Sketches – deWulf Mobile Heavy Shipyard

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

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…

Sketches – Krak Reverse-Engineered Heavy Cruiser

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

Is Karbov out to get you, or did you steal his favorite chair a second time?" "I only did that once. Jokes lose their impact the second time around. And… Continue reading Slush Pile

Sketches – Krak Survey Ship

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
