i wanted to bring this artist to light, his star ships are very nice in my opinion and i for one would love to see them brought here. I lack the skills to make these from scratch but i hope others here might make a try.

The ships and fighters can be seen through out the comic. The Stealth X8 is the best version of the stealth X-wing i have seen yet. The war Corvette and the tramp freighter have also found a place in my heart.


Here is a page with some good shots of the stealth X8.

Here is the war corvette and the tramp freighter.

And there is more, The scout A-wing looked awesome and so do the regular X-wings.

Almost certainly an R-9 I'd say.

Looks like an R2 unit to me. That stealth X-Wing looks rather weird, like and Ugly made out of X-Wings and TIE Interceptors.

uglies.....

whoever coined the term was being polite, in my opinion. uglies are little more than flying bombs/deathtraps fit only for use as live fire targets.

thus, ends my little mini rant.....

that's either an R2, R6, or an R9.

R9 makes the most sense as they're the droids normally used in Stealth-X's, at least by the Jedi.

What annoys me is that they hang the X-wing name on it when clearly it's no longer an X-wing but a completely different ship, come on writers be original and just call it something, it still looks cool!

Hell the wings don't even split any more to form an X, at best it'll look like an H with the vertical bars (wings) now canting in, that's is not an X now is it.....

Looks like quad laser, paired ion cannons and probably torp/missile tubes too, so more weapons than a Y-wing and stealthy, no mention of agility or speed but I bet they've made em superior to the old X-wing and near/better than an A-wing, wow technological advancement or what, what will they do next.

On a side not I like the look of that corvette, and yes the stealth looks cool too, but I'm a purest, give me a standard X-wing any day.

well in the comic its stated that this stealth X is the most powerful and advanced fighter, it has the typical 4 engines like many of the other X-wings but on the strike foils, and they are strike foils, there is ion engines.

Image
Ummm not the Stealth X8 but here is the the Jedi Battle Carrier that hauls them around. At least you can see some stealth X8s with their strike foils down. And a new type of Fire spray that has been modified.

Image
another shot of the freighter.

Image
Reg X-wings... not sure if those are guns on the nose or not.

Image
the recon A-wing...

LOL i was getting mad at my self for not being able to find the page that explains the stealth X but i already have it up.

So the Stealth X8 has 8 engines... why?

I must be honest, sounds like a fanboi product to me.

All the ships in the last image look like normal X-wings, seen from bow or stern on, what's all that about.

This is a fan project, the actual stealth x is VERY smiler to the classic x-wing. btw, did anyone else notice that the red robot speaking in the second one above was eva (the white robot) from wall-e?

well the way i see it is the 4 sub light engines were designed for speed and the ion engines are used for maneuvering.

Last time I checked it had four engines, not eight. I can only assume your mistaking the wingtip laser cannons for engines.

it says in the first picture what the stealths have... I'm not a newb, to mistake iconic looking X-wing cannons for engines is... just wow. O_o...

ImageThere are the ion engines...
