They arent normal turbines, since jet mechanics dont work in space and we dont even know how X Wings work.

>implying it's not a trade-off between maneuverability and superior firepower.

X-Wings always had an edge over TIEs in every area bar maneuverability. TIE/sf (the Finn and Poe break out with) are obviously an attempt to counter X-Wings. Regular TIEs were designed to be mass produced and overwhelm opponents.

Only regular ties, Interceptors and X-wings are much more evenly matched, sometimes usually in interceptors favor.

Good thing FO totally forgot about those and went back to regular tie fighters, with a few special forces ties having a backseat gunner though!
>>
A-wing = Y-wing > X-wing > B-wing

debate me
>>
>>64617924
it's a legit tactic. the pilot performing the maneuver throttles back and tails behind the others in the flight group. this assures he is the first one shot while the others carry out the mission.
>>
>>64620759
Y-Wings are outdated shit, the other three excel at their individual roles.

E-Wing and K-Wing are better still.

Why does tech design in Star Wars go from sleek to boxy and jagged to sleek again? They should have made everything in the prequels look like a big clunky version of the OT tech, comparable to computers now vs. how computers were in the 90s. Guess it does kind of make sense with the Republic becoming the Empire.
>>
>>64619001
To collect interstellar hydrogen and other gasses if necessary, like a Bussard Ramjet.

Or, maybe, genres don't exist. And what you're thinking of are more like themes, and a film may contain many themes.

Dude, not him, but no. The nig monoliths are space fantasy-tier. Besides, everyone knows (even back then) that animals use tools all the time. That doesn't make humans specials. Even fucking birds use branches that they "sculpt" to get larva and shit.

>>64621301

>>64617596
It's not a jet. It has no turbines. They're ion engines, and those are the intakes.

>>64619001

ion = ionized particles = physical matter that's been ionized. The front of the engines colelcts what matter it can in atmospheres and uses it for propusion both in atmospheres and in space
>>
The part you should be criticizing is the way it has no thrusters for steering, and how it maneuvers in space like a fighter plane does within atmosphere, which is impossible.

It doesn't, if it did it would be a real time machine.
hard science fiction is still fiction, not a manual on how to build a space ship.
