From the post:
On the surface, the Y-wing may not seem all that impressive. While it does have a thicker hull than the T-65 X-wing, it’s not nearly as maneuverable and it can’t match the X-wing in terms of firepower from its primary weapon. What the Y-wing lacks in basic stats, however, it makes up for in customizability. Y-wings can be outfitted with a number of upgrades, including turrets, torpedoes, astromechs, and bombs, greatly increasing its firepower and making it a more than worthwhile addition to your squadron.
