OK, let me rephrase my comment:
You have a habit of making alien tech eerily so similar to contemporary human technology on present day Earth, despite the aliens coming from a completely separate tree of life, with a drastically different body plan and their base DNA having different chemistry to Earth DNA.
Nice, and interesting. I couldn't tell at first where the pilots went. In fact I'm still unsure. It's the grey pods under the upper 'wings', right? But kudos on making it look mechanically and physically plausible, yet still inhuman.
I wish I could commission you to reveal something like this for the Birrin.
