D.A.2 - 'Limelight' Jet Fighter [fighter]
The Limelight Jet Fighter (LJF) is a development and acquisition program intended to replace a wide range of existing fighter, strike, and ground attack aircraft for Tequilatron. The LJF fleet is agile, swift, all-purpose and accurate. Based in India, its reach is planetary, running tactical missions and responding to threats where the opportunity arises.
About this creation
Decisive Action 2 Category 7: Fighter

A mere novelty at the beginning of WWI, Air Power was regarded as an indispensable military capability before the start of WWII. When denying an attacker the use of airspace over your nation, or supporting your offensive operations on the ground, fighter aircraft are one of the most precious commodities a field commander has at his disposal. In DA2 this capability is represented by your Fighter MOC. Your Fighter MOC must comply with all of the following 5 specifications:


1. The Fighter MOC must hold an entire minifig in the pilot compartment. No “head only” crews. If the pilot is not fully visible when the fighter is assembled, then you will have to provide an “exploded” view which allows us to see the pilot in there with both arms, both legs, and his whole torso.
2. The Fighter MOC must have at least ONE gun or missile type weapon visible.
3. The Fighter MOC must include a flag emblem somewhere in the design. The size and placement of the flag is left up to the player.
4. The Fighter MOC must be shown on the ground, and resting on landing gear.
5. The Fighter MOC must be a jet, no propeller driven engines.

Attention in the Ready Room…The rules for the third iteration of Decisive Action have just been posted in the DA3 Ready Room. We built the Ready Room so motivated competitors could study the DA3 rules and gain understanding before the game begins on 7 April 2018. Well, the rules are now posted. So report to the Ready Room. Get the information, get your head in the game, and above all… get ready. Build! Post! Review! Attack! This is Decisive Action.

Hey Tim, thanks for taking a peek :D All true, that's exactly the angle I was lookin for. Stay tuned, I've got his chopper buddy launching tomorrow!
Quoting Tim C Love it. This ship is a nice marriage between sci-fi and what exists in our skies now. It makes me think of what a Harrier would look like if Syd Mead got his hands on one. I like the color choices on this and the heavy weaponry mounted on the wings. Nice work getting that subtle angling through the middle. A stellar job as always, Pico.

Right on! Thnx Damon. It turned out just the way I wanted and sketched beforehand. Posing it and photographing it was fun. Fitting the landing gear into the belly was a bit of fiddling around but I'm glad how it came together in the end.
Quoting Damon Corso Excellent work pico, this is a gem buddy. The shaping is gorgeous, and all the little details make this puppy shine! I dig the cockpit build and your hidden landing gear is sweet as heck! Nice job

I understand my province is luring, people here are happy drunk all the time! I see other potential ways out for you though, so I'll take this request with a grain of salt (we are used to that). So, do as you please general, enjoy a few shots of tequila while you're at it. But keep in mind I will be the next one to 'force you out' once you come too close :D
Quoting Zach Lucia Greetings General Grootveld! I'm currently being forced out of my starting residence in EA24 by another builder, and I wish to avoid elimination. My only escape route that will safely get me away from my enemy is EA28, which is right next to your residence. If you will let me take up a short residence (for only one week, then I'll move on and you can take EA28 from me), I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you! ~Zach

Its really nice to see a General who takes his time and produces such outstanding MOCs. Your models are a pleasure to review and the presentation is by far the best in the group. General, you are specifications accurate and ready to dominate the air-space. Although I doubt you need it, I wish you good luck in turn 2.

It's crazy how the Raptor and JSF are alike. Except for the single vs double jet exchausts, they look quite the same. Not sure if I'll kick anyone's shin with this statement :D Glad this could be of inspirational value! Thanks for popping by Stephan
Quoting Stephan Niehoff What a Modern Jet. as a further development of the Raptor. I especially like the rear twin rudder. Your stickers give the whole an authentic look. And with the weapons I would also not have to mess with this jet. These smaller (I call them wings) are also a great idea. A really good and inspiring work my friend,

If only my collection would allow it! Maybe this christmas :D I never heard that song! I can so imagine this as the background music in a video of this fighter roaming the sky, so fitting! A bit like Topgun, haha. Thanks for the comment and the like.

Quoting VAkkron ™ This is one of the simplest builds I've yet seen from you, but probably one of my favorites for it. These look like easy-to-maintain, friendly-to-fly, heck-to-tangle-with vessels that fit perfectly into your growing fleet. I just love those shadows.
