During the Rebellion to Restore the Republic, the BTL Y-wing starfighter, built by Koensayr Manufacturing, was a mainstay of the Alliance Starfighter Corps. It was often used as an assault bomber to attack enemy capital ships directly in conjunction with the later B-wing starfighters.
Affectionately known as a “wishbone” to Rebel Alliance and New Republic pilots, the Y-wingstarfighter was deployed as a fighter-bomber, designed to fight its way to its objective, deliver its payload of high explosives, and fight its way out again.
Y-wing pilots can be recognized by their grey flightsuits, distinctive flak vests and a unique flight helmet offering superior head protection.
