#AtoZChallenge: X-Wing Fighter


X-Wing Fighter

From the StarWars.com databank


The X-wing is a versatile Rebel Alliance starfighter that balances speed with firepower. Armed with four laser cannons and two proton torpedo launchers, the X-wing can take on anything the Empire throws at it. Nimble engines give the X-wing an edge during dogfights, and it can make long-range jumps with its hyperdrive and its astromech droid co-pilot.

My husband believes that the X-Wing Fighter was as ‘sci fi’ looking as the TIE Fighter.  However, I have to disagree because of these three X-Wing Fighter Features:

1) This small craft is hyperspace capable

2) R2-D2 or some other R2 unit is the co-pilot


3) The wings can go into ‘attack’ position, which helps give these fighters their name.


For me, I am very happy to see that Star Wars The Force Awakens includes new X-Wing Fighters.
I am also happy that the new stand alone film Rogue One may include a female pilot.  Hopefully, she will be flying an X-Wing Fighter!

So what do you think of X-Wing Fighters?  

Are you excited to see them appear in Star Wars The Force Awakens and possibly in the stand alone film Rogue One?
