Конструкторы захватили с собой все чертежи и прототипы крестокрыла. Их побег стал большой потерей для Империи, а для повстанцев обратился первым значительным технологическим прорывом. Rebel technicians used this fact to train new pilots without using any of the expensive X-wings. The Jedi tended to use StealthX or earlier XJ3 series.
This design was later used for the Z-95 Headhunter. An X-Wing, alongside a TIE/ln Starfighter, make a very brief cameo as an inside joke in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones during Anakin and Obi-Wan’s chase against Zam Wesell, where the former vessel was chasing the latter. During the early years of the Galactic Civil War, the Rebellion had a small supply of such weapons, due to their high price. They had two pairs of wing-like strike-foils, or S-foils, mounted at the rear of the craft on opposite sides. This eventually led to the Empire’s development of the TIE/IN interceptor and, later, the TIE Hunters, a direct counter to the X-wing that possessed S-foils, proton torpedo launchers, and ion cannons.

Other warheads, such as concussion missiles, could be fitted as an alternative secondary weapon. The X-wing, unlike most fighters of the TIE Series, was equipped with a hyperdrive. При движении на обычных субсветовых космических скоростях сдвоенные крылья смыкаются, создавая впечатление, что истребитель имеет лишь 2 крыла. На окончании каждого крыла расположена мощная лазерная пушка.
