The 'SWING WING' rebel fighter (Star Wars expanded universe)
Star Wars rebel SWING WING Starfighter (expanded universe)
About this creation
The SWING WING, like most other rebel craft has two modes.
A passive flight / landing mode and an attack mode.
The SWING WING is unique due to the strange configuration of the single multi-vector 'wing'.
In truth, the SWING WING has more in common with the B-WING starfighter than any other.
The main weapons pod is situated at the far end of the starboard stancheon and is interchangable for mission specific tasks. Current armament is a quad turbolaser and three seismic charge launchers.

In a planets atmosphere, the 'wing' folds flat against the ship's fusilage to adopt a gliding ability, altered and guided by atmospheric thrusters but when in space, the SWING WING deploys is main wing and the smaller stabilizing wing (attached to the weapons pod) bringing the assortment of concealed armamentss to bear.

On useful adaptation of the SWING WING is that the surface of the main wing is covered with energy absorbing ablative plating which means that a SWING WING can come to the aid of a distressed vessel and act as a defensive shield while escorting it to safety.

This is version 1 of the SWING WING ans a second, more advanced model is under construction which, parts allowing will be SNOT.
