Remi and Cynda . Here's a couple of little ships for those who like unusual designs. They are from the same planet as Maple(more on the planet later). . This is Remi.
Wingspan: 56 feet
Length: 40 feet
Height: 28 feet
Armament: 2 medium laser cannons, 2 light guns
Type of craft: Fighter (white mark), Light Transport (burgundy)
The rear has a small window to lessen the chance of the rear gunners being killed.
Powerplant: 4 pulse engines
2 Hydro-electric converters (in the floats)
Remi has 16x16x8 feet of cargo space, and is often used as a light transport.
Thick bay doors to protect the cargo, and a better look at the cargo bay.
I made this with the specs for a Viper(floats are the prongs), and this is why people do not make transport Vipers.
This is Cynda.
Wingspan: 52 feet
Length: (wings out) 40 feet,(wings in) 32 feet
Armament: 4 light guns, 1 medium cannon
Type of craft: Fighter (White mark on dorsal fin)
Powerplant: 1 pulse engine, 2 hydroelectric engines(in floats)

Ok, here is more info on the planet. It is named Talitsan, and, while covered in mostly water, has a suitable atmosphere to sustain life and is not too close to its sun(it can get a bit chilly sometimes, but it is tolerable for living conditions). The people that came to this planet took advantage of the water to make energy, and with the advancements they made, they could get power for several hours of flight on hydroelectric energy alone. The power that they get from the float engines can be routed to the pulse engines, either to increase range or to increase speed, or both. If the main engines run low on energy, the ship can get energy by landing on the water and get energy from landing/moving forward on the surface of the sea.
