Um, B-Wing?

Evenflow

B-Wings!

In before “It’s a trap!”

punkgawd

Yep. It is a B-wing. lol

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.

B-Wing, designed by Akbar himself

Kumba

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

theeris

well done! i’m actually impressed! Good on ya!!

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”
