The T-65BR X-wing reconnaissance starfighter, commonly called the Recon-X or Snoopscoot, was a variant of the Incom T-65 X-wing starfighter modified for reconnaissance missions.

CharacteristicsEdit

A vast improvement over the aged and slow Longprobe Y-wings, the T-65BR featured an advanced, high-gain, long-range sensor package with high-speed hypertransceivers in place of the standard X-wing's proton torpedo launchers. The sensor packages were mounted on probes that were launched from the craft and tethered to it by cables.

The on-board R2-R-series astromech droid coordinated the sensors to provide maximum efficiency, a requirement when jumping into potentially dangerous zones. It was also equipped with a HoloNet communicator that enabled it to relay its findings instantaneously to allied command centers.

T-65BR used updated engines and etheric rudder prototypes to eliminate the need for thrusters. In the event that a T-65BR was captured, the pilot was armed with a deadman baradium charge that would destroy the vessel and its recorded data if the pilot was killed.

A T-65BR lacked weaponry other than its laser cannons, as the space and energy was used for its sensor package. Some even had the laser cannons removed as the energy output of the cannons interfered with the advanced sensors.

Operational historyEdit

Xarcce Huwla flew Rogue Squadron's T-65BR during the Galactic Civil War. Later, Nrin Vakil flew a T-65R with Rogue Squadron during the search for the Pulsar Station. During the Black Fleet Crisis, Lieutenant Rone Taggar flew the T-65BR Jennie Lee on a deep-penetration reconnaissance operation in the Koornacht Cluster and T-65BR escort squadron Bravo Flight was assigned to escort Commodore Han Solo's shuttle, Tampion.
