The style is largely inspired by the Eagle Transports from Space: 1999 and the Cygnus from Disney's The Black Hole. I wanted to capture the sparse, no-frills, industrial feel of the NeoSov approach to warfare.
Each ship is constructed of modular components that allow them to engage in a variety of missions. The main weapon is the dual-mount railgun turret, followed by the turrets of nuke-tipped smart missiles. The carrier packs a complement of Ferret-class heavy fighters.
First, the Frigate (2 railgun batteries, 2 propulsion modules):
Destroyer (3 railgun batteries, 3 propulsion modules):
Light Cruiser (4 railgun batteries, 4 propulsion modules):
Heavy Cruiser (6 railgun batteries, 6 propulsion modules):
Battlecruiser (4 railgun batteries, 2 missile turrets, 8 propulsion modules):
Battleship (9 railgun batteries, 2 missile turrets, 12 propulsion modules):
Dreadnought (12 railgun batteries, 8 missile turrets, 12 propulsion modules):
Heavy Carrier (6 railgun batteries, 2 Launch/Recovery Modules, 12 propulsion modules)
And a group shot:
All the ships were built from these basic elements:
I realize now that I should have designed a lighter-weight gun for anti-fighter use, and the turrets are a little off, somehow. Maybe they're too big. I'll have to think more on that concept.
