Four Valkyrie class fighters dock two to a side on the Gothica. They are the short range fighters of the attack force and are normally deployed in pairs to keep the main vessel better balanced for maneuvers.
Weapons folded in landing position.
Small ships, mostly cockpits with guns and an engine!
Most Valkyrie pilots are female as the ships are hard to fly and require a lot of multitasking during combat.
Bah, your flood of creation posts is pushing my recent model off the front page! I'd be mad if I didn't love looking at your stuff so much. These fighters could be bigger to do the name more justice, but they're still pretty neat. Good job. BTW, to the Topsy guy below me: There are also craft called "Valkyrie" in Freelancer, Star Trek, Macross/Robotech, and even in real life (it was a supersonic bomber that never went into production). I know because I'm obsessed with valkyries. :-P
