It's been a while since I posted a spacecraft. Enjoy my first stab at a bomber!
About this creation
Futuristic Space Ship entry (RDF)
Hey there y'all. Just a quicky for now. More photos will be added later.
The DE 107 has been in service for over 20 years, yet it's sleek aerodynamics and moderate payload have kept this thing in the fighting ring like a stubborn mule. No one really can complain, either. It's just a good, solid, low cost bomber. Yes, you heard right. BOMBER.
The bomber is technically an attacker: a ship with capital guns and moderate payload. It also has a small mortar launcher, two med. range "static gatlings," and two small bomb bays. It can be equipped with a drop bomb on the exterior. The flaps to the bomb bays also serve as landing gear on land or when the payload is empty. It uses magnetism to levitate on the Hangar Bay.
First seen in the war against the Gattacca space yards, the bomber was used either to slam the front of the ships head on or to dive on the ships from above. Much like the original, the Dauntless 2 hit 4 carriers and 14 destroyers. It's also credited with the crippling of the yards.
It's baptism by fire came when a stray UNE break-away attacked a fleet on the ground. 400 ot of the 490 survived to return the favor.
Overall, DE is pleased with the bomber. It's shape was refined to make the 106 and 105, in that order.
Love the generics idea that Peter Morris came up with.
