Thread: rebels and there ships

  1. #1

    Default rebels and there ships

    we all know about the alphabet ships the rebels used during the rebellion (x,y,b,and a wing) but what other kinds of fighters did they use?

    Z-95s, airspeeders (T47s), basically anything they could get their hands on.

    The alphabet named ships (Y-Wing excepted) are generally ones designed and produced by the Alliance, hence their predominance. But, like Coldskier said, they'd use pretty much anything they could get their hands on. The X-Wing games are a good source for these ships - Z-95 headhunters, R-41 Starchasers, Cloakshape fighters are probably the most common, but supafighters, planetary fighters, razor fighters and numerous others would also have bern used. Particularly once Imperials started defecting, the Alliance used some TIEs. In the NR era they're quite common as Star Destroyers often defected with their entire wing, but in the Rebellion era they don't seem to be used much.

    Acctually the T-65a was designed by the Incom corp, who also produced the prototypes. the design team stole the prototypes and designs and defected to the Rebellion when the Empire decided to "Nationalize" Incom. So it was not designed by the Rebellion, they just got to take advantage of one of the best designs of their era.

    You could always throw in Daggers, Morningstars and Dianogas from the Starfighter games...and a shedload of ships from the PC games (X-wing alliance et al)...

    I would personally find it within reason to make the claim that any starfighter in existence would/could have made it into Alliance hands. As a resistance movement, I doubt the Rebels were really picky concerning their weapons of war.

    If you can think of a ship, then you can probably bet that there's a chance that a few of its type can be found in Alliance hands, particularly early on in the Galactic Civil War.

    Not to mention a sizable arrangement of mutt "Ugly" designs hashed from whatever could be thrown together that reasonably worked, ranging from starfighters to the infamous "Assault Frigate".

    IIRC Ackbar's Flagship, Home One, was originally intended to be a Luxury Liner.

    Also, if youre talking late war, dont forget two of my personal faves, the E-Wing and the V-wing (i know they're in with the ABX and Y wings, but they are ships from a different era).

    The E-, V-, & K-Wings are NR designs built to complement or replace the aging X-, Y-, possibly even A-, & B-Wing designs.

    I don't have much info on the V-Wing, but the depictions during the Yevethan Crisis are that E-Wing is relatively new, and the K-Wing has its combat debut, having only recently been fielded as a Production Fighter/Bomber.

    The E-Wing, iirc, is first seen in the Dark Empire series and was introduced just after the Thrawn crisis. The V-Wing is deployed at the Battle of Calamari, in Dark Empire, and I think this is the vehicle's first use.
    As far as I know the K-Wing isn't mentioned anywhere but the Black Fleet Crisis. Rationalising the obvious fact the authors either didn't like it or forgot about it, it was probably only produced for the new fifth(?) fleet. Presumably after successful initial deployment some problem emerged leading to the ship falling out of favour.

    The alliance also, conceivably uses a mixture of uglies as well. Such as the X-TIE

    However ultimately Nova Spice would be correct. Any ship they could get their hands on would be inducted into the fleet. Any uglies, normal starfighters, capital ships, pirate ships; they all make it in. You even see Imperial capital ships in the fleet, it's a bet that there are Imperial fighters on their side or some ships are beefed up with Imperial systems put in.

    Some manufacturers, such as Incom, did make supplies solely for the rebellion purpose. Droids, systems, ships, weapons, food....you name it, they had it. They either stole it, bought it, or it was donated.

    They also accepted pirates, mercenaries, and smugglers into the ranks. We see Han Solo as a rebel, as well as Lando Calrissian. Not everyone was a true rebel, they all had their reasons for helping.
