The "Mutdang" Fighter is a single-seat, light weight, multi-purpose, mass-produced aerospace fighter for the Commonwealth Peace Keeping Forces.
About this creation
The "Mutdang" Aerospace Superiority Fighter
Whilst Jozcorp Industries was focusing on building aerospace craft, such as the Elwood Shuttle and the now defunct CarryAll program, to help mobilize the Commonwealth's Peace Keeping Forces, engineers and executives of an allied organisation addressed the need protect assets in the air and in space.
With the advanced technology of the Aerospace Drive Pod the allied organisation presented the base design to the Commander In Chief of the CPKF. At the time it was called the "Gemini Fighters". The CPKF commanders were quite impressed with what they saw in its design and how the two prototypes performed. The first words mumbled at the unveiling was "Mutdang" - meaning: "Very Very Impressive - we'll take it please".
The new name stuck from that moment onwards.
"...it's light weight... ...maneuverable - check out them thrusters... and seemingly cheap to produce..."
"...the colour scheme was right... ...we have some components already...."
They were black.
"...flies into the air AND space!"
The Mutdang Fighter gives CPKF Flight Groups protection and an edge in the air and
performance in space. It's versatility allows it to operate offensively and defensively with a wide range. More importantly it accommodates it's pilot quite comfortably.
"...I can sit up, read the avionic systems, look out the window, rest my head and sing along to White Lines..."
"...the add-on potential was jaw-dropping..." Jozcorp engineers were very impressed as the prototype demonstrated an assault system called "Harvest". This particular system was never made for CPKF. The main production line (blue canopies) is fitted with what is simply called Primary Assault Load Out (PALO) which is an integrated weapon system that has dual power sourcing capacities (on the weapons themselves and from the energy in the Aerospace Drive Pod).
Two other variants (II & III) are in service at Cameron Base, as well as a monument.
The single seat Mutdang Fighters continue to perform aerospace support across all CPKF arenas. It has shown effective air-ground support for the Rangers and co-ordinated actions with Fatso APC's, air-space support for the marines, aerospace support for the Arky Skylighter...
Space Police & Origins
The base design stemmed from an evolved Space Police Galactic Peace Keeper (set 6886, released 1989).
Co-incidence with the name of the 6886. I just called it the Space Police Prison Pod
ship when I was growin' up.
My allied organization cut all the blue bits out of it, made it black slapped an
engine cylinder pod on the back and slimmed it down with some SNOT building.
