EQUIPMENT

DESCRIPTION
The T-70 X-Wing starfighter was the successor to the T-65B X-Wing starfighter, manufactured by Incom-FreiTek for use by the New Republic Defense Fleet.

Faster, more expensive and more complex than the former T-65B, the T-70 featured advanced weaponry and proved more versatile than its predecessor, and was essential in both dogfights and capital-ship scale combat operations. Modified S-foils designs allowed a greater range of fire, while four medium laser cannons offered single, dual, and quad firing modes. A built-in dual warhead launcher with quick-change magazines permitted the utilization of various alternate weapon load-outs, including proton torpedoes. The craft had shields, as well as a defensive repeating blaster turret, which could fully rotate and could be controlled either by the ship's astromech droid or the pilot. The ship was equipped with an excellent class 1 hyperdrive, however, like almost all X-Wing series starfighters, the ship lacked a navicomputer and relied on the onboard astromech to provide jump calculations.

Ultimately, New Republic demilitarization efforts and corruption would see production of the vessel shifted to several well-connected manufacturers. The T-70 would eventually be replaced in New Republic service by the newer T-85 X-Wing. Following its retirement from service in the New Republic Starfleet, the T-70s in inventory were mostly sold off; notably, a large number of them wound up with the Resistance, and became their frontline starfighter during the fight against the First Order approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor.

LEGALITY
Restricted. T-70 X-Wings are starfighters, and are subject to extra licensing requirements and increased scrutiny by authorities.

INTENT
To create a standard, mid-range starfighter.
