My first upload in a good few years. Feels great to be back.
This is an Assegai-class interceptor used by the Europa Free Squadrons and later the Frontier Militias during the Banker Wars circa 2565ET. The Assagai was designed by Colling Truward and built by the Europa Colony Authority to defend themselves against the banking fleets sent to confiscate their colony. The design turned out to be extremely effective and the went on to inspire many later classes of fighter. Armed with a single ram gun in the nose (the first small ship to be so outfitted), four dogfight weapons in the stub wings and a rapid-fire missile bay in the belly, the Assegai was also highly maneuverable with all four of its drives being able to rotate to allow the pilot to execute almost unheard of maneuvers. Its hull was covered in cera-plate armour and it carried a modified diffusion shield that made it as tough as nails to boot. All-in-all, a classic.
