F-376 Stratospheric Interceptor
Finally a fighter with a decent scale.
About this creation
The F-376 is a Stratospheric fighter also capable of being deployed into zero gravity vacuum combat(space combat). Using SCRAM-Jet technology perfected in the early 22nd century, this craft is proof that even old concepts can be put to good use. Capable of flying at up to Mach 17, the 376 is a match for most atmospheric fighters. However, due to the large rocket boosters required to reach the speeds for a SCRAM-Jet to operate at peak performance, and to operate in vacuum, the firepower of the craft is rather limited. There simply isn't enough room for more than four missiles. (In atmospheric flight it can hold up to 6, as smaller boosters are are all it needs.)


A shot with the pilot for scale. I'm trying to move away from the rebel pilot bodies in favor of a more modern looking flight-suite.


If I've learned one thing in my year and a half on MOCpages, it's that a decent creation can be made even better with accessories. I do love that missile loader-ma-thingy. Also notice that instead of landing gear, this thing uses the repulsor technology shown in many UNE MOCs to hover over to a landing cradle.


A front(ish) view of the '376.


I'm not too happy with the side silhouette, but that's just how it turned out. In the rare chance I make a Version-2 I'll try to fix that to be more streamlined. Whoops! The missiles crooked.


The back. You can see the SCRAM-Jet exhaust between the stabilizers.


Another mocking picture of that silhouette....


Vents on the wings enable the craft to maneuver in space.


SCRAM-Jet intake. Don't put your hand in there....


Another shot of the SCRAM-Jet exhaust. Nothing too fancy, but that's the principle of the SCRAM-Jet. No moving parts to break.


The cock-pit. I like that little chair thing. The stripes are a reminder to "watch your step".


Underside of the wings. 4 Rattler missiles and two large boosters.


You may also note that this isn't in the usual UNE red color scheme. I just wanted to see how black would look, OK? Just say it's in a special squadron or something.....
And remember.......
The UNE Want's YOU!

Simple, yet awesomely designed. For 23CC: cost 5/10, att 6/10(missiles aren't just enough), def 8/10(It seems pretty armored to me.)

5/10 for cost, 6/10 for defense, 8/10 for attack.

I really like the sleak, stealth feel you gave to this fighter in addition to its nice round size. Great work! Really like it!

nice. I'll (fake) order 3. need an escort for my flagship, yet to be built. imagination stage still. idea building, MAJOR resource finding...

Strangely enough, some great creation like this one hasn't got a great side silhouette. That's maybe because some of us mainly focused on the 3/4 angle that you've used in the main pic. Seen from that angle, this is a totally awesome fighter, and I love the background too. Really nice ! PS that said, I think there will only very few things to change to make a perfect side silhouette ;-)

I would have given it some, but I wasn't thinking when I made the wings. Sadly, there will be no V2 of this as it has been demolished for my tank.

A tight little fighter. Nice. A celebration of SNOT. Every MOC has a "Bad side". With this one, it's the stright on side view. So just don't photograph it from that angle,and...poof. Suddenly it looks even better! Attack!

I like the SNOT wings, especially how you did the black highlights. I'm not sure if I like that or dark red might look better though. I would suggest making the top slope down immediately behind the cockpit so that it looks less like a sausage with wings. Other than that, it's awesome.

Whoa this is a nice looking fighter, I like the SNOT wings. The little yellow support vehicle adds a nice touch to it :)

So its an atmospheric fighter craft capable of limited exo-atmospheric combat? Being based on mostly realistic technology only makes it better. It's a bit small, though; modern fighter aircraft are massive vehicles.

Make the nose bigger. Other than that, Its awesome

That is an awesome fighter. You did a great job building it with almost no studs, which greatly contributed to its streamlined look. The overall silhouette and appearance is a great combination of Sci-fi and modern design, and you put just the right amount of ordinance under the wings -- enough to make it look heavily armed but not so much that the silhouette was cluttered. Incredible work.

holy snap john!! this thing is great, but i like the red highlights better. im prolly just use to seeing them on all your MOCs thought. how long did it take to make this? i really like the near studlessness.

It looks like a nice spin on a classic shape. The whole fighter could stand to be a plate thinner, and a couple of bricks longer. I also encourage you to add another canopy behind to create a bubble canopy, instead of that long tube of bricks you have behind the existing one. This should help with the silhouette prolems. It's got a unique look, and those weapons look stunning! That missile loader makes the moc look better, definately. Great job overall.

SNOTty! Looks awesome! The SNOT technique is great and so is the resemblance of the F-16 fighter jet! Great mini-details! -Ben =D

Quite interesting. Could be torn apart by standard space or standard atmospheric fighters, though. Or at least the description implies that.

Quoting Andreas Höttler Very good work, the wings are great, my only problem is the part behind the cockpit, it´s to straight, there you could have done a bit more, I think.
Yeah, I know. I was trying other designs but they weren't working out, so I eventually gave up. I'll probably try to fix that later.

Personally, I think the cockpit/body transistion is a bit clumsy, but I really like the wings and stabilizers. The payload is also nice. 4/5.

Very nice! I love the inlaid patterns in the SNOTted wings, and the design has a great overall flow. Oh, and I don't mind when you occasionally ask me to check something out, because I know you're a very good builder :)
