U-Wing Advanced by Colourbrand U-Wing Advanced by Colourbrand
This is a more advanced version of the now famed UT-60D U-Wing 'Fighter' and Gunship.

I liked many aspects of the design, but there are some elements I was not won over with; so, riding on the success of Rogue One, and the liking of my Futuristic X-Wing (the T-89 X-Wing Ultra) I decided to come up with an advance on the concept.

The UT-88A U-Wing Advanced.

I made the large wingspan a lot more modest, made the ship carry proton torpedoes too, and other such elements. It still does the party piece of variable geometry.

I was going to add winglets on this, and blue livery, but this worked, and makes a U-Wing a U-Wing.

Comments, and feedback, most welcome :)

Enjoy ;)

 What can I say, other than...well, I added it to my collection? That says enough!

 Is it Rebels-era, or did they continue using it up until the Battle of Endor?

Rogue one is awesome, a risk they took which paid off. Would love to see more of these in sky based fire fights from you. or maybe even ground fire fights. That last act was insane. :happybounce:

This thing looks like it jumped right out of Macross or Robotech.

Neat design though.

Kind of looks like something from Robotech and also is it a fighter bomber perhaps the speed of in a wing maybe in the fire power of a Wyoming with the balance defense of an X-Wing

Man, I'm really digging your redesigns of ships from the latest movies! This particular one cleaned up the issue I had with the U-Wing: the length of the swing-wings. I'm eager to see more of these!

Thank you sir - I think sci-fi now should impose a common sense rule rather than outlandish for outlandish sake :)

As for seeing more of her...who knows? There are always possibilities :D

An interesting take on the design. I like how the weapons are in the prow, giving it concentrated fire power. The side-by-side pilots arrangement makes it unique, too, among fighters. :) (Smile)
