In several places, including here, it is mentioned that X-Wings are an iconic image of the Rebel Alliance.
Did any unaffiliated faction ever regularly fly X-Wings? By unaffiliated, I mean factions other than the following:
- Rebel Alliance
- New Republic
For example, did any pirate factions regularly fly X-Wings? Independent planetary militias? Any X-Wing flying Bounty Hunters? Did Jabba have a squadron of X-Wings tucked away somewhere?
Stolen X-Wings count if the stolen X-Wings were incorporated into the faction's star fleet and flown regularly. One or two stolen fighters used on special missions don't count. For example, if a downed Imperial TIE Fighter pilot stole a Rebel X-Wing in order to escape Hoth and make it back to his carrier so he could continue to fly TIE Fighters, that doesn't count. If he was allowed to keep it and fly it regularly as his assigned fighter until it was so worn out or damaged that Imperial mechanics couldn't repair it anymore, it can count.
For purposes of this question, "X-Wing" means T-65 and T-70 craft, as well as any obviously substantially similar craft. The ARC-170 doesn't count.
