I was never a fan of my own Spectre, and after Tom posted his Moonshine, I was in the need to build a new fighter that was to my own liking and built by me. Inspiration comes from Tom's moonshine, my own Veraiso, and concept art of some Soviet-Space fighter. This came to the Federation after intial engagments with Spartinian fighters made it clear that the Spectre was over matched. They designed and built something that looked like a fighter version of the sucessful Veraiso bomber. The Praetorian - or sometimes shortened to the Praetor - first saw service with a Federation attack on IR posistions well within Terran Space, it was proven worthy shortly afterwards in a battle against the Spartinians at the planet Emperius.
Ze controls. Probably one of the areas I built first, without the bulk shape of the fighter. I found I was always making the cockpit too small when I built it near the end...so why not form the ship around the cockpit?
Very nice. I love the engines and weapons. And the flow from the cockpit down the rest of the ship. The fuel tanks bug me as well. I want them to be gapless! ;-) Very well built. I'm loving each ship you produce more than the last.
