Turbo-Kat by ZacharyMadere Turbo-Kat by ZacharyMadere
I've been wanting to take a stab at redesigning the turbo-kat for a long time, I loved SWAT Cats as a kid but it was suuuper cartoony. I just thought it would be really cool to see what it would look like realistic and updated with current or maybe future technology. I tried to stay true to the original design and general proportion as well as bring some functionality to it. The jet uses stealth materials but they couldn't resist having a cool paint job, of course! I had a lot of fun with this one!

Ahhh, brings back warm memories from my childhood. Very beautiful redesign. Love the F-35B-style engine intake on top, plus the swing wings, pivoting VTOL thrusters, the "claw mark" paintjob, and ... well, everything about it, really. Fantastic job!

Yes...Such a wonderful Turbo-Kat.  That was such a fun show.  I always wondered how anyone could afford the taxes living there since when anything blew up the mayors solution was to increase taxes.

Haha thanks! I wondered the same with Tokyo 3 in NGE, like stop rebuilding the city! Or are you just trying to keep an arena for these Angels? There's gotta be a better way!

Excellent work I do love the canopy quite a lot. Gives it an extra "scifi" touch

Thank you! It's my reinterpretation of the three claw marks coming off the canopy in the original design. ;)

Exactly. They never did a reboot, but it would've been cool to see what kind of direction they went. Maybe they still will...?

It's been twenty years since SWAT Kats was cancelled by TBS.
