Is that a V-Wing?

Looks more like a heavily modified Actis.

I assume you have neither the means or the inclination to read the comic, so here you go...

Fighters, all in a perfect, tight line like that... yeah. Still stupid. Maybe FO pilots are dumb enough to pull something like that, but line-astern in such tight formation is just not happening unless they're all slaved together or something similarly dumb. There's a major reason fighters 'break' when entering combat, and Poe just demonstrated it.

What the fuck? Much too big. That cockpit is elongated, where the Actis was round. If it's roughly the same width (it has to be, otherwise they couldn't fit a pilot), then it's much longer, and it looks smaller compared to the ship than the cockpit on an Actis does. The ship is much bigger than an Actis, and much bulkier. If it's just a modified one, it'd be like modifying an X-wing into a Z-95. My guess, it's an earlier model. Eta-1, maybe. Or the product of a stupid artist. Given the rest of the comic, it's probably that one.

It was loaned to him by Grakkus the Hutt, which heavily implies that it was some sort of Jedi fighter.

Yeah, I guess that means it was a stupid artist. Sorry for blaming you.

For all we know, it could be some pre-ROTS relative of the Actis.

A more well defined, detailed, and articulated PoS is still a PoS.

I don't see it. Isn't there a better pic of the Resurgent?

Interesting! I wonder if it was always meant to be a detachable ship or if it was just another greeble on the Resurgent before it was retconned into a ship.

Stupid wookiepedia link - but yeah it looks sort of like a ship given the way it looks like there's some kind of launch rail.

No, an E-Wing is a starfighter not a cannon.

Friend, they're making fun of you for your shitty grammar. A simple Google turns up that it looks like the E-Wing is, in fact, canon, thanks to Poe Dameron #23, which may be the comic we're discussing. At least according to Reddit.

Thanks, talk to text sucks if you don't catch it in time.
I was wondering about that
