    Seriously why?

    And why are the vehicle designs not much better than they were 30 years ago in The Last Jedi and force awakens?

    It's not, how do people get that impression? Those Naboo fighters were shyt. A shytty drone army and slow ass weak tanks. Those dainty ass yellow chromed out jets. The whole point was they hadn't been in real wars for so long their tech was more pretty than good.

    And those proto-death stars? :mjlol:

    It's not...what make you think that?

    In the prequels though you had an army backed by a Galactic Senate and an army backed by very rich planets, so the equipment on both sides was very well funded. In the original trilogy the Empire's army was well funded against a band of rebels who were using older equipment from the clone wars and basically slapping duct tape on the new ships and equipment they did have. It was a rag tag group of spies and guerrilla fighters who used whatever they could get their hands on.

    I would agree with you there but it's obvious that the Tie Fighter is not as advanced as the X-Wing Fighter.

    Its not. But the Empire's mantra was strength in numbers. TIEs didnt need shields or hyper drive because they could just overwhelm you with sheer numbers. X-Wings had to be advanced to combat that. Not to mention certain TIE variants (although not many of them) were definitely on par with X-Wings.

    I dunno if it is but its a fallacy to assume technology will always improve with time.

    Another thing to think about, is in the prequels we see the great cities in the universe. We see Coruscant, etc. In the new trilogy we see the backwater planets mostly.

    The Xwing was a stolen imperial design. It was already old by ep. 4. One of the things that annoyed me about TFA was the Awing was the newer, better replacement in ep.6 but they used Xwings because they were more iconic (and all they wanted to really do was rip off the Star Wars look).

    TIE fighters were cheap mass produced supplements because the Empire didn’t want to use a stolen design until the Interceptor came out.

    A-Wings had the speed but not the firepower, and they definitely weren't a replacement

    It is just a movie. The mental hope fans go through. It is worse in Star trek forums.
