So, 2019 has just begun and the guys are already hard at work to make this a great year for the XWAU. To start the year we are proud to present the update of the incredible XWAUP Assault Gunboat by Matt. Below are the details of the upgraded craft:
  • The meshes of the five wings and of the laser cannons have been reworked by DTM to introduce S-Foils, and to give to this imperial fighter a more agressive and powerful aspect.
  • All external textures have been repainted in HD by DTM, following the old lines designed by the original author. Some small details have been added by DTM, thanks to the HD features.
  • The textures of the wings are new by DTM, introducing a new art of Flightgroup colours.
  • Landing gears have been added by DTM. They work thanks to Jeremy's S-Foil hook function.
  • The model has been re-opted by DTM
  • New installer by Darksaber
And here are some screenshots to get you started:

That looks so AWESOME! :shock:

I especially love the folding wings! It makes a lot of sense and really makes it a closer relative to the lambada shuttle. 8)

I like the updated textures: they give this fighter that grey-deadly look it deserves.

S-Foils? Nice!

I'm always mindblown by what you guys do to improve upon these models. :D

Is anyone else having trouble downloading this new upgrade? The link directs me to the v2.1 installation from 2015, not the v3 installer released today.

I'm afraid it has probably not been uploaded yet.
In the meantime screenshots are a little taste...

That, looks f---ing sweet.

For a comparison on the s-foils: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:GUNhanger.jpg I always thought that one looked a bit too box-y, too parallel. Great job!

Nice job, ual002. Your Gunboat is well proportionate.
I've never liked the Star Wing Gunboat model from X-Wing miniatures game: the bow is too short and the cockpit is horrible.

Quadanium steel armored hull. This new model renders the idea pretty well.
