The B9 light attack fighter was an early attempt at a starfighter, created in the early 22nd century during world war 4. After the war, production of the fighter was stopped due to several problems: The reactor core was prone to overheating and exploding if the coolant cycling system jammed, which it often did; The 2 laser cannons on the back would frequently fail to discharge the energy in it's capacitors, frying the electronics in the entire fighter when they overloaded; The shields would sometimes shift frequency, allowing energy blasts to hit the ship; And, due to various short circuits in other systems, the life support would often go offline for periods of several minutes, in which time the pilots would either suffocate, freeze, or be killed by poisonous gasses being pumped into the cockpit. However, when nothing went wrong, the fighter was very useful in battle. It could easily accelerate to 1/10th lightspeed in only a few seconds, and it was among the most agile fighters ever made. It's laser cannons, though not very powerful, cycled over 500 times per minute, reducing any target to molten metal in seconds.

Quite nice starfighter. I like the colour of the cockpit. But I think it needs a bigger wing..
I was going for a really sleek and aerodynamic design for this, so the small wings seemed logical for it. My original plans for this were an atmospheric racing ship actually, so it would have made even more sense to have smaller wings.
