History
The Buzzirek-class was designed and constructed by Kualin Stardrives, as a superiority fighter for their defense force. It received attention and support from some of the best in starfighter construction: Cyxtess technologies, Lottex Stardrives, Qi’natc SP - and of course, the legendary Zenlian Drives. The Buzzirek went through intense prototype and testing phases, where the most modern and capable technologies were put through rigorous combat trials and stress tests. The resulting starfighter was one of the best ever produced, able to match the Xexon and Jorac classes in performance and durability. The fighter was bought in large quantities by major civilizations in the Galactic Alliance, including the Crystaline Empire and the Tilanex Empire. Constant minor improvements and modifications, coupled with a fairly modular and modifiable layout, allowed the Buzzirek to remain in service for more than a millennia. The Buzzirek came the closest to checking Zenlian Drives' monopoly on starfighter design, and has been heavily featured in documentaries and museums. The ship remains one of Kualin Stardrives' crowning achievements, and made huge profits for the company and its subsidiaries.

The Buzzirek did not carry a great numbers of weapons, nor was it significantly more economic than the competition. Instead, the primary draw for the Buzzirek was its two beam cannons - the very first successfully mounted on a starfighter. Utilizing a heat dispersion system built from the ground up, and greatly improved venting systems and gas storage, the starfighter was able to wield twin Zefin CDBw beam cannons on either side of the fuselage. These could maintain a solid beam for two seconds, and put out considerably more power than standard laser cannons. In addition, the beam cannons could fire off-center, and had a well-designed targeting system to help the weapon track a target and maintain contact. This made the Buzzirek a deadly adversary if caught from behind - few fighters had the maneuverability to swing out of the way before being cut through, and the fighter had twin laser cannons to aid in an enemy's destruction. To top off the Buzzirek's destructive capabilities, thirty missiles were housed in a single launcher below the ship.

The Buzzirek was equipped with powerful shields; however, in this aspect the ship fell short of competitors. The space needed for a mark three reactor on the small fighter, and the various systems which aided the beam cannons, meant that shielding system size was constrained. The ship had barely enough shield strength to withstand a blow from its own weapons, and was considered somewhat of a glass cannon by its pilots. Fortunately, the Buzzirek had powerful repulsorlifts, inertial systems, and sensors, making evasion and maneuver effortless. The fighter was able to carry a powerful darkspace drive, giving it good range for scouting and patrolling space.

It is a very typical and very good-looking fighter. Seeing your work makes me want to make one, too.

18x15x4 is perfectly fine in comparison with real life dimensions. It's just shame that MC does not allow to make models functional through redstone and stuff at such scale. Recently I've tried to make the smallest possible fighter that would at least have an openable cockpit, switchable engines on or off, and some sort of weapon, and I must say that 18x15 would suffice, but unfortunately 4 blocks of height is just unreal :/ I would <3 to be able to compress redstone into that kind of height :/
Of course, it depends what your goal is. Mine is to make the thing functional somehow, and yours is to make it look good and according to your obviously very complex lore ^^

Hi ^^ nice to see you here too! Oh yes I do like spaceships. I haven't built many, but it's mainly due to my attempts to build detailed interiors and to make things work with redstone and command blocks...
