Description: With the A-Wing fighter was a superb starfighter during the years of the Rebellion, due to its incredible speed and manueverability, however once the New Republic was formed instead of convoy raiding the A-Wing was pressed into service as an escort fighter, a role it was ill suited to, but against the remnants of the Empire this made little difference since it still totally outclassed the Tie Fighters that it was put up against. But when the Republic was faced with threat of the Sith/Empire alliance, and the upgraded fighters they were fielding, the Republic began looking for a new fighter to replace the A-Wing, this is the the direct replacement for the A Wing, which lost out to the T Wing fighter. Howeevr this vessel which uses many of the same parts as the original A Wing has been purchased in smaller numbers. With its upgraded sublight engines, Hyperdrive, and weapons this is a fine fighter, however is not that much more flexible than the original A Wing.
