The U-wing is a new Rebel starship in Rogue One, and it seems as if it’s made up of pieces of other familiar Star Wars ships. According to EW, the cockpit is similar to one from the Y-wing bombers, the engines are from an X-wing, and the front-facing pronged wings are “reminiscent of the Jedi Interceptor from the Star Wars prequels.”

I think the U-Wing is probably one of my favorite new Star Wars ships, and even though we didn’t see them in the Original Trilogy, maybe Rian Johnson can find a way to work them into Star Wars: Episode VIII.
