The "Stratus" Tactical Aerospace Fighter is a small, lightweight, and highly maneuverable craft designed for strike operations. It is constructed on the standard Karic Light Starburst Frame, which makes it considerably rugged for its size. Its primary armament is a recoilless rotary cannon in an underslung gunpod, and a standard payload of four AI-guided missiles. The fighter is also capable of folding, conserving storage space.
The variant displayed here is piloted by Reina Cloude. Her Direct Neural Interface allows the fighter to react as fast as her mind can, giving her a definite edge in combat. The fighter is generally stored upside-down (relative) inset in the "Cirrus" rear dorsal surface.
Folded for docking:
Here's a good shot showing the gunpod and missiles.
I made sure to cram some greebs in behind the cab:
Here's a detail shot of the engine. I'm quite happy with its triaxial layout.
And of course, a shot inside the cab, also showing that it comfortably fits a fig.
So yeah. I finally posted a MOC. Took me long enough.
Very nice. I like the use of colors. All though the gun pod to me looks a little outta place. It sortta looks too square. I wouldn't mind a chaingun style though. And the colors are great! Over all. 5/5
