The Incom T-65XJ X-wing starfighter was a starfighter used by the New Republic and the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances.

Contents

Characteristics

The XJ series boasted increased shield capacity, better maneuverability, and a higher sublight acceleration. The starfighter's weapons carried an increased charge and better targeting computers, making the craft a formidable enemy of the foes of the New Republic. Additionally, a third proton torpedo launcher was added to up the fighter's payload to 9 torpedoes total.

History

The XJ model of Incom's incredibly successful X-wing series was one of the more recent versions of the venerable starfighter. When the war against the Yuuzhan Vong started, these models were rarely seen outside of the New Jedi Order and Star Destroyer squadrons.

XJ3 X-wing

Main article: XJ3 X-wing starfighter

The XJ3 X-wing had come into service by the time of the Fall of Coruscant in 27 ABY. These supplemented the more advanced and more expensive Series III E-wing escort starfighter.

StealthX

Main article: StealthX

The "StealthX" was in use in 35 ABY during the Killik/Chiss conflict. The Jedi tended to use the StealthX or earlier XJ3. The StealthX was a covert strike craft, equipped with features that reduced its visibility both visually and to sensors, though it could be located if it was silhouetted or launching proton torpedoes. The StealthX was described as being smaller than the XJ5 model. The StealthX was also described as being a derivative of the XJ3, and was likely classified as the XJ4.

XJ5 X-wing "ChaseX"

Main article: XJ5 X-wing starfighter
