I am releasing a ship i have been working on and off for a while for Solaris, the Impetus Class battleship. I have gone back to it and finished it off. The model itself was made by the talented CGpitbull. I have merely tweaked it and converted for Freespace use. I saw the model an thought yeah that would look mint in the Freespace engine. Also the fact it has some similarities to the Omega destroyer from B5, which i love.
WARNING: The table file i have put together for this is extremely unbalanced so you may wish to adjust it accordingly
The Impetus class battleship is a pre-great war warship. Armed with 3 forward and 3 rear heavy mass drivers, 3 forward railguns, 8 vertical launch missile silos and 2 side torpedo tubes. It also has several layers of reinforced armor to allow it to stay in the fight. It was designed to jump into enemy formations and devastate them with the opening salvo, causing panic and confusion amongst the enemy.
Due to the space, cost and power the weapons systems took required it was decided that the ship would be fitted with spin gravity for the crew to operate in. Another set back is the due to the weapons being fixed, with the exception of the missile tubes, the whole ship must maneuver in order to bring its main weapons to bare, to which hostile targets could use that to their advantage.
Despite the flaws the Impetus is still a terrifying presence on the battlefield
