Sketches – Small Shuttle Hangar

As part of the design work that has been put into the Augen Mk1's deckplans, I did a bit of a look at the hangar for her single small craft. As with many smaller ships, working compartments often have to do double duty. Especially when they take up a fair amount of internal volume AND… Continue reading Sketches – Small Shuttle Hangar

Sketches – deWulf Defense Station BS4

As spaceships grew larger, so did defensive space stations in turn. The current (as of 11.0 AS) state of the art is the massive Base Station 4 hull, massing as much as a dreadnought in raw size. Unlike a dreadnought though, a station does not need to devote a large fraction of its internal space… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Defense Station BS4

As larger hulls became not just possible but economical, new cargo ships entered service to take advantage of economies of scale. One of the most common is the… Continue reading Sketches – Provider Forward Bay

Sketches – Container Lighter

There are multiple models of container transporters in deWulf space. Most of them are larger models seen at more established ports, capable of quickly and securely docking onto containers before hauling them either across the port or in and out of orbit. But these transporters are expensive, maintenance intensive, and most critically bulky. UAC's G-Schiff… Continue reading Sketches – Container Lighter
