The BTL-S3 Y-Wing Starfighter, or simply Y-Wing or "wishbone," is a New Republic bomber available Eras 1-3, with prebuilt ones appearing in Reunification and Final Imperial Push. Its armament consists of 2 laser cannons, 2 ion cannons, and 2 proton torpedo launchers.
The Y-Wing is a design from the Clone wars, introduced as an additional bomber that sacrificed speed for durability. It was famously flown by Anakin Skywalker in his attack against the Malovelence. An inordinate amount of Y-Wings existed, even more populous then the versions of the Z-95 warheads floating around, leading to it being the primary starfighter used by the Rebel Alliance in terms of number.
Use Ingame Edit
The initial bomber of the New Republic, and it's most populous. It comes with every dedicated carrier ship and one capital ship. Though ungainly, slow, and outclassed by the B-Wing in every way except durability, it's still a competent bomber, the laser cannons being 360 degrees letting it indirectly attack and weaken enemy fighters, the ion cannons being able to weaken enemy ship shielding, and the higher grade proton torpedo launcher sizes making it much more capable of destruction than an X-Wing.
