STAR WARS: ECLIPSE OF THE EMPIRE
BTL Y-Wing Starfighter
Affectionately known as a “wishbone” to Rebel Alliance pilots, the Y-wing starfighter is deployed as a fighter-bomber, designed to fight its way to its objective, deliver its payload of high explosives, and fight its way out again. Its weaponry included two laser cannons, two ion cannons, and two proton torpedo launchers. An astromech droid, such as an R2 unit, could be plugged into a socket behind the cockpit to act as a co-pilot and manage the ship’s various systems.
