There’s a cool reveal on the cover of the book which is the new red B-wing fighter:

I really liked when in the Season II premiere of Star Wars Rebels they had the A-wings with a blue McQuarrie paint job like his concept art depicted (seen in the top left of the book cover). This red B-wing is kind of the hotrod of B-wings, if you ask me. I dig it. The B-wing was meant to be a bigger part of Return of the Jedi but there were compositing issues and they weren’t used as prominently. I’m glad to potentially see an opportunity to feature this cool ship more. As a kid, the fact the cockpit had weights and was always upright made it a super fun toy. I support B-wing modification!

EDIT:

YakFace reminded me on Twitter we’ve seen this before in the Rebel Season 2 teaser. I’m clearly slipping in my old age:
