must admit I like the thought of the G12a but I wish it had a turret instead of just 8 missiles. Which makes the G12 more attractive with its turret.
Thinking the same. Unless maybe if the G12a has a hidden stockpile of missiles in its trunk for reloading, instead of carrying 2 SCU of other cargo.

I think the 2 SCU of the G12 is used to hold the reload of 4 more missiles as the rack only holds 4 as seen by the concept artwork. The extra armor is a nice addition but not sure the missiles would be any benefit as it would be more useful as an antipersonnel then a anti-ship.

This is beautiful. Good work!
There's a lot of stuff I'd have done differently... namely using a different source for the hardpoints than the RSI website.

I got a lot of (well deserved, I suppose) shit for some errors in the document on reddit. I think I'm just going to go hog-wild and revamp it once I get the motivation.

Someone on the discord mentioned that it needs TEST logos all over it. Maybe once I've had it vetted by the braintrust I'll do that too.
