I don't have any exact figures in mind for this, but it was suposed to be around a similar size to a WW2 cruiser/ pocket battleship

so around about 150 meters long , maybe 50 meters wide ( at the widest part where the two pylons extend outwards) 20 meters approx along the vessel width ways at the narrowest, and around 30 meters height

I like how hardcore, well-armed, and down-to-earth this looks.

thanks, i'm glad you like that aspect, i designed itmainly to be simple and effective, so i dispenced with the usual aesthetics and went for more function

I wonder what would happen if your RNAF and mine His Majesties Royal Navy collided? It might be a draw but our tech is a bit more advanced. Cool arship desing though.

hmm, could be a nasty showdown, a nifty feature of my designs is that they keep firing even when they get taken out

all the guns have their own independent power and firing system , so even if the entire crew is killed and the ship is adrift it'll still be in the fight

so its a fight to the the bitter end , as the marines say , always hold the line!

interesting, shouldn't be too much of a problem in combat, as the guns i decided to go for are high fire rate, smaller banks of high fire guns ( i have changed this a little since the early uploaded designs) so the high ablation rate may well be higher than the armors regeneration speed

though it does mean you can do field repairs faster than my ships can


also i wonder if that would still work under attack from
S.S.E.M.P rounds (static saturation EMP), they are designed to wreck sensor grid nets, but they work on most advanced electronics

its an advanced weapon system fitted to the DOVE class ship, its based on the Hawk class, but its refitted as an escort, with advanced sensor grids

Later Imperial ships have AI's that can learn and adapte but only heavier warships have that.
