Characteristics

This version of the venerable starfighter added a third proton torpedo launcher, increasing the number of carried torpedoes to nine, as well as improvements to the targeting systems, shields, avionics, and laser cannons. It could also use the R7-series astromech droid. Compared to the earlier series of X-wing starfighters, the XJ was a great improvement.

History

Shortly before the invasion of the Yuuzhan Vong, the New Republic deployed the first of the XJ-series X-wing. Originally, it was issued to elite squadrons aboard Star Destroyers and the New Jedi Order, which resulted in the craft being one of the first to face the deadly coralskippers.

In 27 ABY, the XJ3 X-wing was introduced. Among the improvements it introduced was a mechanism to bring the shields down, then back up to keep them from being overloaded by dovin basals, a launcher (on Jedi craft) for their shadow bombs, and stutter-fire lasers that helped to get past the dovin basal shields of the Yuuzhan Vong ships. It was deployed primarily to Admiral Traest Kre'fey's ships and to the Jedi, who used them quite effectively.

By 35 ABY, the XJ5, also called the ChaseX, was introduced. It featured improvements to the weapons and shielding, and was the Galactic Alliance's primary space superiority fighter.

By the time of the Killik/Chiss conflict, the XJ3 X-wing, along with the StealthX, was the primary fighters used by the New Jedi Order.
