Welp. You know the deal. Pretty much anything Star Wars. The good, bad, and ugly. Mostly bad and ugly, though.

You thought it was a painted mini traffic cone on a unicycle... BUT IT WAS D-O.

I remember when SW designs filled me with wonder. Now they make me want to express my disappointment with visceral physical violence.

The E-wing escort fighter was a starfighter that existed during the Imperial Era. The Alliance Fleet utilized E-wings during the Galactic Civil War.[2] An E-wing was among the starships on sale at the Imperial auction on Mygeeto prior to the Battle of Endor.[1] Seceral decades later, during the cold war, Baron Paw Maccon owned an E-wing escort fighter as part of his starfighter collection.[3]

Also, I like how in the EU, they talk about new fighters for the New Republic since they're now the superpower...

But because X-Wings have to be on the covers, we keep getting new models. But we have E-Wings for space superiority, K-Wings for bombing... yet we keep getting Y-Wings, B-Wings, and A-Wings. And XWA has T-Wings, Starchasers, Skiprays...

Sad.

Because some folks have expressed interest in posting here again... and I have something to add. Disney is so keen to move fan-favorite "Rogue One" that, when you have a digital download, the code for which comes with a BluRay purchase, you can enjoy your favorite shooty OT prequel at your PC or mobile device in glorious...

...480p.

Wow. That's just insulting.

Eh, it's good enough to frame-by-frame (use , and . for YouTube) the Star Destroyer scenes. Some fun notes:

Aft Triple: 0, 41, 76(35)
Mid Triple: 31, 76 (45)
Fore Triple: 48,

Fore Twin: 21, 25, 29, 45, 49, 53, 63,

Fore Triple: 0, 35
Mid Triple: 38,
Aft Triple: 1

Fore Triple:11?,
Mid Triple:
Aft Triple: 0, 11, 18, 29, 36,
Starboard Quad:

DEVASTATOR: 0 (starlike), 2 (growing, still indistinct), 4 (a ship, class unknown), 5 (clearly ISD, appx. size of Y-Wing near camera), 6 (clearly resolved), 8 (now the size of large gunship-style transport), 9 (almost fully reverted), 10 (final reversion begins), 13 (fully decanted, now ~9 times across compared to transport)

Quad TL
---------------------
2, 6, 14, 31, 38, 42, 48, 51, 61 (vert double), (


Fore Triple:
Mid Triple: 0 ,
Aft Triple: 0,

Port Hangar: 64,
Starboard Hangar: 19, 24, 35, 56,

What does this mean? Well, the axial guns on an ISD-I (at least in two scenes) shoot have a paltry firing rate of 35 frames per shot, or a bit better than 41 rounds per minute. Now, in naval gunnery terms, that's not bad at all for a small/medium caliber cannon. Exemplary, actually, and often only possible with autoloading.

Except... the big, hulking heavy twin turbolasers fire a salvo every 10-16 frames... and each of those salvos consists of a three-round-per-gun burst at four frames per shot. Or, burst rate of 360 rounds per minute, with an overall of 205 rounds per minute. There are naval antiaircraft cannons from WW2 that don't fire that fast.

And those big quad heavy turbolasers on the flank? Well, on the TF Battleship, they fire 60 rounds per minute per gun; once per second. On the ISD-I, 240 rpm. Averaging them all out (because differentiating which cannon is which is kinda hard, but the first two shots definitely come from the same barrel) gives about 195 rounds per minute. Per gun.


Yes, I am the only one who cares about these details. Me and the animators, because in some of the scenes, there is a definitely an attention to detail. But the Devastator attack just kinda... mangles everything. Which I suppose is poetic.
