What power level are the octuple barbettes because they seem to be a lot smaller then the heavy dual turbos

Robert Branca

at least high teraton range if not more what about the super and ultra heavy turbolasers

I think we might need an official weapons count from mr. Sponge when it’s done, if you don’t mind mr. Sponge.

Edit: Nevermind, now see that they’re re-oriënted neutrino radiators.

@Fractal, curiosity question: Those 8 greebles, lining the top and bottom of the quad ball turret notch in the side trench, what’s their function?

My favorite example of feature creep. This old gal started out as a Star Cruiser, went straight through being a battlecruiser, and then settled down as a dreadnought. Sometimes bigger really is better.

Dear lord..she’s absolutely beautiful! The sheer volume of fire she’d be able to vomit out would be terrifying! A quick question about the Bellator, does she carry fighters? I know she’s not got the huge hangar of the Executor (which always struck me as weird that a ship that HUGE would only carry 144 fighters) but I would assume she carries some even if its more for point defence and bomber interception duty than anything.

I believe it was a group of six wings, for a total of 432 fighters. That’s not considering potential variation based on the size of the fighters carried.

Oh blimey! Thats more than a Executor class, but I assume the Exe’s in this setting carry a LOT more fighters than the 144 of the canon ship, with her huge size probably something on the order of about 1000 fighters and small craft like TIE Manglers, or Starwings etc

Fractal I notice some of the Oct heavy turbolasers are missing why are they?

I’m spotting those warhead launchers on the brim and got shivers on the potential tonnage of firepower those giants have in store.

*edited* Found them! Those missile tubes look like they’d do a Russian Slava class cruiser proud!

I’m digging the look of that tweaked engine block/fantail region & the subtly deeper hull already. Plus, ye *gawds* the brim-greeble.

Missiles? Interesting… My superiors will be sure to enjoy this scouting report~

On a personal note, I believe this will be a very nice addition to the fleet, regardless of missiles!

It’s actually always had missiles, it has altogether 96 missile tubes.

Actually there are 108 missiletubes. 12 foreward firing at least on the original one

O did it have forward ones to? I thought it only had flank firing ones, well even better then.

Damn, she’s gonna be a beauty. I hadn’t noticed the missile batteries on the older model. With the size of the ship, each projectile would have to be the size of an Intersector, right?
