I see it as more of a starfighter with aerospace capabilities than a straight up fighter jet. But I have no idea if that is correct or not.

I still think one fitting inside a semi-trailer crate is a bit off; a Chub stands at about 7.5 metres tall - which is about 2 storeys high - if I calculate it correctly, and I have yet to see a truck which can carry a 2-storey building in it's crate.

Take a look at this. It's a model of a Scopedog -- which is the inspiration for the Chub -- and it shows that it can fold into a shorter configuration.

That's one way around it I guess.

The swept-wing looks amazing. Much prefer it to the straight wing.

Omg the swept wings. A million times "Yes!" The bulk in the back bothered me at first, too, but I thought of it similar to MittenNinja thinking it was a combo space/atmospheric fighter.
