X-wing starfighters were a type of starfighter marked by their distinctive S-foils that resembled an 'X' in attack formation.They are heavily armed with each wing containing a laser cannon. X wings are also equipped with proton torpedoes. X wings were designed for dogfighting and long period missions. During the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance used T-65B X-wing starfighters and T-65C-A2 X-wings in many battles, including the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Endor.
Approximately thirty years later, a different and upgraded variation of X-wing, the T-70 were used by the Resistance, whereas a more advanced model, the T-85, was used by the New Republic Starfleet.
