Thanks to the latest episode of The Star Wars Show, we’ve got a look at the newest ship from the galaxy far, far away, with the video showcasing the U-Wing fighter from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
“The U-Wing is a new ship in the Star Wars universe,” states Matt Martin, Creative Executive of the Lucasfilm Story Group. “It’s a troop transport and gunship. So it’s there to bring in rebel troops to heavy fire zones and get out as quickly as possible…The wings move depending on the situation and it’s there to both drop off troops and provide air support.”
