“You know impossible is what Rogue Squadron does best of all.”
    –Corran Horn

The E-wing from the E-Wing Expansion Pack for X-Wing excels at a number of things that are impossible for other starfighters.


A 360-degree view of the E-wing.

Of course, these are only a few examples of the different ways the E-wing may carve out its own, unique niche within the fast-paced space battles of X-Wing !

Built to Adapt

Developed by FreiTek Inc. to combine the best elements of both the X-wing and A-wing, the E-wing easily stands among the Rebellion’s fastest, toughest, nimblest, and most versatile starfighters.

In X-Wing , the E-wing is one of the Rebel Alliance’s most customizable and adaptable starfighters. It can equip astromech, torpedo, and system upgrades, and it can make excellent use of several different modifications. This means that you can outfit your E-wing to perform almost any role. It also means that, as with the TIE defender, you could easily outfit your E-wing with so many upgrades that it becomes a ship that soaks up too many of your available squad points for too little value.

For example, Corran Horn is a great pilot. Still, if he were to splurge on his E-wing, adding Flechette Torpedoes , R7-T1, Outmaneuver, Advanced Sensors, and a Shield Upgrade modification (from the Millennium Falcon Expansion pack), you’d gain a pilot capable of darting through enemy starfighters and closing in for the kill, but he’d also cost you fifty squad points, fully half of your squad.

As with any ship in X-Wing , the key to flying the E-wing is to understand how it will function within your squad.

Take the Helm

Few starfighters invite as much creative squad-building exploration as the E-wing; the options are almost endless.
