Hi canis just seen shots of fighters on caprica

The First thing that came to my mind was how cool would thay look on your original Indra

I have done some reworking of your ship still a WIP hope your ok with that (sorry no credit on image as its way from finished and had no plan to post it ) just wanted to run it past you:)
And to see what you thought of the fighter/Indra combo

I don't think that fighter is intended for space combat. It has no RCS thrusters like the Vipers in BSG, leading me to think its atmospheric-only. Plus it would be rather old for the Indra. She doesn't enter service until the final years of the Cylon War, which would make the Caprica Viper almost 20 years old by then. The Indra was designed from the onset with the MkII in mind. Neat upgrade of the Indra BTW.

That would be nice because that is an awesome looking fighter. Oh, I also like the Indra-class update.

Ok I know is very wip but have i Got it?
I know Canis said it was to old for the Indra
If i were to put RCT's on it anyone have a battlestar that think it would work with.

IF you all think as Canis(I know your right not a putdown or any thing just think this looks to cool not to use)

what would a Caprican CV look like??
also what would a awacs/raptor type look like?(I was thinking along the lines of a unmanned thingy(whatever there called) with a 40's twist ?

All comments welcome

Looks good! Could always work for ships from the early years of the Cylon War.

Some of the concept sketches for the Valkyrie might work, with their "flat-top" design that looks more primitive than the later Battlestars.

I'v been working on a caprican vessel that would carry 20 fighters and 10 raiders. The fighters would have been Mk 1 Vipers, but this could work. The raiders did the job of raptors. Try the Ares until you get a different design.

First pass at awacs/raptor what do you guys think?
a little blackhawk/stallion hawkeye the tail was going to look like dc3 but ended up looking like A6 (to me anyway),the power plants are cloned right off the fighter and I see them working like V22?
input would be welcome

Update:
Image
Thinking of calling this Mk3 Seabuck (think that what Anders says?)
And the fighter Mk8 Cobra.wanted to use Shadowcat/Allycat(homage to the F14) but Cobra is more likely.
Next up:
Image
Thinking along the lines of a sea going mini battlestar(Trimaran), the blob at the bottom my turn into a early battlestar haven't closed that door just yet,
Any one want to recolour (fake/realworld squadron's) be my guest, would like to see someone else getting some thing out of this.
BSG19: what is your ship?
Thanks for feedback Canis/Lord Overmind,and Mr Sullivan
as allways input is welcome

Think a Terran battle cruiser but "colonialised" It's effectively the original series battlestar striped of pods and modded, used Canis's image
