The Future

It had been almost two years since SPM Rollen had entered this office, and very little had changed. The furniture had been replaced, looking more in keeping with the changes of current fashion. The displays were as they had been, a few subtle changes where artifacts had been changed out. An early Lohengramm dynasty vase had been removed, replaced by handcrafted mirror of silver and brass. Rollen walked over to the new mirror, looking over at it. And carefully ignoring the owner of the office, quietly glaring at him from the desk that dominated the far side of the room.

Sketches – deWulf Destroyer Concept

A beauty sketch of the Slingshot-Class destroyer under power. Most likely before the First Contact War, in the Falke star system. This is one of my first sketches for the deWulf. It's actually old enough that it wasn't even in my coilbound sketchbook, but in an older hardcovered sketchbook (I get that it's more durable,… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Destroyer Concept

Sketches – deWulf Capital Ships

If big warships were effective, then bigger warships would be even better. Theoretical research suggested that a larger "battlecruiser" hull would be at a good breakpoint between speed and size, more than the current heavy cruiser or an even larger "battleship" hull. While naval designers would build a prototype battlecruiser, the design itself would find… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Capital Ships

Sketches – deWulf Heavy Cruiser

Almost immediately after the 1st Contact War, the need for bigger and better hulls was clear. Design work had actually begun towards the end of the war, but it wasn't until a year or two that the first deWulf Heavy Cruiser left the shipyard in Fenris orbit. While the prototype Light Cruiser hull was fitted… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Heavy Cruiser

Sketches – deWulf Light Cruiser

While not initially developed as part of its initial fleet, the deWulf Navy immediately began design studies of a warship larger than the destroyers currently in service. Memories of tonnage races in past informed the designers that larger, more capable hulls would be needed Soon™. It would be better to have the concept refined before… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Light Cruiser

Sketches – deWulf Combat Dropship

In service since the beginning of the deWulf Navy, the Mark-12 dropship has been the backbone of dedicated heavy lift capacity for the navy in every theater and operation. Initially prototyped as an open-cycle fusion drive craft for intercontinental rapid deployment, the development of the drive field instead transformed it into a broad-function troop and… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Combat Dropship
