I propose that the name of this entry be changed to Transformer. It is both an X and Y Wing, but the title favours only one of those.

If we include strategies here, then this should include a notice on using the Y-form to accelerate into a charge, then coasting in on the X-form, leaving enough time to recover battery.

Also, is it worth pointing out that X-form vs Ilwrath, though a slugfest slanted against the X-form, still has a good strategy and a bad strategy?

That is, a good strategy is for the X-form to ram the Ilwrath with lasers blazing, then use a touch of thrust coming off the bounce to get a good, medium range while moving away from the Ilwrath, yet tempting the Ilwrath to continue its charge. Ideally, the Ilwrath will have to traverse the 'hot spot' at a low relative velocity.

Yes, severe damage will be taken, but it comes out better than the naive 'charge' strategy. - Death 999 13:48, 22 Dec 2005 (EST)

The names X-Wing and Y-Wing can't possibly be canon. Are they? --Shiver 14:46, 3 September 2008 (CEST)

See page 85 in the SC2 PC manual (or page 36 in the 3DO manual). I don't know if it appears anywhere else in the canon, such as the code or dialogue (though I'm pretty sure it's not in the dialogue). --Fyzixfighter 21:00, 3 September 2008 (CEST)
I see it. Guess we'd better leave it alone. --Shiver 08:57, 4 September 2008 (CEST)
It might need a reference in the Notes and references section if it's from a manual. Valaggar 09:20, 4 September 2008 (CEST)
Got it. Someone bringing up the question of whether information is canon or not is probably the best indicator of when to use notes/refs. --Fyzixfighter 18:30, 4 September 2008 (CEST)
