My Top 10 Star Wars Starfighters!

With ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ rapidly approaching I’ve been thinking lots about Star Wars.

Tonight I’ve focussed on starfighters and chosen my Top 10 which you can find below.

10 ETA 2 Actis-Class Light Interceptor
10- The ETA 2 Actis-Class Light Interceptor, also known as the Jedi Starfighter. Flown by both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker
09 U Wing
09- The Incom UT-60D U-Wing Starfighter as seen during The Battle of Scarif.
08 N1 Naboo Starfighter
08- The N1 Naboo Starfighter. A young Anakin Skywalker flew one of these during the Trade Federation’s Invasion of Naboo.
07 A Wing
07- The Kuat Systems RZ-1 A-Wing interceptor. This was used by the Alliance during The Battle of Endor. The Resistance used an updated version 30 years later.
06 T70 X Wing
06- The Incom T-70 X-Wing. Used by the Resistance, and was flown by Poe Dameron and Snap Wexley during The Battle of Starkiller Base.
05 T65 X Wing
05- The Incom T-65 X-Wing. This was the main fighter used by The Alliance to Restore the Republic and took part in many battles including The Battle of Scarif and The Battle of Yavin.
04 T47 Airspeeder
04- The Incom T-47 Airspeeder, which was heavily modified by Alliance engineers to work in the harsh, icy conditions of the planet Hoth. They became known as Snowspeeders for that reason.
03 Tantive IV
03-The Corellian Engineering Corp CR90 Corvette. They are also known as a Blockade Runners. Prior to The Battle of Yavin, House Organa of Alderaan owned a CR90 which was known as the Tantive IV.
02 Millenium Falcon
02- The Millennium Falcon. The Falcon is a Corellian YT1300f light freighter that was originally designated YT-1300 492727ZED. After being owned by the Galactic Republic, it then fell into the ownership of Lando Calrissian Lando eventually lost it to Han Solo in a game of Sabacc. This was the ship that made the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs (actually it was nearer 13 but Han rounded down).
01 Y Wing
01- The Koensayr Manufacturing Corp BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter. One of the most versatile starships, it could be modified for different roles including assault fighter, bomber and fighter bomber. It could also be modified to have 2 seats. Y-Wings normally have armoured plating covering all of the engine, however, Rebel engineers removed the plating to make the craft lighter and more manoeuvrable.
