    4. This is an early design drawing. Yes, those fighters ultimately became known as the Slayn & Korpil B-Wing, but only after a lot of refinement, such as the gyroscopic cockpit and the folding wings were later added in (plus some smoothing of the fighter’s profile).

      • They’re not for space. B-Wings are atmospheric-capable, so those are there as stabilizers when it enters a planet’s atmosphere. Ditto for most of the other Rebel craft.

        • The wings also let you mount weapons apart from each other in order to focus your fire on a point in front of your fighter. I think its supposed to be a concept from WW2 fighter planes, just like all the dogfight scenes in SW eps 4-6.
