Gamers have piloted the T-65 X-Wing Starfighter more than any other vehicle, and that’s nothing to complain about. From Death Star trench runs to aerial dogfights against TIE fighters, the X-Wing has devastated Imperial Forces in classic games like Rogue Squadron and X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter.
The most iconic vehicle in Star Wars history has appeared in numerous video games, but mostly as an unlockable reward. The Falcon’s most notable appearance is from Rogue Squadron III.
The Ebon Hawk is the base of operations and primary means of transportation in the Knights of the Old Republic games. It was originally a smuggler ship and eventually fell into the hands of Revan, Dark Lord of the Sith.
These flying hunks of junk are the best fodder a Rebel pilot could ask for. They are the primary menace in almost every Star Wars flight game and are fun to control in the TIE Fighter PC game, despite the lack of
shielding. The Interceptor, Advance, and Defender are popular variations of the TIE’s basic design.
This ship, which belonged to the Fett family, makes a number of memorable appearances in the Battlefront and Rogue Squadron series. It’s often one of the most powerful ships in a game, unloading rapid-fire laser blasts from a heavily shielded hull.
The appearance of a Star Destroyer usually spells doom, making it one of the most feared weapons of the Empire. We’ve taken down many of these enormous vessels in video games, a feat that usually begins with the objective of destroying the dome-shaped long-range sensors.
If Imperial ground forces need to be eradicated, the Rebel Alliance almost always calls upon the Y-Wing bomber. This vehicle is often seen hugging the ground, dropping high explosives. Most games allow the Y-Wing to switch between bombing and aerial combat.
Darth Vader didn’t just own a specially designed TIE fighter, he also had his own Super Star Destroyer called the Executor. This lengthy flagship appeared in numerous games, including Rebel Strike and The Force Unleashed.
Darth Maul piloted this prototype stealth ship, which is outfitted with six solar ionized cannons, an experimental ion drive, and blood-red interior lighting. This ship is also known as the Sith Infiltrator.
Players can unlock it in Star Wars Starfighter and Battle for Naboo.
This oddly named craft belonged to Kyle Katarn, the protagonist in Star Wars: Dark Forces. He later upgraded to the Raven’s Claw, but The Moldy Crow wasn’t forgotten. It appeared in Empire at War and the Jedi Knight II.
