ReconXWing

The T-65BR X-wing reconnaissance starfighter, commonly called the Recon-X or Snoopscoot, was a variant of the Incom T-65 X-wing starfighter modified for reconnaissance missions. A vast improvement over the aged and slow Longprobe Y-wings, the T-65BR featured an advanced, high-gain, long-range sensor package with high-speed hypertransceivers in place of the standard X-wing's proton torpedo launchers. The sensor packages were mounted on probes that were launched from the craft and tethered to it by cables. The on-board R2-R-series astromech droid coordinated the sensors to provide maximum efficiency, a requirement when jumping into potentially dangerous zones. It was also equipped with a HoloNet communicator that enabled it to relay its findings instantaneously to allied command centers.
