Millennium Falcon v1.0 by Master Qui-Gon and Darksaber

A legendary starship despite its humble origins and deceptively dilapidated exterior, the Millennium Falcon has factored into some of the Rebel Alliance's greatest victories over the Empire. On the surface, the Falcon looks like any other Corellian freighter, with a saucer-shaped primary hull, a pair of forward cargo-gripping mandibles, and a cylindrical cockpit mounted to the ship's side.

Beneath its hull, though, the Falcon packs many powerful secrets. Its owners made "special modifications" on the freighter, boosting its speed, shielding and performance to downright illegal levels. Its weaponry has been upgraded to military-class quad laser turrets. To cover rapid escapes, the Falcon sports a ventrally mounted hatch-concealed antipersonnel repeating laser and between its forward mandibles rest concussion missile launchers. The habitable interior of the vessel also has a few surprises, such as concealed scanner-proof smuggling compartments.

The Falcon pays a heavy price for its augmented performance, though. It is extremely recalcitrant and often unpredictable. Its reconditioned hyperdrive often fails. Its current captain, Han Solo, has even been seen to restart a failed ignition sequence with a hard rap on the bulkhead with his fist.

A vessel employed in the shady fringe business of smuggling, the Falcon was owned by Lando Calrissian before Solo won it in a heated sabacc game. Under Solo's command, the Falcon became a famous starship, completing the Kessel Run at unprecedented speeds. Solo and his first mate Chewbacca maintained the Falcon, constantly modifying and tinkering with it, coaxing the maximum speed from the ship.

This speed became quite useful as Solo and Chewbacca were drawn deeper into the Rebel cause, and the Falcon began flying missions for the Alliance. It was the Falcon that provided covering fire for Luke Skywalker's final attack run on the first Death Star. The Falcon became Princess Leia Organa's escape transport during the Battle of Hoth. During the decisive Battle of Endor, the Falcon flew point for the Alliance Fleet. Under Lando Calrissian's command, it soared into the heart of the incomplete Death Star, and delivered a missile volley that helped seal the Empire's fate.

Modeling Notes

I've replaced the sensor dish with a rectangular version as seen in TFA, Han and Chewie remain at the helm when I made the changes to the TFA Falcon at that time I didn't know they killed off Han, so, sorry but no Rey flying the Falcon, but I have made Han look older.

NOTE: The Millennium Falcon comes in three versions :-
  1. Han Solo and Chewbacca
  2. Lando Calrissian and Niem Numb
  3. The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon

Craft History

The T-70 X-wing fighter was a newer version of the classic design X-wing starfighter used by the Resistance in their fight against the First Order approximately 30 years after the Battle of Endor.

The T-70 X-wing starfighter is a cruciform starfighter. Itís armed with four wing-mounted laser cannons and dual projectile launchers which could carry proton torpedoes, concussion missiles, or mag-pulse launchers in the quick-change weapons bay. An underslung blaster cannon could also be mounted. The weapons were aimed using a targeting computer.

The craft had one pilot and an astromech droid, and was equipped with a hyperdrive and a spotlight on the ventral surface below the cockpit. The pilot had access to ejection systems in the form of a Guidenhauser Ejector seat, and was protected by an armored cockpit. The astromechs fit into a socket which could be variably configured for different models.

The long nose featured the projectile launcher in the bottom and a sensor in the cone. Along with the four advanced 5L5 fusial thrust engines, the craft featured retro thrusters with electromagnetic gyros for fine maneuvers.

The newer version was faster and more heavily armed than the old T-65s. Compared to the new generation of First Order TIE fighters, the T-70s were more expensive and complex, but also more versatile, able to fight both starfighters and capital ships.

The Incom-FreiTek T-70 X-wing starfighter was in use by the Resistance 30 years after the Battle of Endor. By that time, it had been replaced in New Republic service by the T-85 X-wing. The Resistance was unable to build sufficient numbers of the T-70, and had to rely on covert New Republic support.

The craft were donated by sympathizing members of the Republic, and the Resistance operated a fleet of the X-wings out of their base on D'Qar. Blue Squadron had their X-wings stationed in a hangar at the base.

During the struggle against the First Order, the Resistance deployed their X-wings to rescue the astromech droid BB-8 carrying information about Luke Skywalker on Takodana.

Soon after, as the First Order prepared to fire their Starkiller Base superweapon at the Resistance base, one wing of the Resistance's starfighters consisting of Blue Squadron and Red Squadron attempted to destroy the weapon, which succeeded after Black Leader Poe Dameron knocked out the thermal oscillator.

