    when they get to the Q-wing starfighter, i am gonna throw myself out the window.

    the y-wing i can understand looks like a Y. the x-wing i can understand looks like an X. the a-wing stretches believability not very A shaped. the e-wing was right out anything with a long body and a pair of wings could essentially be an E-wing. the b-wing while cool doesn't look like a B to me. i have never seen a k-wing, though the thought is something akin to the ridiculous that springs to mind.

    i mean honestly, would you be very afraid if they called the star destroyer (big blatantly cool name) the doorstop (its profile kind of resembles one)?

    with multiple TIE fighters, i can understand. improving the original design and classifying a modification to reflect a specialized purpose (TIE BOMBER and TIE INTERCEPTOR ).

    if i recall correctly there are four different versions of Star Destoyer (err, i mean Doorstop-shaped spaceship) that being the two victory-class (republic built) and the two imperial-class (empire built)

    i apologize in advance for the sarcasm that seems to be dripping from this post

    1. Five or six types. Ground Attack, Fire Control, Line, Recon, Bomber

    2. Four or five. X, Y, A, B (per the movies) and E, K, H and T (I think) via the comics/books.

    3. A couple. Imperial, Imperial II, Victory, Victory II. That's about it.

    4. Well, this is difficult. There are probably only one type of cruiser, but due to the unique way the Mon Cals make their ships, every single ship is different. So, essentially, there's only one type, but each ship is different in some way.

    Those are my thoughts.

    I entirely agree about the Q-Wing.

    Here's a picture of a K-Wing I found of IDN.

    While letters of the alphabet may have been assigned to the starfighters early on like the Y-wing and X-wings based their similar shapes, I don't know that that analogy was ever ment to be binding. Obviously there was a correlation in the real world, but in the SW Universe, I always figured it was coincidental that they resembled their names, hence it's no surprise that other designs didn't.

    Mon Cal Cruisers, well they're all supposed to be relatively uniqu, so I can buy that, and Star Destroyers I can kind of buy into there being some more specialized variations for specific tasks. The one that cracks me up, although being a very nice design, is the Eclipse from comics. That was just a bit silly.

    The one that really stretches it for me personally though is the Ties. I can buy the types invented for the movies, but all the crazy variations in the EU; Defenders, Avengers, Scouts and my personal favourite- the Tie Tank just seem gimmicky to me. That's what I voted for anyhow.

    I've never heard of an H-Wing. There is a T-Wing. How, do I know, because I've flown against them in TIE Fighter.

    What about Super, Eclipse, and probably some kookier Eu ones.

    On the Mon cal's, you have the standard MC80, the MC82 (medical version), MC84a (troop carrier), MC85 defender, MC90 (the one that ackbar used in the dark empire), i think there was also a MC92 and MC95, but don't quote me on that.

    Sorry, I did't think anybody would get that extensive. But one or two questions still remain.

    H-Wing: H-Wing Strike Fighter

    Bakura Star Destroyer: This warship was developed by the Bakuranian Military some time after the defeat of the Ssi-Ruuk (Truce At Bakura). They engineers used power plants of Imperial MK II Star Destroyers but the rest of the ship was unique. The were 850 meters long and were equipped with hyperwave sustainers (allows travel in an interdiction field) besides its normal weaponry.
    RPG Stats can be found in Cracken's Threat Dossier (CTD).

    Default I might be wrong....

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a Defender class Star Destroyer? It was in the Starships of the Galaxy Source book, I belive. Is it covered under one of the other classes listed? Please tell me if I'm wrong on this, and if I am, I'm sorry to waste your time.
