Light Shuttle WIP#1

posted in: Galactic Empire, Star Wars, WIP | 7

Light shuttle idea Рbasically a lot smaller than a Lambda but with roughly similar internal cabin capacity. Suitable for utility tasks and for deployment off smaller ships that cannot handle the very volume-intensive Lambda variants. Original basic layout from the following, with my own twist and obviously different detail work:

Why did the Empire need these when it had those well-armed Deltas?

Personally, I want this to become a bomber. That long fuselage just seems made for a concussion missile bay.

That much-reduced upper fin is a decent first step, though now I’m pondering just what benefits said surface lends Lambdas/Sentinels/Starwings in the first place (extra generator and/or heat-sink space? Atmospheric maneuvering aid?). Also digging the neatly-blended fuselage.

There’s so many WWII bomber cockpits in that one cockpit that I could spend 3 hours typing them all out, luf ut.