First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter

Modelling Notes

There are a number of differences between the New First Order TIE Fighters and the Older standard TIE Fighters, I’ve totally remade the wings, from the front they seem wider due to the wing braces but they are actually thinner than the previous models, also the wing strut are brand new plus I’ve also made a few changes to the cockpit pod. So those of you who may think it’s just a re-textured version of the old fighter you’re wrong.

Installation Notes

This is a manual installation using an MXvTED *shp files, the default slot is slot 6 but can be installed to any custom slot.

You have two options when installing the TIE/sf, according to a few sources the TIE has missile launchers on the lower gun turret, so to be on the safe side I have included a version with missile launcher and one without. Also please note the lower gun turret DOES NOT rotate, it is fixed in the forward firing position but it can be fired.

Please Note: The cockpit is just the standard cockpit included with any of my TIE's, I thought about creating a new two seater cockpit, but… since you can’t fire the guns facing backwards the need for a new cockpit wasn’t necessary, plus since you’re the pilot you spend all your time facing forward, the only thing missing really is the rear window which you'll see on the exterior model. You will also note that with most of my other TIE’s the engines are orange/red to represent flame or heat from them, but with the TIE/sf the engines don’t seem to glow, I’ve looked at footage from the hangar when Finn and Poe try to escape the Star Destroyer and there doesn’t seem to be any noticeable glow from the new enigines.

Craft History

The TIE/sf space superiority fighter was a starfighter model used by the First Order, a specialized version of the TIE/fo space superiority fighter. It was a two-seater unlike the previous TIE models, and was outfitted with enhanced weapons and sensor systems as well as hyperdrives and deflector shields. The TIE/sf was reserved for members of the First Order's elite Special Forces. On the lower side of the vehicle, directly below the primary fuel tank, was a turret containing a pair of laser cannons and a mag-pulse warhead launcher.

Craft History

The TIE/fo space superiority fighter, commonly known as the First Order TIE fighter, was a starfighter used by the First Order. As the First Order was a military junta inspired by the Galactic Empire, it also kept the TIE/LN starfighter design for their fighters, but upgraded the ship to modern combat standards. The TIE/sf space superiority fighter was a two-seated variant utilized by the First Order which only elite pilots were allowed to handle.

Advancements from the Empire's TIE/LN included on board deflector shields that provided better protection and offensive capabilities, improved solar cells, and higher-capacity converters. These upgrades were a side effect of the First Order's change of treatment towards pilots, seeing them as critical assets rather than cannon fodder.

First Order Special Forces TIE Interceptor

First Order Special Forces TIE Interceptor

Installation Notes

This is a manual installation using an MXvTED *shp files, the default slot is slot 6 but can be installed to any custom slot.

Craft History

This short-range fighter was first manufactured soon after the Battle of Yavin, and became abundant by the time of the Emperor's fall. It is faster more manoeuvrable, and far more lethal than the standard TIE fighter.

This Interceptor uses the standard TIE cockpit, drive pod, and wing braces. The solar collector panels have been elongated and bent, providing extra power while not limiting the pilot field of vision. The solar panels appear to be "dagger-shaped", making the interceptor far more intimidating while giving it a smaller profile, making it harder for opposing gunner to target.

For weaponry, the Interceptor has four laser cannons, one at the end of each solar panel. Advanced targeting software gives the pilot greater fire accuracy even during complex manoeuvre's. While the Interceptor does not have a pair of laser cannons below the pilots compartment, the cannon hardpoints is still in place and additional cannons could be mounted there if technicians could find the room for additional power generators.

The TIE Interceptor was revived by the First Order, It was a two-seater unlike the previous TIE models, and was outfitted with enhanced weapons and sensor systems as well as hyperdrives and deflector shields. On the lower side of the vehicle, directly below the primary fuel tank, was a turret containing a pair of laser cannons and a mag-pulse warhead launcher.

First Order Special Forces TIE Interceptor MkII

Installation Notes

This is a manual installation using an MXvTED *shp files, the default slot is slot 6 but can be installed to any custom slot.

Craft History

The Interceptor MkII has been designed to be a more versatile craft. In appearance, it is similar to the standard design except that the wings have been inverted, with the wings bending outwards rather than inwards. This improves the pilot's field of vision. The 'folds' are adjustable, and can be retracted to appear more like the standard Interceptor design. This is for storage purposes, as it means any ship carrying standard Interceptors needs no further modification, and provides a reduced profile when jumping to hypserspace (in a similar way to X-wing or B-wing foils).

