Boomer

You thought you were safe. You were mistaken.

You look to the left. You look to the right.

Boom! Boom! Its right behind you!

/\/\/\

The 'Boomer' is a versatile bomber-focused fighter.

Offense:
- 6x Devastators (forward and bottom arcs)
- 6x Blasters (more or less 360 degree arcs)

Defense
- Sturdy damage-routing chassis
- Front and rear strut-shielding
- Top and bottom superstructure
- Has healthy wing redundancy

Extras
- Higher speed boost
- Energy Boost Module

This bot, which was born from yet another chassis concept that came to mind - but bears closest resemblance to the 'Crimsonite' (other than that plane's internal Blink module) - is designed for persistent hit-and-run strikes.

In theory it is almost as tough a plane as a 'Goldrunner' and faster than both aforementioned bots.

Its Energy Module is unusually situated external to the chassis. This is a deliberate choice intended to ensure no compromise to the chassis' integrity. In truth the module remains pretty well protected, most threats being below it, and the front chassis armor further serves to obscure and protect it. It also looks better forward than back - hence its situation towards the front.

The blasters configuration was somewhat of a happy accident. I knew that I desired thrusters below the center of mass so as to improve overall maneuverability and offset the many thrusters on the back of the plane - and this turned out great for incorporating blasters - and in a configuration that means that most angles enjoy 3-4 blasters of coverage.

This provides this bot with a welcome defensive edge against other fast planes trying to take a bite out of it, and also serves well for tagging and preventing auto-heal.

This plane is highly maneuverable. It has good VTOL. Steep dive and marginally steeper climb and can bank sharply.

It is an excellent choice for capping although it is ill-advised to remain on a cap contested.

/\/\/\

So - to summarize:

Durability: Tanky for a plane - Absorbs damage well.

Offense: Fairly Good - What it lacks in initial plasma bite the energy module makes up for - and the 360 degree laser coverage ensures a fair degree of anti-air capability.

Maneuverability: Knocking on the door of supreme.

Weaknesses: Dedicated anti-air bots - and even faster flying teslas.

I have often enough been told that my plane designs are ugly. :cP

I also admit that I went a step too far with trying to make three colours work in this design. I just want to ensure that these planes cannot be mistaken for each other when seen.

Thank you for the rating and comment. ^_^
