"The Nu-class was a faster, long-range supplementary design to the standard LAAT gunship line, and shared similar design characteristics to the Republic shuttle of the Great Galactic War. The class had heavier armor and shielding than most atmospheric craft. However, the LAAT/i remained somewhat competitive with the Nu: while the shuttle could only carry 30 Clone troopers, the LAAT/i could carry that and four speeder bikes in addition. The shuttle also lacked the missile launchers of the LAAT/i.It was designed with fold-down wings, similar to fighters like the V-19 Torrent and later shuttle designs like the Theta-class and Lambda-class. Its boarding hatch was located at the front of the shuttle, in what could be described as the vessel's 'chin'(Wookieepedia).

The back-I just made the engines a little bigger
My new Commander Kyber. (I am going to post him soon)
I ordered this set a few weeks ago and built it. I think it's a great set, but it has a lot of problems wtih the look of it. I just modified it like eveyone else on MOCpages. I have to give credit to Geoff Herndon for the idea of the wing extensions and the look of the new "head."
