Info: The R-56 Starfighter, nicknamed "Strakkor", was a space supieriority starfighter used by the EOS against the starfighters of the UNE and COP. It was flown by one pilot, and it carried several guns and two missiles. The .50 Caliber Machine guns had enough stopping power for lightly armored vehicles, but could not defeat a tank or another starfighter. Instead the agile starfighter relied on its two incredibly powerful Plasma Cannons, which could destroy a tank or a starfighter in a single shot, on maximum power configuration. While in maximum power configuration, however, the cannons were relatively slow firing, so it was common for pilots to set one cannon on maximum power and to set the other on lower power for quicker shooting. The starfighter also carried a pair of heat-seeking missiles on underwing pylons, which could be swapped for high-explosive bombs.

Well there you go, there's my E.O.S. starfighter. And it is my first entirely studless MOC! Thanks to Alex Ruiz for the name. I hope you enjoyed it! Oh, and I am going to be away for the next two and a half weeks, so, yeah. [This is also for Phaze and me's MOC-Off.]
Dude, you've been gone like 3 weeks... If you don't get back the 24th, you'll miss the start of Fed's new Galactic Conquest! Hurry back, us Seps need you! I hope you didn't go to Africa and get captured by some rebel faction or anything...
Amazing SNOT job on this Rocky! Very nice wings and cock-pit design and the back engine looks great also! The color scheme really makes the moc look good also! Well done! Oh, and could you check out my "A Ship's Tale" comic?

Amazing! This is one of the best SNOT fighters I have seen! I might make one for the COP, but I'll make it differently.
