The T-65BR X-wing Reconnaissance Starfighter, commonly called the Recon-X or Snoopscoot, is a variant of the Incom T-65 X-wing Starfighter modified for reconnaissance missions; usually from earlier model X-wings such as the T-65AC1 or T-65AC2. The Recon-X is considered a vast improvement over the aged and slow Longprobe Y-wings, and features an advanced, high-gain, long-range sensor package with high-speed hypertransceivers in place of the standard X-wing's proton torpedo launchers.
An onboard R2-R-series astromech droid coordinates the sensors to provide maximum efficiency, a requirement when jumping into potentially dangerous zones. It is also equipped with a HoloNet communicator that enables it to relay its findings instantaneously to allied command centers.
The Recon-X uses updated engines and etheric rudder prototypes to eliminate the need for thrusters. In the event that a Recon-X is captured, the pilot is armed with a deadman baradium charge that will destroy the vessel and its recorded data if the pilot is killed. The Recon-X lacks weaponry other than its laser cannons, as the space and energy are used for the sensor package.
