Over on the FFG x-wing mini's forums, we are discussing some of the "Epic" ships for the game, specifically the CRC-90 corellian corvette, and whether, like the Imperial's Gozanti class Carrier-cruiser, it should be able to carry some fighters.

Now in the novels (WRAITH SQUADRON), it was seen as 'revolutionary/outside of the box to retrofit that forward compartment of it's head', to act as a fighter bay to hold 8 x-wings. Yet in the SW rebels cartoon, (as shown in screen-caps), supposedly the rebellion has long did that, more for holding A-wings..

So which way do YOU See it?

I see it as being revolutionary and outside the box thinking for Imperials.

Revolutionary and outside the box thinking is par for the course for the Alliance.

But neither tactic was used BY the imperials. Both were examples of wht the rebels did.

Considering the relative dimensions of the two fighters, the TIEs are much "taller" than an A-Wing. Perhaps the ingenuity was in that they managed to fit TIE fighters into a ship despite the lack of vertical clearance. With an A-Wing, you could fit two or three in on top of eachother in the space it would take to hold just one TIE.
