You should have turned this into a real poll. It would be interesting to see the results. You can do that on this forum.

Luke's X-wing with Artoo

or the starship enterprise, just kidding.

I remember playing Super Return of the Jedi and always hitting the trees on the speeder bike level. If I could effectively maneuver one of those puppies without killing myself, then I'd take that.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

Everyone forgets the T-47 Airspeeder (aka Snowspeeder)…

Did you not spend far too much time years ago playing Rogue Squadron games and using your harpoons and tow cables at AT-ATs to circle around to bring them down before finally getting the hang of it - and then achieving Gold Medal status…?
 

“The Snowspeeder, modified with armoured plating, stronger outboard laser canons and a harpoon tow cable for the rear gunnner is not a true flightcraft - but a repulsorcraft - so the flight ceiling is quite low. It hugs the ground well and is also quite maneuverable - but the addition of deflector shields was deemed costly and time-consuming - so watch yourself! The controls are quite similar to the X-Wing - so don’t worry about additional training.”

 
C’mon people, did Dak die for nothing? 😉
 

 

I would have used the recently necro-bumped X-Wing or Y-Wing, which ship would you prefer? - but that thread is really for X-Wing and Y-Wing ships (as its title suggests) - hence the bump for this thread…

I like it 😃

(and looks like something Starbuck and mortal enemy Cy would have to work together to build from their respective damaged ships whilst marooned together on an alien planet…)

and would certainly confuse the opposing forces; do we open fire or not…? Too late! A cunning plan…

I think it would confuse everyone; both the enemy and the friendly forces. I guess in the heat of the battle, the likely approach would be “let’s just shoot it down, better safe than sorry”. 😄

Respect for the old-skool games and gamers (and lack of fingerprints from touching overheating cartridges and gaming units back in the day) 😃

15 YEARS this thread sat sleeping! I love these necrobumps!

Wasn’t that Buick supposed to be the car from Men In Black?
I loved using it! I’d fly around blasting TIEs while listening to Buick Mackane by T REX.
(you should all listen to that, by the way)

^ I thought it was the same car used to crash the Star Destroyer Bridge? (an in-joke? as it was the substitute for the A-Wing crashing through the Executor bridge on film?)

 
 

Speaking of which…

The A-Wing

…my favourite craft, much overooked and doesn’t get much love (I looked in the recently necrobumped X-Wing or Y-Wing, which ship would you prefer? thread and in the ‘Ships & Vehicles Index’ but couldn’t find a thread for it - so will post some love here (in ‘ooj’ style)
 

The ship that brought down the Super Star Destroyer ‘Executor’…

^ Respect and remember Green Squadron! 😃

If anyone has some images of the A-Wing models being built or used by Lucasfilm for ROTJ, please post them up!

 

obligatory Rogue Squadron reference:

“The A-Wing is fasted fighter we have - capable of matching a TIE Interceptor in speed. Twin J77 Event Horizon engines power the craft and twin blaster canons provide offensive weaponry. However, what we gain speed we lose in defence - deflector shield capability is significantly less than the X-Wing - so make sure you use your speed to dodge lasers than rely on shields. The A-Wing also carries a limited number of missiles.”

No fate but what we make - apart from force dyads!

Much love to the A-Wing!
I love all four of the rebels fighters. Best starfighters in all of sci-fi.

Also respect to the TIEs. Fighter, bomber & interceptor.
The original fighter is my favorite of the bunch. Those huge wings make it look gothic & intimidating.

^ There is another… 😉

My personal favourite - and a great ship to pilot in the games - yet also doesn’t get much recognition in general amongst the more popular X-Wing, Y-Wing, Falcon and TIE conversations. A classy and elegant ship… from a more civilised time…

The B-Wing

Mandatory (😉) Rogue Squadron game blurb:-

“One of the Rebellion’s well-armed starfighters - the B-Wing has been personally designed by Admiral Ackbar. The B-Wing supports an array of weapons including ion cannons, proton torpedo launchers and laser canons. Because the cockpit is surrounded by a unique gyro-stabilisation system the pilot always remains stationary - even as the rest of the ship rotates during flight.”

 

Edit: sweet A-Wing post above too, Fated 😃
