The B-wing is a Rebel Alliance starfighter featured in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront. It was added for everyone in the Death Star expansion pack for Season Pass holders. If picked up, two B-wing starfighters will spawn in and assist you until they are destroyed or until you die. This pickup is currently only available for the Battle Station and Fighter Squadron.
- B-wings were mainly used for assaults on capital ships, such as Imperator-class Star Destroyers or Interdictor-class Star Destroyers. They usually had to be escorted around enemy starfighters by X-wings or A-wings before they could reach their bombing destination.
- Extended Universe media reveal that the B-wing was designed by Gial Ackbar in between Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi; in canon, they were designed by Quarrie as part of Project Shantipole.
- Notable B-wing squadrons were Blade Squadron, featured in Star Wars Rebels amongst other media, and Blue Squadron, who flew at the Battle of Endor, and in the Extended Universe, Nova Squadron, who helped destroy Warlord Zsinj's Executor-class Super Star Destroyer, Razor's Kiss. Losing this critical ship assisted the New Republic in taking down the tyrannical Warlord.
