Star wars rogue one x wing
Rogue Squadron (Star Wars: X-Wing, #1) by Michael A. StackpoleThey are sleek, swift, and deadly. The are the X-wing fighters. And as the struggle rages across the vastness of space, the fearless men and women who pilot them risk both their lives and their machines. Their mission: to defend the Rebel Alliance against a still-powerful and battle-hardened Imperial foe in a last-ditch effort to control the stars!
Its very name strikes fear into enemy hearts. So when Rebel hero Wedge Antilles rebuilds the legendary Rogue Squadron, he seeks out only the best -- the most skilled, the most daring X-wing pilots. Through arduous training and dangerous missions, he weeds out the weak from the strong, assembling a group of hard-bitten warriors willing to fight, ready to die. Antilles knows the grim truth: that even with the best X-wing jockeys in the galaxy, many will not survive their near-suicidal missions. But when Rogue Squadron is ordered to assist in the assault on the heavily fortified Imperial stronghold of Black Moon, even the bravest must wonder if any at all will survive. . . .
Today, EA jumps into the future of gaming with a new way to explore the Star Wars universe. My role is to guide the game to be a great, fun and authentic experience and to support the team in any way I can. For the past few months, my office chair has been an X-wing cockpit. At E3, we saw the Star Destroyer looming overhead. Can you tell us more about how this plays in the Mission?

X-wing starfighters were a type of starfighter marked by their distinctive S-foils that resembled the High Galactic script's character "X" in attack formation. They were heavily armed with four laser cannons on the S-foils and proton torpedo launchers in the fuselage. X-wings were designed for dogfighting and long missions. Approximately thirty years later, a different and upgraded variation of X-wing, the T , was used by the Resistance , whereas a more advanced model, the T , was used by the New Republic Defense Fleet. Incom's engineers strove to build a well-rounded, hyperdrive -equipped snubfighter with no exploitable weakness. The new starfighter was intended to become the backbone of the Imperial Navy , but political forces led to the Galactic Empire deciding to rely on Sienar Fleet Systems ' more affordable TIE line. The Alliance to Restore the Republic then adopted the X-wing design as its own.
