While the story elements of the New Republic were pulled in fewer directions than that of the Imperial Remnant, it was no less of a challenge to design them as a faction for Battlegrounds. Sandwiched between the Rebel Alliance, Resistance, Naboo, and Republic, coming up with traits that made them a strong Air/Jedi civilization, while still being mechanically distinct from the factions that came before proved quite difficult. In the end, we feel that we've settled on a promising set of unique elements that will allow New Republic players to shake up the battlefield in a variety of ways.

CIVILIZATION OVERVIEW - NEW REPUBLIC

Established shortly after the defeat of the Galactic Empire at Endor, the New Republic sought to become a continuation of the ways of the Old Republic. Despite their struggles in the early years of their new government, more and more systems would reject the control of the scattered Imperial warlords and rally under the New Republic banner.

The New Republic is an aerial powerhouse, with units that specialize in engaging ground targets. K-Wings fill the role of Attacker for the New Republic and feature a significantly increased rate of fire over the Attackers of other civilizations. Further complementing this firepower is their Unique Unit, the V-Wing Airspeeder, which can bring ruin to undefended ground armies in moments with a devastating barrage of cluster missiles.

Having the V-wing and the K-wing at the same time, you can't get better than that!

Will there be an expansion of the gameplay for infantry? For example, will the original units be changed? In fact, Repeater Trooper looks very strange, even in the realities of Star Wars, it will be difficult to equip everyone with such heavy weapons.
And there will be new units? For example, armed with anti-tank complexes, snipers, commandos?

No. This mod is not reinventing the wheel.

The K-Wing is literally the Star Wars equivalent to an A-10 Warthog.
