Re: Fighters from the show Caprica [WARNING: SPOILER ALERT]
the silly part is that the nose is like a p-40 in shape, but it doesn't have a prop, just the cone.
that just looks weird, I'd rather they went with a full-on sabre nose.

Vought F-8 Crusader:


course "the Gunfighter" is a considerable foxier bird then those seen on Caprica.

I never knew about this plane, and I thought I knew a fair bit.
still looks silly though, but its nice to see there was a real inspiration for it.

Never heard of the crusader? Blasphemy! Kids these days.. Meanwhile I've been screaming about the caprica fighter looking like an awkward blend of the crusader and a hornet since they first showed it :P

I don't know if the "Viper" in that Caprica episode was meant to represent an aircraft used by Clonial Forces or whether it was meant to only represent a simulated aircraft in their V-World, a bit like the weird fighters in  a PC based computer game that was around about a decade ago (I can't remember its name, never having played it, but it involved airships and odd fighters with strange engine and flight surface configurations, all acting as aerial pirates if I recall it correctly).  In fact, I suspect that game was the inspiration behind the aircraft and airships in the  V-World Caprica City, too.

Sounds like you're referring to Crimson Skies, in which case I'm inclined to agree.

That's the one!  Of course, there was a fair chance someone would know what i was talking about, being a gaming site and all, but well done for deciphering my vague description.  :nod:

It looks like a purely atmospheric fighter, but my question was,was it designed for the V-world game play or is it a V-World representation of a "real" Colonial fighter?  It was referred to as a Viper, but that may just be their society's general term for a fighter aircraft, so there seems little indication of whether it is just a V-world thing or not.  Either way, it's damned ugly!

That's what I've been saying since the episode with the thing aired. Looks like an unfortunate mix of a hornet and a crusader. Both planes are cool enough but this hybrid is fugly.

Re: Fighters from the show Caprica [WARNING: SPOILER ALERT]
Weird is fine, but this thing looks totally uninspired. Like they just threw a bunch of various **** together into one thing. I can understand it however since it's not like fighters play that big a role in Caprica. Entirely possible we'll never see it again. I just kinda miss the awesome designs, like the viper mk2.

Not to mention F18 dorsal spine, F15 airbrake and F4 canopy, intakes and upside-down, back-to-front wings.  It's lIke a 10 year old kit-bashing plastic model kits!  Please don't put it in the mod!

Oh, it's well beyond a 10-year-old kitbash, but it's still a kitbash.

...And yes, it's quite uninspired.  :P
