One fighter has been missing from Klavs' fleet of WC1 attack craft, and that role is now being filled! Based on his own sketches and some concept art from NinjaLA, Klavs is has begun to interpret how a sleek aerodynamic Raptor might look. It certainly looks like a heavy fighter compared to its more nimble siblings. I'd hate to be the Krant standing in its way!
I really appreciate the support guys, this is a tough one!
I just went whole hog with the Heavy Gunboat/Gunstar thing. My thinking is that the Raptor was conceived as a system patrol craft and was converted and upgraded to a heavy fighter, at least, that's how my design philosophy has evolved.
Somewhere along the line, it mated with a B-1, and I just kind of went with it.
