    SVU Fighter F-3 Pack Mod 1A

    Nimble and lethal starfighters with several variants

      Game version:
      Weapons 3.0
      Shokolad Vodka Union is proud to unveil its first starfighter design, the F-3. The F-3 was born out of a need to protect our mining and transport vessels from pirate attacks. This one-man light fighter is cheap to produce and is best to be operated from short range bases or carriers. We use it to accompany our mining fleets in mixed squadrons.
      • The F-3 is perfect for engaging fast vessels and taking down their shields with its railguns to soften them up for the others.
      • The FB-3 deals enormous damage to ships with its torpedoes and can disable their systems or overwhelm their defenses.
      • The FA-3 is a blend of the two and can both track down fast targets with its missiles and damage them significantly.

      Designer's Note: As my first ship designed for combat, I essentially built around the reactor and weapons while keep the stats balanced.

      The order includes all three variants in one package. As always, we allow you to refit our ships to your liking. We will produce versions with colored paint on demand. Make sure to keep an eye/camera/sensor/antenna out for the F-3's, successor, which will be ready for production soon.

      I like the ship. But looking at your username...why did you not put in a three stripes of Adidas?

      You definitely don't like slabs xD And they can give you much better curves than wedges.

      It is a good idea to either throw away circuits from engines (preferable on such a small ship) or place ice above all the engine surface, leaving a gap for thruster plumes to spawn (less preferable on this scale).

      Otherwise, the ship is great. Screenshots are not, though xD
      I'd try a different angle, where the ship shape is revealed, not concealed by wedge reflections and Starmade light render troubles xD
