Perhaps of all starfighters, the Incom T-65, otherwise known as the X-Wing from the Star Wars series, is the most recognizable. Built to deliver massive firepower from its four wingtip lasers, the X-Wing was made to counter the maneuverable TIE fighter. It is also equipped with hyperdrive, so it can fly separately from warping capital ships.
