[BB16] Destroyer HMS Hood; UK Royal Navy

Post by Valiant » Sun Jan 31, 2016 11:37 pm

It's a day late, but it's here. :D

Entering service in BR 2,016, the HMS Hood is the first water naval craft ABS Systems has been contracted to construct. Armed with a dual-purpose 4" 75mm launcher, the Hood is perfectly capable of patrol and escort duties. With the addition of a skiff and two Royal Naval Marines, she can raid inspect suspicious vessels.

The turret looks really cool, but I feel that you could fit a lot more dakka on this ship.

Definitely more dakka. Modern navy ships have automated point defense turrets (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phalanx_CIWS) that would be cool and small enough to add. The superstructure could also use a door on the side or something; its a little plain atm.

Otherwise, its really cool. I like the main turret design and bridge.

Well said my good friend. By the way, cute signature. Is it from Knights of Sidonia?

Hi Valiant,

What Torso are you using for the Royal Marines? They're pretty badass. The ship is badass too, the marines just caught my eye :D

Where? The only good shot of the marines has their guns in the way of the body, for all I can see the torso might just be plain black. :?

Awesome stuff valiant, as always, all I have to say is that it might be a little longer (it kinda looks a bit short and stubby) and more drakka.

Armed with a dual-purpose 4" 75mm launcher,
The fuck? Those calibers are nowhere near each other, unless you mean it fires 101x75mm shells? Even then 4" barely counted as destroyer armament back during the Second World War.

Sorry, I was referring to the marines as badass as a whole and I was wondering if he went with "as long as they're black" torsos or he used torsos with a specific print. My bad for not being clear on that :(

Pretty sure 4" is the BrikWars Weapon Size stat, and 75mm is the caliber.

Yep, you've nailed it.
Don't worry RaginKrikkit, it's not as impaired as it seems :D.

The torso is from the 2012 Star Wars Tie-Fighter set.
