Background Information

    The more the Empire tightened its grip on the people of the galaxy, the harder the Alliance fought to restore the Republic. Born shortly after Palpatine's transformation of the Old Republic into the Galactic Empire, the Alliance started as little more than a rag-tag group of freedom fighters woefully under-equipped to challenge an enemy as mighty as the Galactic Empire. The continued injustices of the Empire, however, brought many into the Rebellion's fold.
As it grew, so to did its arsenal. To combat the Imperial starfleet, the Alliance's hotshot pilots made do with battle-worn yet effective craft like X-wing and Y-wing starfighters. More Info

Ground Units

        Rebel Soldier
        The freedom fighters of the galaxy, this ragtag group is not to be underestimaed. Formally they are organized into divisions, regiments, companies, platoons, and squads but, because of their low numbers, they operate in task forces.

        Cold Assault Rebel Ranger

        A variant of the Rebel Soldier, with gear more suited for cold climates.
        User image
        Plex Trooper
        Another variant of the Rebel Soldier, armed with a PLX-1 rocket launcher.

Space Units

        Mon Calamari Liberty-class Starship
        Longer, and more powerful than the MC80 Starship, this ship provides decent opposition to even a Star Destroyer. Her hangers are buried near wingroots providing excellent protection to launching starfighters.

        Mon Calamari MC80 Starship

        Mostly coverted Merchant vessels, these large ships are no match for an Imperial Star Destroyer. They make up for their lack of firepower with immense amounts of sheilding.
        User image
        CR90 Corellian Corvette
        Widely known as the Blockade Runner this nimble ship posseses the ability to break through an Imperial blockade. One of the more notable vessels of this type is Princess Leia's Tantive IV.

        User image
        Nebulon-B Escort Frigate

        Built for use by the Empire, the Rebel Alliance "liberated" some of these ships and put them to good use. Sometimes used as long-range scouts, search and rescue ships, or even mobile hospitals.
        User image
        X-Wing Starfighter
        Descended from the Z-95 Headhunter, the X-Wing Starfighter makes up the majority of the Rebel Fleet. Armed with four Taim & Bak KX9 laser cannons, and proton torpedo tubes.

        User image
        Y-Wing Starfighter

        Though less manueverable, it is much more durable than the X-Wing or A-Wing Starfighters. Armed with two laser cannons, two ion cannons, and two proton torpedo launchers.
        User image
        A-Wing Starfighter
        Designed to combat the TIE Interceptor this fighter is the smallest and fastest of all the fighters used by the Rebels. Though the A-Wing is no match for the TIE Advanced, it can still put up quite a fight.
