Fokker K.3 starfighter by JanBoruta Fokker K.3 starfighter by JanBoruta
After several British space successes supported by nimble fighters, the germans developed their own starfighters. They've even converted new atmoshperic planes into real starfighters. The Fokker K.3 Sternjäger is a fast, agile and lightly-armed triplane. Its standard armament consists of three MG-8 machine guns, but it is a wide practice to add 20mm cannons on the middle pair of wings. The cockpit has been drastically lowered into the hull for protection, but this became it's largest flaw as it limited the pilot's field of vision. Therefore, many planes have been equipped with periscopes, fitting perfectly in the cockpit.

This is the last of my concepts for this time, after one-two weeks I'm gonna do more. I just want to prevent myself from getting bored. :)

Done today on History and Polish classes.

Enjoy.
Tom :D

This could go with the Leviathan story line.

This is beautiful... But wouldn't a periscope be a bitch to use in a dogfight?
