Centaur Fighter by Orpheus7 Centaur Fighter by Orpheus7
An older concept for a fighter - yep, another one. It's point was to see how a small fighter ship would look with its engines and weapons situated well forward of the cockpit. Well, now I know.

Is that a turret on the rear of her? If so, sneaking up on her is gonna be painful for the other birds.

Also if this were a star wars craft, I'd say it mounted
2 x Fire-Linked Rapid-fire Laser Cannons
1 x Rapid-Fire blaster cannon
1 x Turret mounted Twin Rapid-Fire Blaster Cannon
2 x Twin Fire-Linked Heavy Laser or Light Turbolaser Cannons
2 x 4-Barrel Fire-Linked Light Rapid-Fire Blaster Cannons or 4-Tube Missile Launchers 

Then I'd classify her as a Heavy Fighter designed for swatting away the heavier craft and decimating Bomber formations

It has 4 heavy cannons on the wings, along with 6 dogfight missile launchers, 2 cannon in the nose and single-barreled gun in the turret behind the pilot. It doesn't have any capital weapons, so it would be best suited to anti-fighter or asteroid emplacement attack action. However, it's open to interpretation.

Damn. This thing looks like the Naboo Royal starfighter after a lifetime of steroid abuse. Awesome!

Reminds me of the Naboo fighters from Star Wars. Very good design though. I see an aero-space fighter capable of in-atmo flying as well as short range recon or even dog-fights in space.
Good design.
