GalCop Police

Was there actually ever an official insignia for GalCop Police ?

So far I was able to find 2 examples:

The original Police ships used this logo, carried forward into the Classic Ships versions.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply Smivs,
this time I intend to stick to the original logo, maybe just modify it a bit. Galactic Navy teached me a lesson since I had to update existing ships as well.

You're welcome.
The image above is the 'master' that I used for all the CS police ships. I deliberately blurred it a little to remove saw-tooth artifacts on both the star and circle - when applied to the CS textures it looks crisp enough in-game. You are welcome to use it if it helps.
Also, just as a point of information, I think the 'Starbird' device is the official Galcop logo, but I don't think it was ever used on police ships. I did make a starbird police logo, but decided not to use it as it wasn't 'authentic' to Aegidian's original colour-schemes and designs which I was keen to follow. Again, feel free to use this if you want to.

As far as I seen they were vipers with purple flashing lights.
Run or shoot was the only option.
Really don't remember seeing any badge.

It's a shame the old Viper Interceptor is missing from the core ships.

True, right now scaling the viper model is my only way to get the difference from the past.
