HAAF-1 "Arrowhead"
I built this fighter mainly from the pieces of the NPIS-3(229 pieces). Since that ship contained many of my best fighter pieces, I figured I might as well build another. The ship is 14 studs wide at its longest point(the rear) and 2 studs wide at the nose. The ship is 20 studs long. Personally, I like this one more than the NPIS-3
About this creation

The HAAF-1 earned its nickname from its shape, which closely resembles an arrowhead. Compared to the NPIS-3, it is a much smaller fighter.


The HAAF-1, or Heavy Attack Armored Fighter, enters service slightly before the NPIS-3. It is considerably slower than the NIPS-3, but boasts a far more powerful armament. Four repeating cannons are positioned next to the cockpit, as well two homing missiles, and an additional torpedo located near the rear of the craft.



Compared to the NPIS-3's engines, the HAAF-1 can produce ~60% thrust. Thus making the craft an easier target. To compensate for this, squadrons of HAAF-1's and NPIS-3's are often deployed in tandem. The craft's engines still allow for interplanetary travel, but takes ~40% longer. The fighter is able to handle atmosphere well and has been used for precision strikes. Unlike the NPIS-3, the HAAF-1 requires specialized docking ports, due to its rear design, and thus it is less often seen on planet air fields, mainly being deployed from orbital platforms and capital ships. The design of the ship make crash landing dangerous, due to the pilot being located at the direct front of the craft. However, crash landings in the HAAF-1 are much easier to repair than the NPIS-3, mainly resulting in damage to the launcher systems.


This picture is to demonstrate some of the unnecessary detail that went into making the ship. It shows the engines under the hood. Additional unnecessary detail include some pipes that run between the engines(cannot be seen). Although it wasn't needed, it made building the ship much more enjoyable, and recommend anyone to try it.






This last picture shows some of the HAAF-1's maneuvering thrusters.

I like how nothing protrudes from the basic shape; no wings, no thrusters that stick out. Great design, very insipiring.

Quoting Parrington Levens Wow, what a great build, the slanted canopy glass is a master stroke, and the details on this are intricate and well excecuted. Cool ship mate.
Quoting Hans Dendauw Awesome! Excellent use of greeble, great angles (specifically the windscreen), and the shape is cool too. Engines look like they could use some 'upgrading', but overall, a kick-but ship!~H
Thanks for the kind words guys! This is probably my favorite ship that I've built, so I'm glad you like it.

Quoting minime (AKA special person) brilliant!!!! a well detailed piece of craft, i like that cruise missile on the bottom. the colours worked out well as well. =]=]=):D=]
I forgot to mention that the missile can be fired directly backwards, making it an excellent way to dispose of pursuers.

Quoting Space Pirate nice little fighter! I like the use of stickers and also the angled windscreen...though I'm not sure how you fixed it? :O
To simple connections, a 2x1 hinge one row behind the dark gray grill supports the windscreen, and a pair of legs two rows behind the pilot hold up the rest.
