Incom industries T-65c A2 Starfighter is usually just called the X-Wing. It is a fighter that has great manoeuvrability and shooting accuracy because of its two wings that split in two by activating S-foils. Each wing has its own laser cannon. It is a single pilot ship, with a socket for an R2 astromech droid that will act as a navigational computer.
The X-Wing was designed by Incom for the Empire but the Empire thought Incom
were Alliance sympathisers and stopped manufacture. The X-Wing team then defected to the Alliance, flying out with all the X-Wing plans and prototypes and then destroying all x-wing records the databases of the Empire and Incom. After that the Alliance then started to make X-Wings themselves.