It was a two-seater unlike the previous TIE models, and was outfitted with enhanced weapons and sensor systems as well as hyperdrives and deflector shields. On the lower side of the vehicle, directly below the primary fuel tank, was a turret containing a pair of laser cannons and a mag-pulse warhead launcher.

First Order Special Forces TIE Defender

Installation Notes

This is a manual installation using an MXvTED *shp files, the default slot is slot 9 but can be installed to any custom slot.

Craft History

The TIE Defender was developed shortly before the Battle of Endor. After initial testing, which was believed to be personal supervised by top Imperial Navy commanders, the TIE Defender was deployed to a small number of elite TIE wings. Only a few key personnel in the Navy command knew that the ship was used to defeat rogue Imperial Admiral Zarrin, who had planned to depose Emperor Palpatine.

The vessel represented a radical departure from conventional TIE designs and featured three sets of solar collection panels mounted at equilateral points around the fighters main hull, while keeping the standard cockpit pod. At over 300,000 credits per unit, it was more than five times as expensive as a standard TIE Fighter.

The TIE Defender features four laser cannons and two ion cannons, which can be fired independently for multiple targets or fire linked for a concentrated assault. Rounding out the TIE Defender's weaponry are two missiles launches which can each be equipped with four proton torpedoes and concussion missiles. For defence, the TIE Defender has a pair of Novaldex shield generators.

The TIE Defender was revived by the First Order and was outfitted with enhanced weapons and sensor systems as well as hyperdrives and deflector shields.

First Order Special Forces TIE Scimtar

Installation Notes

This is a manual installation using an MXvTED *shp files, the default slot is slot 49 but can be installed to any custom slot.

Craft History

Scimitar assault bombers are the newest generation of Imperial bombers and were ordered into production when (Grand Admiral Thrawn returned to seize control of the Empire's remnants. The ship is a dedicated atmospheric and spaces bomber with superior performance compared with the standard TIE bomber. It was designed with the assistance of the elite "Scimitar" bomber assault wing, the most decorated active Imperial bomber wing.

The bomber has a single pod with two elongated solar array wings unlike most Imperial vessels; the Scimitar is a two-man ship. The pilot and bomber compartment is in the forward section of the pod and can be quickly ejected from the main hull in the event of a critical hit by enemy gunners. This compartment extends ahead of the wings giving the pilot and bomber superior visibility compared with the TIE bomber.

The navigation and targeting systems, the power generator and the twin repulsorlift engines are housed in the middle of the pod. The repulsor thrusters are placed in the Scimitars wing struts for greater manoeuvrability. The rear portion of the pod contains the bomb bay and the sublight ion engine.

The bomb bay has room for sixteen concussion missiles each with an effective range of nine kilometres. Each warhead is powerful enough to destroy city buildings, reinforced bunkers, heavy repulsorlift speeders or even AT-AT walkers. While the Concussion missile loud is the standard weapon complement, proton grenades and free falling thermal detonators also can be loaded into the Scimitars bomb bays. The linked forward laser cannons have superior computer targeting for strafing runs against enemy troops and other ground targets.

The TIE Scimitar was revived by the First Order and was outfitted with enhanced weapons and sensor systems as well as hyperdrives and deflector shields.

First Order Special Forces TIE Bomber

Installation Notes

This is a manual installation using an MXvTED *shp files, the default slot is slot 5 but can be installed to any custom slot.

Craft History

The TIE Bomber was once the Empire's most common dedicated bomber. While slower and less manoeuvrable than standard starfighters, these bombers provide excellent "surgical strike" potential against ground and deep space targets.

TIE Bombers have double pods and elongated solar panels. The starboard pod holds the pilot's compartment as well as flight computers, communications, and life support. The port pod contains the forward and main ordnance bays as well as the targeting and delivery systems.

The TIE Bomber's weaponry includes high yield proton bombs, guided concussion missiles, orbital mines, and free falling thermal detonators. Depending on the mission configuration, TIE Bombers can carry eight concussion missiles, or four proton torpedoes in the forward ordnance bay. The main ordnance bay can carry eight more concussion missiles, four additional proton torpedoes, eight proton bombs, six orbital mines, or sixty four thermal detonators. Two front firing laser cannons are placed between the two pods providing protection from enemy ships.

The TIE Bomber was revived by the First Order, redesigned to be more maneuverable and faster than it's predecessor, it was also outfitted with enhanced weapons and sensor systems as well as hyperdrives and deflector shields.
