The T-65AC4 X-wing starfighter was an updated version of the T-65 X-wing starfighter.


The T-65AC4 X-wing boasted many improvements over earlier models. It was much faster than the older T-65, with a sublight speed comparable to that of the RZ-1 A-wing interceptor. It was also capable of withstanding and causing significant damage, much more so than previous designs.[1] It was equipped with heavy laser cannons and more advanced proton torpedoes as well as an increased torpedo complement of eight compared to the six carried by older models.[2] The T-65AC4 was also easier to fly thanks to a new cockpit layout and improved flight capabilities.[1]


Incom Corporation designed the T-65AC4 in response to newer starfighters entering service, such as the E-wing escort starfighter and the A-9 Vigilance interceptor. Rather than allow the X-wing to fall into obsolescence, Incom decided to look at existing X-wing designs in order to find ways to upgrade many of the craft's systems.[2] With all of the changes made, the new design was said to have very little in common with the X-wings of the Battle of Yavin.[1] The new starfighter remained popular with some of the galaxy's best pilots even during the Yuuzhan Vong War and was still considered a dangerous craft.[2]
