"Used for dogfights and for bombing runs against capital ships and ground targets, the BTL-B Y-wing is the workhorse of the Republic Navy."
— In-game description

The BTL-B Y-Wing is a vehicle for the Galactic Republic in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. It serves as the Republic's Bomber class in-game.

Overview[]

"Proton torpedoes make the BTL-B a threat to both capital ships and enemy starfighters, and astromech repair capabilities keep the ship flying."
— Website description

The BTL-B Y-Wing serves as the heavy hitter for its team, being able to deal heavy damage to objectives, enemy starfighters, or infantry on the ground if not taken care of. Despite it's firepower, it suffers from having decreased maneuverability compared to other ship classes.

The Astromech Repair ability regenerates any lost health to the Y-Wing, and can be used in order to increase the survivability of the ship in cases of prolonged pursuits.

With the ION Cannon Turret ability, the Y-Wing activates its ion cannons in order to slow down any enemies it is targeting, along with disabling their abilities and dealing some damage to them. This ability can prove devastating to any ships hit by it as it will leave them almost completely vulnerable to the Y-Wings arsenal of weapons.

The Twin Proton Torpedoes can lock onto enemy starfighters and be used in a fire and forget manner, and can also be used to attack objectives, infantry, and enemy Armor. Well-placed torpedoes can deal tremendous damage to any enemy, including Villains and Armor. The Proton Torpedoes can be dumbfired by double-tapping the ability, while tapping it once and keeping sight of a target allows them to lock on.
