After the fall of the Empire at Endor and it's final gasps at Jakku, the New Republic was trying to consolidate it's military into a more efficient force. As such it went to it's partner ship builders looking for improvements and/or new ships to replace it's aging ragtag fleet of capital ships and star fighters. Now while the B-wing was in fact a very new and modern design, it did reveal several glaring weaknesses in it's design even though it was still very effective at what it was tasked for.

Taking the basic design of the B-wing E2, Slayn and Korpil looked at the issues the ship had and did several key modifications to the ships overall design and function. In the process they increased the offensive power and the defensive capabilities significantly though at a cost in price.

Once this fighter was ready for manufacturing however, the New republic was in the midst of a demilitarization and as such this ship saw limited production with only a few wings being produced before production was halted. While the ships they had were a very effective for the New Republic, it's limited numbers were a hindrance to usage and deployment.

Later in it's efforts against the First Order, the resistance did manage to acquire a few but they were RARE to see with any Resistance forces generally speaking, being typically used to protect the fleet as opposed to being used in offensive operations.

As a sidenote, with the sudden halting of production, there was a large glut of parts available sold off resulting it a lot of kit bashed ships like the Resistance Transports that used B-wing Mk II cockpit modules among other parts.
