STANDARD FEATURES

ADVANCED SYSTEMS

STRENGTHS

  • Capital Ship Hunter: The BE2 is a single role starfighter, to launch in packs and attack capital ships with its' impressive weapon build out. The BE2 will flank slower, less maneuverable capital ships, exploiting their weaknesses and cripple them with well placed shots from their light ion cannons.   

  • Ease of Production: Designed to be above all things very easy and cost effective to produce, the BE2 is seen in large numbers throughout the outer rim. Even system with relatively modest income sources could potentially field a few B wings.

WEAKNESSES

  • Easy Prey: While the BE2 has good straight line speed, it has no rear guns and very sluggish maneuverability making it easy prey for even modest stunt fighters and interceptors.

DESCRIPTION

 

Officially marketed as a system patrol vessel intended to be sold to system defense forces and other paramilitary groups, the BE2 is a thinly veiled attempt to disguise military hardware as civilian surplus. In fact the minds behind the BE were deeply connected with the exiled Galactic Alliance government now in hiding deep in the Outer Rim Territories. As what remains of the Alliance Defense Fleet withered away under attrition, the BE2 was commissioned to serve as a replacement craft for a government which could no longer afford the multiple capital ships it once did but instead have turned to hit and run tactics with wolf packs of assault fighters to counter small to medium sized capital ships.

 

Other differences from more traditional and advanced B-wings are the rotating cockpit has been moved to the center line, while sacrificing visibility this improved ease of construction and dependability. An astromech port installed to replace expensive nav computers.  Cheap to build, cheap to maintain, easily replaceable for a resistance outfit on a budget, it is hoped it can be fielded in numbers to fill the gaps left by the lack of small capital craft.
