Developed around the Rapier Assault Craft's chassis, the Intruder is an all-purpose, long-range, advanced strike fighter for use in the void of space. It boasts heavier armor, better visibility, higher maneuverability, and advanced atmospheric flight capabilities. The Intruder is an all around improvement on the Rapier with a price tag to match: one Intruder ASF costs are equivalent to four Rapiers. It also has something else the rapier lacked: a bomb compartment. The Intruder's bomb bay allows for heavier and more efficient attacks on larger tagets. It also takes on a more versitile role. Better maneuvering increases its fighter capabilities, but it is also more effective at bombarding larger targets as well, making it difficult to be classified as either Attack or Fighter.
I owe credit to a far more talented builder than myself, dasnewten over on flickr. His Naganata, served as a heavy influence for this ship.
Okay, enough of that. Let's let the photos speak for the ship now:
Thanks for looking! I appologize that the photos could not be edited, the computer i use that has photo shop on it crashed. You can see more photos, including WIP pics here.
This is pretty sweet! BTW thanks for your compliment on my Challenger, you know how much I appreciate your opinion, I thought to send you wip pics but I didn't want to bother you, but I can send you my recent wip if you would like to see it, you know, like the old times ;) BTW nice pic on the homepage ;p
Quoting Ryan Link Is this based off something or did you come up with the design?
Thank you! This ship was designed using inspiration from my Rapier and Rob Dasnewten's Naganata which can be seen over on flickr. Oddly enough, it more closely resembles Rob's G4 Harpy which I didn't see until after I built this.
