Been working on this jointop with Raven for a while, it's a really large fleet carrier.


Raven did the hull and the arms (more recently than the body). I've done the bottom spire + assembly behind it. Current areas I've made/working on are the bridge, spine, and hangarbay/docking area. Bridge is more recent and hangarbay/spine are heavy WiP while the bottom spire is finished. Right now it's basically about bringing the model up to snuff, parts have been being remodeled pretty steadily the past year, such as the arms, spire, bridge, spine, and hangarbay area.

[22:29] <sigtau> Hello, #hard-light?  I'm trying to tell a girl she looks really good for someone who doesn't exercise.  How do I word that non-offensively?

Much bigger, it's 3km long. That doesn't mean it's super powerful though. You'll notice that it had a lot of empty space. Think of it as a better armed Arcadia, with heavier weaponry and engines.
Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?

Soooo... If it's supposed to be a carrier...

Where do fighters go?

Those entrances seem to lead directly to where the reactor and engines would be. Doesn't seem to be much room for hangars.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Nahhh, there's plenty of space, remember it's quite big.
And the SCP's ships of that generation don't need reactor's as big the GTVA's ships, since they don't have to feed huge beam cannons.

Reactor goes between the two engines, hypothetically there would be space for one on each side but as mentioned it doesn't need a lot of raw throughtly power, it basically needs little more than what is needed to move and run the radars and other support systems, it's weapons are mainly anti-fighter, it's anti-capital weapons exsist and it might be able to tank damage well enough to take out a destroyer, but if it gets into that sort of fight it's lost allready because that means it's escort of 1-3 Orion destroyers, 3-6 Grendel dreadnoughts, and dozen or so Freki/Finris/Leviathan cruisers have been destroyed. It's mainly a giant support ship, supplying repair and fabrication services as well as long range radar and comunications support. And of course being a hell gate spewing forth an absurd number of fighters, which is where its real offinsive power lays. The number of fighter and bombers it houses and supplies makes it a regional power unto it's self and often a command ship.

It's nearly as wide as an orion is long, though it probably would be 1.5X the mass, lot of empty space, including internal. The main bay is large enough to acomidate/repair small cruisers, and iirc this might be the only ship big enough to deploy Vanir strategic bombers. Sol only has a hand full of these and each one represents a huge chunk of their fleet.
