Out of curiosity, did Fantasy Flight buy the rights to this your iteration of this ship’s design? If not, it’s uncannily similar…

Do I see a pair of LTL’s in the horizontal wing roots?

On a stock XG1 those are probably heavy lasers, though I recall Fractal tinkering with an exclusively LTL-armed Starwing variant somewhere waaaay back in his thread on the stardestroyer.net board.

Say, what is that hatch at the back? Could it be used to mount a LTL like your escort shuttle?

Escort shuttle’s turret might not fit back there, but I could see a pair of TIE-yield guns working out.

Is this closer to a starfighter or carrier?
It looks like a carrier but looks like it could use more space if it was one.

Basically seems to be a large, fast, punchy fighter-bomber, somewhat akin to various twin-engine WWII attack birds.

It is neither. It is a gunboat, so basically an attack craft.

Oh those are ion cannons huh I should have look it up on wookiepedia but it is neat to have them nonetheless.

But now that I look at it from time to time I think those ion cannons shouldn’t be on top of the cockpit because when it fire it could hurt the pilot’s eyes or worst blind them so I would have put those ion cannons under the cockpit just to be safe.

So Fractal about those two laser cannons on top of the starwing cockpit is it the same caliber as the TIEs chin laser cannons or higher?
