Regarded as the "Ford Mustang" of the Eastern Orbital Fleet. Too bad it's British.
About this creation
The GBR-102 is a no-nonsense close-combat brawler. Wanted a smooth, easy day of patrolling the outer atmospheric borders? Hell no. The GBR-102 is guaranteed to ruin any pilot's day, any time, any where. Scout ships beware, this beast is heavily armored, outfitted with two massive (GBR)Walker-Eissler 2100 Ion Engines, and has a .70 caliber auto cannon nearly longer than the cockpit itself. A true monster on the battlefield and on the racetracks. (racing versions sold by the subdivision of Cydion Defense Inc., CCY AeroWorks.)
Using a revolutionary new touch HUD, pilots are now able to keep their cockpits uncluttered and have controls literally at their fingertips. As if the ship itself didn't go fast enough (speeds exceeding Mach 6) the two vents at the bottom help keep the engine extremely cool so it can go even faster! Maybe not that exciting, but still!
The GBR-102 "Bulldog" has gone through a lot since its introduction into the EOF in 2106, including 4 years of tactical interventions in the Tibetan Occupation War (E)(2107-2111) and the Alta Terra Disruption (M)(2122-2128). It has proved itself as being one of the most notorious hard-hitters of the EOF, as it is able to withstand multiple blows as it guns down enemies with is massive six-barreled .90 caliber auto cannon from every direction, and even melees enemy ships off the combat zone. With 50,000 in service and and a total record of 3,000 kills, it's no wonder the Bulldog is a highly useful and a highly dependable fighter.

I'd have to say I really surprised myself when I built this. I was known as a sub par builder of mecha in the early days, but ever since moving on to spacecraft i've realized i'm really good at it. I did really outdo myself this time and this is probably the best creation i've made yet.
I would've supplied a ton of more weapons and some undershots but it was too fragile (ironically) to do. Maybe later i'll post some undershots and tack on more weapons when I have the time.

Really unusual shaped ship - i like a lot! The gattling gun is awesome too. Excellent color choice - thumbs up!
Thank you for the comment! The shape is achieved by two 1x4 pivoted plates (I think) and two sloped plates and tacking it on to the main plate which makes up the bottom skeleton of the ship. It's all held up by hinges as far as I know, with only a few "solid" parts. It was meant to really be a streamlined ship with an hourglass like shape. However as I progressed I liked the bulkiness of the ship, so I elaborated to that. However, I felt that it should be a lot shorter than it is now, but I decided to keep it that way. It is a fairly odd design, as you said. :)
