The Republic introduced the E-wing during Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign to rebuild the fallen Empire. Built with cutting-edge weapons, shielding, and propulsion systems, the fighter is extremely powerful and well-rounded.
The spaceframe of the E-wing is surrounded by to aerodynamic foils which provide stability and provide increased weapons ability. The nosecone contains the starfighter's powerful sensors, while a concealed R7 astromech droid can easily be positioned midway through the craft. Directly in front of the R7 slot is the cockpit.
By far the most refined aspects of the E-wing are the shields and weapons. Three impressive laser cannons are linked together in order to form a powerful team. The fighter's life support can keep the pilot alive for at least a week.
