HAFT fighter. . Taliarn Heavily Armed Flying Transport .
Here's the Taliarn HAFT fighter, Heavily Armed Flying Transport.
This is a multi use craft, most often used to transport troops, also doubles as a recovery craft or attack fighter. It's heavily armed, with two heavy rocket pods, two nose mounted light guns, a rapid-fire gun on one side, and two rocket tubes on the other, for taking out ground targets, so ready for any task.
Powered by two huge Titan Engines, this is a quite fast and manuverable ship.

I just want to say I don't particularly like this new system, hard to know where to put the words that correspond to the pics, but oh well, here it is. Note the tail cannon, for keeping of enemy attackers.
Here's the pilot, very well trained to take on this craft, and the missions tasked to him. Nice control detail as well.
Ah, the rocket tubes. These highly powerful launchers can be used to destroy almost any land craft or base from a long way away with devastating smart missiles. Next to the tubes is a bulletproof shield, to protect the people inside, and when landed, they fold out and serve as a ramp to the ground.
Here's the side view. It has a radar dish on top, for communication, and detecting enemy craft.
I know it looks a little like a Republic Gunship, but this was entirely unintended. Notice the rocket pods on the smaller set of wings.
Here's a closeup, with the rapid fire cannon and the other shield/ramp.
Here's the top. As usual with Taliarn military machines, they have a slight overheating problem, and thus an extensive cooling system. Here's the aforementioned radar dish.
I like the overall appearence of the HAFT, it turned out pretty well.
It took me about twelve hours to design and build, with several remakes when the top kept breaking, but now it's really sturdy. I will take more pics soon.
Mocpages didn't give me enough pics to show the landing gear properly, but I will change that and show them soon.
Thanks for the high ratings and reviews, everyone!
