Valiento, you forgeth that Lucas' thing about the A-wings also makes no logical sense. If there were A-wings before ANH, why weren't they used at Yavin, or ANYWHERE ELSE other than the Droids cartoon show settings, for that matter? Ditto on B-wings. I couldn't care less about what Lucas "wrote" into a TV program that about 11% of fans have seen. I'll accept the 10+ sources that give the real history on the development of the A-wing and the Shantipole project, which take the REST of the SW continuity into account (as opposed to the Droids TV show).
