Dragonfly interceptor by AltugBulca Dragonfly interceptor by AltugBulca
This is a new fighter I designed for my Star Wars RPG. It is manufactured by Slayn&Korpil (The guys who designed Bwing with Adm. Ackbar). Since designers are Verpine & they are insectoid in nature I thought their newly designed interceptor should resemble one.
I also added swing wings for docking & quick deployment & storing advantages in mind also different wing positions are utilised in atmosphere for better maneuverability. The neck contains a rotating gyro for head guns in the tradition of creating a stable platform for the pilot while assisting in better accuracy (same principle was used in Bwing in much greater extent)
This is a post endor ship used in New republic navy

I really love this concept and I'm a big fan of Star Wars, I think this little ship would fit right into the universe and am planing to make it in to a 3D model using Maya. my version won't be exactly the same, in fact one of the biggest changes i'm thinking of doing is having both sets of wings sweep back rather than one forward and one back, I guess more like a damsel fly. Once it is finished will you allow me to upload it to the internet, of course giving you credit for the initial design?

Of course please be my guest. No design is 100%complete in my opinion. If it inspired you that is great go for it. Just credit me as inspiration like you mentioned and be sure to notify me when you finish so I can admire yours. Take care

I love this design!
I found this looking for some more inspiration as to when I design my own ship.
I already had the idea for it being like a giant manta ray.

But my ship isn't for Star Wars[Although it could be modified to fit star wars. lol] but for my upcoming Green Lantern OC.

*Fun Fact: Did you know, to native americans, the Dragonfly represents great change is coming.

Thanks for the Fun fact and kind comments. I love Green Lantern especially outer space adventures. (That's why GL Corps was my favourite book back in 2008)

Glad I could be of any asistance in inspiration department.That is the hard thing to do for an artist

you are wellcome. For the record when you use these ships be sure to use them in numbers to use tacticle advantage of the sp ability "hive mind" Also A major weakness for these babies are their dependency on a base ship. Without it their coordination is way off & their sensors are far shorter in range than any fighter on their own.

Among your ship designs I think I like this one most. Simple, efficient, well thought and executed. I (obviously) don't know the starwars universe and concept as well as you do, but I am sure that this small gem would fit right in. Congrats!

That seems to be how starship design in the Star Wars continuum works, so I thought it was quite an appropriate concept you had there.

Thanks, next step is deigning a hyperspace ring that can deploy them to battlefield in close wing state & release them upon exiting hyperspace.

I really like the B-wing but always thought it too bulky to be an effective fighter so this design is my solution to my own dilemma :)
