The combined influences of SSUN (Sol System United Navy) were charged with the development of a new Multirole Fighter that's not only suitable for deployment as a Zero gravity attack platform but also up to the vigors of atmospheric missions. The X-03 Helios was the result of this joint effort. Armed with the newest weapons, this platform is able to attain a true multirole rating.
Manoeuvrable enough for ship to ship combat with the latest in combination mounted armaments, the sustained plasma beam coupled with a 20mm machine gun which can be fired in either combined or selectable modes. When it comes to ship to ship fighting the Helios carries the latest generation of holographic guided technology in the MK60 Meteor Missile.
When it comes to either Air to ground or Capital Ship busting the new attack platform can also carry a couple of GBU-109's, now rated for longer range attacks, (actual distance currently classified). SSUN has chosen this platform to also debut the new MK1 MDC(Mass Driver Autocannon); little is known about this weapon but is rumored to be a very effective weapon against Capital Ships and entrenched gound based positions.

This is my 1st attempted at a proper slide to open cockpit canopy.

I've updated the file to address the error I didn't notice earlier. I had to tweak the greebling to address this as LDD allowed for the placement of the microphone/tap connection I made but would remove the tap when reloading the file. this section of the greebling has been completely revamped and is now error free.
