Separatist Escort Starfighter
About this creation
CIS Vespex-Class Escort Starfighter

Commissioned by Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray shortly after the start of the Clone Wars and designed and built by the Huppla Pasa Tisc Shipwrights Collective, Vespex-class fighters serve primarily as escort vessels for Separatist shuttles and supply ships. While he would never admit it, the cowardly Viceroy wasn't willing to trust his security to droids alone as even the most advanced droids have limitations and are no match for a truly gifted pilot. Vespex fighters are usually piloted by members of an elite group of the Geonosian pilot caste but the control systems can be modified for use by other species. The fighter's weapon systems include two pairs of lasers and a pair of ion cannons. The ion cannons can be used in those instances when salvage of a valuable enemy vessel is desired (Gunray never misses an opportunity for profit). Each fighter is also equipped with an auxiliary astromech droid socket. Although they are not necessary for operation, astromechs are often employed on long duration missions to prevent pilot fatigue.

The model features a hinged canopy, folding wings, a removable and repositionable hatch for the astromech socket and a small storage compartment (accessed by removing the tail piece).

Brilliant! How on Genosis is a genosian supposed to fly something so amazing? They are a bunch of creepy evolved bugs.

Brilliant! The CIS style colours and shape have gone well with a slightly Geonosian design.

This is one of the best starfighters I've seen on MOCpages, and I've seen a lot. The general design is really terrific, especially with the cockpit and wings. Great work!

Quoting Tony Lin Nice design for your fighter! It reminds me of a Geonosis fighter!
Thanks! I love the design of the Geonosian fighter (it's one of my faves) as well as Dooku's Solar Sailer and wanted something that looked as though it fit into that family of starcraft (all designed by the Huppla Pasa Tisc Shipwrights Collective).
