This pocket manual is an introduction to the T-65 X-wing, the Alliance's most advanced starfighter. Inside you'll find out all about the craft that Luke Skywalker used to destroy the Death Star—its origins and design, flight-handling and weapons systems, and unique history in battle.

Inside are three pop-up tactical diagrams of the X-wing in action—including an amazing three-dimensional fold-out of the craft in flight—and more than 20 photographic stills from the Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition movies.
