My entry for the U.T.M Fighter Contest, this was a great chance for me to test my building skills in a different subject criteria than i usually do. Thanks to J-MAN N for running the contest! :)
About this creation
Here is Disrupter, a fighter jet created for the U.T.M (United Terrain Military) by a secret company that works for the U.T.M called ROBO CORP. Its name is derived from one this Fighter's unique weapons, the Disrupter. What is so special about this weapon you might ask, well, the disrupter which is mounted on the wings of the Fighter is a one-of-a-kind weapon which shoots out photonic pulses which, when hits the enemy, causes very minimal damage, BUT penetrates the enemy aircraft's armour and travels to the engine, where it disrupts the engine's functions. This resulting in the enemy to slow down, and if hit enough times, the enemy aircraft will eventually stop.
Disrupter is also equipped with SWARM missiles on the front, and two Electro-magnetic auto-cannons which sleekly comes out of the sides.
Overall, this was a very fun build, and a new challenge for me, as i have never attempted to build an aircraft-based MOC, but this contest motivated me to do so, and I will probably create more in the future. enjoy!
Here, the thrusters around the main engine can open to reveal the key to the power of the jet, the TBE (transluscent block engine).

Here you will notice the ROBO CORP logo.
The Cockpit can open up to reveal the controls, unfortunately, a minifig cannot fit in.
Uniquely placed SWARM missiles which have a seeking ability.
Alpha mode. The fighter's default flight mode, for low-altitude flight, the position of the wings reduces alot of wind resistance, allowing the fighter to soar quicker than any other aircraft in the air.
Beta Mode. This mode is for medium-altitude flight, the positioning of the wings allows for acrobatic moves such as the loop-da-loop and other manuevers.
Gamma Mode. This mode allows the Fighter to soar at high altitudes, and the wing positions allow for the fighter to make dives at high speeds.
