Finally have a decent build for the Yirt-class Interceptor minifig-scale. Kitbashed the Liberator fighter from the Old Republic with my TIE wings. Add a little bit here and there and presto.
I'm not entirely happy with the main fuselage, but it's close enough. It's suppose to point a little more. Either way, the basic idea is the Eternal Alliance engineers from the Empire and Republic joined together to create a fighter using what they brought from their origin governments. Thus the Yirt-class was born in the Interceptor role.
It utilized both technology from the Sith Interceptors and the many named Republic Interceptors, LEGO names Liberator, also named Nova Dive and a couple others. Also some ancient technology was built in that they had discovered. The team also built in a socket for an astromech, one of the first fighters to utilize this slot. However it did not take when the Alliance was no more and it took awhile for the galaxy to catch on again to the idea.
Included with the "set" are two Eternal Alliance troopers, made from the ranks of both Empire and Republic, they decided to make a single armor to create solidarity.
