The '''Light Arwing'''<ref>https://www.nintendo.co.jp/clvs/manuals/starfox2/html/EUen/procedure.html</ref> is a smaller, faster version of the [[Arwing]] used by [[Miyu]] and [[Fay]] in ''[[Star Fox 2]]''.

In contrast to the regular Prototype Arwing, the Light Arwing is much thinner, consisting of a split front end and wings that angled towards the back of the ship instead of outwards as with the Prototype Arwing. The Light Arwing is likely the most combat-ready ship in the game, as it can fire charge shots off at a higher rate than the other Arwings in the game. However, it has the weakest shield resistance of the three Arwings presented in this game, at 12 hit points, compared to 16 for the Prototype Arwing and 20 for the [[Armoured Arwing]]. The small margin of resistance between the Light and Prototype Arwings could make a large difference when fighting tough enemies.
   
The '''Interceptor-Class Arwing''' would have been a smaller, faster version of the [[Arwing]] used by [[Miyu]] and [[Fay]] in the unreleased ''[[Star Fox 2]]''. This craft lacked defense, but made up for it in speed. Its default special item is the [[Barrier Sphere|barrier]], and it comes already equipped with twin [[Laser]]s. The class of ship has never officialy appeared in any other game in the [[Star Fox series]].

In an earlier known prototype, the ship had much smaller wings that angled down, rather than backwards. Its pilots were represented by [[Andross]] and [[Fara Phoenix]], respectively known as "Saru" and "Lady" and possibly placeholders before new pilot designs were implemented. When it transformed on land maps, it turned into a bipedal walker with locomotion similar to that of a bird. Other than design, there were no real differences gameplay wise.

—Official Web Manual

The Light Arwing[1] is a smaller, faster version of the Arwing used by Miyu and Fay in Star Fox 2. This craft lacked defense, but made up for it in speed. Its default special item is the super shield.

AppearanceEdit

In contrast to the regular Prototype Arwing, the Light Arwing is much thinner, consisting of a split front end and wings that angled towards the back of the ship instead of outwards as with the Prototype Arwing. The Light Arwing is likely the most combat-ready ship in the game, as it can fire charge shots off at a higher rate than the other Arwings in the game. However, it has the weakest shield resistance of the three Arwings presented in this game, at 12 hit points, compared to 16 for the Prototype Arwing and 20 for the Armoured Arwing. The small margin of resistance between the Light and Prototype Arwings could make a large difference when fighting tough enemies.

In an earlier known prototype, the ship had much smaller wings that angled down, rather than backwards. Its pilots were represented by Andross and Fara Phoenix, respectively known as "Saru" and "Lady" and possibly placeholders before new pilot designs were implemented. When it transformed on land maps, it turned into a bipedal walker with locomotion similar to that of a bird. Other than design, there were no real differences gameplay wise.
