    I don’t think it’s that bad. The people on the right are closer in the frame and perhaps also on a hill. Also, the LAATs are six meters tall, and if you judge by the gun standing by the cockpit, this one’s only a little taller than that.

    Yeah I know they are closer. But the size of the cockpit windows makes it look like it is a toy craft for one of those people's children to play in with their toy clone trooper figures.

    The main thing to take away for me is that a lot of these ships are a lot smaller than I first thought.

    That massive Star Destroyer in the foreground intrigues me... It appears to have a prominent ridge-like superstructure running along its spine, as well as two turbolaser batteries located just in front. Reminds me of a Bellator. Judging by the (at least to my eyes) different design, seemingly larger bulk and the Resistance ships converging on it, I reckon it's
    Pryde's SSD.

    These are the smaller ships for sure. I imagine the big ones are still behind.

    It could be, but don't they have only two engines.

    I think I see three turrets, but it does seem to have an enlarged superstructure.

    So what you're really saying here is Dark Empire is canon.

    I think this is Pryde's ship:

    Is it just a Resurgent-class?

    The location of the hangar and bridge wing makes me think Resurgent.

    Here's a more accurate view of the "SSD" thanks to some better lighting. Turns out there are two of them, both of which are actually generic Sith Fleet ISD-1s. Ventral cannons(more visible in the second pic) and spinal turrets give it away.

    Re-sharing for those that want a better look at the ship from the opening dogfight in episode 5 of The Mandalorian.

    I'm starting to wonder if the trailers are spoiling the end of the battle in TROS. It appears that the Resistance attacks the Sith with a minor fleet of fighters and the CR90, only for the fleet to arrive like the Rohirrim and come to the rescue. Just a guess on my part, but if that is the case I wish they never showed that big fleet.

    If that is how they play it, I want Poe, Wedge and co in a hangar giving the Two Towers motivation speech before Theoden and Aragorn and few others rode out of the gate to certain doom!

    Have Wedge unite the leftover pilots of various Squadrons, including Poes into yet another Red/Rogue Squadron...

    Arise now, Pilots of this Alliance!
    Lasers shall be fired, hulls be splintered,
    a fighter-day, a red day, ere the Republic rises!
    Fly now, Fly now! Fly to Victory!

    Let this be the hour when we pull triggers together. Fell deeds awake. Now for wrath, now for ruin, and the red dawn. Forth, ROGUE SQUADRON!

    Really wish they came out with make/model info on these. Like when this pic was released they tagged it as 'Lantillan Shipwrights Convor-class strikefighter'

    Same with the Razor Crest....from the dialogue I assume that is the class name...but who is the manufacturer??

    You're not wrong. But it makes me wonder... what happened to the Resistance fleet from RotR?

    Could have survived, if the battle in RotR is the one depicted in Spark of the Resistance. Both involve a Resistance fleet ambush on Resurgent(s), with the former consisting primarily of Mon Cals.
