Ready for another dev blog on a Star Wars: The Old Republic
starfighter? Well, good, because I'm going to summarize it for you right now. Today's entry is penned by BioWare's Brian Audette
, who focuses on the Strike Fighter and calls it his "personal favorite ship role" from the game's Galactic Starfighter
Audette compares SWTOR's
Strike Fighters to the more familiar X-Wing from the original trilogy, saying that the former "are some of the most versatile and important ships to ever fly for either the Empire or the Republic." The ships are equally adept at dogfighting or hammering stationary targets, he continues, and Strike Fighter pilots can swap between two primary or secondary weapons.
