That's a cool vehicle. Cool

Is the body strength of 2D intentional? Seems a bit light for a craft that can carry 20 tons and transport 20 troops.

Thought so too when I saw the image.

It was intentional, but you make a good point, a vehicle that can carry 20 troops or 20 metric tons, should have a higher hull strength. Not sure about the metric tonnage though. Perhaps that should be brought down to 5 metric tons. Gonna bump the hull up to 3D.

Why not consult the Wook for any specifics first?

I agree that consulting Wookieepedia should be a given, but in this case there isn't much there.

I did use wookieepedia and there isn't much information about the ship. It only appears in a few panels in the Pizzazz Star wars serial which also appeared in the UK's Star Wars Weekly.

That ship image reminds me of the viper from the original (and best) Battle Star Galactica
