|The New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels|
September 30, 2003
The ninth book in Del Rey's Essential Guide series, The New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels features an in-depth look at one hundred ships, fighters, and other flying machines from the original and prequel trilogies as well as the Expanded Universe (including the The New Jedi Order series), each with its own one- to two-page spread including detailed schematics. This guide is frequently used on Wookieepedia. Below is information about the book.
There were, however, some glaring errors throughout the book. For instance, the AT-AT is shown to be made by 'KURT' Drive Yards, and the A-Wing is said to be affiliated with the Galactic Empire. The book also described the Executor as being 12,800 meters long.
