This is for a new standard for the Blue Squadron U-wing Pilot.

This standard is based on the the X-wing standard where costume pieces match, forum discussions, and rewrite guidelines. All feedback and recommendations are welcome. Please provide reference photos or reasoning for your change if possible. I will update this first post with changes as they are discussed. Thanks for the help!

Character Description

Blue Squadron was an air speeder and starfighter squadron that served as part of the Rebel Alliance's starfighter corps during the Galactic Civil War. The squadron most notably participated in battles such as the Battle of Scarif, Siege on Tureen VII, the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of Endor. The members were skilled pilots, and wore unique blue flight suits during the early stages of the war. (Source: Wookieepedia)
