I just found out the Mu shuttle have side doors near the cockpit and I though the back door was the only entrance to go in.

Still love this bird’s sheer streamlined utility. Don’t suppose it’s appreciably nimbler than Lambdas or the prequel/sequel shuttles?

The huge wings and dorsal fin on the Lambda suggest an extraordinarily robust power plant (TIE Defender reactors?) to require so much surface area for heat dissipation. Some of that might go into guns/shielding/specialized hardware like ECM modules or a cloaking device, but the Lambda ought to be pretty damn fast if you throw all the output into engines.

Dunno how much Sienar & Cygnus cared to collaborate (though they might not have had much choice), but between the radiator-size factor & apparent thruster area, I can see a Lambda out-accelerating the Mu, though cornering might be a different story. Just keep the former shuttle outta low-bridge/tight-wall chase sequences.

So I found a another mu shuttle which is the Mu-2 long range shuttle and it look like this:comment image/revision/latest?cb=20060406073732

I like the detail the new render brings out in the nose and canopy. So if a Lambda is about 20m long, this looks about… 16-14m ish?

Love it! Is this for ships that have a hangar but not of the 25m variety?

That’s the idea; plenty of light to medium Imperial ships out there with less launch-bay space than an Impstar.

I love it! Looks like you lifted the cockpit windshield right off a B-29 Superfortress. This looks like it should have a heavy bomber varient.

So Fractal how many people can it carry like around 10?

If one assumes the side doors can fit a full sized human standing without stooping. I can maybe eyeball 12? six on each side? I dunno how many in cockpit area. maybe 3? one in front, with two on either side?

Possibly 4 in the cockpit if it is large enough for 12 people. However, given that it looks like the Lambda is 1.25 times the size of the Mu, so the Mu would have maybe 20 People, plus cockpit? 1 Pilot, 1 Co-Pilot, and 2 Variable Positions? Like for a Command Shuttle, perhaps a Commanding Officer, and a Communications Specialist?

The general spaceframe is great but the front seems too rounded for me.

Mm, actually, that’s not it…maybe the TIE-esq viewport arrangements?

Eh, still less awkwardly incorporated than on, say, the VT-49 gunship.

Fractalsponge, I must say, your work keeps getting better and better. I was wondering, could you create a 4k set of images for the Assertor-Class?
