Battletech Morgenstern Medium Aerospace Fighter by HandofManos Battletech Morgenstern Medium Aerospace Fighter by HandofManos
The Morgenstern Aerospace fighter is a design seen in the Battletech universe. Used by the Lyran Commonwealth the Morgenstern is a medium fighter equiped with dual ER heavy lasers, rear firing medium laser and 2 MML7's. Variants with different weapons loadouts are in service as well.

This is basically something I have put in the fridge for way to long. And that is work on a Battletech/Mechwarrior design. Something several people already mentioned me to work on as well as myself having an interest in it. I never had the guts to actually start it so consider this my first try into the scifi universe.

EDIT final version. Gave it a greenish color and added some insignia

The olny change I might suggest is to increase the downward angle of the wingtips outboard of the engine pods.

They've had some seriously Fug Fighters out there... so not to difficult for improvement.

That said, this is a WONDERFUL improvement over standard Battletech/Aerotech designs...

o.o looks more like a Bomber than a fighter o.o..very enlarged wings...but none the less a very intersting and engaging design ^^

Battletech in general are more rugged it seems :D It also comes armed with some heavy weaponry to take on heavy targets. If I am correct it has two ER large lasers, 2x MML7 launchers and a medium laser (rear facing small turret).

A solid start for sure. I'm not familiar with Battletech but it is looking interesting - very dangerous :D
