The Resistance owes a lot to the old Rebel Alliance, and uses a lot of their same ships. But not all of them have appeared on screen, which causes intrepid Star Wars fans to ask: whereâ€™s the B-Wing?
And, of course, intrepid content creators are here to answer. EC Henry (whose videos I like) has a lot of fun mocking up designs for Star Wars vehicles that arenâ€™t in the films, and this B-Wing is especially good, iterating on the little hints given in the official canon and adding in speculation about the bomberâ€™s history, its role, and even how the politics of the New Republic might have shaped it.
What he comes up with is a powerful, neat-looking bomber that absolutely wouldnâ€™t look out of place on the big screen. Now to pit it against a Star Destroyer.
