Says someone who obviously has never seen the inside of a Sherman tank. Hint, tiller bars and caterpillar treads are not the same as a truck. Not even close. And, never minding that a flying vehicle is considerably more difficult to operate. But, without any training, apparently the farm hand can hop into the equivalent of an F15 and operate it without any problems. In fact, he's a better pilot than the horde of TIE fighter pilots who had years of training, as well as the couple dozen or so Rebel pilots that get shot down.
AFAIK, a T-16 isn't even shown in any of the movies. Does it have shields? How many engines does it have? How many weapons? It has ion cannons? Torpedo launchers? That's quite the truck you're driving there.
Oh, an with, what, a couple of weeks of training, Luke holds his own, and then later, defeats Vader in a saber duel. That's some pretty intense training there.
Good grief, whinging that Rey is a Mary Sue character in Star Wars is kinda pointless no? EVERY Star Wars character is the best of the best.
Probably more comparable to a cropduster feing able to fly a military biplane. I think T 16s have a small gun he used to shoot womp rats.
They established in the movievhevwas a pilot. He said he could fly the falcon. They established he was a marksman and x wings have R2.
Luke also had to much of his father in him who was one of the greatest pilots in the Galaxy. All of that was ANH.
Take Finn. He gad military training it's not unreasonable he can use a gun or function ad a Gunner. Ww2 had a black cook man an AA gun atvPearl Harbor.
Rey didn't even use a blaster until Han gave her one. Yeah dsure we don't really need an explaination about her using a staff or Kylo using freeze blaster bolt.
Finn swung it like a club he wasn't deflecting blaster bolts.
It wasn't just Rey either the little kid could use telekinesis. What's the point of training or having padawans in all of the previous movies.
Even in legends untrained force users were dangerous more due to the dark side than spontaneous use of force lightning.
