Hellian naval catalog

Postby Gorthaff » Mon Mar 10, 2014 2:38 pm

"Let This sign the beginning of something truley Epic." said the Great Founder, and brought down the centuries old stamp on the constitution. And thus the Corporate State of Hellios was founded.

My faction is ready, more backstory, LDD stuff and infantry is on the way. For now appease yourselves with this microspace recreation of my SHIP.

Artemis Type Frigate
Image
Image

The Artemis Type was the first vessel to utalize the inertialess "stutter-warp" drive, giving it an edge over all of its counterparts, and propelled the corporation from being a local manifacturer to the mammoth it was before it decleared independance. The design changed very little over the decades, through wich it has formed the stable backbone of the Department of Defenses naval arm. The main idea of the design is to outmanouver larger ships and use its main cannon to hit weakspots.

More ships are to come, criticism is appreciated as always. (not mutch to criticise yet though :) )

And here we go...

Hades Type Corvette
Image

The Hades type was originally developed from the artemis, as a freighter. Its larger hull allowed for a greater cargo hold, and it still retained the superb speed of the smaller ship. With the coming of the expansion conflicts, the Hades war repourpoused as a mainline warship. It is still present in the modern fleets, with upgraded weapons systems as an escort for larger capitals. It excels at taking out fighters, but due to the lower manouverability, it easilly falls prey to cruisers.

Deimos Type Destroyer
Image

The Deimos is the firs full blown warship to be developed by the Department of Defense. It is relatively agile, well armed, but somewhat fragile. These design choices set the guidelines for many more ships to come. It is worth noting the ALPhA (Advanced Linear Phase Accelerator) Cannon running down the ventral side of the ship. This is a device that focuses all the vessels energy output into accelerating a grape sized Thorium pellet to near lightspead, resulting not only in a devastating kinetik impact, but a secondary, compressed nuclear explosion. This weapon, although highly effective, can only be used once in any sane combat situation, given it takes about five hours to fully charge the condensators. That is on full power draw, life support excluded.

Scylla Type Missile Destroyer
Image

As the expansion conflict drew to a close, it became apperant, that the Old Empire simply could not outproduce the alliance of independent colonies, even with the full industrial capacity of Hellios AstroTech tasked with building warships. sooner or later every spaceborn engagement turned into a gigantic melee where the ships further back simply had no LOS on their targets, since their own fleet blocked it. The situation asked for a ship, that could stand back, and rain down Hell upon the enemy from afar. The centuries old teknology of missiles proved to be the answer. The Scylla has little to no armour, or agility, but it has an enormous cargo bay filled to the brim, with high yield BT-OT annihilation missiles. The design itself originates from the Ceres Type Transporter, right from the golden age of trade, before the fringe colonies rebelled.

This is nicely done- pretty well-built, and a refreshing change from giant space penises.

Your stuff is sleek, small but well detailed and the colour scheme is really good too. I'd like to see more of this stuff.

I love the unique style and color scheme. I can't wait to see more of these guys.

These are clever builds. You don't waste space or parts and I can appreciate that. The designs are intriguing and, combined with the color schemes, very eye catching. The Deimos is easily my favorite. You've packed a lot of detail into a very small amount of space. The angles are cleverly shaped. The color scheme is pleasing but I may be biased, since its similar to one of my own.

I'm really impressed with the descriptions as well. You have given pros and cons to each vessel. This has made them each more interesting while simultaneously revealing a great deal about your faction in a relatively subtle way. I also like that there is a sense of progression here, that the company made realistic and logistical design choices guided by existing systems and restraints.

Overall, very well done so far. I look forward to seeing whatever else you have to show us.

Mani Thanx to all of you guys, more ships are on the way, and I may have a magic soap-opera as well. Maybe tomorrow?

What type of weapon are you counting the Levers as?
Because if they are Small Lasers, they come across as a bit too lightly armed...

Light lasers kinda I guess, but they are not lightla armed. The frigate has a railgun in its belly, and the corvette has three Flak guns against fighters.

Double Post :oops:
In order to shamelessly increase my post count, instead of editing the original, the new stuff will just come in new posts from now. Enjoy.

Siren Type Cruiser
Image

This cruiser was thw first development made as an independent faction, and as such gave the designers more opportunitie to experiment. The outcome was this very organic looking chassis, which nit only gave a better surface/volume ratio, but showed better projecticle deflection values. This ship is relatively lightla armed, and is meant to foll more of a support role. Conducting long term reconaisance ,escorting a carrier or spearheading a ground invasion ar among the typical tasks of this vessel.

Gaia Type Carrier
Image

Encouraged by the sirens good performance, the design principle was continued, and the Gaia was born. Despite its small size, the hangarbays can fit five squadrons of gunboats and intereptors, or a full invasion battallion complete with artillery airsupport and armour. These vessels thanks to their long range,versatility and easy repairability have are in command of nearly all systems' defense fleets.

These are just getting better and better, though I wish we had more pictures of the Gaia. These ships have a really consistent theme to them, and the organic shapes are well done.

More pictures of the carrier, as requested:

Charybdis type Heavy Cruiser
Image

Also titled a pocket battleship, the Charybdis was designed to accomplish missions that require large firepower, yet good range. The heavy cruisers, while lacking the heavy armour of battleships, can still withstand multiple vollies from a cruiser, and can take said cruiser out in one strike. They are used to boost firepower of expeditionary fleets, and bombard planets far from the main supply lines. While in combat a battleship can outclass this vessel in almost evry area, strategically it is an infinitly more versatile.

Athena Type Battleship
Image
Image
Image

The result of decades of experience in shipbuilding, and years of revising the plans is this pinnacle of Hellian engineering. It is capable of taking on any known battleship one on one, and annihilating them with an impressive array of weaponsystems, while evading their attacks thanks to its unmatched agility. Even thogh the armour protecting it is weker than standard battleplate, it does not matter, as it can easily move out of the way. This ship is utilized only in major engagements thanks to its huge sipplie demands, but when in battle it can not be defeated by any known ship no larger than it.

Believe it or not, this is almost exactly the same size as Schythe's Monarch.
