This design comes from expanding the idea of the Weaver-class SYM. It also lifts a couple of other design elements that exists from larger ships as well, namely the forward shuttle bay and larger quad engine mount. Unlike the Weaver, which has a single forward facing extendable gantry, this mobile heavy yard has a series… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Mobile Heavy Shipyard
Munitions Assembly Plant Mittelspannung Shipyards Fenris Orbit deWulf Corporate Democracy An army marched on its stomach. A navy sailed on fuel. Both fought with ammunition. All three were old truisms that predated spaceflight. Ever since word of the Elysian attack had reached Fenris, the munitions plant that was a part of the Mittelmach shipyards had… Continue reading Our Home Fronts Have Given Us An Overwhelming Superiority…
Since I'd designed out most of the freighters for the other major powers, I thought that it would be worth building out what the Krak would use as well. The design concept here is both building off of what the Krak prefer to have (IE modular systems), but also making it clear that it's not… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Freighter
This sketch is a bit of a derivative design. The Krak recovered several combat ships from a flotilla of automated warships in a dead-end system several jumps out from the Sargasso Nebula, and it got them a plethora of technologies. One of those technologies was practical examples of larger combat hulls than they could initially… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Reverse-Engineered Heavy Cruiser
So! As part of 2020, I've decided to take part in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge! In a nutshell, I'll be doing 26 posts in April, one for every letter from A to Z. Each post will touch on a part of the deWulf universe in some way. Some of them might… Continue reading A to Z – Get Your Words In!

January has been a bit more involved than I had originally expected, but that's sadly par for the course. We picked up a pretty impressive snow day about halfway through the month, and that kind of blew some of my schedule out of the water. That, and of course discovering that I had been a… Continue reading January Sitrep
Basically a flying tuning fork, the key parts of this design (aside from its simplicity) are the deliberate provision of "spare" space, and the split hull design for the engine mounts. Krak ships are designed to be especially modular, with critical systems capable of being pulled and swapped as needed. This is a result both… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Survey Ship
