Coming soon from our friends at Insight Editions is the latest Star Wars Haynes Owner’s Workshop Manual all about the iconic Rebel Starfighters. We previously shared some images from the book when we published the press release in September, Insight Editions have shared some new images today: –
After the Clone Wars, the Galactic Empire spared no expense to build a massive fleet of warships to enforce Imperial rule, intimidate defenseless worlds, and destroy all opposition. However, the Imperial Navy underestimated Rebel Alliance fighter pilots, who flew X-wing, Y-wing, A-wing, U-wing and B-wing starfighters, and whatever else they could obtain to fight their Imperial enemies. Decades later, Resistance pilots would fly next-generation versions of Rebel starfighters against the First Order.
STAR WARS: Rebel Starfighters: Owners’ Workshop Manual (Insight Editions; 11/12) presents a thorough history of the starfighters that served the Rebel Alliance and the Resistance. The history includes design origins, production, and modifications for each Rebel starfighter, and is fully illustrated with numerous photographs, schematics, exploded diagrams, and computergenerated artwork by Star Wars vehicle experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. Ryder Windham, author and co-author of more than 70 Star Wars books provides text.
This Haynes Manual, fully authorized and approved by Lucasfilm, is the most thorough technical guide to Rebel starfighters available.
