From the reaches of my collection comes the mono-chromatic cousin of the UTM Twin-Talon, the Twin-shadow. A few years back, the United Terrain Military fell on bad times financially. In order to raise funds, they sold massive amounts of pre-manufactured vehicles and weapons. The 18th Fleet purchased great quantities of the Twin-Talon fighter and modified its weapons and engines to take on a more advanced role. Rechristened the Twin-shadow, the purchase helped the UTM and the 18th fulfill the needs of both.
About this creation
The armament of the 'Talon was exchanged for a more accurate package: two medium "buzzguns" and two heavy cannons.
Two additional thrusters were added to provide the 'Shadow the ability to be inter-atmospheric, allowing it to reach escape velocity more easily.
Let these new fighters now have a new home amoung the Science Fleet. The ability to escape orbit will come in handy when on quick straffing runs of enemy installations on other planets. Keep'em coming.
