    Um, B-Wing?

    Evenflow

    B-Wings!

    In before “It’s a trap!”

    punkgawd

    Gilez

    What are you guys talking about? that’s most certainly an a-wing.

    TheBleakranger

    ummmm hellooo??? t-wing?!?!?!?!?

    Kumba

    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).

    Thank you. I didn’t want it to be me that geeked out on this.

    Kumba

    And the Verpine, with their base-twelve mathematics, chipped in, too.

    Why do they need wings in space?

    Kumba

    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.

    pain in the ass to aim in x-wing vs tie fighter…

    theeris

    you’re doing it wrong then….

    Saborlas

    Has anyone said that this is actually a B-wing, yet?

    /the original design for the Millennium Falcon got used for something rather different, too

    If anyone was wondering, the “B” stands for “Bad motha fuckin ass”

  • Here's a few awesome images!
