About this creation
The Mrk 1 is designed to be a carrier/planet stationed fighter so it is thin and long with all its weapons systems slung under its cockpit. To make this light fighter strong enough to take on larger more powerful fighters Taylor Corp. equipped it with 3 shield generator/projector sets; one on and near the tail, and two others in-front of the cockpit. This angle also shows the over sized thruster.
From this angle you can see just how thin the fighter is. Also this gives you a good view of the weapons load out. The Mrk1 starfighter has a weapons load out of 4 missile tubes and a medium mrk5 typ2 plasma cannon. This is a fairly large weapon for such a small starfighter.
The cockpit is a very simple design it has a single of set joystick and a monitor.
Note: Simple does not mean weak a hud display makes the single monitor all you need
