I think the “just plain bad” comment was supposed to be a compliment, especially when taken into context with the thumbs up and fire. “Bad” is a dated term, but surely there are enough of us old guys who recall that “bad” can be good. Who could criticize Fractal’s work without being a self-hating troll?

So the missile tubes fire backwards and they sort of arc out towards their targets?

Given their low relative observed speed combined with the maneuverability, they probably work better against pursuing ships than they would fired as chasing shots.

Wasn’t it implied that the force guided the torpedoes?

My inference from the scene was that the Force acted as a supernaturally accurate and adaptable guidance system (better than any technological targeting computer could hope to be), but that the maneuver displayed at the exhaust port was entirely within the physical capabilities of the torpedoes themselves.

Hell of a fireworks show for the folks working flight/landing control if they spam off all those missiles at once.

Fractal, you are quality incarnate.

Couple of questions.

  • large circle in bow, that’s a boarding hatch?
  • What is a purpose of those large cylinders and hexagons in rear of bow. Missile tubes?
  • Pilots can’t enter those TIE’s on rear racks? They are just go piggyback in hyperspace?

Are those 6 cylinders at the bottom of the bow missile racks as well? I thought they are escape/boarding/landing pods or something like this.
