I like the amount of work you could throw into something to make it not only look like an advanced ship, but an -old- advanced ship . . . it just feels like a damn sexy old broad.

Have you uploaded this to the wiki yet newcowboy? This deserves to be added to a full fleet group, especially now rings are now the Britannian Navy's "thing".


I didn't want to put it up on the Wiki until I got a opinion on it. Also, I'm glad you appreciate the aesthetic. Hence why I like Britannian ships. They look old, but secy as hell in a firefight. I'll put it up, and I;m actually thinking about doing a small little Soap Opera thing on the Britannians. Maybe give them a few advantages in the coming conflict.

Marchant Class "Lancer"/Sixth-Rater

Image

Another old member of the Brittanian Navy, the Marchant is an odd ship compared to typical Naval doctrine. It only boasts four Light Cannons mostly made for Anti-Fighter work. It's distinguishing feature is the over-sized Ram Accelerator as a main weapon, capable of tearing into Ships much greater in size. That, and the massive single engine gives the key to it's unofficial class name as a Lancer. It's main tactic is to get into range as fast as possible using it's Engine, fire a few shots into it's much larger target along with a few other lancers, before running off. It's considered by many Admirals to be a cheap tactic, unbecoming of a proper Fleet, but some smaller forces find it much cheaper to keep a hold of as a defense against larger vessels than a squadron of battleships.

And the admiralty doesn't seem to mind using them to annihilate enemy convoys either.

Loving the detailing at the front around the Gun.

We need a fleet inspection at Spithead. Really show off to the brikverse all these awesome Brittanian ships.

Over the years the Admiralty of Grey Sector has become increasingly incensed by the bureaucracy behind the Royal Navy's high command. Grey sector has been at the forefront of the Navy's modernisation program, something command has seen fit to put a stop to, lest the budget swell even more. This came to a head when Grey Sectors own Admiral R.J. Hadrian saw fit to abandon the warnings of command, and start trialling an entirely new paradigm in Britannian warship design.

As a pet project, Hadrian requisitioned numerous warships destined for the scrap. Each was stripped, and their space-frames welded together, producing a franken-ship of monstrous proportions. This vessel was a proof of concept for a new kind of heavy warship design, abandoning Brittania's investment in shield technology seen in the massive electro-magnetic ring that made the Glasgow-Class so recognisable. This prototype vessel, served its purpose well, and gave the command admiralty a credible reason to approve an increase in budget for full R&D, and production.

Image

The final product was the Lion-Class, a ferocious vessel worthy of the namesake. Heavily armed and armoured, the Lion class was built to lead battle-lines from the front. Plowing head first into enemy fleets, the Lion-Class can unleash 15,000mm of pure lead hell at a rate of 5 RPM from each individual artillery piece.

Image

Their newest vessel does still rely on outdated chemical rockets for propulsion. Brittanian naval engineers created the most efficient engine block design they could, moving the fuel tanks and fuel lines as far into the bowels of the ship as they could. This was to prevent the critical hits to highly explosive fuel cache's that Brittanian vessels often suffered.

Image

The ultimate feature that ensured the funding for the Lion-Class was Hadrian's inclusion of Aerofoils into the design mandate. Brittania lacked a capital class ship capable of atmospheric flight, something other star nations had ready access to. Engineers incorporated two pairs of variable geometry wings into the design, allowing for a range of atmospheric flight capabilities. Early tests even showed the Lion-Class capable of limited maneuvers such as barrel rolls and corkscrews, giving it a distinct advantage over other atmospheric capable capital ships.

Holy shit. That's really good. I love the part sticking out of the bottom, and the hooked nose.

I have to say, the Lion class is amazing.

Absolutely amazing Dilanski! I especially like the functional look of the ships, they give me the impression of a well honed force of destruction, with no frivolities (Except for maybe a hidden still between bulkheads) Except the best armour and the greatest weapons.
I also really like the unfying characteristic that the big ring adds, really adds a feel that this ship belongs with the others. If I had to pick a favorite it'd have to be the Lion-class. What a ship! What curves! What skillful use of of the hinge pieces that make up the engine cover. Well done!

Thanks, although newcowboy and scythe need a lot the credit for their vessels.
