The Duvaucelii-L11 Tactical Superiority Fighter is the result of a desperate need for a tougher, lighter, and more powerful fighter to combat the recent pirate and smuggler attacks all around Coalition Space, when teamed with an Ascension, these unorthodox fighters really pack a punch.
Although seemingly lightly armed, the Duvaucelii carries a high-impact rail-mounted cannon, as well as a slug-gauss gun, hidden inderneath the fore armor. The combination of speed, power, and maneuverability make this craft truly a force to reckon with.
Here we see its 4 powerful engines that give it its superior thrust, and its sensor fin (the Grey one in the middle), where it can track and scan up to 30 simultaneously moving targets at once. The heavily armored Fore section shrugs off almost every kind of blast imaginable, from energy weapon, to ballistic, to plasma, through its superior compression armor and its powerful shield matrix. Most of the workings of the ship are protected beneath the massive armored front. Here we see the Gauss Gun and the Rail Cannon, and all the workings required for keeping these massive weapons working. Here you can also see the front comms/sensor suite, as well at the secondary targeting and drive sensors, and the black heat sink fins for each weapon. The pilot makes use of the most advanced and powerful in holographic displays and neural-linked control systems, allowing for flawless control of this amazing fighter.
Hey, I built something. Horay!
Built in about 6 hours of total work, 4 on one day, 2 on the next.

A complete departure from your Dragon's Lair (did you need a break after arranging all that lava?) but equally impressive. The look just reminds me of side-scrolling shoot-em-ups and I love the engine array and hidden greebling. Good stuff.
If you add ANY more greeble bits and weapon fuddunkudunks, SOMEBODY is going to grab a spoon, and stab a person named Kevin to death. Who knows who the killer and this so-called "Kevin" might really be? Hmm? Anyone?(great job by the way!)
Sleek and deadly this fighter is! Good thing it's a cop ship; Nova tells me she'd hate to have to go up against one of these babies! I really like the styling. (Looks like I'm gonna have to start on some upgrades for the Scorpion,too. It's a thirty year old design!)
