Scimitar Attack Fighter by Orpheus7 Scimitar Attack Fighter by Orpheus7
The Scimitar is a medium range attack fighter usually carried by assault carriers and was designed to be formidable both as a dogfighter and against capital targets.

Although it carries only a single pilot, its IP (inter-planetary) catapult allows it to cover vast distances within a solar environment quickly, allowing it to reach trouble spots or threats within hours, engage the enemy and return without the need for crew relief facilities.

The Scimitar's weaponry is finely balanced between an anti-fighter tac gun array and cap and ram weapons for use against larger targets. It also carries seeker launchers that can fire a wide range of homing ordnance.

Originally developed by OmniCorp for the Imperium and its own navies, the Scimitar has proven itself on numerous occasions, most notably in the First Banking War.

The thunderspear fighter is in the picture '' Freedom Two Niner ''
in my gallery.
It's not really mine as you'll see in the caption.
Hope you know I was just kidding around because the designs appeared similar.

Yeah, I know you were kidding. Your thunderspear is a nice looking ship, by the way. Great realism - it's the kind of fighter I hope we will actually see in space in a few decades or so - as soon as they start commercializing space.
