The Fighter Wing is an energy type wing. It serves as the base counterpart of the Fighter squadron for carriers. It is the only wing available for research. In combat, they are similar to Fighter squadrons, dull yellow colored, high speed strikecraft firing energy based weapons at their targets, leaving behind a white/yellow engine trail. The only different in appearance is that the Fighter wing has a stronger yellow aura surrounding them.
Functionally, Fighter wings are very similar to Fighter squadrons. They automatically launch when an enemy target enters their scramble range. After they reach their enemy target, they fire continuously until they are destroyed or run out of ordnance. They can be targeted by any regular weapon and destroyed, after being destroyed, they retreat and relaunch again after a brief period.
Unlike Fighter squadrons, Fighter wings launched from fleet bays do not concentrate on a single target if multiple targets enter their scramble range simultaneously.
Strategy and SetupEdit
Fighter Wings are fast, and have a moderate amount of firepower. Their speed makes them easy to mass deploy in waves, meaning they are amazing anti-blitz wings. In comparison to base weapons, they have a high amount of range. Many players attacking a base tends to attack from a direction that allows them to attack the bridge while avoiding the fleet bay in general regardless of which squadron wing is equipped. Being the highest speed strikecraft, they recover more quickly from being destroyed and close in on their targets faster than other squadrons
The Fighter wing has short range compared to other wings, at only 7500 metres, making less capable warding of attacks from destroyers and carriers. Fighter wings have relatively low amount of armor and are easily destroyed. Fighter wings do not have a minimal range arc and can certainly assist in destroying enemy blitz attacks.
- The Fighter wing is the only rebel designed squadron wing.
