The RZ-1 A-wing interceptor, more commonly referred to as simply the A-wing, is an interceptor for the New Republic in Star Wars: Squadrons.

Description[edit | edit source]

"By far the fastest and most agile starfighter in the New Republic's lineup, the A-wing interceptor is built for dogfighting. While it is handy at taking out turrets on capital ships to clear the way for the heavy-hitters, the A-wing is better suited for forging ahead and tearing through enemy starfighters. Its weak hull and shields mean that it can't endure much damage, but its speed and maneuverability make it a difficult target to hit and allow it to fly circles around its opponents."

Overview[edit | edit source]

Main article: Interceptor

The A-wing is the smallest and fastest ship in the New Republic's lineup, specializing in chasing down enemy starfighters. The A-wing has the second-lowest total health of any starfighter in Squadrons at 1,000, second only to the TIE Interceptor with 775. It makes up for this by being extremely quick, with extremely high max speed, acceleration, and maneuverability, and having a very small frame. The A-wing deals high damage to enemy starfighters, but can't go up against Capital Ships due to its low health.
