[Vee] Zipper

Post by GRUD » Sat Jan 18, 2014 4:23 pm

Another product of my boredom, I came up with this insanely fast scout vee. I figured "Zipper" was a better name for it than "What the HELL just flew by me?". :lol: Model 1 is faster (only because of the Supercharger!), but Model 2 is a little bit more armored, which isn't saying a whole lot really. :lol: Then again, "Speed Is Life" is something all Good, Veteran scouts live by anyway, right? :wink: If you want something Canon that's faster, you'll have to look to the ScolTeck NapFind/Hi-Scout Drone (NapFind), which moves 25/38, but only weighs 2 tons. While the Zipper can catch and PASS a Savannah Master, it doesn't carry any weapons, so there wouldn't be any point to doing it in combat. Then again, you could always ram it if you had to! :lol: Sure, you could buy several Savannah Masters for the price of ONE Zipper (88,917 C-Bills versus 8,420,750 C-Bills for Model 1!! - OK, nearly 95 SMs!! :shock: ), but again, that's only if you're concerned about the cost. :lol:

To me, Repros are 100% Wrong, and there's NO room for me to give ground on this subject. I'm not just an Immovable Object on this, I'm THE Immovable Object.
