The Incom T-65 X-wing fighter is the Alliance's primary space superiority platform. Originally planned for the Imperial starfleet as a replacement for the venerable Z-95 Headhunter, this fighter was delivered to the Rebellion near the start of the Galactic Civil War when the entire design team defected, bringing the prototype fighters along with them.
The first dedicated space superiority craft developed for the New Republic military, FreiTek's E-wing is a balanced and powerful fighter. Introduced several years after the Battle of Endor, the E-wing experienced more than its share of teething problems, as the initial design was built around the R7 astromech droid, an advanced custom-built unit which brought a host of its own glitches along with it. As a result, many squadrons were hesitant to adopt, and the E-wing never completely replaced Incom's often-upgraded T-65 X-wing in the New Republic fleet.
The Incom/Subpro Z-95 Headhunter is one of the most enduring starfighter designs of the last fifty years. First introduced over a decade before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, the Headhunter proved itself to be one of the most adaptable fighters serving the Republic in that conflict, outlasting the later Incom/Subpro ARC-170 both in military and civilian use. When it was finally phased out of the Imperial fleet in favor of the TIE Starfighter family, thousands of these ships flooded the market and could be seen in roles ranging from system defense to hotrod racing.
