Ten Arch class fighter dock five to a side on the Gothica. They are the long range fighters of the attack force and are narmally deployed in pairs to keep the main vessel better balanced for maneuvers.
There are ten Arch fighters in total.
When used together they kick ass!
The rocket blaster pods fold up for docking.
And unfold for flight.
Large engines make the Arch fighters fast.
High visibility cockpits allow good pilot response even in sensor jamming areas.
Not the prettiest things in space though...
From the side.
Each pilot wears a uniform that corresponds to his fighters colour. Let's meet them:
Jeroen Van Dam
Dougie Bader (more machine then man - following a bad crash Bader's body was rebuilt from cybernetic parts.)
Once upon a time I was trying to build a large ship that featured ten little drone fighters in different colors that docked in the midsection... and then I came across the Gothica on Brickshelf. I think I began tearing my ship apart the next day. Not only had you beaten me to the idea, you'd done it better than I ever could have.
