    You pretty much just described a FEISAR with bad thrust and slightly worse handling! : 70/100/80/80

    Okay, I guess I shouldn't have said "very good", but I thought up of a better story and I guess while I'm at it ill make the ship "very good". (also, I am not good at making names!)

    Venom Racing Development

    Ship Type: Dual Hull

    Origin: U.S.A

    In 2155, Grant Samson founded Venom, a commercial a-g ship manufacturer that later joined the F-9000 league in 2166. Their ship was moderately good, with great handling and sheilds. Although they had lots of success in the F-9000, due to some highly skilled pilots, when the league collapsed, they were on the brink of bankruptcy. They invested millions of dollars in their craft, and it only competed for a couple years.

    They still managed to make it through to the dawn of the FX300 league by selling commercial ships once more, where they were thrilled to hear they could race some more. They entered the FX300 late, in 2198 because they wanted to refine their ship to have more success. After using up pretty much all the money they had left in a final attempt to get the glory they had before, the ship turned out brilliant. it was one of the best on the track, and the company went from dying to thriving by the time the FX350 and 400 where announced.

    They decided to take the same approach as last time, and came to the leagues late, in 2208. They moved on to the FX500 league later, not coming late finally, where their research and financial backing helped them.

    F-9000 Ship: Their F-9000 ship SORT OF looks like a cross between the Qirex F-5000 and Auricom F-7200. It sort of looks like the Auricom but with the wing looking from the Qirex things on the front and back. The paint job is SORT OF like Feisar's F-9000 but with red and black. (the yellow part is red blue part is black and the letters are black and say venom.)stats: (as un-upgraded.)
    speed:1106 kph
    stability: 7%
    thrust: 0-400 kph in 1.9 secs
    mass: 1800 kg
    shields: 100 gsu
    weapons: 88 gsu

    FX-300 ship: SORT OF a cross between the Auricom And Assegai FX300. It has a similar cockpit and back to the Auricom and the hulls are sort of like the Assegai. The paint job is thin black racing stripes on the hulls and cockpit, and on the side it has a single black stripe (on the side of each hull) that has VENOM in it sort of like: -----------VENOM--------- (the line isn't dashed on the ship) and the tops of the hulls are darker red than the rest. stats:
    speed: 8/10
    handling:7/10
    shield:6/10
    thrust:8/10

    FX-350 ship: pretty much same. The livery is the same as the FX-300 but the very front panels are darker red and so are the panels around the cockpit and back. The racing stripes are now one black one white. It also has more sponsors.
    Alternate livery #1: Same but switched stripe and main colors. Alternate livery #2: racing stripes are on sides now, VENOM stripes on top of hulls and cockpit. stats:
    speed:8/10
    thrust:9/10
    handling:8/10
    shields:8/10

    FX-350 Fury ship: SORT OF a cross of the Auricom and Qirex fury ships, similar to the front halves of the hulls of an Auricom on a Qirex. The livery is SORT OF the Auricom fury livery but some of the stars are gone, some have been replaced with VENOM. stats:
    speed:8.5/10
    thrust:9/10
    handling:8.5/10
    shields:8/10

    FX-400: same as FX-350. Alternate is alternate #1 from FX-350. stats: same as FX-350

    FX-400 concept: looks a lot like the icaras FX-400 ship. livery has been made to fit single hull. livery is also slightly different.

    NOTE: ship descriptions are very vague. same with ship liveries. this is just to give an idea of their story and ship type. the liveries are not actual. they would look better and more detailed.

    Zweigart Ltd.

    Ship Type: Quad-hull (F7200, FX400)
    Dual hull (F9000)

    Origin: United Kingdom (as Throttle Jam Motors) 2125-2143
    Ukraine (as GasTech Engineering, Inc.) 2162-2169
    Germany (as Zweigart Ltd.) 2210-present

    Founded in 2125 by English engineer Andrew Colvert following his inevitable resignation from Icaras after a heated argument with Burnston Burns over the "new approach" to AG racing that Icaras held dear. In 2127, Colvert began to craft an experimental quad-hull craft to compete in the F7200 League against their new rival, Icaras. However, during their foray into the F7200 League, their performance record made Icaras' record look like Qirex in comparison, as out of all the races they competed in from 2127-2138, they only managed to finish only one race which would end up being their only victory during their F7200 campaign with lead pilot, K.C. Akenbran (AUS) narrowly edging out Auricom's Davey Carter(USA) in the 2137 Hi-Fumii Grand Prix. Throttle Jam Motors would eventually resign from the sport in 2143 following an incident at Stanza Inter that would cause the death of K.C. Akenbran.

