Star Wars: Imperial Winter is a free, multi-platform, real time strategy game using the open-source Spring RTS engine. Featuring over a hundred different units for the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance, spanning from The Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi, SW:IW aims to not only contain the best gameplay of any Star Wars RTS, but the most diverse cast of units, including: Stormtroopers, TIE Fighters, X-Wings, stealthy Rebel Commandos, Bothan spies, Royal Guards, Wookiees, "reactivated" Battle Droids, repulsorlift tanks, walkers, and more! Gameplay features include asymmetrical balance, with the two factions playing very differently from each other; territory-based constant-income resource system allowing a fluid economy rather than paying upfront; realistic weapon physics, with every single projectile's path is realistically calculated, meaning your men can hide behind a hill from enemy laser fire but not from an artillery cannon, and many other features.

Here's a screenshot of some of the remodelled Rebel starfighters, primarily by part-time contributors Wolfy and HawkMan:

New Rebel Air Models

from left to right top to bottom:
Z-95 Headhunter (Tier 1 Fighter)
X-Wing (Tier 2 Air Superiority Figher)
B-Wing (Tier 2 Ground Superiority Fighter)
E-Wing (Tier 2 Advanced Fighter)

The X- and B-Wings are completely finished and animated. The B-Wing will turn and fly upright when it takes off, and the X-Wing will "lock S-Foils in attack position." The Z-95 and E-Wings are animated, but will receive further minor skin updates to remove the squad markings on the wings.

Though these units look pretty hot, Wolfy can't skin for us full time, so if you know how to skin check out our previous newspost here for details! We could really use the help in that department.
