'Bulldog' FX-10 Heavy Fighter

The FX-10 'Bulldog' is a heavy-duty fighter employed by the Veczites, a malevolent and violent race. The Bulldog is optimized for destruction, with two light blasters, two heavy particle cannons, a concussion-bomb dispenser, and twin torpedo tubes. It is also heavily armored and durable and will last infuriatingly long in any engagement.

This is my entry for Peter's Starfighter Contest.

Full gallery here.

I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Amazing like always, but I absolutely hate that cockpit. Everything else is so smooth, but that bubble juts out in a really un-coordinated way.

That's an average star fighter at best. A heavy star fighter would be something like the ARC-170 or whatever. This one is much too small.

Well, I normally have a tendency to build all my fighters very small. For me, this seemed like a pretty darn big fighter.

But I suppose you're right; In realistic terms, this would be a standard-size fighter.

but still, it looks very nice.
I especially like those wings at the back.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

Another very original concept X, no matter what kind of fighter it is LoL.

It was built for an 'Original Starfighter' contest, so I tried to make it as unusual as possible. But you're right, the back half is definitely the better.
