as u guys already now cause of the title.
iam here suggesting the V-Wing as the one of the next ships for the pirates. like the x-wing was the backbone ship from the rebels the V-Wing fulfilled this role for the mandalorians, hutt cartel and many other syndikates.
the V-Wing is a clone wars ship yes and had the role of an Interceptor er like ship that carried bombs with it.
ive always played the V-Wing in Battlefront 2 and was quite skilled with him even in SW Galaxies so i think i know how i would make him cost and look like on the battlefield.
His stats should be exact like the x-wing 3/2/3/2 many will think now what ? really ? is this guy insane ?
Yes and YES !!!
the thing is the V wing had shielding and was pretty tanky, had OK agility.
to make this fighter feel different from the X-wing tough comes in play in terms of dial, action bar and the upgrade bar. well lets begin then.
to the dial. his dial should show that he was quite capable in dogfights as heavy fighter llike the wookiepedia tells us and my own experiences as pilot with it.
Speed 1 - He will have red 1 tiurns like the defender showing that he can du such a manouver but with high risks with losing action. his 1 forward and 1 banks should be green to shed the stress.
Speed 2 - 2 turns white, 2 banks white and 2 forward green.
Speed 3 - 3 turns white, 3 Banks white and the 3 forward green.
SO far his dial has 2 reds and 5 green manouvers.
Speed 4 - 4 Forward Red showing that even an old heavy fighter has its limits keeping up with the modern fighters.
Speed 5 - 5 K-turn like the tie bomber showing that it has even aspects of a bomber like ship.
with these the V-Wing has a total of 16 moves to chose from like the most with 3 reds and 5 greens in it
Now to the Action Bar
Focus, Target Lock and Boost
many will think why boost ? well the answer is simple heavy fighters do turn pretty well if u fly em at low speed so they can get better aim at thier prey. making him again a dangerous threat imagine one push the limit V-wing with boost and target lock chasing a Falcon that cant shake him of + getting out of the V-Wings arc.
to the Upgrade Bar.
It should have the missile upgrade slot, salvaged astromech slot and the bomb upgrade slot. no ilicit or system upgrade slots cause with the 3 upgrade bars u can customize the V-wing well enough.
the ship should start like the X-wing at a minimum cost of 21 up to 28 something. my predictions. it is the pirate like Tie-Advanced/X-wing fighter.
i came up with a title card aswell for those that want to use Torpedos instead of Missiles
the title card should be called V-Wing Ver.T ( version torpedo ) cost 0 points.
Change the Missile upgrade icon with the torpedo Icon. i chosed to make it a title card so that the V-wing still can benefit from modification cards like stealth device etc.
the colour of the should be the dark orange grey paint sheme. for later V-Wing aces u could use the blue/gray paint sheme to represent some mandalorian heroes.
i Hope u enjoyed reading this stuff and that we will see the V-wing in the near future with these stats and possibilities or something close to it. iam sure our designers will make a great job like they always did so far. ive watched/heard the interview and man like they said its not like they can bring a patch ver 3.456 to patch a ship ;P.
