Background:

         Incom's Hellcat is a new cutting edge in starfighter performance. Its heavy firepower, high speed and high performance flight profile make it a formidable combat spacecraft.

         Once in the efficient but still comfortable cockpit, the pilot controls the fighter's complex systems through the powerful flight computer. The cockpit includes a complete life-support system and ejection seat. Four forward firing wing mounted laser cannons are the primary armament; a proton torpedo launcher each side of the pilot's cockpit provide additional punch for use against slow-moving targets. Extra firepower is provided by the two medium laser cannons and two medium ion cannons on a turret under the chin that can be controlled by the A10 astromech. The shields can be angled forward or behind for maximum cover. An emergency power generator guarantees some power to life-support, shields, subspace communications array, weapons even with complete engine failure. Long-range communications gear and highly effective sensors allow Hellcats to operate at long-ranges in deep space. Shielded components and modules control most systems, with backups protecting the most vital systems.

         Even though the Hellcat's powerful engines include Incom MKII drive modules for hyperspace jumps, these fighters usually leave the A10 to calculate jumps with the navigation computer. A special socket behind the cockpit houses the droid, once inside a hatch cover closes over the droid sealing it within the ship. Once plugged in with its interface jack the droid is linked directly in to all the ship functions and is able to monitor them including the pilot's life support system and alerts the pilot to any problems or danger it senses.

         The Incom Hellcat was designed with the help of the Industrial Automaton advanced design team to create a superior integrated product. The Industrial Automaton A10 Astromech Droid even as a stand-alone product is an exceedingly sophisticated design.

Hellstormer1: "I've always loved this fighter. Ever since my friend, Jim, noticed it and began using it for his own campaign, I fell in love with the design of this fighter, as portrayed in the pic above. Eventually, I did find more [ics of it online, and copied these into my Photobucket while I was upon them. But I forgot who the creator of it was, or what the fighter was called. Hell, I even forgot how I found them in the first place.
"Anywho, yeah, these were used for a while in my buddy's Nadwell-IV PDF games. Later, something about it had us thinking it was made some time after the Battle of Endor, but I forgot why. I think it had to do with either Incom or IA, or maybe the A10 Astromech, or maybe that it should have been created long after the X-Wing, or that Incom might have wanted to recapitalize when their techs took the X-Wing to the Rebel Alliance......dunno for certain.
"But any way it is used, this fighter kicks much ass!"
