Great! My only note: the location of the guns near the air intake is no very good idea, because gunsmoke after shooting can get into the engine and cause compressor stall.

Thanks for comment! The guns aren't actually guns, though they could be. It's just a generic component. It's up to the viewer to decide what it is.

Very nice! Buddy of mine worked on an aircraft carrier. Good job on the steam. It's kinda scary if you think about it that a steam-powered launcher is still the best way to launch an aircraft in such a short space. I like the "Get Some!" message next to the munitions. I do hope I'm not on the receiving end of that. Excellent work on the perspective. It gives great depth to the image.

Thanks a lot! Btw, you know steam-powered catapults
are being replaced with electromagnetic ones, right? I was thinking
about that when I made this artwork. I decided to use steam-powered catapults
rather than electromagnetic ones because steam would give the artwork 
somewhat industrial/mechanical feel as well as show motion. 
Lol. Thanks again for the comments!

Electromagnetic ones? Interesting. It's like shooting a plane off using a railgun.

However, you cannot overlook the dramatic effect of the steam from the old school catapults. It's quite high on the awesome scale. Unless we get electric arcing and sparks, the railgun is going to be nothing but a bunch of boring art/photo wise.

That is some bad ass nose art on that jet! Not to mention the bad ass jet itself.
