Was this inspired by the Protoss Observer from the original StarCraft (not StarCraft 2)?

Is this a sort of TIE fighter?

So Fractal how big is the Probe ship like 20 meters in length or more?

Is this like, not a Viper probe droid, but the Prowler Probe Droid? This could be like a long-range version of the Prowler Probe. I know the Prowler is round, and this is triangular, but this could be sensor stealthed. That could be an interesting backstory for it.

I assume this sleek design has a rudimentary hyperdrive? Nice idea for an interstellar probe ship to ply the hyperlanes of the galaxy. It looks sleek and menacing without too many greebles like other droid designs.

This probe vessel isn’t meant to be involved in combat operations. Considering it’s purpose, I’d expect it to have the most sensitive sensor suite and EW abilities in the Imperial Navy; not weapons. It likely has a self destruct mechanism however, with fail safes (something that can’t be stopped by an ion cannon).

This sucker sports some interesting tri-lateral symmetry to complement the wings & sensor arpertures.

Viper probe droid was also a probe… but it was armed.

Understand, but it do have the same “no capture” protocol and can auto-destruct in case of imminent danger?

It’s absolutely unarmed?

It is a probe droid. For space. On Hoth, it made sense for the Viper to have a weapon, because of the bear-beasts there, but this is a space probe. Looks like it was built for long range observation, perhaps in an asteroid field?
