So it's finally here, yay!
So, here is the Knight. It's quite the powerful ship, almost ridiculously powerful if it weren't for the fact it was a battleship. I even was unlazy this time and wrote a tech description for it!
First introduced in NC0116, the League Star Forces Knight-class battleships serve as flagships LSF fleets and its various battlegroups, as well as the guardians to the lightly protected Champion-class carriers. Unlike most LSF capital ships, the Knight spreads out its anti-capital armament evenly so as to be able to rapidly respond in the case of an enemy capital flanking attack. Due to the high-value target this ship class carries, the Knight has a compliment of 24 Ray Mk III, Kaze, or Dragonfly-class fighters of its own which it can rapidly deploy in the emergency of a strikecraft attack and the Champions are unavailable to send fighters to protect it.
As of NC0145, there are currently 254 Knight-class ships constructed and in service, each with an average crew size of 600 personnel. The 2nd fleet presently has most of the Knights with 102 ships, with the remaining 152 spread out proportionately amongst the other LSF fleets.
As with all LSF ships, the Knight is fitted with reflective armor, which is effective at absorbing hits from energy-based weapons, but is considerably less durable against solid projectiles.
Includes a template for GIMP users to make their own nameplates. Requires the Space Age font to be installed to use.Known Issues:
* Theres a small hole on the underside of each of the big cannons. It really isn't noticeable though, especially during combat. I may fix it later, but I just can't be bothered right now to fix it. I just want to see it out the door. =p
