Ki-Do's Interceptor

8 posts in this topic

Pilot - Jedi Master Ki-Do

Ki-Do's intimidating looks hide a kind and gentle temperament. He is particularly well known for his incredible skills as a pilot combining exceptional precognitive force abilities and masterful tactics.

Ship - A.12 Interceptor

Kuat Systems Engineering held an internal competition to deliver the next generation starfighter to replace the Delta-7 and Delta-7B late in the Clone Wars. The company produced two prototypes, the A.12 and Eta-2. Both ships sacrificed hyperdrive units and shields in favor of speed and agility. The A.12 featured twin ion engines allowing a maximum acceleration of 5,200 g. The A.12 had more firepower than the Eta-2 with two large laser cannons, two smaller rapid fire laser cannons, and two ion cannons. The larger s-foils on the A.12 allowed more efficient heat dispersion than the Eta-2.

Both starfighters were subject to a series of tests with indeterminate results. In the end, a mock dogfight was to decide between the two capable crafts. Anakin Skywalker flew the Eta-2 and Ki-Do flew the A.12. The mock battle was epic, lasting over an hour, with Anakin and the Eta-2 emerging victorious.

Ki-Do believed Anakin modified the Eta-2 before the competition giving it a slight edge in performance while sacrificing reliability. Ki-Do kept the sole A.12 prototype and flew it in many successful battles. Ki-Do survived Order 66 in the A.12 but met his end at the hands of Vader during the Great Jedi Purge in a legendary rematch of their previous encounter.

S-foils rotate and double as landing gear

Excellent entry The Lantern Rouge! Very uniquely-designed ship yet still Star Wars-ish-looking, great presentation and nicely-thought backstory too. One of the strongest entries so far, impressive work and best of luck! :thumbup:

Great color scheme...sand blue works well with black, eh? :wink:

It has a robust, insect-like feel to it, while still being sleek and swooshable at the same time. I'd love to pilot that :wub:
