Fighter a-wing 01

Developed over a considerable period of time, the Dodonna-Blissex RZ-1 A-Wing claims the title of the fastest standard-issue combat starfighter in the galaxy. With its low mass driven by a pair of high-yield Novaldex J-77 engines, the wedge-shaped craft can achieve tremendous velocities and is capable of extraordinarily precise manuvers. The engine itself has been christened the Event Horizon, and their production is a guarded facet. All of its internal componentry is implemented in a MinMaxOpt approach — the minimum amount of size with the maximum amount of output to optimize performance. For example, traditional Alliance starfighters utilize droids for navigation and repair. The A-Wing is forced to employ a complex navigation computer that has not been fully battle-tested and has no known reliability factor. In addition, there is no backup or redundancy; if a system breaks, there is little chance of having the means to repair it.

Coupled with its speed, a premier sensor package makes the A-Wing a valued craft. Fabritech initially upgraded their 5-series sensor units, but chose to develop the entirely new 7-series of packages. These packages sport better range, accuracy, and response than their previous siblings, in addition to being more compact and compatible with the high speeds that the A-Wing attains. However, since they are quite new, they are prone to glitches and failures, and unit replacement is far easier than unit repair. Republic techs have lately cut access panels into the hulls of A-Wings that facilitate swift removal and replacement of the entire ANs-7e sensor unit.

The fighter is most often employed as a reconnaissance interceptor. Its high speed allows it to drop into a zone, take scans, and elude pursuit, while the same speed characteristics enable it to intercept any threat rapidly. More and more, the A-Wing is placed into the "Hit and Fade" tactical role that the New Republic relies so heavily upon.
