"those maroon structures on either side of the drive pod are the heavily armored fuel tanks..."

Sound and reasonable concept. My only real concern with this design is ammo and other storage. Presumably one could pack quite a bit of airwing related material into the hangr deck spaces, but there's not a whole lot of hull for tylium fuel, water tanks living spaces or ammo. Perhaps a bit of beefing up on the upper works would resolve that problem, another idea could be to provide external hardpoints for some form of externally connected cargo-style modules. Such an arrangement might add to the utility of such a small craft by increasing its adaptability with mission-specific configuations.

It look like the ships from Wing Commander.

Now you need to do the update version with a hull similar to modern Battlestars, the only thing I dont like in this draw is that the ship dont have silos fr missiles and the bateries in the top of the ship.

This ship look like a proto design of a Battlestar, a ship that the Colonies use before the Cylon War, not bad, but I think it need some redesign to make look more like a war ship and no a boat with guns.

not so sure of the big engine pod underneath, but the idea of an aircraft carrrier-style tower on a flight pod is a nice idea, definately food for thought......
