About this creation
---Background---




The X20-Tornado is the signature fifth generation starfighter of the Royal Space Fleet. Its unorthodox "diamond-wing" design gives this fighter an enormous amount of structural strength.
This in turn enables it to pull off some impressive acrobatics even after taking heavy damage.
The wings also provide a large surface area for the fighter's cooling systems.




The X20-Tornado has gained prestiege and respect after Squadron-42
of the RSF successfully destroyed a much larger Reptiloid raiding fleet during the Battle of Palodine at Earth Colony 15.




---Construction---




I thought I'd give this SNOT stuff a go, I was really inspired by the shape of the containers of a transport on NeutronBot and I wanted to use that shape as a pair of wings.

Very nice! I love its unique shape. The nose needs a little work but, overall, great job

Nice Model! I'd personally take off the nose of the ship altogether - it looks out of place. Wings are really nice, and the colors are fairly rebellionesque.
