This is what happens when you try to make a nose cone and end up with an engine block.
Based loosely on the Arwing from Star Fox.
The Roscoe. It started out as a Vic Viper but the nose ended up being the engine pod. I thought it looked like an Arwing engine, so that's where the whole thing ended up.
Roscoe Front. The nose ended up looking a little chunkier than I'd like, but it's a nose.
Roscoe, port side. This is where the whole "loosely-based" comes in, because Arwings are not that chubby at the end.
Roscoe rear. The chubby bit is supposed to be a built-in jump drive, only rated for intra-solar-system travel, with longer distances being handled by larger supporting craft. This would allow the Roscoe to operate without putting the carrier at risk.
Roscoe underside. The transparent blue bits are repulsor generators for terrestrial landings, because I have yet to engineer landing gear bits that don't look like someone stuck a chicken on the aircraft.
Since the engines and wings are on clicky joints, this allows the wings to tilt up and down, and the engine pods to maneuver accordingly. This Roscoe is in "GOTTA GO FAST" mode, as indicated by the low wings and tucked-in engine pods.
This Roscoe is banking, its wings and engine pivot points allowing for a sort of thrust vectoring. Also note the red/green/white identification lights on the wings and tail, although they may be hard to see.
Roscoe bank rear.
The Roscoe's chubbiness also is due to having to having an internal weapons bay, where the fighter stores explosive/kinetic ordinance.
Weapons bay open.
Plasma bombs. Small, in order to fit several into the fighter's bay, but able to pack a mean wallop on reinforced targets.
Roscoe engaging a target with its internal weapons.
Roscoe cockpit open. All information is fed directly into a HUD in the pilot's helmet, allowing the canopy to be made of reinforced armor instead of traditional armocrystal.
As an emergency measure, the Roscoe's cockpit block can be ejected from the rest of the aircraft. The cockpit block contains a spare power pack and a built-in life-support function to allow stranded pilots to survive until pick-up.
