[RELEASE] GTC Bellerophon HTL



After Capella Incident, Han-Roland Corporation executive director decided to get back to production of ships larger than 150m by a special request of Security Council. Gaining advantage from research of shivan technology done by Nankam Aeronautical in their Project Vali, Han-Roland's engineers had access to the most sophisticated and advanced technological solutions available for the Alliance. First from new line of warships, the Bellerophon was designed as fast, agile warship capable of responding to suddenly appearing treats in the remote sectors. Designed to fight shivan light cruisers, fighters and bombers, the Bellerophon quickly replaced aging Fenris cruisers and become mainstay escort unit of the GTVA. Armed with 7 anti-fighter beams, single, next-generation, spinal beam cannon and lots of additional point-defence turrets, Bellorophon is a joy to escort for attending fighters. A complement of Bellerophons is already delivered to the biggest fleets. Bellerophon-class cruisers are expected to serve GTVA fleet for almost 50 years thanks to versatile mainframe designed to be easily customizable.

Now quickly! Before Newsletter arrives! I want to set my own record this month and it will be 4 high-quality models :P.
Rebuild of old model released by Inferno in 2011. Requested by Starwolf1991 for his mod project, this one was a pleasure to be working with. I wanted quick, and elegant update to not ruin original design. Credit to original model goes for Venom and Woomeister.

Re: [RELEASE] GTC Bellorophon HTL
This looks awesome, glad to see it get a modern release.

Based on the description though, doesn't it sound like it could replace all Capella-era Terran cruisers (not just the Fenris as you said)?  It sounds like it has the anti-fighter weaponry to be a Aeolus replacement too.

 
Re: [RELEASE] GTC Bellorophon HTL
Wow! The SPEED!

Original design (and probably mesh) was from Venom/Nico, conversion was made by Woomeister. Was mentioned here:

This is great; I always liked this vessel.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

Dunno. I prepared post-capella tech description in hurry, for release purposes while this model was prepared for Post-Great War Sol setup in mind. Released version has a kick against fighters and bomers, but she has only single SGreen in spinal turret. Although capable of ripping off Cain quickly, she really lacks anti-capital firepower... But you can always mount MGreen/MBlue here :].

Or a BBlue to make it a stronger Terran Lilith?  :D

The Lilith might still have an advantage because the LRed has a much quicker recharge rate though the BBlue has a range and damage advantage.

Ask Venom. I just update things :P

Whole main, front part is leaning, but it is her most distinctive feature so I like it this way. If I just align this part to follow Z, it would make her quite generic. Also it makes top turrets partially capable of firing forward.

Re: [RELEASE] GTC Bellorophon HTL
the nice thing about this ship is, if one would want they could make a corvette or even a destroyer  by making it longer

Re: [RELEASE] GTC Bellorophon HTL
BTW it should be called Bellerophon, not Bellorophon.

  
Re: [RELEASE] GTC Bellorophon HTL
Treat her well, folks, and give her a good home.  It's a wonderful ship that deserves the love. Couldn't be happier with her final form  :D
