Star Wars Squadrons Ships Fighters, Interceptors, Support, and Bombers

Star Wars: Squadrons is the new first-person space combat game from EA releasing this upcoming fall. During the gameplay trailer, players got a look at all eight Star Wars: Squadrons ships, including the four classes: fighters, interceptors, support, and bombers. These four ship classes are available for both the New Republic and the Galactic Empire. 

Star Wars: Squadrons Ships Classes

  • Fighters
  • Interceptors
  • Support
  • Bombers


The Fighter ship class is the most all-around versatile class, suitable for almost any situation. Great for dogfights, and even powerful enough to take down enemy capital ships.

Tie Fighter – Galactic Empire

The TIE/LN fighter is the unforgettable symbol of the Imperial fleet. It is designed for high-speed dogfights against starfighters, and is flexible enough to challenge enemy capital ships.

X-Wing – New Republic

As the backbone starfighter of the Rebel fleet, the T-65B X-wing is an all-purpose starfighter that can deftly strike down enemy TIEs as well as capital ships.

A-Wing – New Republic

Since the early days of the Rebellion, the RZ-1 A-wing’s exceptional speed has made it a useful, agile counter to Imperial starfighters.
