The Alliance's newest flying-egg-like aerospace/atmospheric fighter. This, of course, is my attempt to beat Gus Indo in a MOC-off.
About this creation
Hello fellow MOCer/viewer(s)! I'm hoping you read the introduction just above hear. This is my entry for Round-2 of the UNE 3rd Fleet vs. COP 3rd Fleet MOC OFF against Gus Indo. Well, the chances of beating him are slim to nothing but, hey, at least I gave it my best with the little I have, right? Any ways, heres a little...
The "TAF-100" means Tactical Assault Fighter. Although, it didn't start out that way. Originally, it was a Sports Air Car manufactured by Accelatron Motors, an Earth born company. The model did so well in efficiency, maneuvering, speed, and quality that the U.N.E. bought a large amount of the crafts and retrofitted them with better engines, tougher armor, light weaponry, a new cockpit design, and the casual red stripe.
-Build an atmospheric craft according to the U.N.E./C.O.P. theme.
Features(In greater detail):
Two light, repeating GUASS Tech rifles
Two Multi Function Engines (MFEs) including the following function modes: Flight, Afterburner, and Hover/Landing
Two smaller engines within the wings for better maneuverability
Includes a tow cable at the back to haul broken-down TAF units with a drop-ship or something to save as much as possible; These things aren't cheap, ya know!
Whatever else you can think of...

Attention!-This entry has sadly lost. :( Oh, well. I'll get 'em next time.
Well, I'm a bit surprised to say this, but I've actually gone with Gus for the competition. It was certainly a close call, but he also had a very clean MOC, with a very unique design. And in the end, I felt like he just edged you out on the complexity of the build.
