But is the dialogue accurate? More importantly, where is such dialogue?
The dialogue is in many different books from various PoV's.
And on what side?
On the LOTF era galaxy side.
But are such reconfigurations needed because of combat-affecting differences? Hell, if a design just looks different from the previous one you may need to reconfigure quite a few machines, even if there is almost no functional change. This is true in RL, an example would be how some keyboards have rounded edges and curved bodies whilst others have sharp edges and flat bodies. They both do the same fucking thing, but for a factory that used to make the more rectangular kinds it would have to get new molds for the plastic parts for each machine and new manipulators on the machines which assemble the keyboards to be able to assemble the rounded kinds.
So for all I know, they made the E-11 lighter and more ergonomic, or expanded its clip size and the area where the clip goes to match.
All of the things you mentioned actually do matter in a war.
Old or outdated? And is the dialogue which you draw your statement from supported by the rest of the piece? I want quotes here.
Generally they say outdated. Quote from Caedus: "Ancient hardware. They're getting desperate."
Because the Aing-Tii are the most neutral force ever presented in SW, so they are unlikely to help at all in any conflict unless they are directly attacked, which even then they'll probably just try and fend it off. Heck, the SW wiki states that they only leave their territory to attack slavers.
Maybe, although in the OP the LOTF era galaxy is united, I suppose that the Aing Tii would have little reason to intervene.
It is still very limited stealth when compared to true cloaking.
"true" cloaking? Stealth X's are among the most advanced cloaked starfighters in Star Wars.
Prove that they were not as competent (IIRC they only cloned Stormtroopers who were essentially the best of the best). Also, they are still clones nonetheless.
It's only one legion, and I highly doubt that the Empire found several people as skilled as Jango Fett in a few years. Also, the nanovirus used in LOTF: Invincible could absolutely devastate a cloned force.
I'll answer this tomorrow, when I have time to re-watch Episode V.
It's been a day.
Yep, which means that an imperial officer would not have much of a chance of doing any better.
1. I was talking about transports, nitwit.
2. You mean ignoring x-wings? Since normal x-wings are pretty much useless against an ISD, as is made obvious in the OT during the evacuation of Hoth.
2. Yet star destroyers would still often try and fire at them, and hit only at a very small rate.
The gunners on the star destroyers hit the stealth x's at a very small rate.
But can they do it so easily with standard Jedi?
Actually, they probably can.
I'm talking about computer tracking numb skull. Not gunners, and not at all related to my speculation about a completely different subject in the debate. And said speculation was being used as an example since you didn't present any solid data or quotes.
*sigh*. If tracking computers worked on stealth X's, why did star destroyers use gunners to combat them? Clearly their stealth systems and jamming devices can defeat targeting computers.
Very well then (I'm not going to ask how, despite that with the power levels of x-wings and fighters in general that waste heat has to go somewhere). They will still present a disruption on the visible light spectrum, although that would be harder to notice by a human crew.
So if star destroyers have a hard time hitting regular X wings, how are they going to consistently hit stealth x's piloted by Jedi?
If a gun is connected to the same computer which is detecting a craft using a VISUAL LIGHT distortion then jamming will do shit for the stealth x-wings, as jamming in SW has not been shown to affect the visible spectrum. All the program needs to do is feed the turret X,Y,Z, coordinate data and target velocity and tell it to open fire. And stealth x-wings have NO cloaking devices, they are incapable of rendering themselves cloaked to all sensors and light, they use passive systems which minimize what can detect them, but it doesn't make them outright disappear.
Except that the Jedi piloting the stealth x's will not fly in a predictable direction that a computer can track.