    What was left of the team was absorbed by Ukrainian technicians Mikhail Visscov and Radomir Gaztevenov to form GasTech Engineering, Inc. (no relation to G-Tech Systems) in 2162 and began developing a craft that relied almost exclusively on stealth tactics and high acceleration for the F9000 league hiring former Throttle Jam pilot, Dymitro Guzhva (UKR) as lead pilot for experience reasons and hiring former Tigron test pilot Treck Tauger (AUT) as second pilot. Their efforts were mostly fruitless outside of Guzhva winning the 2163 Katmoda 12 Grand Prix and Tauger holding off Omarr Khumala in the 2164 Vohl Square Grand Prix, the only tracks that the team refused to run on were Cubiss Float due to their craft's lack of proper equipment needed to run on the track and Temtesh Bay following the 2164 Temtesh Bay Disaster. GasTech Engineering went on to win 3 more races, all of which were achieved in 2169 wich Tauger winning the season opening Florion Height Grand Prix, Mandrashee Grand Prix with newcomer Delvin Gunther (USA) and the Katmoda 12 Grand Prix with Tauger which led to their maiden championship by winning a tiebreaker with Piranha's Vendaval Espenoza (ESP), however an intense argument that resulted in a fight between Visscov and Gaztevenov, when this emerged GasTech closed its doors and when the F9000 league collapsed, Tauger and Gunther were left with no outlet to test their racing prowess after denying that they had nothing to do with the scandals during their foray in the F9000 League.

    In 2209, a German businessman named Fritz Van Hamburg discovered what was left of the old GasTech facilities during on his way from a business meeting in Ukraine and also discovered blueprints of the old Throttle Jam quad-hull craft, this discovery sparked Hamburg's urge to enter in the FX350/400 Leagues. He was able to re-create not only the quad-hull craft not seen since Throttle Jam's foray in the F7200 league, but he was originally going to build an asymmetrical design with the cockpit set on the right side of the craft, the asymmetrical design was not seen since the Auricom T-808 model in the F9000 league, however this was scrapped for financial and FX350/400 regulation reasons. When Hamburg entered the FX350/400 scene in 2210 under the name "Zweigart Ltd." the craft was very aerodynamic despite the rather bulky quad-hull design, however, they only managed to earn success in some of the more technical circuits on the calendar in their first year and despite gaining two victories with FX400 rookie pilot Ghettson Moore (GBR) at Modesto Heights and Sebenco Climb with FX350 lead pilot Mattieu Strouf (GER), they were mainly a mid-pack running team.


    F7200 Craft: Cross between Auricom F7200 and AG Systems F5000 craft, Paint job is Red/orange flames over dark blue body.
    Thrust: 3/5
    Speed: 4/5
    Shield: 1/5
    Handling: 4/5

    F9000 Craft: Symmetrical edition of Auricom T-808, but slighty lightweight than the Auricom and with fins on both sides of the hull. Features a black and dark-green paint scheme with GasTech logo on both sides of hull
    (Stats un-upgraded)
    Speed: 1200 kph
    Stability: 60%
    Thrust: 0-700 in 1.5 seconds
    Mass: 923 kg
    Shields: 50 gsu
    Weapons: 70 gsu

    FX400 craft: Cross between Triakis FX350/400 and AG Systems F5000. Livery is silver crossed with white stripes around the inner-hull area with Zweigart motto "Godspeed for Zweigart" on the side of the outer hull.
    Speed: 7/10
    Thrust:10/10
    Shield:4/10
    Handling:3/10

    Default Hyperion ship

    Hello there,
    I don't know if this forum still works, but I found this in my research of new Wipeout team/ship.
    I want to share my past work with you and hopefully find some new ideas for future projects (which some of them are in progress now).
    It's been about half of year back since I ended my work on new Wipeout ship called "Hyperion".
    If there will be more people who would appreciate it, I want to share my current ideas and sketches with them and discuss a new design for new ship and most probably new team with corporate identity to it (I already have name for it).

    So this is Hyperion:

    Interesting backstory. But knowing my WipEout lore and lexicon, I'm not sure I'd name my racing team after the second slowest speed-class in the history of Anti-Gravity Racing!

    Wow. That looks fantastic. If I hadn't known better, I'd swear SL did it.

    Now that we've seen their FX-400 entry, can you tell us how they fit into the WipEout universe?

    From the Netherlands, perhaps? A team that began in the void between Xios downfall and the birth of EG-X?
    Maybe a lead designer for Qirex defects and starts his own team? I see a little Qirex in your ship design (a good thing), and maybe this explains the origin of the Hyperion chassis design?

    This sure has my brain running!

    Well, for the record, I was also considering "Illusion Technologies"
