Well this is kind of old, it's been on Flickr for a while, I just forgot to upload it to MOCpages.
About this creation
The CPF-57 was a versatile craft, being able to operate in both space and atmospheric missions (hence the S/A). The fighter served as an excelent asset in dog fights and certain variants could occupy a wide diversity of roles, it has a compliment of 9 missiles, with 6 being stored within the right wing. On the left wing it had two machine guns and a gatling gun specifically added for dogfights, though skilled pilots sometimes use these to pick off infantry. The entire back part of the ship acommodated a large fuel tank, giving this fighter an immpressive capacity and velocity. All these characteristics made it ideal for hit and run operations.
The overly detailed cockpit =P
Side view, I'm dissapointed at how stubby the nose looks from this angle=(
Backview, showing my pathetic excuse for an engine.
