"The Incom T-65 X-wing is the fighter that killed the Death Star. An almost perfect balance of speed, maneuverability, and defensive shielding make it the fighter of choice for Rogue Squadron."
General Carlist Rieekan[src]

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 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. However, at least one X-wing was stolen by a stormtrooper.[3]


As of 130 ABY, the following types of X-wings existed:

T-65 series[]

XJ series[]

Other variants[]

Behind the scenes[]

The X-wing fighters were originally colored blue, but were changed to red and white because the blue color blended in with the blue-screen during filming. In the novelization of A New Hope, the X-wing squadron is called Blue Wing, and Luke Skywalker's callsign was Blue Four.

In the 1981 Japanese arcade game Bosconian (similar to Asteroids), the player uses a sort of X-wing (usually identified as a Star Destroyer) to destroy enemy missiles and bases.
