The Munin (the Norse word for "Memory", and one of the 2 ravens that brought news from around the world to Ordin) is the bomber equivalent of the Hugin light fighter. This is my first and so far only Xarkon MOC but I've been playing with the design since before I knew Nova Refuge existed.
Ah the side, this is the view you would get if you were a Hugin pilot nice enough to fly escort for this nearly defenceless thing.
The very simple engines, nough said.
Ah, the other side. You know what I said about it being nearly defenceless? I wasn't kidding! I mean you have no weapons other than missiles and sure you could try and shoot a fighter down with one but that is very had to do and you only have so many. you don't stand a chance if you get hit eather. you have no shelds and your armer won't even stop a small pebble.
This is what Xarkon is all about! It has a realistic number of weapons for a fighter of that size, and has a resembelance to the Hugin. It looks like a support ship, like it would help the Hugins take down fighters. For small bombing missions it could use Hugin escorts. Great work!

You did such a nice job on this that at first I was going to give you a 1 for stealing pictures, until I realized that this is an original creation. It looks exactly like something Justin would build. Awesome ship, it goes perfectly with the Xarkon faction. You even incorporated the crown motif into the shape!
