Recommended Posts

Today we use  Glass for windows everywhere even the space shuttle has glass windows (I think)

so what do you think the windows on the arwings,wolfens and other craft are made of in the starfox universe?

I'm goign for a  product called Invisosteel  or something similair to it.basicly a  window like steel

There is such thing as something called a plasma window, NASA has thought about using it on the Space Shuttle, problem is, they're only able to generate enough to make a very tiny panel.

Seeing how Star Fox is supposed to have very advanced technology, I would assume they could generate enough plasma to make the window, so maybe they use that.

You could always create a plate of the hardest alloy possible and make it invisible with a cloaking device.

Of course, that would only work if said window isn't movable, like the Great Fox viewport.

For movable windows like the cockpit shield of space fighters such as Arwings, it would likely be too heavy to be practical.

In Star Wars it's called Transparasteel. (Uber Star Wars geek right here. :lol:)

just go with really thick armored glass, maybe protected by a force field to prevent against space bits and such.

Some fighters (F-4, F-14, others) have a "blown" windscreen. There is a vent in front of the frontal panel, and compressed air from the engine can be ducted through it, which will blow off any rain water. It replaces a windscreen wiper on jets. Maybe you could have something like this on an arwing or space fighter, to protect the canopy during atmospheric entry and high-speed space flight.
