What kind of projectile do you picture the Broadsword artillery variant firing?

I look at the Broardsword variants and all I can see is the Armata series in SPACEEEEEEEEE. Not that that's a bad thing, clearly the Star Wars vehicles would serve similar roles that the contemporary vehicles would.

That just leaves a Broardsword derived engineering vehicle. Or would that be one of the landers outfitted for a recovery role to tranship wrecks and damaged hulls either to planet-side depots or in-orbit assault transports for repair.

Built the old-school XW bulk freighter, designed a container for it that works, and a modular attachment system for said container:

maybe in the same vein do a YT-1300 and it's cargopod.

i like the way they went with that. it explains so much, like why the YT had so little internal space but such a massive sublight engine.

the Falcon isn't a souped-up delivery truck, it's a souped-up tugboat.

Howlrunner, never seen it in anything other than the Essential Guide To Vehicles, but I liked the design.

Looks better than the visuals in either of Essential Guides to Vehicles. More of a Star Wars/ Imperial feel to the design.

Looks kinda like a Legends Howlrunner.

Love the Howlrunner. I believe you mentioned elsewhere you scaled it down a bit from 11.4m to fit its described niche as a replacement for TIEs in second-line units? Hard to tell from the comparison shot but it looks like it is meant to occupy about the same volume (albeit more horizontal than vertical)?

My version is only 6.94m long. In terms of storage volume, with wings folded, you can fit 4 of them in the same volume occupied by a single TIE/ln.

Will it match the ship shown in the new comics?

Why would the comic design that ripped me off get any precedence in my own work?
