Neat B-Wing model changes orientation.

Yeah, sorry… that was probably too minor of a quibble to be worth posting…

Personally, I hope they find a way to make the B-Wings "vertical" because that's how they flew in RotJ.

No need, I was just trying to be silly. :)

If I recall correctly the cockpit spinning was Kenner"s idea reusing mechanics from a former toyline that seems to have been absorded as cannon…

Well objects in space are subject to momentum still, it's just hard to tell you're actually moving as there is no other force such as gravity or friction to give you a relative point. Acceleration is from a force just as gravity causes force to be applied to an object. So when you turn or change speeds you would feel some G's from that, but going in a straight line at constant speed would feel like nothing.

True, momentum would hardly matter going in a straight line at a constant speed, but they're rarely going to be doing that in a battle if they want to stay alive. In a fight they're going to be changing speed and zig zagging (is there a 3 dimension version of zig zaging?) all over the place while trying to hit TIE's and avoid being hit themselves.

I seem to remember it was B for 'blade' as with it's S-foils open it resembles a dagger.

Acceleration would have an effect on pilots in space. Objects under acceleration behave as if under gravity (as I remember from my Physics of Star Trek).

 

All the background for the b-wing I've read says it kicks out some top grade firepower so I'm hoping that the rules reflect that being in front of a b-wing is the worst place to be!

Wait Physics may exist is Star Trek, but nothing so limiting exists in Star Wars.
