Description:The X-5 'Tiger II' Multi-role fighter came about from Kurayami looking back through old squadron records. He came across something that his old flight lead, Erich had been working on. It was a design for a more well rounded fighter for Aquila Squadron, though they were known for their ability to cause havoc in A-Wings, he felt that a more survivable craft would be helpful. The craft incorporated 3 J-77 Event Horizon engines with three dimensional thrust vectoring to provide an experience similar to that of flying an unmodified A-Wing,which the pilots were used to. It would not be as fast or nimble as the other craft, but it would carry a more versatile and hard hitting weapons loadout in the inclusion of 4 L-s 9.3 laser cannons, an electromagnetic plasma repeating cannon, and a single general purpose warhead launcher. It was meant for multiple roles instead of purely anti-starfighter duty, and the loadout reflected such.

The defenses were only slightly greater than that afforded by an A-Wing, but this was seen as a necessary sacrifice, in addition to the exclusion of any onboard droid brain or socket. Military grade particle and ray shields could take a few solid hits before needing to recharge, but the hull would take only a couple solid hits from a medium cannon at best, and forget about a direct missile strike, that would easily destroy the fighter. Near misses were survivable from a starfighter grade missile, but would still require serious repairs after all was said and done.
