More Details On The ‘U-Wing’ From ‘Rogue One’

When Lucasfilm first announced ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ there was a mysterious rebel ship in the image above.

The Star Wars Show on Wednesday released more information on the ship, NCOM UT-60 but better known as the U-Wing.

‘It is a troop transport and gunship designed to bring in rebel troops through heavy fire zones and get out as quickly as possible,’ said Lucasfilm Story Group member Matt Martin.

The film is a prequel to the original 1977 Star Wars, dealing with rebel efforts to convey Death Star blueprints to Leia Organa. The screenplay is by Chris Weitz, and the film is due in theaters on December 16.
