    Buck Roger's Earth Defense Directorate's Starfighter

    created by exemplarinc on 2012.08.21

    Main Section
    An authentic-to-scale replica of Buck Roger's Earth Defense Directorate's starfighter. The fighter was commissioned and has been mass produced to protect the Earth and her government's in-service fleet of starships.

    Technical Specifications:
    Designation: ED-SF-012
    Nation of Origin: Earth
    Manufacturer: Earth Defense Directorate
    Class: fighter
    Power-plant: 2 ion engines powered by a hydrogen fusion reactor (uses a stargate to travel
    interstellar distances)
    Cargo: back aft-facing cockpit (4 ft x 4.5 ft x 4 ft) used for emergency equipment and
    weapons, or to transport a passenger
    Max Speed: approaching the speed of light (warp 1)
    Range: 800 miles (1,290 km) in space (less if in an atmosphere)
    Crew: 1 in front cockpit (but can fit 1 co-pilot/passenger in the aft-facing back cockpit)
    Flight control: manual (preferred) or automatic combat
    Armament: 8 laser cannons (that fire simultaneously in sink); 2 (optional) anti-ship missiles
    (mounted on the underbelly)
    Defense: deflector shield
    Airframe: twin delta wing
    Systems: life support and internal gravity

    The fighter comprises front-, and back- aft facing, cockpits interjecting a twin boom construction. Each boom has a sharp-nosed front (that houses 4 laser cannons) and an ion engine mounted in the rear.

    The fighter is very fast, maneuverable and heavily armed. The fighter can launch and land under its own power but often uses an electromagnetic launch system to reach a greater initial velocity than would otherwise be possible.

    The starfighter's only downfall is its automatic combat mode program, designed and intended to fight better than the pilots themselves. This program was found to be too predictable in battle and is normally abandoned in favour of full manual flight control mode.

    Model dimensions (approx.): 15.5” L x 9.5” W x 6.25” H. The model's transparent front- and rear-cockpit canopies swivel upward to reveal 2 standard-sized spacemen (pilot and co-pilot) at the helm of the dual sticks and computer consoles (as shown). Alternatively, the rear-cockpit can serve as a passenger/cargo hold (without a stick and computer console if desired).
