Robots don't need an athmosphere. Crystalline creatures don't need an athmosphere. Sapphire worlds don't have an athmosphere. The mother ark, I think, doesn't have an athmosphere.
The Chmmr don't need an athmosphere.
Then why does the Chmmr Avatar have wings like an aeroplane?
Short answer; because it looks cool like that. SC2 is space opera, so rule of cool applies.
In universe though, maybe the wings house a twin drive system? Or some impulse engines? Some other ships have wing-y structures like that in the game too, like the Mmrnmhrm, Ur-Quan etc.
