HF-189 Maccus
Getting back into the swing of spacecraft with this new swoosh-y heavy fighter.
About this creation
The Maccus is a new heavy fighter from Flicker Shipyards. It uses two synchronized gauss cannons mounted underneath the fuselage to pound away at enemy armor. Though it is reasonably manueverable and useful in a dogfight, its most fulfilling role is penetrating the armor plating of larger ships.

I tried to come up with a new technique for the Maccus. I don't know if it's actually "new" per se, but it is almost entirely SNOT construction with the exception of the inner cockpit area. I really like how smooth it turned out.

As RGF said, add another two gauss cannons and you have got a heavy fighter. Maybe some missiles too... Either way, it looks pretty good. Very clean ship too.

Quoting andros tempest I can see why you refer to it as a "heavy fighter", considering how it appears to be mostly armour rather than the sleek lines one associates with a light fighter. However I agree with rabid goldfish that I'd expect the "heavy" to relate to weaponry, therefore I'd expect more visible fire power. If the guns were more numerous the name would fit. But then you would loose some of the wonderful smooth lines.
That does seem to be the general consensus, LOL! Thanks for the sdvice and the comment. I think maybe an update for the Maccus in the future.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Nice clean design and well built. Though I wouldn't really consider this a Heavy fighter, being that it seems a little small and under armed. I would consider this a medium fighter, and with some modification, it would also make a good superiority fighter. For Heavy, you should add some torpedos, either external mount, or perhaps enlarge the hull a bit. But that's all just my opinion. Truth is, this is a great build! ^Blub^
Thanks for the input! I will take what you've said into consideration. I really appreciate the constructive comments!
