Using the video of this with troops standing in the doorway I would estimate the door opening to be 2 meters tall. If so, that puts this about 30 meters long. I can also see about 6 troops ready to deploy so I would say it can hold at least that and would estimate maybe 4 more with gear.
- Since the film (and loads of supplement material) will be released soon, it'd be best to wait for official numbers rather than speculate. - Cwedin(talk) 15:28, August 4, 2016 (UTC)
Title Should the article be titled "UT-60D U-wing"? We already have "T-65B X-wing", "RZ-1 A-wing" and "A/SF-01 B-wing".220.127.116.11 16:44, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
I think it's a safe bet to say the U-Wing's inspiration is the UH-60 Blackhawk, a real life transport/gunship (helicopter), also notable for its side door armament and whose usage resembles that of the U-Wing's as portrayed in Rogue One. The U-Wing's technical designation is also extremely similar, and I doubt that's a mere coincidence. What do you guys think? Should we wait for some kind of official confirmation before adding it to the article? Shadow86 (talk) 03:20, December 17, 2016 (UTC)
- The UH-1 Huey was doing the door gunner thing long before the blackhawk, and thanks to the UH-1 (and its door gunners) being such an iconic part of Vietnam in both real life and film, it seems likely that the UH-1 was the inspiration. especially in light of the fact that the commando force that landed on Scarif appear to be modeled in costume and equipment after the US troops that fought in Vietnam, both the real world footage and in films like Apocalypse Now.

Is it possible the older U-Wing used by the Lothal resistance is the BT-45D, given that it has no hyperdrive, and from what I can see, no weapons either?-User:Fan26 (Talk) 23:14, November 7, 2017 (UTC)
- I thought originally it was a BT-45D but this image shows two blaster cannons in the front of the U-wing, and Kanan Jarrus mentions that it's an older model so I just based my edit off of that--Vitus Infinitus (talk) 23:27, November 7, 2017 (UTC)
- well the BT-45D is indicated to be an older model than the UT-60D, given the UT-60D is a militarized BT-45. and blasters would have been a logical addition to anything in a rebellion cell. so i'd say the jury is out until there is official word as to which type it is.
