"This is a TX-65 primary trainer. The X-wing may no longer be on the Fleet's frontlines, but every pilot in the Fleet took his first one hundred hours in one of these, and every new pilot probably will in the years to come."
It was a direct variation of the far more common T-65 X-wing starfighter, and was visually similar to its predecessor. However, it had a wider fuselage, large enough to sport a cockpit twice as large as the original T-65. This was for two pilots: a primary pilot and a mentor pilot, who observed the trainee, taught him, and observed the progress of the starfighter to attempt to prevent any catastrophic accidents.
