Formerly a member of the long-gone New World Explorer fleet, the Hawk-class fighter jet soared through space on many a scout mission. The single-engine fighter was the fastest and most versatile fighter in the fleet, but was lightly armed and armored. It does have a large fuel tank and powerful engine, plus twin blasters tipping the wings. The wing ends are also reinforced, so that only one extending landing gear leg (located under the main power converter) is necessary to land the craft and balance it perfectly on flat surfaces.
The construction of the ship itself is quite unique, employing multiple advanced building techniques. Not only that, but the wings rotate with perfect friction, and the cockpit opens to seat a minifigure at the controls.
This was one of Brickster_Tim’s LEGO Ideas projects, first released Summer 2016. While it never received much support, it is still worth posting here.

In a futuristic ruined world, a group of creepy marauders, in impractical gas guzzling war machines, attack a ruined building…
Fire the cannons on The Wrecker at the ruin, blast stuff with the cannons on the motorcycle, eat all the food in the fridge in the ruined building, fight off the marauders, and graduate college… Two of these have nothing to do with the set…
This set features a large tank car (‘The Wrecker’), huge flaming motorcycle, ruined building, cannon, and 9 minifigures (5 marauders, 4 survivors).
