A Proof-of-concept cyborg fighter inspired by Brian Herbert's "Battle of Corrin" and Jango Fett's Slave I. 'Twas built around the nose.
About this creation
This fighter started out as an experiment in building types of turrets. I built this wonderful turret with eight missiles that would swing out from the sides. There was room between the missiles for a computer and a hinge and rotational device that would let you set it up on the deck of a battleship to blast your opponents away. I had been reading Brian Herbert's Dune: Battle of Corrin that week , and thought, "This would look great on an update ship!" I tried to build an update ship, and it looked really crappy because I had limited numbers of black pieces. Also, I had no clue what an update ship looked like, except that it was a "sleek black and silver" ship. The attempt was decidedly not sleek. So, I removed the crew compartment and fashioned this thing. Please enjoy. I expect for every X ratings there to be X reviews, where X is a real number greater then 0.
This is the real feature of the device: When the ship lands, it falls on its back, like the various Slave incarnations. However, the missiles remain pointed more-or-less foreward, pervect for shooting at things while the engines are still warming up for that getaway boost. Why anyone would be chasing a fighter driven by a pickled brain is beyond me.
The missiles expand for firing. That was really the main feature of the original missile-turret.
The other weapons, top-to-bottom (it's symmetrical): Eyeballs, cooling fins, gun tube, larger gun tube, bombs, auxiliary bomb racks.
I neglected to put obvious engines on this thing, so maybe it's gravitically-powered.
Since I can hear you people begging me for the hinge, here it is:
That's correct. The whole missile assembly is held on by one old bendy non-click-hinge. The main purpose of the extra 2 missiles is to cover up the gap.
