DS-03 Ekali

52.6k Ephwurd  3.7 years ago

"The raven's blood flows free from thy wings"
- PLF ace pilot Ragen Bix after securing his 54th kill with his fighter.

Controls:

  • Standard flight controls.
  • AG1 for hyperdrive.
  • AG2 for AA micromissiles.
  • AG3 for AG missiles and plasma cannons.

Manufactered by the infamous outlaw conglomerate Timandra Aerospace in 3213, the DS-03 Ekali served as the primary starfighter of the Pan Liberation Fleet during the Fringe Rebellion. The Ekali was built specifically to counter the Continuum Defense Force's Raven, which was then most formidable starfighter at the time. The Ekali is a polar opposite of its technologically-advanced counterpart, with the Raven being more of a flying tank, and the Ekali being a glass sword. Despite its flaws, such as poor armor and shields, the Ekali proved to be one of the PLF's most valuable assets, as the spacecraft can be fitted to serve a number of roles ranging from deep-space recon to air superiority, close air support to even anti-capital bombardment. The Ekali comes armed with a 20mm ballistic autocannon and twin retractable micromissile pods as default, and comes with 4 additional stock pylons for external modules. This particular variant, piloted by Ragen Bix, is armed with 2 additional fusion missile pods and 2 anti-capital plasma cannons for decimating enemy frigates and cruisers.

    @Ephwurd I make replicas, but I try to put an outrageous amount of effort into it and mostly stick to stuff that hasn't been on the front page in a long, long time.

    Scifi builds like this deserve more love than they get.

    @DarthAbhinav because the people here get more ecstatic on replicas than fictional stuff trying not to get triggered

    @Ephwurd yeah, the fact that it's different is what makes it really good! The look of it is something I rarely, if ever, see. This definitely deserves more than 14 upvotes

    @JangoTheMango thank you! I still used my usual building techniques here, I just tried to avoid making this one look like a flying brick
