Fighter vs. Bomber
At the time when the X-Wing saw it's greatest use (During the Galactic Civil war and the New Republic Era), the X-Wing was a fighter aircraft. I do not recall reading anywhere that the X-Wing had a "Bombing" capability (Proton Torpedoes are more of a 'missile' rather than a bomb). It is my opinion that the Y-Wing was used as the "Bomber" type spacecraft. I will consult my technical manuals and get back with some hard evidence on this.--Txredcoat 22:17, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
I'm not sure what disgusts me more, the fact that this guy appears to have a Haynes manual for an X-Wing or that I feel the need to share this with you.
