The Fang fighter was a model of starfighter flown by the Mandalorian Protectors. this class of fighter was limited in production but flawless in design. while first seeing service in the clone wars with the skull squadron fighting alongside the republic. for a limited period. the mandalorian's quickly took a liking to this rare star fighter.

An intimidating ship tailor-made for combat, equipped with pivot wings this provided a vector thrust control.

Thanks to that feature, Fang fighters could make turns of which few other ships were capable. Each Fang fighter had a hidden proton torpedo port in its belly, and wing-mounted laser cannons. Given the unusual nature of such ships, Fenn Rau the Leader of the Mandalorian Protectors personally trained all Fang pilots under his leadership.

I love these fighters, I would love to use this as a base to figure out the paint job for a character I have, if i'm allowed.

Mandalorian Protectors? Are these the Mandalorians who allied themselves with the rebellion? Wookiepedia says in the article about the rebellion (the events of SW:Rebels) that it includes the Protectors as members.

yep, they were a mandalorian merc group they saw action in the republic war. and hten with the rebels. also these ships are also aparently republic era ships 
AnowiShipyards's avatar
yep.. they joined the rebles,  they however are clans, so im guesing each clan might have their own fighter and way of thinking. i think they could do so much cool stuff with that type of law the protectors are the only clan to have these fighters and these are also from the clone wars era. acording to comic's

No, they all use the same fighters, weapons and armour, just with differing features.
AnowiShipyards's avatar
that depends. vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/s… since these are also classed as fighters. "like a U-wing i guess" 
Anzac-A1's avatar
So? I don't see how bringing up the U-Wing is relevant. The Fang Fighter was actually developed from the Kom'rk-class fighter/transport, in order to get a proper fighter.

but these specific fang fighters are his own design and he basically had to teach mandalorien pilots to use these specifically becuase of their thrust vectoring capabilty. honestly though i would like to know if these are all the same, we haven't seen evidence of it yet though

AnowiShipyards's avatar
thankyou, i will soon be leading to short stories. :) basically i have been developing the ships that are in the stories at the present moment

Just an FYI if you look closely you will notice the Rebels SD is different from the Movies mainly with the Tower being taller.
AnowiShipyards's avatar
its based on ralph mcquarrie concept art pretty much an entire different ship altogether.
i was thinking of perhaps converting one of my own imp classes to it might be interesting
