Empire Magazine has released a new image featuring Poe Dameron’s improved X-Wing starfighter as it appears in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The image offers fans a glimpse of Dameron’s modified X-Wing codenamed Black One, which has been retrofitted by Resistance engineers with a newly attached accelerator pod on the tail of the starfighter. Director Rian Johnson revealed that the newest addition increases the X-Wing’s speed, allowing Dameron to outrun fire from the First Order, although the boost is only temporary and will not last long. Of course, fans will have to wait until the film arrives in theaters this winter to see Dameron pilot the new and improved X-Wing.
