A-Wing is the generalized
name of the Dodonna/Blissex RZ-1 Starfighter. It is a flat, one-man,
wedged-shaped snub fighter built for the Alliance after the lost
of the Hoth base and prior to the Battle of Endor. The A-Wing was
designed, as it's name implies, by Jan Dodonna and Walex Blissex.
The A-Wing was for the longest while perhaps the fastest fighter
in the galaxy, maybe even faster than the TIE Intercepor. For this
reason, it struck fear in the hearts of Imperial pilots. Because
the Alliance was short on funds, most A-Wings were custom-built
in private shops. The ship Tycho Celchu flew at the Battle of Endor
had its cockpit inlaid with Fijisi wood. It is 9.6 meters in length,
and was designed for interception and long-range reconnaissance.
A unique feature of the A-wing is the short hydro-servo bearing
installed in each wingtip, allowing the pilot to tilt the laser
cannons up to 60 degrees up or down. Its top sublight speed is 120
MGLT, and can maneuver at 1,300 kilometers per hour in an atmosphere.
It has limited navcomp capabilities, being able to calculate only
2 jumps before requiring recalibration. It boasts the following
shipboard systems: MPS Bpr-99 Power Core and Fusion Reactor, Twin
Novaldex J-77 Event Horizon Engines, Torplex Rq9.Z Advanced Avionics
