    I believe Palpatine Sith Troopers will be Rey Clones without the Force.

    Cool! This treadspeeder you can spot in the very first teaser trailer in that chase. I wonder, what reason there would be to have a vehicle driving on treads in times of repulsorlift technique.

    trailer_chase_01.jpg

    That guys is followed by two regular jet troopers.

    trailer_chase_02.jpg

    Now I wonder where the newly revealed Sith Jet trooper will fit in. How many jet/air action will we see?

    trailer_chase_04.jpg

    Fascinating for me is the special helmet feature in the nose section, with mimics the mandibles of a spider or insect head.

    trailer_chase_03.jpg

    It seems that the Mandalorian art of warfare still has a big impact on how things are done with individual, armored troopers.

    Great question, but I'm afraid the answer is: "because it is different and looks cool, and SW doesn't care about physics or science" ;)

    Seriously, why would anyone ever construct giant stiltleg-tanks? ESPECIALLY in a world where repulsorlift tech actually exists. Lol!

    SW is pretty cool-looking and exciting, though :D

    Why in the world is there a snowmobile/tread vehicle in a Star Wars movie where coffins hovered 50+ years prior to the events of this film?

    Here we go - that Resistance fleet really is impressive! And it’s going full retro. So it should have been ‘Old vehicles’…

    The Ghost is on the front line! And next to it, a U-Wing (lower left).
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_01.jpg


    To the right, looking like a Hammer Head Corvette, and in front of it, in the lower right, a Wookie Gunship (formerly only seen as animated version). And in the lower left, something not unlike a Corellian Free Virgillia-class Bunkerbuster as seen in Episode 8 (The Ninka), but with much more front armor platings. And hanging heavy in the background, a Mon Calamari Cruiser resembling the ‘Profundity’ from the late Admiral Raddus, possibly the ‘Raddus’, the flagship of the resitance’s fleet.
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_02.jpg


    Lower left: A Resistance Bomber (as in Ep. 8), and more Calamari Cruise in the background.
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_03.jpg


    Behind the Ghost, a Nebulon-class Frigate in it’s full glory.
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_04.jpg


    From the Clone Wars era: A Pelta-class frigate, build by Kuat drive yards (although clearly looking Corellian to me).
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_05.jpg


    And more Wookie Gunships.
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_06.jpg


    Zorii Bliss’s very oldschool looking Y-Wing single-handedly taking on…
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_07.jpg



    … the planet busting giant cannons that those classic Imperial Star Destroyers were fitted with.
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_08.jpg


    I guess these cannons can be found on more than one ISD. Also nice to see, those TIE Daggers and the beloved B-Wings.
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_09.jpg

    @Rieekan, @Lock_S_Foils and all you other Starship enthusiast out there, what are your findings?

    Someone in the other thread spotted also the outrider, at least it looks like the outrider.

    I really tried hard to spot any YT-2400 Corellian freighter / the Outrider, but I failed. Do you know where it should be @Messi?


    @Travcon: According to the Lego Set you can already buy, it IS the y-wing from Zorii Bliss. With that gunner station on top, it really looks like the 70’s concept/Clone Wars 2-seater version.

    I really like how they are breaking the ice here.
    icebreaker.jpg
    I never knew that those Star Destroyers were able to act underwater. Maybe a bit over the top?


    And besides that B-Wing, we have some incoming A-Wings to the left of it.
    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_10.jpg


    Actually, it might not classify as a vehicle, but it looks like old Palp has kind of a walking chair here, seemingly moving towards Rey. With all the lights and tubes, it even might have some medical relevance, frail legs, hm?

    @Star Dude... looks a lot like the Eravana which Solo and Chewie arrived on in TFA on centre left of this pic?

    @Smullie_1138 spotted it!

    I think its the outrider. Not sure of course. We have no confirmation.

    It wouldn't surprise me... given that this is the final bow of the saga, I'd bet JJ has thrown just about every sight gag and easter egg he could at scenes like this!

    Agree. We already have the medal in Yavin IV and the battle droid in the scene with c3p0.

    I sure hope one of them is the Outrider, though those ships just being YT-2400's would be cool, too. I'm still hoping to one day see an official Lego set, especially after seeing one in Rebels.

    By the way, I never realized that the Outrider really became cannon. I just knew of the ‘Sato’s Hammer’, as seen in Rebels, also a YT-2400 modified light freighter.

    I guess this one could be such a ship:
    YT-2400 Outrider.jpg


    However, with that low image quality, it could also be a different Corellian modell.


    Here’s the ‘Rebels’ version for comparison.

    I think you’re 100% correct on this.

    RiseOfSkywalker_Fleet_11.jpg



    Guys, what do you think will be the destructive magnitude of those huge ventral cannons that quite a number of Star Destroyer now possess? Note that they have sacrificed the whole hanger bay area for this! Judging on the redish look and feel, I would say it’s old SITH technology used here.

    ISD_cannon_01.jpg


    Knowing an ISD to be just over 1.6 km long, those guns are about 335 m long according to my Photoshop ruler! It seems that Palpatine couldn’t let go this “size does matter" thing.

    ISD_cannon_02.jpg


    So what object is blown to smithereens here by that ISD, a big ship or even a complete planet? Are those Star Destroyers now living up to their name?

    ISD_cannon_03.jpg


    If we got more Starkiller weapons here, what does this mean for a totally mobile fleet of hundreds (?) of Sith Star Destroyers?

    okay eagle eyed people: this ain't Chewie in the copilot's seat; who's flying the Falcon here? : o O

    Screen Shot 2019-10-22 at 6.55.47 PM.png
    also, in case there was any doubt, it's Rey flying the skimmer toward the Death Star wreckage:

    If it's not Chewie, it's someone very fuzzy.
