Stingray vs Corsair by Colourbrand Stingray vs Corsair by Colourbrand
This is a picture of Battletech Aerospace fighters at each other's throats. The top one is an F-90 Stingray and the one its shooting at is a CSR-V12 Corsair.

The Stingray is in House Steiner colours and the Corsair was suppose to be in Davion colours but I learnt that they are yellow not red. However the red colouring is so striking so I kept it. The yellow was not good enough.

So one can say its a squads' colour.

They may not look exactly like them but are modified to be feesable. Most of Battletech's aerospace fighters are poor designs but some are utter jems like these.

Enjoy!

I like that you've added the canard stabilisers to the Corsair... looking at the original drawing of the fighter, I can see that the long, long nose seems wrong without them.:)

Hey stranger! Long time no hear :D

Well to be honest, the Corsair was a rip off of a Crusher Joe fighter. In addition, lets be honest about Battletech - accuracy and intelligence are not their strong points....

Hey, you're not rid of me that easily!:D

 

"accuracy and intelligence are not their strong points"... I know just what you mean. I've lost track of the number of designs - BattleMech, vehicles, you name it - that have glaring discrepancies in ammunition, placement of weapons, and other f***-ups of truly breathtaking level.:rage:

 

One of my favourites has to be the equipment layout for the Clans' 'Jenner II' machine, which states that it has eight jump jets. Four in each leg. Which... on the boardgame's 'Mech record sheets... means that the Jenner II has to have its feet and lower legs chopped off to fit the jump jets.:wtf: That's just one of many, many examples I can cite, but I'm sure you don't want me to start frothing at the mouth...

Mate I want you around for decades!

Well there hangs a tail - eight jump jets, four per leg. Sounds like a right turkey - F'kers...

i see the Corsair and all i can think of is the Mech Commander intro that starts with a corsair blasting a satellite.
