The Interceptor wing launches from your fleet bay, loaded with projectile weapons.
The Interceptor Wing is an event, projectile weapons equipped, type of squadron wing. It was first available in the event Revenge. It serves as the ship counterpart of the Interceptor squadron for carriers. They are common amongst players, but less common than Bomber wings, they have a blue/white aura glow about the squadrons itself, differentiating them from carrier launched Interceptor squadrons.

The Interceptor Wing has a very high range, at 9,500 metres, it has equal range with Kinetic driver turrets. This makes them more so effective against fleets of destroyers. Fleet bays directly adjacent to a bridge equipped with Interceptor wings can engage destroyers if they are targeting the bridge no matter which angle they engage the bridge from.
They have similar attributes to their ship variants, with the same firepower, armor, flight time, speed and armor. Being equipped with projectile weapon type, they can usually drain Shockwave shields or Spectral shields more quickly.
The Interceptor wing's lack of firepower and its insufficient health make it unsuitable for repelling against a blitz attack. On top of this, most destroyer fleets use Deflector, Repulsor or Metaphase shields, meaning even less damage is dealt and that its unique damage type is rather meaningless, compared to Bomber wing.
