"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
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
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
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
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
annihilation missiles. The design itself originates from the Ceres Type Transporter, right from the golden age of trade, before the fringe colonies rebelled.

I couldn't come up with anything smart, original or funny, so <=THIS=> is what you get.
