Borderworld Series Z "Sabre" Very Heavy Fighter V 2.0
Version 2.0 of my Freelancer very heavy fighter "Sabre".The Borderworld Series Z Sabre Very Heavy Fighter is the best fighter in the Borderworld ships lineup. It is also the fighter that boasts the maximum amount of forward firepower. I like the way it turned out. Please rate it!
About this creation
As commerce and some economic freedoms began to flood the Border Worlds, so did greater access to technology and the need for change. The "Z" is the fruit of Border World ingenuity and pure capitalism coalesced into one lethal embodiment. This ship boasts enormous power capacity as well as extreme defensive capability.

Information

This is the only Level 10 VHF with a forward-firing turret. This gives the Sabre essentially 7 guns when dogfighting, the most available on any player-flyable ship.

While it has better armor and more offensive firepower than the CTE-6000 Eagle, it is not as manouverable. The Sabre has the least weight of the VHF-s. With the latter fact combined with a greater strafe rate, the Sabre has the fastest acceleration and side thrusting abilities. However, its turning speed is relatively low and is surpassed by the Eagle. This makes it less desireable for multiplayer games when the player wishes to fight other human players. However, if the player wishes to fight only NPCs in either single or multiplayer games, it is arguably the best ship in the game.

The same new nose design as on the "Dagger" and the "Stiletto".


The "Nomad Energy Cannon" and "Silver Fire" can be seen in this view.


Improved engine design...




...the grille of the engine is now actually inside it.






The pole connecting the extra engine pod with the main body lost one brick in height.


Cargo hold opened.


The closed door to the cargo hold holds the only sticker used on this ship.
Iīve cut it from a jedi starfighter wing panel sticker.


A closer look at "Nomad Energy Cannon" and "Silver Fire".


New cannon with no name - by now.

Quoting El Barto ! Friggin' deadly! It's got some GAIA elements to it. New episode, Chief!
In fact it is from a computer game, but it fits Parrington's GAIA stuff. And that's the reason why he asked me to join GAIA!

Quoting Stephan Schumann Why its called sabre? Chainsaw would decribe the weaponary better. The different canons are real great. I like the use of several transparent-coloured bricks. But the silver-thing i like most. Magnificant art-work!
Much appreciated! The weapons were really fun to make, my favourite is the Nomad Cannon, btw.

Quoting Brody Allen I am not familiar with the freelancer game but the ships are very cool. All your builds are well done with a very keen attention to detail. I am a huge fame o the weaponry. In my own creations I am a firm believer of the more weapons the better. "Speak softly but carry a big stick"
Thank you. In the game, the weapons looked kinda lame so I wanted to spice them up a little.

Quoting Alan Crisp ppfftt, I fly the Titan fighter from the Corsairs myself. Which you have inspired me to maybe building here soon. Your Sabre, while arguably NOT the best fighter from Freelancer, is still a rockin MOC.
Well, I prefer the Sabre. We could argue endlessly about the best ship in Freelancer, which is only a matter of taste in the end. Besides that, thank you for your comment and build the Titan! Iīd really like to see how it turns out.
