Bomber armed with proton torpedoes and ion cannons. Torpedoes are able to bypass shields. Ideally suited to attacking the larger enemy ships and space stations. 3 bombers per squadron.
The Y-Wing is generally better than its Imperial counterpart, the TIE Bomber. Its ion cannons are capable of disabling an enemy vessel's shields and weapons for a short window, allowing the bomber to complete its attack run unimpeded. In addition, its ion cannon makes it less vulnerable to corvettes than the TIE.
