Time to hear it for the Rebels!! Loved this ship even more than I did the X-Wing.

Probably the most underrated fighter in Star Wars, fighter isn't even really the correct terminology for it, attacker or strike fighter(I use the term loosely) would be more appropriate.

I'd bet the Rebels would have stopped the Empire's offensive on Hoth if they had actually used smarter tactics.
Hold the infantry back in a defensive position,  deploy the Y-Wings to destroy the Imperial AT-ATs and AT-ATs, with X-Wings screening any TIE fighter squadrons trying to intercept the attackers, and once their walkers had been destroyed, Rebel infantry could engage the stormtroopers with Y-Wings providing close air support.

Instead the battle in the film was one of the most tactically stupid battles in sci-fi, the snowspeeders were entirely unnecessary and there wasn't a single TIE fighter or bomber in the air to cover the ground forces' advance.

How did the Empire manage to conquer the galaxy when their military strategists are clearly idiots?

And don't get me started on how Star Destroyers and square-cube law.
