Nice ... that fighter is pretty slick looking.
Although I'm not entirely sure we should have seen it in the Clone Wars series though--it seems better suited to the III-IV intertrilogy series. Forgive me for waxing incredibly geekish for a second....
*The movies already showed the ARC-170, the V-wing, the Delta-7, the Eta-2
*the original toon introduced the V-19 Torrent
*and in other EU there's the Z-95 and a menagerie of lesser-known ones like the Cord-class, the Crusher-class, the NTB-630 naval bomber, and the PTB-625 planetary bomber.
All are established to have been utilized by the Republic fleet during the Clone Wars. Obviously they each have different roles--interceptor, bomber, short-range, long-range, etc--but introducing an early Y-wing now seems a tad redundant.
Sal, I'm actually with you on the point that it would have been sweet to see some "spiffed-up" Y-wings kicking ass for the Republic, but considering what George did give us, I don't know that it fits anymore.
