The '''B-Wing Starfighter''' is a prominent [[Rebel Alliance | Rebel]] [[starfighter]] craft introduced before the [[Battle of Endor]].
  
Designed by [[Ackbar|Admiral Ackbar]] and the Slayn & Korpil corporation, it is one of the most heavily armed fighters in the Rebel fleet. Fitted with [[Ion Cannon | ion cannons]], [[laser]]s, [[blaster | blasters]] and a complement of [[proton torpedo | proton torpedoes]], it is capable of engaging small [[capital ship]]s. Lacking in straight-line [[speed]] and suffering from reduced agility due to it's unique rotating [[hull]], its effectiveness in dogfights proved less than expected. Due to this and the difficulty of mastering the craft, it did not succeed in replacing the [[Y-wing]] as the Rebel Alliance's heavy fighter of choice.
