I don't know what it is I like about it so much, but I've always had a soft spot for it. It just looks like it would be an absolute blast to fly :lol:

I'd love to see this and other less known Merc and Outlaw ships in a future expansion.

Alpha-class Xg-1 Star Wing, firepower to the boot and the ability to take a hit from an advanced concussion missile and still keep flying. :)

Or the ship I want to try in FW ToW, the Skipray since being a light patrol ship sounds very interesting.

For me it's a tie between three ships. You may see a trend among them.
The A-Wing
The TIE Interceptor
The Nssis-class Clawcraft (Chiss Clutch)

Oddly enough, I'm not a fan of the TIE Defender. I don't like the inverted Solar Arrays.

The B-Wing is my overall favorite starfighter, it can dish it out and take it. Not to mention it's designed to take on capital ships so it can make for some fun strafing runs. On the Imperial side, I think I'd go for the TIE Interceptor. It may lack shields, but it's speed and maneuverability make up for that disadvantage.

On the capital ship side, I've always fancied both the Nebulon B Frigate and the Strike-class Cruiser, which were used interchangeably on both sides in X-Wing vs TIE-Fighter. Though in canon the Rebel Alliance/New Republic had only a few Strike Cruisers, and they were mainly operated by the Empire/Remnant. Anyway though, while those are my favorites I do enjoy pretty much every ship out there. I certainly can't wait to try out every playable ship you have in the mod.

Have to say the X-Wing. It's got a pretty balanced spec; Fast, reasonably maneuverable, well armed, and it can take some punishment. Plus that iconic X-form is pure beauty. Gotta love that ship!

RZ-1 A-Wing
Velocity is a greater ally in the combat.

The slight A-wing's wing-mounted laser cannons could rotate up and down sixty degrees for greater fire control. Some of those designs even had their guns modified to swivel in a complete 360-degree arc, thus providing a nasty surprise to any chasing fighter. -Wookipedia


Just awesome

I have to go with the B-Wing (especially the Expanded one). I've always favoured this particular Star Wars vessel the most. The design is absolutely amazing!

My favourite would be the HLAF-500 Heavy/Light Attack Fighter. Sizer told me it is not going to be in the mod. *sniffle*

Why do I like it? I just like the way it looks. And it is a Corellian design! Plus it has something of a WW2/ early Cold War look to it. Alternatively I also like the look of its earlier sibling, the LAF-250

I'm agreeing with ajtopper
The RZ-1 A-Wing is a beauty. Small and has a lot of power. It's basically a wing with 2 lasers on it, what more do you need? ^^
