About this creation

SF-92 Praetorian

Armarment:

-2 Fusion Cannons


-4 Fusion Missiles

-2 Counter Measure Flares

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.

   The Praetor has a look similar to the Veraiso, this was intentional. I wanted to create a set of fighter/bomber that looked like a pair.

   I think it looks like a sword hilt.

   For star wars fans, it also resembles the mix of a ep3 Jedi Interceptor with an x-wing.

   Sleek profile

   The engines took me a while, just going through various designs before finding the finals.

   More enginey goodness



Enlarge image
   I really tried for the look of the grey belly - the business area of the design.



Enlarge image
   Simple landing gear, I was never too great at landing gear so this is good for me.

   These are fuel tanks. I wish there was a way to connect them to the body without the big gap. There probably is, but I don't know it.

   Main thrsuters

   boosters

   Yay for decals! Federation Astro Corps emblem, and the squadron emblem appears to be a spade.



Enlarge image
   Jet intake warning. For better atmosphere use the engines are connected to jets as well as just being rockets.



Enlarge image
   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?



Enlarge image
   I played with the idea of two control sticks, but ultimatly the single stick seemed more Fighter-like, where as double screamed bomber or somesuch.



Enlarge image
   You can barely see it, but there is another control panel beneath the stick.

   The pilot, with g-suit/space suit and HUD visor on his helmet.

   Wings would be deployed like so when flying.

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.
