KMZ99 Special Attack Craft by Artraccoon KMZ99 Special Attack Craft by Artraccoon

 Milieu: Axis Universe

 The KMZ99 Special Attack Craft is a Latavi weapon of desperation, used in Kamikaze style attacks on larger enemy space craft.  Made from the components EK-101 Light Fighter, this craft was used during the attempted invasion of the Latavi worlds by the Grand Galactic Empire's rimward expeditionary fleet in 2256.  The original concept was for the craft to launch the warhead, but urgency and desperation resulted in the creation of a suicide craft.  The heroic volunteers that piloted them are credited with driving the Empires forces off and saving the Latavi from enslavement.  KMZ99s can still be found in warehouses and underground storage bunkers as emergency reserve stocks.  Some have even been removed from military inventory and sold off for conversion into sport flyers( minus the gun and warhead of course).   The KMZ99 was armed with a single pulse laser cannon, and was fitted with a large anti-starship warhead.

Is that supposed to have a bunny person pilot?  For some reason I got the impression that the pilot was a penguin.  Maybe I watch too much of the Penguins of Madagascar cartoon.

Hmmm... well a penguin or an Akogi from Caravan Kidd.  But that would seem to lessen the seriousness of it being a suicide attack craft.

Latavis are "bunnies".  There's a lot of design influences from WW2 Japanese fighter pilots and Jojhi Manabe mangas in this piece.

  I understand the kamikaze idea.  An I love the ship.  I still think the nose looks like a female breast.  Sorry but that is my view.

The large anti-starship warhead is the size of about how many atomic bombs?

I guess the size of the bomb also depends on how big of ships they were meant to take out.
