Fleet 12

Tanto Class Frigate, on Flickr.

Another new Intercept Orbit design. It seems a bit cheesy to be going with a Japanese name, but it seems to fit somehow. I haven't added any attachments yet.

I like the split-prow, very unique. But wouldn't Sai be a more appropriate name?

I really like the plates between the wings, but I'm stumped as to what the white bars are sticking out the back.It really looks like some kind of 1x2 with a bar sticking out horizontally, but I can't quite tell.

Either way, it makes for a nice profile.

Those open spaces inside the wings look like great places for frame catapults.

I'll probably pop some Stud Shooters in there as Catapults if I get any in a good color.

The stud shooters do make nice catapults.

Those are all really nice, but frankly the stud shooters look too much like weapons to me, which isn't a bad thing, I just wouldn't deploy them as frame catapults.
