Stiletto-Class Fighter Engine Inconsistency[edit source]

While I was researching this page for a video, I noticed that the source of the Fighter's engines seems to change at various points of Corruption. I'm not sure if this is a mistake on Retro's part or that these engines are indeed different. Here is what I mean:

Engines are displayed at the base of the guns.

Engines are displayed coming from the rear of the body of the ship where thruster-like objects are.

Is this intentional? Are there four engines on the Stiletto? If so, are the ones mounted on the body for acceleration and speed, while the ones on the wings are for combat/agility? It would make some sense. Though I would like to know if this is a mistake on Retro's part or not. ThatMetroidGuy (talk) 22:44, July 24, 2019 (UTC)

More showings of engine inconsistencies: 

Engines at the base of the weapons are in use. Other "booster"-like objects on the main body.

Engines appear on the body once again.

I do hope that these are just different engines serving different purposes, which would make the most sense and be a reasonable explanation. ThatMetroidGuy (talk) 23:52, July 24, 2019 (UTC)
Could just be a different type of model. Or it could be the camera angling. 3-D model ripping should be recommended... DarkraiShadowXZ (talk) 01:43, July 25, 2019 (UTC)

(Edit) The fourth picture does seem rather interesting...perhaps brakes, added acceleration, or hydraulics? More studies on its internal workings may be needed...  DarkraiShadowXZ (talk) 01:56, July 25, 2019 (UTC)

I think it would be a bit too far to suggest it's an entirely different model, nor are the angles an issue. The flames from the engines are clearly displayed coming from a set of engines and there's no way to mistake it. The second set of pictures are more concrete and clear though. I would really like to see a Model rip for this as I'd like to get a full view of the Stiletto from every angle. The fourth picture is shown at the beginning where the ships accelerate to extreme speeds, so what I'm thinking is that the ship does indeed have 4 engines, but 2 sets. The engines on the body are the ones used for maximum speed, while the engines on the wings are more for mobility and easy turning in dogfights. What I did notice is that the flame placement changes from early in the game and later in the game; the first half it shows the flames coming from the body, the second half it shows the flames coming from the wings. It's really odd. ThatMetroidGuy (talk) 12:56, July 25, 2019 (UTC)
