Just showing some of the newer updated Craft too.
This is just a thought, but I was wondering if it might be interesting to have the devastator as a successor to the thunderbolt. Having that large tail/wing section on the devastator might look nice and tie it in well. I like how your earlier design was progressing. How come you decided to scrap that approach?

Well I'm probably going to stick with it's role as a bomber. But you have given me a really good idea on perhaps how the design should go. In WC Arena We see that alot of the fighters/bombers all have beefed up armor (except in there stock form). Even though the Devestator has a good amount of armor at the moment. It would be possible and feasible to add on to the Devestator wing areas and make it seem heavier....More armament, More armor, But perhaps a little slower (WC Arena shows the heavier the ship the slower). Good idea on that sketch!
why not take some of the power on the gun that’s only good for shooting cap ships down a bit and use that energy for the shields. The gun chart says that the plasma gun needs 220 energy to shoot and 2000ms to fire again you could but your gun energy at 500 and still have a good amount of energy to kill a cap shit and live. Then put that energy into the shields to hold of fighters a little longer and not have to hope that all the extra armor holds up.
