I am relatively new here. I started playing Diaspora a few months ago.
During my time here in the community I read a post (don't remember where) of someone wanting a new plane in game.
When I looked at some photo's of WWII and Vietnam era planes I got the idea to make a sort of dive bomber.
After some sketching I came up with the Viper Mk II B, with B for Bomber.
This plane should have a similar role to the WWII Variant.
This is a quick photoshop sketch of the layout of the fighter (please don't comment on my skills in photoshop, it is not my best skill).
It could have fought in the first cylon war. Being a strike weapon and not so much a fighter, it has a turret which houses 2 or 4 .50 cal MG's and has 2 forward fixed 30 mm KEW's and multiple hardpoints underneath the hull and wings.
This fighter is not so manoeuvrable and fast as the regular Mk II but has more armor and a defensive turret.
This fighter is limited FTL-capable for quick hit and run strikes.
This is a LONG term project for me, as I am a busy person who has just learned the basics of modelling in blender.
I want to ask you people if you are interrested in a ship like this and wish to hear from me from time to time.
Or if you want me to (crudely said) shut up till I have something decent to show.
This way I can determine if I should release it when I have it ready.
Please tell me what you think.
