Game Notes:

  • The F Wing uses the same gyroscopically stabilized command pod system as the B Wing fighter, which is also vulnerable to the same problems should it malfunction. In game terms when the fighter is heavily damaged, a roll of 1-2 (used to determine which system is damaged) means the stabilization system has failed. Reduce all fire control codes by 1D (since the craft is no longer a stable firing platform Sublight speed drops from 6 to 2 (atmospheric speed goes from 330;950 kmh to 225;650kmh). These penalties are cumulative.
  • This Capital ship scale turbolaser consumes far too much power for the starfighter to supply so is charged from capacitors, this means that unless the capacitors are recharged from a Capital Scale vessel, the TurboLaser can only be fired twice in any 24 hour period.

Background: The F Wing was a prototype replacement for the B Wing fighter which performed so well during the Battle of Endor and during the years of the formation of the New Republic. The F Wing is designed with the same role as the B Wing, that of a Fighter Bomber and Capital ship interdiction fighter. It performs these duties with in almost exactly the same way as the B Wing, but has the added edge of its capital scale turbolaser which actually allow it to stand a chance of taking on capital ships.

Largely replaced by the MG-100 StarFortress SF-17 Bomber, the F-Wing still can be found used by Planetary Governments in the Outer Rim.
