Filling the role of space superiority in the fighter class is the Trident. Extremely fast with an over sized engine and fuel supply it has often done its damage before defending fighters have even broken formation.
About this creation
Known for it's speed and firepower, the Trident sports a compliment of long range sensors and 4 heavy laser cannons. Common practice is to line up an attack run from outside the enemy's detection radius then blast through at enormous speeds picking off the chosen targets.
The Trident boasts the largest engines and fuel supply of any present fighter. Nearly double that of others. The trade off is the exposed fuel tanks at the rear. In an extended dogfight it is common to channel power to the rear shields as a single blast from even low level laser cannons could turn the Trident into an inferno.
If necessary the engines themselves can be targeted and jettisoned as makeshift anti-capital ship weapons. Usually this is immediately followed by a planned jump to warp as the ship is near helpless with only maneuvering thrusters remaining.
Dude, this is one underrated MOC...! :O
Ik looks very nice, sleek and solid. Cool engines, and all with all a nice back. Good job!

Ooo, I like this. It has a great classic space fighter feel and looks like a lot of fun to swoosh around. I also like how you coordinated the colors and paid attention to what pieces you were using where to make the most out of them. Keep up the good work!
very nice part grouping near the back. i also really like the engines too!! i think you should build an X-wing fighter off of star wars. if u build the X-wing like this one, it will be great. :) overall, WONDERFUL model!!
