Cerulean fighter: the Battleaxe
A heavy fighter designed for dogfighting and providing a screen for capital ships.
About this creation

The Cerulean Empire deployed the Battleaxe heavy fighter in 1147 PH (Post Hyperdrive). It's a gravity-field driven fighter with a maximum velocity of .8c and an acceleration limit of 700g.





The nose of the spacecraft mounts the guide rails for two Markham Fire Control "Thunder" Rail Cannons. A 5 kg torus of super-dense metal alloy is accelerated along the rail until it reaches .997c. The resulting impact is equivalent to 125 megatons of TNT. Mounted bilaterally along the nose are the forward gravity well generators.






The cockpit mechanism is locked into place with a protective hatch; the void space left by the closed cockpit doubles as storage for small objects; this allows the Battleaxe to be used as a courier for vital equipment and intelligence data.





The rear of the wing contains the aft gravity well generators, as well as outboard microfusion plants.






Pylons under the wings house four Carson Semiconductor medium-range antiradiation missiles, and two Forth Armaments long-range capital shipkiller missiles.






The landing gear struts and skids are designed to permit the craft to land on extremely uneven surfaces.



OOC Note: This is my first MOC that is truly and completely my own creation. I've actually been kicking this design around for the past couple of years, but I finally got it tweaked to the point where I feel comfortable releasing it to the world.

Quoting John Stahlman Very cool! I like the way you made the cockpit open. I may have to "borrow" this idea! ;-)
Feel free! It's why I threw the LDD instructions up here. :)
