Sparrow Multipurpose fighter
This is a cheap fighter project I made to design a simple yet somewhat effective combat aircraft. The sparrow was the result and will be used as a carrier-based fighter, torpedo bomber and escort fighter. The variant I will post is the default low altitude fighter version, although it is easily modifiable with multiple variants such as a high altitude interceptor and even a torp bomber version.

Statistics
Cost: 8406 materials
Blocks: 326
Speed: 89 m/s
Armaments: 6 5-block frag missiles with 3 warheads
Length:24
Width:17
Height:4 (5 for the carrier based version due to the landing gear)

RE: Sparrow Multipurpose fighter
hi there

testet it against my anti air platform (Seraphim MK II-A)
and some other stuff

at first ill say its a realy nice plane (simple but nice)

but even if it outnumbers my Seraphim by 1 to 6 it loses 95% of the time
(the match up isnt realy fair cause my craft is exactly build to fight planes like urs)

the plane-frame itself offers enought protection vs low caliber gunfire but didnt help against thumperhead missel's
(emp is may an problem to didnt have/test it vs crafts with any emp weapons, but with the size like this i think u cant realy do something agains emp)
the plane flys smooth what is nice to watch but not good for dogging shell fire
and i think it has to many ammo boxes

did better vs other crafts (in game ones around same size)

like's strange music Tongue

Thanks for testing the plane out. I'm glad you like it. Also thanks for telling me about the ammo. I will make sure to remove some of the ammunition and use processors instead.

About the armour, it has minimal protection because I wanted it to be cheap and easy to build to fight off early DWG and use as a swarmer later. I will try and improve armour against missiles though. Once again, thanks for telling me about this issue.
