The Y-Wing Starfighter is a main ship of the Rebel Alliance. It was used in the destruction of the first Death Star in A New Hope and was also vital in the destruction of the second one too. It was used mainly as a bombing ship because of its huge payload.
In LEGO's official descriptions, R5-F7 is incorrectly referred to as R2-A3, a droid owned by Wedge Antilles.
Interestingly, the ceremonial outfit princess Leia wears here is not shown until the end of the movie, at which point this ship has been destroyed and Dutch Vander killed; this is one of a number of cases of artistic license taken by Lego in various Star Wars sets.
This Y-Wing would later appear in Star Wars Rebels, in which its acquisition by the Rebel Alliance is depicted.
