I've had this one lying around for a while but had no time to finish it, now I just have to texture it and fix the EG's. Comments?

Looks like a hybrid of the USAF Stealth bomber (flat, pointy tail), the USAF F-111 fighter/bomber (shape of wings), and the IRD from XWA (fuselage & cockpit). Four laser cannons and 2 ion cannons makes for a powerful punch. This is a fighter/bomber, right?

With this sort of shape it ought to handle like the Toscan fighter or maybe the Planetary fighter--plenty of pitch but slow to roll. What type of flight model will you use?

I think it looks like a PZL-230F Skorpion without the canards or rudders. (How obscure is that?) I look forward to using it.

I made it up in my head as a heavy starfighter, the kind used to take the starch out of a Frigate commander's pants.

It's very fast for a heavy fighter (notice the size of the engines compared to the ship) but not as agile as most (only slightly better than an X-Wing). It's more of a boom-n-zoom type of fighter, and would need some light escort if high-speed defense fighters were around but it can usually look after itself.

Data
speed: 130 MGLT
Shield: 125 SBD
Hull: 45 RU
Roll: 42
Pitch: 20

Firepower
4x LaserCannon
2x TurboIon Cannon
10x Warheads

I need a name for it... any suggestions? I was going to call it a Wraith Medium Starfighter but that sounds more like an agile multirole type rather than a high speed strike fighter.

I get a chance to run XWA once a week if I'm lucky so as you can imagine this will probably not be completed anytime soon(thinking of making a cockpit too http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif ).

The hull looks kinda chrome-y. Howsabout Silverback, or Starshine?

Heck, make it an alien fighter, and you can make up a nonsense word.

Is there a ship that can go over 200+ MGLT?
That would be sweet.

Looks like a mini Dreadnaught to me. Maybe a Katana fighter? nah, nevermind. I'll stick to flying them.

I remember in TIE Fighter, the Missile Boat with SLAMs jacked up could bust 400 MGLT.

I dont think that you can do it in XWA though.

All it take in XWA to get your ship going over 200 MGLT is a nice little slot in AlliED when designing missions......

I loved trying to see how fast I could go for how long. By changing around the shield and laser settings, you could get it pretty high. Timing was real important, though.

Those were the good old days in TF.
I remember them like it was just yesterday. Wait a sec, I was playing it yesterday, du'h!

The cockpit seems way to large, compared to the size of the fighter. How many crew members ?

You know, as far as comparisons go, it's the P-47 Thunderbolt of the Star Wars era!

Sorry for the lack of response I've been looking for a new joint to live in

I like "Silverback", you don't want to mess with one of those fellas http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif.

It's a big ship, 28m long, it has 2 crew in a tandem cockpit, what would be a good size? I'm aiming for a medium-level technology era where 1-person fighters have only recently been developed by the terrans, that's why the ship looks kinda dated (IMO) compared to Starwars craft.

Here's a list of ship's I've built, they are all completed 3DS models but only four have been Opt'ed so far.

Civilian
Monolith-class Super Freighter
Atryx-class trans-atmospheric shuttle

Pirates
Typhoon-class Carrier (heavily modified Monolith Super Freighter)
Cutlass (Mod A) Fighter
Cutlass (Mod B) Assault Fighter

Terran Imperium
Pyros-class Frigate (finished)
"Voodoo" F/ATB-32 Torpedo Bomber
"Warhawk" F/MD-40 Medium Fighter
"Mamba II" F/HV-48 Heavy Fighter (done but needs textures)
"Silverback" F/HA-62 Heavy Assault Fighter (almost done, needs textures)

Scarbian Ta'Sect
"Blade" Droid Fighter (almost finished)
"DeathSong" Droid Controller Cruiser

btw, this is non-Starwars campaign
