Above...a design for an
Assault fighter, the Thunderstar. This craft is intended as a fast
strike, hit and run fighter. It has 4 h.p. pulse cannons mounted
on it's wings, two more ( aft fireing ) under it's engines,
with the added protection of a ball-turrett above. Add
to this, an interchangable assortment of missiles and bombs
that it can carry.
The craft also has
an improvement in it's basic aero package...Swing wings. In standard
space flight, these wings are folded back as they are not
needed, but for atmospheric runs, they shift forward for better
lift. The fighter is designed for two people in the cockpit,
and one more in the turrett.
