X-56 Experimental Fighter

Post by Bizzle on Wed Aug 19, 2009 7:40 pm

Used to defend the USA in 2578 from attacks from other countries the X-56 Experimental Fighter was capable of both fighting in space and in the atmosphere. It was produced by a branch of Boeing. It was armed with 2 Rail Guns, two missile launches and 10 canisters of chaff and a few flares. Capable of reaching Mach 10.5 it was the fastest fighter of the time and could reach any where in the would in a few hours.

Loving the SNOT work on the mandibles, but the rest of the craft isn't very appealing. There are too amny slopes conflicting with eachother and the curved slopes aren't mixing well with the regular slopes. The cockpit is nice too, Gunraven inspired?

I like it. I wish you had a better photo studio. Sad

The rear greebling is interesting, the piece usage is nifty, the smoothness of the frontal portion of the craft is admirable, and it really is a decent MOC. It's evident you've put effort into this Wink .

The slopes do kind of give away the light bley support beneath it. Ruins the consistency of the color-scheme on the rear portion.

This is a cool looking fighter Darth Bizzle, it got a good design, but what I would suggest is make it be able to reach a higher speed, maybe mach 24 because in this time we made an unmanned scramjet that reached about mach 10, that's the fastest jet today and here it is.

Mach 4.5? Pffft, aircraft go that fast today...I'm sure that there would be some speed increase in more than 500 years...but it's a good MOC...although your photo studio is...bleh.

Pd- Thank you. I don't know who I have seen do the cockpit pod before, all I know is I saw it on flickr and decided to use that design. And I agree the slopes on top kinda ruin the flow of the MOC.

Rook- I know my photo studio sucks.

Sial- Thanks. I put about 4 hours of work into this MOC to make the mandibles work and the greebles on the back cover where the mandibles attach to the fighter. I know it ruins the consistency but I felt like it need a weathered/been repaired look to it. Plus I have non of those pieces in dark bleh.


Vulcan- True we have a jet that reaches Mach 10 but really Mach 24? That would introduce a bunch of new problems, inertial dampeners would be needed to keep the pilots body from being instantaneously killed by the force of gravity.


Pizza-Pffft I see no Mach 4.5 in the post I only see Mach 10.5. When was the last time you had your eye's checked? Wink I know my photo studio is bleh so sue me.

I like it, looks good to my eyes. Could do with a few less studs here and there though. And we're still divided into petty nations in 500 years? The future is grim, in your backstory.

Yes and no. The USA was the dominant world power rivaled by none. How ever there were various wars through out earth so we made this fighter and bombed the fluck out of them and they ended up waging war as one body against us but we prevailed and a Apocalypse happened to all the world except the good 'ol USA... Who continued to to bomb the fluck out of the rest of the world.

Yeah you're probably right Mach 24 would probably be too fast but I looked at a wikipedia page on scramjets and it says that projections for the top speed of a scramjet engine vary between Mach 12 and Mach 24 and I would expect that in 500 years we would have been able to get to those speeds.

It doesn't really scream FIGHTER to me. It looks more like a speed-boat. It really looks too blocky to be maneuverable in the skies, though it is nicely armed.

Nice fighter, hate the backstory. Design is good, I like the pylons in front, and the cockpit area looks ok.
Now the backstory really gets to me though. The USA supremacist attitude is a bit trying, and I can''t see a nation (a) Bombing indiscriminately foreign nations during foreign wars that we would have no involvement whatsoever in. (b) Surviving the breakup of the nation-states, to remain the sole remaining power, and (c) Surviving an Apocalypse, which presumably was nuclear, and then continuing to bomb the shattered remnants of the other nations. Would you kick a man when he's down?

I really like this, although I'd add some greebles or tiles on top to get rid of the *shudders* studs! Razz

I totally made the story up dude... Besides the other countries attacked us first along time ago. I would kick a man when he is done if I hated him.


Tac- Thanks...I might redo parts of it, not 100% sure yet.

True but it is from the future.

That's really a lame excuse for a blocky fighter. Razz

Something from the future would be sleek and lean, but decked out with heavy weapons that are easily concealed and are neither overt nor huge.

@ Heady: Exactly! That's what the UN is trying to do: the UN wants to unite everyone in a worldwide supremacy which, as we've seen from history, fails miserably.

But enough talk of politics. If you had more to say you can always reply in PM. Smile

Can we stop the fighting I mean this fighter is experimental so it's technically a test fighter. Wink The cockpit needs work the weapons look good for the future though.

It just seemed from your backstory, that the USA decided to interfere in wars it had no business fighting, and their/our policies riled up the other nations, which attacked in protest. It's like in modern times, where we're Globo-Cop (Props to Bly for that phrase), meddling in most parts of the world. It doesn't seem like something a democratically-elected government would carry out, without provocation.
