  1. Personally, I’m not too fond of those designs who put aesthetic over practicality. Even the V-19, who was basically a Upsilon upside down with a fin, had an additional engine to make it look less awkward.
    But yeah, this design is gorgeous.

    • This is a response to Gorkmalork. Sorry for missing the “reply” button.

        Eh, pretty sure I’ve done that 3 times in a row. At least this isn’t one of the double-digit reply threads.
        Anyhow, I suppose the Delta & Lambda make concessions of their own to aesthetic flow with those huge dorsal fins-they’re just balanced enough designs to look decent in flight *or* on a pad.

  2. This way better looking then Krennic’s or Kylo Ren’s shuttle

    • Yeah, it’s probably partly because its engine nozzles are placed on its center of gravity, contrary to the Delta and the Upsilon. It just feel right.

        The R1 & TFA Ominous Official(R) shuttles seem to have this odd ‘spooky when settling in to land’ aesthetic which leaves ’em looking rather awkward in flight. In other news, amazing how this old game design has been refined & spruced-up; even the aft LTL mount doesn’t compromise its elegance too much.
