The X-wing was a prominent series of multiple starfighters produced by Incom with a characteristic "X"-shape of four wings, known as S-foils, extending out from the fuselage. These starfighters were found in the service of the Rebel Alliance, New Republic, and also the Galactic Alliance. The X-Wing was originally developed for the Galactic Empire but the entire Incom design team defected with the prototypes to the Rebel Alliance, ending the contract. Despite this, however, at least one X-wing was stolen by a Stormtrooper.
As of 130 ABY, the following types of X-wings existed:
- T-65 X-wing—the most famous example[source?]
- T-65A2 X-wing
- T-65A3 X-wing
- T-65AC4 X-wing
- T-65B X-wing
- T-65BR Recon-X
- T-65C-A2 X-wing
- T-65D-A1 X-wing
- T-65 Advanced X-wing
- TX-65 Trainer-X
- Tandem X-wing
