Wild Design Serves as Hellcat Inspiration Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

DefianceIndustries took a break from recreating well known ships from Wing Commander to do a concept sketch. The Wildcat fighter is introduced in Action Stations, and the implication is that it was a precursor to the Hellcat just like their WW2 ancestors. The result draws some clear parallels to well known designs while simultaneously introducing multiple unique design elements that could be considered throwback retro cues. And with its four guns and twin engines, it looks like a potent little fighter!
Oodles of Doodles. One of the advantages of having all day mandatory training is that you have time to do some doodling... not that I'd ever recommend anyone do that of course, your full attentions should always be on your course work...

Anyway I started noodling on what a Wildcat might look like, as a predecessor to the Hellcat it should share some design similarities but would look a bit more anime styled ala WC1/2. So I worked from there. The end result isn't really that I don't think but it did come out looking alot like what a regular F-45 Hellcat might look like in Super Wing Commander. So yeah here is my SWC Hellcat doodle... that I totally did on my lunch break... C&C Welcome as always

...it definitely has that Rapier vibe to it. It isn't distinct enough to fit in the SWC canon per se - considering how wacky they all are. But that's why I gave it the single vertical stabilizer, which is practically unknown in WC 1-3 and SWC. But it does kind of fill a niche between the SWC Hornet and a Scimitar (demon). The backwards spikey things were just a stylistic choice... er I mean they maintain the super-quantum hydro-spatial tachyon field in a state of partial flux; which, as we all know, is essential for the safe operation of space craft at the speeds in which they operate...
