    Seems to match up with the ship in the concept art.

    And likely the ship we see crashed on the tropical battle set.

    By the looks of it from the front and back view, and the large body underneath it's not so much a "starfighter" but likely more a troop-transport as per the concept art.

    The cockpit windows also remind of the windows of the ship we Jyn in in the trailer.

    The cockpit window above?

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe at the window(?) bellow in what appears to be the troop transport area?
    Which also seems to match the angle/tilt of what shes leaning on.

    Don't know if it's a gimmick for the toy, or legit featureof the Rebel Troop-Transport ship (aka "U-Wing"), but the engines seem to split apart X-Wing style, and the long "wings" may retract and extend?

    Love the Yavin set!
    Getting to see more of it is like a dream.
    Like the cameras on the original ANH set suddenly turned in a new direction, and there's just so much more, so beautiful!

    Bottom left one reminds me of the Republic Gunship from AOTC.

    I'm not crazy about the Uwings, but they'll probably look better on screen.

    I know some were pretty on the fence about this thing, along with the fact it never shows up in the OT. [BLACKOUT] It is basically a troop transport. Not sure why Cassian chooses to take it early in the film, but it does get loaded eventually. Also, we see it used to drop off reinforcements later in the film as a member of Blue Squadron, and it gets destroyed. Whether this is the last U-Wing, no idea. However, being mostly used as a dropship easily explains why these weren't included in the Death Star trench attack. [/BLACKOUT]
