Sketches – Random Ship Design 1

Part of another design concept, I'm honestly not sure what inspired this particular design, but this was another exploration of different hull designs. The entire front is meant to be a single solid curve kind of like the front of an especially blunt fish. Casemate guns on the sides cover the forward 180 degree arc,… Continue reading Sketches – Random Ship Design 1

Sketches – deWulf Never Depot

When the deWulf Navy needs secure storage, they turn to the Never Depot. One of the earliest sustained military locations that was off-planet, this was where the the deWulf Corporate Democracy shipped any weapons of mass destruction after the unification war. While the weapons remained under Corporate Democracy control, the fact that they were stored… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Never Depot

Sketches – deWulf Army Base

While the deWulf Navy gets most of the attention (and the funding) the simple truth is that nothing is yours until it's your boots that are on it, and not the other person's. And to that end, that means you need boots. Boots with guns, tanks, air support, logistics, and everything else that making sure… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Army Base

Sketches – Tsiolkovsky / Ticonderoga Station

Following the discovery of the first extrasolar habitable planet in the Gagarin system, its colonization became a certainty as both the USA (precursor to the UNA) and the Russian Federation filed claims to different parts of the star system. While other national groups got their own claims in (the EU secured the outer asteroid belt),… Continue reading Sketches – Tsiolkovsky / Ticonderoga Station

Sketches – Terran Survey Ship

Originally built off of the old Star Class SAR ship, the Scout Class survey ship represents the standard survey ship found in Terran service. Their simplistic design, coupled with mass production meant that there was in practice little difference between an EU Scout, a UNA Scout, or even a RSSF Scout. The first Scouts were… Continue reading Sketches – Terran Survey Ship

Sketches – Brussels Class Lander

Designed concurrently with the Bastille Class Assault Battlecruiser, the Brussels Class Lander was a next generation multipurpose ground interface craft. Featuring a powerful open-cycle fusion engine, respectable armor and a flexible weapons suite, the Brussels is effective at almost every role it can be assigned. Series production initially started in conjunction with the first Bastilles,… Continue reading Sketches – Brussels Class Lander

Sketches – European Union Troop Cruiser

The standard troop carrier for the Marine Spatiale Européenne (MSE), and the United Nations, the Bastille Class Assault Battlecruiser was regarded as an excellent transport by most navies and their intelligence services. Unlike some other ships that try to handle multiple duties (The UNA's Kenneth Walsh Class Marine Cruiser) or were almost too small to… Continue reading Sketches – European Union Troop Cruiser

Sketches – North American Cruiser

The Guadalcanal-Class Multi-Role Cruiser was one of several designs serving in the North American Navy. Built around a core battery of laser mounts and an extensive VLS system, and supported by a reasonable point defense grid, the Guadalcanal could effectively handle most duties that could be expected from a line cruiser. Enhanced by a series… Continue reading Sketches – North American Cruiser

Sketches – Russian Space Fleet Cruiser

The Kosmicheskie Voyska Flot Rossii (hereafter Russian Space Forces Fleet, or RSFF) has been in existence for well over two hundred years, tracing its history all the way back to military spaceflight under the old Soviet government that was one of the founders of human space flight. One of the last classes deployed before the… Continue reading Sketches – Russian Space Fleet Cruiser
