Ship Sizes

There are four different ship sizes: small, medium, large, and huge.

A small ship uses a plastic base that is about 1-9/16" (4 cm) long. The rules of X-Wing are written for small ships and therefore there are no special exceptions for small ships.

A medium ship uses a plastic base that is about 2-3/8" (6 cm) long. Medium ships have the following exceptions:

  • A medium ship requires two ion tokens before it is ionized and two tractor tokens before it is tractored.
  • Medium ships barrel roll differently (including while decloaking).

A large ship uses a plastic base that is about 3-1/8" (8 cm) long. Large ships have the following exceptions:

  • A large ship requires three ion tokens before it is ionized and three tractor tokens before it is tractored.
  • Large ships barrel roll differently (including while decloaking).
  • During setup, a large ship's base may extend outside of range 1 as long as it fills the length of that area. A large ship cannot be placed with any portion of its base outside the play area.

A huge ship uses more than one plastic base. Huge ships have many additional rules. They were introduced in the first edition of X-Wing and will be reintroduced in an upcoming product.
