Also, those airspeeders defending the rebel base during an evacuation from the white remote planet when thet get attacked by walkers are called Ski-Speeders.

Thank god nobody will compare them to the attack with Snowspeeders. Who would connect the words Ski and Snow.

Holy crap lol.

Also, does anyone else really hope they explain why white sand turns bright red when these go by?

That's easy to explain. The planet has a thin white layer over red mineral. The ski-speeders are just scratching that layer:

How on earth does that skid actually stabilize those ridiculous little craft instead of nose-diving them into the dirt? Wait, I'm applying physics again. Never mind.

The Raddus does look like a nice ship, and as a Mon Cal cruiser its design is totally reasonable. I also point out that's right around the original length of the Home One, before she was retconned down in size (unlike Executor).

Agree. Having two ships both about 3 km long would work pretty well as Epic ships for Armada. Not saying that i want them that much, well... because sequel era, but i think its more likely than a SSD. Although i would like to see the Mon Cal Viscout-Class Star Defender as an SSD equivalent!

Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised now that they release the Raddus and the Resurgent together.

That would be a good release. I can see them still being large ships. The sliding scale comes in handy dealing with these increasingly silly proportions.
