What he modeled them off is fucking irrelevant. What we see on the fucking screen *is* relevant. Oh, wait I forgot. You're too fucking stupid to see any evidence that contradicts your bullshit.
Goodness me you do have poo in your head. What we see on the screens IS reworked ww2 footage, and whats so damn impressive about that?
We see lots of other things, too, you stupid dumbass. I love the way you ignore all of those things, even after they've been pointed out to you. What's the term? Selective memory? Yeah, that would describe you.
No, I'm saying just the opposite. I am only observing the fight scenes from the movies, and I must say those ww2 inspired dog fights were just not that impressive. You can't take this, so you dive into a book which adds some extra zeros to all the figures, just to calm your rattled nerves down.
In other words, you are DELIBERATELY IGNORING massive evidence which has been posted, and which utterly destroys your bullshit argument.
Some geek writing a book is likely to get it even more wrong than Lucas since he/she isn't visualy constructing the scene for a movie.
He's talking to people who ARE constructing scenes for the movie, and the ICS books have been used as references for later movies. Try again.
He said less then a minute to one minute...you have proof of a space worthy craft that does this from standing position to orbital and to breaking the pull of the planet in 60 seconds?
do you even have the slightest clue how long it can take for a rocket to clear the atmos? Seriously, its not as long as you think.
So? SW fighters achieve orbit in seconds. SW fighters can also round gas giants in the space of minutes. When was the last time you saw one of our spaceships do that?
It takes the shuttle almost 15 minutes to achieve low-Earth orbit. It takes SW ships seconds to do that. How long does it take a Colonial Viper?
Ok lets just ignore the shite performance of the ties that everyone was able to see for themselves on the movies. Yes, just ignore the visuals and lets just dive into that book with all those zeroes again and get those goosebumps going... silly man.
I love the way you ignore the fact that the Colonial Viper has never been seen achieving anywhere near the acceleration shown in the movies.
We do have vehicles that can clear the Earth's atmos is a few minutes, so this 1 minute Bull about the Falcon or whatever it was, is just feeble.
If that were a minimum estimate, it wouldn't show much. But it isn't, and we also have lots of other examples of starships doing things much faster.
Why didn't it clear in 4 seconds?
You mean like the Queen's starship did in TPM when it was fleeing Naboo?
Anyway, when the Falcon escaped Vader during the Hoth Fight scene Luke had plenty of time to watch it slowly ascend. Where was its shite acceleration there? Or was the Falcon just taking it easy and gaining altitude at its slowest possible speed during this hectic and close encounter?
was frickin' FALLING APART during that scene (for those of us who ignored the movie). Remember how the systems on the ship weren't even starting up properly? Remember how Leia sardonically offered to get out and push? Remember when Han had to land the ship in the asteroid belt to enact repairs since the ship wasn't running well?
