Visual Guide Update - TAC Y-Wing Fighter

Posted by Chuck | November 28, 2007 at 10:31 PM ET |

     Y-wing starfighters are powerful vessels in the Rebel Alliance fleet, with ample firepower that includes laser cannons and proton torpedos.

During the Battle of Yavin, Y-wing fighters fend off Imperial fighters to clear a path for the Rebels to reach the Death Star's vulnerable exhaust port.

Visual Guide Update - TAC TIE Fighter

Posted by Chuck | November 19, 2007 at 06:45 PM ET |

     The TIE Fighter is the standard vessel of the Imperial fleet and is equipped with twin ion engines, microparticle accelerators, and hexagonal solar panels that provide impressive speed and maneuverability. However, they have no shielding or secondary systems to accommodate the large power generators, leaving their pilots with little in the way of auxiliary support during combat.
