Clearly not since it has defined rotation times and a max speed of 25m/s.
Plus the shipyard model itself is longer than 2 clicks. I guess this is resized Vexor, or one of Cadius' models.
...You guys, the description makes quite clear that it's based on the Murugan.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

What is it about Nagari tempering that enables the formation of the UEF and council of elders, which is hinted to be an unnatural development?

Who exactly are the Vishnans, and why do they exist?

How did Laporte end up playing such a seeming pivotal role in the conflict, and what happens if she were to die?

Will we get the chance to take out any more of the major antagonist  TEV assets? Atreus, Imperieuse, Serkr team being the obvious examples but a certain Vasudan admiral also comes to mind.

Is a TEV victory in the war a definite FED defeat or will the finale be a bit more ambiguous than that?

I forgot, what is Severanti doing right now?

Is it likely that, at the culmination of the Sol War, both sides will believe that they have won?

Is it likely that, at the culmination of the Sol War, both sides will believe that they have won?

Is both sides a fair assessment of the complexities involved or can the non human factions be seen as their own 'sides'?

What is Ken's goal?

What were the Vishnans trying to accomplish during the events of AoA? What are their overall goals?

1: How will the heat death of the universe affect the Shivans?



This next ones a bit out there.   :drevil:

 2: Let's say I (out of spite) encrypted "Alpha 1 giving middle finger.png" into the DNA of a highly extremophilic Terran microbe artificially modified to live in the atmosphere of a Y-class brown dwarf; and thus allowing them to survive into heath death longer then any other form of life; would these "Terran lifeforms" survive the Shivans via technicality and be able to mock/insult the Shivans on a personal level via Alpha 1's angry likeness living on in their genetic code?

Or is this quest for galactic bragging rights just a hollow victory gone to far?   :p

If Baru Cormorant would be part of the BP universe, what would she be doing and how ****ed would the people she's doing it to be?

Any "chance" of a final battle between the two "big ships" (AoA)? ;)

Plus the shipyard model itself is longer than 2 clicks. I guess this is resized Vexor, or one of Cadius' models.

I hope not. I guess this ship is quite important for the storyline, so it should be unique and recognizable.

We know how the Murugan looks, that does not look like one.
For all we know, the hull was used, so it is possible, that the Murugan is Shambala and that thing is a mobile construction facilty.

Guys, the image caption on the wiki page says "Saab shipyards". That should give you a hint as to what you're looking at.

Even if you agree with their actions, they are the antagonists of the War in Heaven story (well, the physical war part of it) by virtue of opposing the protagonist.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

My understanding is that they are a subsidiary of Volkswagen.

 
Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
Saab is destroyed in the epilogue of Darkest Hour ("Can anyone confirm the Saab shipyards are gone?" on FLEETNET), yup. The obvious conclusion is that the ship already exists.

(Not the oracle, but...)

Loosely.
On the next assiding episode of Ricardo Laporte's Exigent Adventures, our hero discover a corruptions in the fleet commands that go all the way to the top. To stop these bastardos, he most once again go rouge and infiltrate the Miami drag scene.

What you're saying is "antagonist" does not necessarily equal "bad guys", correct?

 
Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
Protagonist and Antagonist are terms that refer to perspective more than motivation. You can have a villain protagonist and a hero antagonist. For example, in a movie where you're following a mass murderer going around murdering people he's the protagonist while the detective trying to stop him is the antagonist.

Or in most multiplayer games you can take control of an 'evil' faction and fight the good guys. When you're playing counterstrike for half the game the Terrorists trying to blow **** up are the protagonists of that game and the CTs are the antagonists.
