Trust JJ Abrams to pull off a bit of misdirection. The director currently at the helm of a little low-budget indie going by the working title of Star Wars Episode VII continues to drip feed little titbits of information like it just isn’t even a big deal at all.
@CDCanimation It is in fact an Episode VII X-wing, not a Z-95.
