Starfighters V2

T-70 X-wing:

06692

The next step in evolution, the T-70, takes the best starfighter ever, and makes it even better. That’s enough for the best pilot in the resistance to make it his chosen ride.

Special Forces First Order TIE Fighter:first-order-special-forces-tie-fighter_544db559

Unlike Imperial fighters, First Order TIEs have deflector shields to protect them from enemy fire, or at least not be destroyed by the first shot. They are operated two troopers, a pilot and a gunner.

Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle:kylo-ren_s-command-shuttle_0b43b874

We don’t know a whole lot about this shuttle, but we do know that it’s awesome.

Resistance Troop Transport:

Although seen in the movie, we don’t know anything about them except from the Lego set.

The Finalizer:pj0010_a0ab2179

Shared by Kylo Ren and General Hux, The Finalizer is the first star destroyer built in violation of the New Republic’s treaties. It’s almost twice as long as Imperial-era destroyers.

First Order Transporter:first-order-transporter_2e0b9ea3

The First Order uses this transport for troop deployment, transport, and even ground assault. Extra: those awesome flametroopers wouldn’t be anywhere without these.

Starfighters

These are the most famous starfighters from Star Wars movies 1-6, with brief descriptions of them.

X-Wing Starfighter

xw1

X-Wings may be the most obvious starfighter in all of Star Wars, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t the best. A laser cannon on each wing, a proton torpedo launcher, hyperdrive, life support, and an astromech socket, it is the true classic. If we could step into one starfighter’s cockpit, it would be this one.

Y-Wing Starfighter

Perfect for everything from bombing runs to scouting missions, Y-wings are the workhorses of the rebel fleet. Earlier models were fully armored, however some of the armor plating was removed for enhanced maneuverability.

TIE Fighter

The chilling whine. The menacing design. Twin Ion Engine Fighters are the main force of the Imperial Navy in episodes 4-6, and they earn their keep double.

TIE Advanced X1

The Chosen ride of Darth Vader, the TIE X1 is a heavily armored version of the TIE reserved for the Imperial Elite.

Millenium Falcon

mil-fal-2

Han Solo’s smuggling starship is a scoundrel’s paradise. With two quad-laser cannons, smuggling compartments, an array of concussion missles, it is truly the fastest hunk of junk in the Galaxy.

Slave 1

Boba Fett’s flagship has everything a bounty hunter could need: two twin-laser canons, two proton torpedo launchers, ion canons, seismic charges, heat seekera, and an amazing hyperdrive. Much like it’s pilot, it never runs out of surprises.

A-Wing Starfighter

l6o3vwgr1wdzfgvmjlco_a-wing1

The fastest fighter in the rebel fleet. Take a lesson from Yoda: judge it by it’s size do not.

B-Wing Starfighter

3 words: gyroscopic rotating cockpit.

Naboo N1 starfighter

n-1_starfighter

An elegant starfighter for a more civilized age, used exclusively by the Naboo Royal Fleet.

Jedi Starfighter

The Delta 7-b Aethersprite-class Light Interceptor has seen it all; no wonder the galaxy’s protecters make it their fighter of choice.

V-Wing Starfighter

v-wing

The Alpha-3 Nimbus-class Interceptor was used by both the Republic and the Empire.

Vulture Droid

cis_vulture_01

It walks. It talks. It’s the creepiest Seperatist starfigher ever.

ARC-170 Starfighter

It takes 3 clone troopers and an astromech to operate, and the result is amazing.
