STAR WARS 'STARJAMMER' LONG RANGE TACTICAL ASSULT FIGHTER
About this creation
The Starjammer is a medium weight long distance tactical assualt vessel which normally carries a crew compliment of two.
This usually consists of a pilot and a navigator but the ship can be manned by a lone operator thanks to its onboard UNEX navicom system.
Reminicent of the designs of spacecraft from the late 1950's, The Starjammer pays homage to Flash Gordon, whose ships always had a very sleek and almost sportscar appeal about them.
The ship is equipped with a full set of AT landing gear that retracts into the main fusilage and an extra wide retractable cargo ramp is fitted at the rear.
The starjammer is capable of carrying limited quantities of cargo but as the ship is often used for boundry patrols, the cargo is usually provisions for the crew.
The armament of the Starjammer is fair but not excessive. she is equipped with a pair of ion lasers under the frontal fusillage that have a range of 360 fire and two pairs of photon laser blasters mounted on the upper hull and nose section.
The starjammer is also equiped with two radial EMP distortion baffles that can jam radio, sublight and encoded transmittions within a radius of 60km around the ship. It is this unique feature that earnt the ship the name 'Starjammer'.
She is powered by an ISODYNE 3700 Magnetomic accelerator drive (pictured) that feeds the two MACHYNTYRE Z-Axis thermionic coil turbines.
Very nice fighter there, Bob. Those engine nacelles look very sleek. Good color scheme except for a few little areas (like the purple on the engines. Love the cockpit design! I always like ships who's interier isn't just nothing but a pilot seat with controls but has a bit of walking space. The greeblies on the nose of the ship aren't very good though, they look like an internal combustion engine. Just somthing to work on, but on the overall, awsome ship!
