G.A.I.A Lughnasadh Fire - Borderworld Series W "Razor" Very Light Fighter . As the G.A.I.A. started to develop the "Samhain Fire Mk II" and equip it with a new, compact, fighter suitable FTL drive, the Borderworlds started to develop their own prototype of such a vessel for G.A.I.A. And this is the result! ENJOY!! . The reason that this vessel is called a "very light fighter" lies in the fact that it uses revolutionary lightweight materials, thus increasing the manoeuvrability immensely when compared to a "Dagger" . Due to the new materials used, it was possible to decrease weight and increase manoeuvrability and armour at the same time. The engineers also developed a new compact triple engine for the "Razor" which proved to be sturdier and more powerful than the Daggerīs huge single engine propulsion system, giving the "Razor" a higher top speed and faster acceleration. The extreme manoeuvrability, speed, acceleration and a highly efficient radar jamming system made the countermeasure dropper nearly obsolete, so that ace pilots will choose a model without a hardpoint for that defensive system. (I didnīt have the right bricks to build one anymore. Iīm glad that I could come up with a turret ;-P). The best part of the ship is the FTL drive. It is located in the nose together with all the sensor equipment. It creates an artificial target-oriented jumphole (some kind of wormhole) directly in front of the ship. Below the red ribbed surface on the shipīs back lies a wave emitter that is needed for destroying the jumphole behind the ship. This ship is the new pride of Borderworld engineering!

Here you can easily see one of the auxiliary tanks mounted below the wing, it can be replaced by a gun, if the range is not needed.
On the back you can see the wave emitter for destroying the jumpholes behind the ship.
Closer look at the engines.
Jet intake, for flying in atmosphere and shield emitter.
Letīs take a look at what lies behind that nose,...
... a cockpit with a happy pilot!
Nose section with the FTL drive and canards for better maneuverabilty.
1. Expanded canards 2. Retracted for FTL jump!
The Borderworldsī Ambassador wanted a little presentation!
Some pics without the landing gear, which I havenīt planned at first. Thatīs why the front gear has a different colour than the rear.
