The BTL-B Y-wing starfighter was a heavy fighter and bomber utilized by the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars. The fighter featured armor plating on its y-shaped fuselage and a spherical turret where the ship's ion cannons were located. The hyperdrive unit on board the fighter allowed to operate at long ranges than other ships without needing assistance from a hyperdrive ring or carrier vessel.
The Y-wing yielded an arsenal of forward mounted laser cannons, ion cannons, proton torpedo launchers and proton bombs.
As a two man fighter the Y-wing needed a pilot and gunner to operate efficiently and the ship also was capable of hosting its own astromech droid.
Shadow of Malevolence
The BTL-B saw its first use during the Malevolence crisis where Anakin Skywalker, his apprentice, Ahsoka Tano and Jedi Master Plo Koon faced off against General Grievous' flagship. In this engagement the ship displayed the effectiveness of their complement of weaponry in disabling the Malevolence and its massive ion cannons saving the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center.
