Me, I'm just wondering why those two lower engine pods are tilted downward rather than even with the keel....

EDIT: huh, the front lower pod is also tilted slightly downward as well. Weird.
They were not engine pods in original version. I kinda added engines at the tips during remodelling. Also although the sections are placed diagonally, exhausts of the engines are perfectly horizontal. As for the pod, I see no reason why it should not be facing slightly downwards.

Besides it's FS. Design school of FS warships is more about unique aesthetics and fancy style rather then utilitarianism. Keeping key visuals is one of the iron rules of graphic designer, so I can't just straighten all lines... And neither do I want to. Boreas was always one of my favorite designs of original INFR1 and I would accept this as potential design for FS3. It's something new, fresh, unique and original but also it keeps the style of FS warships perfectly.

Functionally, the Boreas is essentially a Terran Ravana correct?
Yeah, but unlike Ravana, Boreas it's heavily armored at cost of fighterbay.

Do you mean the Boreas has a relatively small fighterbay for a destroyer...or no fighterbay at all?

It has fighterbay, but it's small. If I remember correctly, Boreas carry something like 45 strikecraft onboard.

But man, this trio of beam cannons on the front... Who needs a fighterbay when you have something like that :P

Yes, well, the Ravana has a quartet of beam weapons instead of a trio and it's asymmetrical, so there! :p

...I'll let myself out. :nervous:

You put 45 strikecraft in the same missionspace (at the same time) and it'll get **** done 😂👍

 
Good fireworks guaranteed, yay

Now try making sense of the Deimos

It provides movement across several axis.
