Star Wars - E-Wing Retrofit - Escort Starfighter

by   Mod Seeras  2 months ago

After a long building break i'm happy to present you my newest creation.
It's a modernised E-Wing Fighter from the Star Wars Legends Universe.
Special thanks to MasterKiryu for his help with the nose section.
Additionaly i used some Parts from Wahrscheinlichich for the engines.


Normal Flight Controls
AG1-6 "Proton torpedos"


I'm quite happy with the flight characteristics
Sadly it tilts a bit to the side but thats easy to compensate.


History:
The E-wing escort starfighter was a single-pilot starfighter developed by FreiTek Inc. It was the first fighter designed entirely under the support of the New Republic.

As designed, the E-wing was intended to match, or exceed, the performance of the preceding X-wing series in nearly every aspect, and was originally intended to replace the older design in New Republic service. However, the craft suffered from some significant problems when first deployed among front-line squadrons, including malfunction issues with the laser cannons and the new R7 astromech units. As a result, many pilots continued to fly upgraded versions of the venerable X-wing.
Despite the initial problems, improved models of the E-wing would see wide spread use by the New Republic, particularly by the Fifth Fleet, and later by the Galactic Alliance. They would play a significant role in every engagement from the Black Fleet Crisis, through the Yuuzhan Vong War, and beyond.
By the time of the Second Galactic Civil War, the E-wing had matured into an excellent starfighter design and equipped several elite squadrons of the Galactic Alliance. However, it never achieved the same popularity or wide spread use as the X-wing.
