Developed two years before the Y-Wing, the
Spearhead earned neither the widespread use or deadly reputation
of its famous cousin.
Ground crew loved the ease of maintenance and small flight deck space used by the craft, but it was not a favourite with pilots. While enjoying greater maneuverability, the poor engine thrust rating limited its effectiveness in scouting and interception roles. By the time of the Battle of Yavin, production had ceased and the alliance used Spearheads chiefly for patrol duty. Due to similarities with the Y-Wing many were cannibalised for parts, a fact that may have led to the Y-Wing remaining in operational roles for so many years.
