    Default RE: Assegai design in W:P

    I miss the old design from Wip3out where the cabin was on the side. It's the first thing that attracted me to Assegai, since it was different than anything else.

    heh, true that!

    I like both designs, the old design was sleeker, fitting to the fast, agile, but weak-shielded Assegai. The new Assegai team is more balanced, though, and also the purE design is more logical. At speeds of over 500 kph, a cockpit fitted onto one side would definitely cause lots of distortion.

    And I absolutely ADORE the new livery paintjob of purE's Assegai!

    Appropriate that they made the Assegai craft look like a real Assegai

    For those of you that dont know: An Assegai is a spear used by African tribes men.

    lol when I first played WO 3 and glanced at the Assegai I though that cockpit was actually a gun, soon saw otherwise ops:

    anyone know the anime series 'Saber Rider'? The bad guys in this series where called the 'outriders' and they had little pod bikes which looked just like the w3o assegai. they even had the same color scheme!

    Yes, such an obtrusive cockpit would make for some rather adverse aerodynamics methinks...
