Has anyone noticed that the  Blohm & Voss BV P.170 may have been the inspiration for the Star Wars ep.1 Naboo fighter? I thought this was interesting. I know that the older Movies took a lot of inspiration from WWII aviation. 

 

While looking up this aircraft, I came across a lot of RC WWII prototype aircraft that were up flying.

Engine nacelle looks like detachable multi-ton bombs...:unsure:

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Not surprised if it was. Lucas and Spielberg were pretty close on the first few movies, and I'm sure between the two of them, perhaps Spielberg who loved WW2 aircraft, suggested a few things to make the machines look interesting.

Yep, this one has had the nickname 'naboo starfighter' for a while. :) When will we see this one in-game? :trollface:
