Star Wars - X-Wing Starfighter - by J. Leslie

X-wings are fictional starfighters from the original Star Wars trilogy and the expanded universe. They are depicted as the primary interceptor and dogfighter of the Rebel Alliance and the New Republic. The craft has been merchandised as a variety of toys and models and licensed for use in games, novels and comics.
A model of Luke Skywalker's X-wing was among 250 Star Wars-related items on display at the National Air and Space Museum celebrating the franchise's twentieth anniversary. In 2007, the San Diego Tripoli Rocket Association built and launched a 23-foot-long X-wing model propelled by four rockets, which exploded seconds after launch. A life-size X-wing is suspended from a ceiling at Disneyland in California.

X-Wing é um caça estelar utilizada pelos rebeldes na Trilogia Clássica de Star Wars. Sua designação é T-65. É uma nave rápida tanto dentro como fora da atmosfera e alcança a velocidade de hiperespaço.
A nave contava com 4 asas em formato X (daí deriva-se o seu nome) com um canhão laser em cada uma. Possuía também escudos de energia e comportava um piloto e um robô, do mesmo modelo do R2-D2, que possuía a habilidade de reparar e pilotar a nave durante os voos.
