P.C.S. S.P.O.T.
Small Planet to Orbit Transport
About this creation
The S.P.O.T. was created in response to PCS demands for a small shuttlecraft designed to carry cargo and passengers between planetary surfaces and orbiting stations or spacecraft. Pilots praised the small spacecraft's high thrust-to-mass ratio and maneuverability, and soon the little ship was seeing frontline service as an armed drop transport for P.C.S. Marines.


Top view. It looks a little bit like the Classic-Space logo ship, and I might have entered it in the logo contest had I been able to build it when the contest was held.






Side view. The ship is armed with a light FRAP cannon on a turret and two heavier FREEM cannons installed on the sides. Two small rockets are loaded under the wing hardpoints, but missile support is usually provided by fighters or S.P.O.T.s with missile packs installed in place of the heavy guns.








Aft. The ship's huge engines provide immense thrust at the cost of poor fuel capacity. Flying in rocket mode at full acceleration for a mere 30 minutes will drain the ship's tanks.






Underside, showing the undergreebs and 3 VTOL thrusters.






Side detail.




Cockpit view. The S.P.O.T.'s controls are relatively simple and it has also seen widespread use as a flight trainer.

I've just noticed how awesome the side view is. This one could be a "Space Police III" set with a few modifications. So good, once again - Hope you're building some new MOCs, and thanks for your reviews and clever advices :-)

Great overall design. The engines at the back look the best... plenty of POWER.

It's been a while Ben! The multitude of angles really create a nice shape and those white cockpit pieces are so awesomely implemented: I love how you tucked half of the engines under them. I could go on.. and will because I have to complement your undergreebs and color blocking! Great work!

Great looking ship! The technique you used for the engines is incredible, it even looks good from below!

Yes, you're back into action ! Glad to see a new ship here. This one is brilliant, could be a model for a new space line. I can decide if I prefer the clean cockpit design, or the very uncommon and clever design of the back section. Greebles, shape, colors : nice in every way !!!
