    This is one of the strangest Rebel fighters, the B-Wing. An interesting feature is that the cockpit rotates to keep the pilot in the same position regardless of how the rest of the fighter has rolled.

    There are two versions I did, one with the S-foil wings closed, and the other with the wings open and the fighter's hull swung down 90 degrees. Those are the two positions the ship is usually seen in during the movies and in the videogames.

    The polygon count is 1454. And I was able to make the unit fully support team colors.

    It uses the Stealth Bomber animations, so that's what you should point to in the XML.

    I've been everywhere, man
    Very cool, I always liked the B-Wing. You should really look at the documentation at the plugins page. It would be incredibly easy to animate this so that the S-foils changed position throughout the attack/idle/whatever you wanted.

    Yeah, I've been thinking about making my own animations for some of my units. I just haven't gotten around to actually sitting down and experimenting with it. :D

    Yes, I'm going to be working on that over the next few days. And I'll update the unit threads with them when I finish them all.
