30278 Poe's X-wing Fighter is a promotional Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens set released in 2015. It contains a mini-scale version of 75102 Poe's X-Wing Starfighter.

Description

The set contains 64 pieces that contain a miniature X-wing. The nose of the starfighter is made out of black and orange bricks, and the cockpit is a 1x1 transparent slanted slab. The engines are made out of Part 64288, and the side laser cannons are Part 3957.

Background

The T-70 X-wing starfighter, also known as the T-70 X-wing fighter, was the successor to the T-65B X-wing starfighter, manufactured by Incom-FreiTek for use by the New Republic Defense Fleet.

Faster and more expensive and complex than the former T-65B, the T-70 featured advanced weaponry and proved more versatile than its predecessor, and was essential in both dogfights and capital-ship scale combat operations. Appropriated S-foils designs allowed a greater range of fire, while four KX12 laser cannons offered single, dual, and quad firing modes. A built in dual proton torpedo launcher with quick-change magazines permitted the utilization of alternative armaments. New Republic demilitarization efforts and corruption would ultimately see production of the vessel shifted to several well-connected manufacturers. The T-70 would be eventually replaced by the newer T-85 X-wing.

Following its retirement from service in the New Republic Starfleet, the T-70 became the front line starfighter of the Resistance in its fight against the First Order approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor.
