RZ-1 A-Wing-class Interceptor
A-wing's were high-speed fighters used by the Rebel Alliance.

Development

The A-Wing was designed by Walex Blissex, and based on the shape of his hand.  It was named A-Wing because Blissex didn't know that many letters, and X and Y were already taken.  The ship was designed for speed, but did also have some weaponry.  They were outfitted with standard lasers, concussion missiles, and hyperdrive.

Effectiveness

While the primary function of A-Wings was to engage with TIE Interceptors and other small craft, their small size and speed allowed them to engage much larger crafts.  In a one-on-one fight, and A-wing could take down a Star Destroyer- though this was incredibly risky to the pilot.  During the Battle of Endor, Arvel Crynyd flew his A-Wing directly into the bridge of the Super Star Destroyer Executor, causing it to crash into the Death Star.
