Star Wars - Republic E-wing Escort Starfighter Free Papercraft DownloadThis papercraft is a Republic E-wing Escort Starfighter, a single-pilot starfighter developed by FreiTek Inc, based on the series, the papercraft is created by Tulio Roberto. There are Rogue Squadron and Blue Squadron two versions available.

E-wing was the first fighter designed entirely under the support of the New Republic. As designed, the E-wing was intended to match, or exceed, the performance of the preceding X-wing series in nearly every respect, and was originally intended to replace the older design in New Republic service. However, the craft suffered from some significant problems when first deployed among front-line squadrons, including malfunction issues with the laser cannons and the new R7 astromech units. As a result, many pilots continued to fly upgraded versions of the venerable X-wing.

Despite the initial problems, improved models of the E-wing would see wide spread use by the New Republic, particularly by the Fifth Fleet, and later by the Galactic Alliance. They would play a significant role in every engagement from the Black Fleet Crisis, through the Yuuzhan Vong War, and beyond.

By the time of the Second Galactic Civil War, the E-wing had matured into an excellent starfighter design and equipped several elite squadrons of the Galactic Alliance. However, it never achieved the same popularity or wide spread use as the X-wing. [Source: wikia]
