Fruit Bat download

The Fruit Bat is a cheap, somewhat manouvreable fighter/escort, often used by pirates and escorts alike.
It was designed for mass production by the now defunct CLAN Ltd. from Erbiti and the production facilities where bought by SensimTrading and relocated to Anisor.
The Fruit Bat was not a very popular model, but when MASSTrans GLC bought into the traditional familiy business (holding 49.9 percent of the shares), they started to produce a slightly enhanced version exclusively for MASSTrans' subsidiary firm MT SEC under the name of "Flying Fox" (Pictured above). Sales of the standard model have been rising slightly, but demand for a customer version with the same specifications (with a slightly larger and more efficient engine) are estimated to be even higher. It is unknown, if plans of releasing this model to the general public are made.
MT SEC, working formerly under exclusive contract for MASSTRans freighttrains, started recently to open their escort services to private traders with allowance of their parent company, and although they take premium fees, their services are in high demand (and add a boost to the prestige of their employer).

Have fun! :D

Nice work and a good texturing job.

I just added Version 1.01 to the box. Tomorrow I plan to release the freighttrain OXP, and this is one OXP, that adds to the fun (but you won't need it...) :D
