    I was in the Original Trilogy section and I saw this thread about Favorite OT Starfighters. As someone who has always loved starfighters, I thought it would be fun to talk about the Prequel starfighters as well since there are plenty of cool designs.

    Before I talk about my favorite, here's are pictures of the poll choices in case you forgot.

    These are all the fighters actually seen in the Prequel Trilogy (The Clone Wars exclusive fighters took up more poll slots than I actually have, okay?).

    ~-~-~-~-~

    My personal favorite Prequel starfighter is the Eta-2.

    I absolutely love this fighter. In fact, it is my favorite starfighter in the entire series. It was a beautiful combination of the first Jedi Starfighter and the TIE Interceptor. It's wonderful.

    So, what's your favorite?

    EDIT: Wow, I screwed up and accidentally included the Eta-2 to the poll TWICE. I'm an idiot.

    Jedi Starfighter is my favorite. Great design and it shoots ass.

    In Battlefront II I like to pilot the Droid Tri-Fighter and the one Grievous had.

    I spend much time in the Belbullab-22 in Battlefront II (I can't remember what it is called in that game) as I loved played Mygeeto Space, flying into the enemy's hanger with a gunship, destroy their systems, hop into their bomber, and take out their surface systems. Great times.

    I'm a fan of the ARC-170. It's a bigger fighter and it holds three people. It seems like it would be fun to fly with some buddies.

    I chose the baboon fighter because it just looks stupidly fast when it's still .

    ARC-170's were pretty neat. They were a mixture of the Y-wing, and X-wing fighters. They had S-foils like X-wings, and could hold more than one person like Y-wings.

    As much as I liked them they seemed a tad bulky for my tastes...

    Yeah, for how bulky and big the 170's were they could barely take a hit. They had pretty heavy weaponry, and their jammers and scanners though were really powerful. Bit of a trade off. I liked the look of them, I don't really know too much about the other prequal ships.

    It's funny I always thought this one was a predecessor to the x wing

    They are.
    While I liked the 170 at the time, some of my enthusiasm for the design has waned. Mostly due to the fact I don't like the nose. And I feel that the s-foils on this were there simply to reference the X-Wing and they seem like they are just...there. I dunno, eye of the beholder.

    Someone told me a while ago that hear simply paid homage as you said and have barely a relation to the x-wing .

    "The ARC-170 also possessed an S-foil system, which helped to radiate heat, something that aided the fighter's shielding. This also provided additional stability during atmospheric flight" S-foils arent there to pay homage to the xwings they were on multple crafts including Xwings, Bwings, Jedi starfighters, ARC-170s, V wings. They are there to help in high tense situations.

    Does the Droid Gunship count? I ask because you didn't include it and it was a cool fighter type ship from ROTS.

    It's a type of airspeeder, so it doesn't count as a starfighter. In a way, it is similar to the LAAT/i (though unlike in Battlefront II, they can't carry troops).
    It is a cool design, though.

    I'm going with the Delta-7. Despite my issues and grievances with the PT, I really like the hyperspace ring, and the sleek design of the ship. It's pretty neat.

    N-1 Naboo Starfighter. It's romantic, yet has an adventure like vibe to it.

    Eta-2 for sure, but a close second is the Z-95 Headhunter. X-Wing vibes all throughout the design.

    I really like the Sith Infiltrator. Looked menacing and one of precursor to the TIE but larger.
