The Defense-Class Arwingis a larger, slower version of the Arwing used by Peppy Hare and Slippy Toad in Star Fox 2. It shares little resemblance with the actual Arwing. This craft lacked speed, but made up for it with defense. Its default special item is the heart, which restores shielding.


The Defense-Class Arwing looks much bulkier in comparison to the regular Arwing. Appropriately, it has the greatest resistance of the three Arwings in this game at 20 hit points, comparable to the regular's 16 and especially the 12 of the Interceptor-Class Arwing. The difference may not seem so large, but it could very well be a determining factor.

This ship is also controlled by Slippy and Peppy in an earlier known prototype. Transforming on land would turn it into an insect-like biped. The three Arwings presented in the early prototype only have cosmetic differences and seem to control the same as any of the others.

  • The front "beak" of ship somewhat resembles the Wolfen II cockpit.
  • The sole purpose of the Defense-Class Arwing is most similar to that of real world Ground Attack and CAS aircraft notably the Russian Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik, Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot, Sukhoi Su-22 Fitter (More of a Strike Aircraft though), and the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-27 Flogger-J as well as the American Counter-parts including the Northrop-Grumman YA-9, Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, the Grumman A-6E Intruder, and the Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II. These are notable examples of aircraft similar to the Defense-Class Arwing with similar design on some.
  • In Star Fox Command, Slippy's Arwing, the "Bullfrog" is strongly resembles the Defense-Class Arwing from Star Fox 2 and shares some similar static.
