    Here's the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars. It is meant to be used as a naval unit, but might pass for an air unit as well. I tried to stick to the original ship as closely as I could, but I did make the top turret larger for civ scale. Enjoy.:)

    I think we had a conversion earlier, IIRC. But this is top quality stuff! Thanks ND!

    Thanks guys for the comments.

    @ Odin, I had a feeling that you could use this one.

    Words cannot be written to explain the greatness of this unit. Simply wonderful...or some other great word to describe greatness. Keep the Star Wars units coming, Must have more

    The escape pod is awesome!!!

    @ Spacer, Yes, blowing her up is a shame, especially since it never happened in the movies.

    @ sum aar jam, the escape pod is the one that R2 and C3PO used to escape at the beginning of Episode IV. I do have some more SW units planned.

    Brill.

    But I don't think the droids escaped the millenium falcon -wasn't it some other rebel ship carrying Princess Lea?
    So long ago since I saw that movie though.

    It was the Tantive IV.

    But the Falcon did have it's own escape pod.

    KA, yes, it was a different ship - a Corellian Corvette. I'm not sure what the Falcon's escapes pods look like, but I imagine they're fairly standard from one ship to the next, like liferafts.

    actually, according to the blueprints, the Falcon's escape pods are dome shaped.

    Three thrusters in the back, but it flies more like slave-1 with the pilot visible in the seat...

    that however is a tiny insignificant detail in what is a fraggin perfect unit...Im not trying to get technical, even if I am...

    Excellent unit... Now to figure out how to add it as an easter egg in the FF mod......
