One of the more memorable moments in Return of the Jedi – or any Star Wars movie, really – is the scene in which rebel pilot Arvel Crynyd rams his A-wing into the command bridge of the Executor, bringing the ship crashing down into the second Death Star. Somehow tragic and remarkably hammy at the same time, it’s a moment burned into the memories of Star Wars fans – and now someone has managed to recreate it in Star Wars: Squadrons. Or close enough, at least.
User _Aedric posted a video of their efforts to the Squadrons subreddit, and the timing of their attack is impeccable. Not only did they manage to perform a full “out-of-control” spin, it also looks like the team had brought down one of the Star Destroyer’s shield generators right before the attack, drawing yet another parallel to the films.
“Did it just work?”, someone in the video asks. Why yes, yes it did.
