Notability policyEdit

Wait, so under the notability policy, is this the correct way to do it? Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 22:29, May 17, 2014 (UTC)

Clone WarsEdit

Should information from The Clone Wars be on here? The Y-Wing's Databank entry makes no distinction between the two.AV-6R7User talk:AV-6R7 03:37, August 1, 2014 (UTC)

Change infobox image Edit

I propose we use the fully intact Y-wing as the infobox image. Although the stripped-down Alliance version is more recognizable and from the live-action film, the TCW version is how the fighter looked at production. - AV-6R7 (talk) 22:11, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

  • The general precedent is to use an image of the latest documented version of a subject. The OT image supersedes any images from TCW, and as you say, it's more recognizable. CC7567 (talk) 22:14, July 28, 2015 (UTC)
    • Okay, I though since it was a ship model and not an individual ship there were different rules. - AV-6R7 (talk) 22:18, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

Recent move Edit

I thought that the BTL-A4 was a specific model in the Y-wing line. Why move the entire article when it clearly encompasses the entire history of the product line, including the older 2-seat models? Shayn Mikel (talk) 05:59, December 17, 2016 (UTC)

  • According to USW and TUVG, the Y-wings we seen in TCW are the same overall model we seen in the OT. - 07:24, December 17, 2016 (UTC)

Illustration of Y-wing modification Edit

So in the rebels trivia guide for secret cargo they specifically mention modifying the Y-wing during series 3 to transition from the clone wars version to the ANH version,

I can't link the pictures directly, but episode 318, trivia gallery 9 I think

I think this is illustrated quite nicely by the behind the scene asset pictures:

Initial theft, references being based on clone wars geometry, still has some plating left

Episode 302 behind the scenes gallery

By the end of the series (also someone explain why blue squadron is red.. and then green in the episode)

behind the scenes, episode 321-322

Not sure if this should be mentioned in the article, either the in-universe modifications or the behind the scenes transitions.
