I've no idea what you're on about here. The imperials were exploring possibilities in new fighter designs, but the bottom line was that none of their stuff really got much love from High Command. The only units that did were things like the TIE Interceptor.
Gunboats were'nt a product of learning either. Hell, the first skiprays were in use before the Battle of Yavin.
