MO-8652 Defense Satellite

on Wed Aug 13, 2014 9:59 am
This is just some random satellite I built a long time ago during my early years at the LUCL (or mid-years on Lego.com, because I was on the DbM gallery for at least 3-4 years). The idea with the alternating white and blue panels were inspired by something I saw on the DbM gallery.

Anyway, I'd imagine that this would defend Terra from ETX forces or orbit Mars to fight off the ETX. The Mars Mission Team could use it for surveillance as well or for orbital storage and supplies.

It could also alternately be used by the Galaxy Squad's Orange Team to take out fast and agile bug ships, thanks to its various armaments.

In general, the satellite makes an excellent battle station. It is completely self-sufficient, energy wise, is well-armed (at least enough to fend off small ETX ships and fighter craft), has various communication systems and sensors to transmit data or acquire data, and has propulsion in the form of a small engine in the rear. Cheap and easy to manufacture, the MO-8652 is integral in the defense of Terra and her colonies.

The satellite can split into modules for easy assembly in space. Solar panels can also be separated, but I forgot to do that part. Razz

Niiiice... very nice. Fairly simple, but well done. I do feel that it would benefit from a big space-space/space to ground gun though. As it is, it's armament looks a little light... yes I just said that to you. Razz

@Dino: Thank you! This is from a long time ago though. Razz The only changes I made today were to the orange. Razz Anyway thanks! Well, I like making sure my enemies...err...competitors are less...err...competition? Razz Don't worry. I'm making a new satellite which doesn't have the space-to-ground cannon, but something...similar. Razz

For an early design this is very well done! I like it!
