    Designers were running short of ideas. The basis was to:

    “Improve on the ageing CB2000 design, add more dakka, and make it smaller.”

    One designer was on a vacation in Europa, far away from combat areas. He saw a crashed ship, and thought the prow looked interesting. He presented his design to the board, and they liked it.

    Here is the cockpit so sharp it breaks ice, and your self worth.

    Sporting 3 hardpoints on each side, this design is either a support or heavy cockpit.

    what’s wrong? Too long? Too crowded?

    Alright, here’s a shorter version, with the guns less spaced out and relatively aligned this time!

    Oh, here’s another version, that is less crowded
