "Wishbone" by Rebel pilots, was the workhorse and backbone early for The Rebel Alliance. As the X-Wing became increasingly available to the Rebellion, Y-Wings became second-line Starfighters ued only because so many were available. Plans to decommission all Y-Wings are periodically drawn up, but some of the ships continue to serve through the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion and the conflicts that follow it.

Capabilities Edit

Although not as swift as an X-Wing or as powerful as a B-Wing, the Y-Wing is a sturdy, well-shielded craft with a powerful attack in the form of two Ion Cannons and Proton Torpedo Launchers. Ungainly for a snubfighter, the Y-Wing served as a joint fighter/bomber, able to both enter Dogfights with TIE Fighters and take out armored targets such as enemy freighters and planetary bunkers. Few ships its size mounted Ion Cannons, and the success of the Y-Wing is one reason that the B-Wing is similarly armed.
