The Phantom is a custom modified VCX-series auxiliary starfighter that appears in the Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels. Docked within its mothership, the Ghost, the Phantom is widely used by the Rebels of Lothal on numerous missions against the Galactic Empire.
Both the Phantom and the Ghost are vessels manufactured by the Corellian Engineering Corporation. The auxiliary ship is armed with a Taim & Bak MS-2B twin laser cannon and a Taim & Bak KX4 dorsal laser turret. The Phantom's interior has a former starfighter cockpit that had been sourced during an earlier raid, and is equipped with four swinging seats which could be folded to make way for goods. Located on the floor is a hatch which leads down to the Ghost's ship ladder.
The Phantom was capable of doubling as both a starfighter and shuttle; something that was maximized by its crew. It is also equipped with a jammer that allowed it to conceal its presence.
Behind the Scenes
The Ghost's attack shuttle was first identified as the Wolf in concept art that appeared in a video released on October 12, 2013. However, the ship was revealed as the Phantom at the January 2014 Nuremberg International Toy Fair, which announced a LEGO set featuring the shuttle. The set includes a detachable cockpit, a cargo hold for storing Ezra Bridger's cadet helmet and blaster, a spring-loaded missile, and encourages players to fly the Phantom into battle against the Galactic Empire's TIE Fighters.
