We know about the classics X-wing, Y-wing, A-wing, B-wing, etc... These "wings" are present in most, if not all, the films. But do any others exists like E-wing, K-wing, V-Wing, U-wing, etc? How many of these starships are there? One for every letter?

    Really, since they took out all the English letters from the movies, the roman letter designation makes no sense in Star Wars anymore. – Jack B Nimble Oct 31 '17 at 17:12

    And don't forget that the X on an X-wing is formed by the... S foils. – Buzz Oct 31 '17 at 18:01

    This could get weird very fast if the Star Wars universe had emoji. – T. Sar - Reinstate Monica Nov 1 '17 at 10:15

    There's the infamous GL-Wing. It's a fighter that notoriously won't shoot first – Machavity Nov 1 '17 at 12:45

    +1 Awesome list. Can you provide an example image where applicable? – Devsman Oct 31 '17 at 18:11

    @JohnP The only references to a M-wing I could find were specifically calling it the "M-Class", so it doesn't technically fit. There's a few other *-Class ships out there. – ench Oct 31 '17 at 18:36

    @JohnP, with regards to the L-Wing. Are you referring to the S-250 Chela-class starfighter? The only evidence I can find of an L-Wing is a picture for that ship with the filename Lwing. Do they mention the vehicle's name on screen or in the comics? – ench Oct 31 '17 at 18:41

    @Tonny you might also be thinking of the Z-95 Headhunter, which was featured in the Star Wars: TIE Fighter game starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Z-95_Headhunter. It's like an X-Wing, but with two fixed wings only, no s-foils. In my head, I called it the "z-wing" because of its similarity to the X-wing, and the fact that it had a Z in its name. – user151841 Nov 1 '17 at 14:08
