Doesn't this fighter have proton bombs( since the main Y-wing page has them) 22:28, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I just checked on the Raid on the Suprosa and there it says that the BTL-S3 variant was used (which would make sense, considering 12 bothans died and only 6 Y wings were lost). So how comes, that this article says that A4's were used? -- 22:52, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

The Characteristics section states that the A4 replaced the S3, but the History section states that the S3 replaced the A4 (with some units still using the A4). These can't both be the case surely?-- 04:27, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

Armament Edit

From what source does the Y-Wing have 10 torpedoes AND 20 bombs per launcher? This would make them armed to a similar level as the Missile Boat. Lenzar 23:11, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

This article says that Gray Squadron flew A4s during the Battle of Endor, however S3s are used, removing that reference.


The speed should be higher. Sources higher up the canonicity hierarchy state that this is a faster vessel. Rogue Squadron is also dubious at best for either logical or canonical information. You might as well take stats from Battlefront II.

Also ILM charts show the Y-Wings used at Endor were as fast/agile as X-Wings, so they may well have been A4s. As always, the films supersede all other canon.
