Customized Resistance B-Wing
Aala Krien was a skillful B-Wing pilot during the rebellion against the galactic empire. When she joined the resistance, her renown allowed her to be given the head of a T-70 X-wing squadron, acoomplishing hit and run missions. While the X-wing was quite efficient, she soon missed the firepower of her old B-wing and the control provided by its ion cannons. She asked the resistance engineers to remodel a B-wing into a starfighter capable of fullfilling her missions. They made her custom B-wing lighter, faster with upgraded engines and thrusters, and easier to control with the ability to embark an astromech droid.

The build is surprisingly sturdy and can be swooshed with one hand holding the main wing!
