A heavy fighter with a big cannon and some missiles
About this creation
The Nine Inch N.H.A.A.L.E.
The name says it all. It's a heavy fighter, and the whole thing is almost exactly 9 inches long (excuse me for using such an archaic and obsolete unit of measurement). This ship is more tactical than the Sayonara. Its missiles are smaller, but it has more of them. The color scheme is less than perfect at best, but I have done my very best to at least make it symmetrical. It's roughly gray accentuated with bright colors (i.e. orange, red, yellow). Enjoy.
Ever wonder what would happen if a disgruntled electrical engineer, a demon, and a trucker got together to make a cannon? Me niether! But this cannon is probably close to what they would make. It's all black and has red "wings", chrome pipes, a sophisticated tracking system, and V8 decals.
The missile launcher tube "wings". This cannon's effect on shielding is devastating, but it does virtually nothing to armor (hence the name "shield suppressant"). To compensate for this, and to live up to the ship's name (N.H.Anti.Armor.L.E.), I installed missile launcher tubes loaded with four TAAMs (Tactical Anti Armor Missiles). They have shiny points that rip through armor.
Here, you can see the TAAMs (nearly identical to TIMs) in their launch tubes. There are no studs or anything to hold them in place, but they stay in there quite snugly. Did I mention chrome pipes are good?
This is the first cockpit I designed from the ground up with lots of computer screens and ergonomics in mind. If I didn't take these things into consideration, the crew would probably be sitting on the floor with little more than a joystick.
Most of my other ships have cockpits that had to be retrofitted with this kind of nice stuff. The gunner's station is small and a bit cramped, but nonetheless equipped with several control and output interfaces.
