The 2nd Place winner in Saber Scorpion's Xarkon Vehicle Contest. A heavy assault fighter from the nation of Xarkon.
About this creation
Background: The Xarkon Heavy Aerospace Assault Fighter, 'Norn', is named after the Norse fates, which saw the past, present, and future. Xarkonian engineers received orders directly from Emperor Lucas Mars himself to create a new heavy aerospace fighter. The result was the XHAAF MkI, nicknamed the 'Norn'. The adjustable wings allowed for gliding in atmosphere, while also retaining the Crown of Xarkon shape. The large engines give the craft excellent speed, making it good for hit-and-run missions. Another rare trait in fighters is the Interstellar Drive, used on this craft as per orders of Lucas Mars. These craft would be able to chase enemies in light speed, surprising the enemy. The craft requires a pilot and a gunner. Some modified models are outfitted with two gunners for an advantage in massive dogfights. The pilot can also use the medium Quad-Pulse Cannons mounted on the cockpit. Due to the fighter's versatility, it is one of the most common sights in major space battles.
One of the most awesome entries in my contest for sure. It got second place, but it really deserved to tie with both first-place winners, in my opinion. I love the angle of the wings, and I think the cockpit canopy fits fine. Awesome job. But what's with the long stretch of no new MOC's here? Build more stuff!
