A heavy assault fighter used by the Space Pioneer Pilots of Elite Squadron.
About this creation
This heavy assault starfighter was one of the first offensive fighters designed by the Space Pioneers. The ship was designed shortly after creating the enhanced humans known as the Elites. The fighters are considered one of the toughest ships to pilot, thus Elites were hired to pilot these ships. Piloting of this ship may be difficult, but weapons aren't nearly as hard to control. Standard Space Pioneer gunners walk to the center of the hull, where a gunning station awaits them. The ship can carry a maximum of 1 pilot, 1 gunner, and 2 passengers.

This, as with most of my models, started out as something different. This was originally going to be a starfighter from my novel, The Last Eclipse. The fighter in the novel actually had retracting wings and had more laser turrents than missiles. The SNOT used on the bottom of the ship was particulary hard. It took me a while to find a good way to make a sloping bottom without having to use inverted slopes. The cockpit does not change position, it has a double-hinge system that locks it into only one position. I think the thing looks pretty deadly if you ask me.
