(SS) Excalibur replacement

#1
[Image: wlOvI9g.png]
Specifications:
Armament:
-12 400mm Shaped charge firing ACCs as the main armament.
- 4 triple 100mm sabot firing secondary guns.
- 3 7 meter long torpedo launchers on either side of the hull.

Protection:
- Armour is the thinnest in the front and rear ends of the hull, having only 1 meter of metal to protect those sections. However, these areas don't really contain anything truly critical for the ship's operational capability.
- Deck has 1 layer of wood with 1 layer of metal underneath for the entire lenght of the ship.
- The sides have an armour belt of 2-3 meters of metal, and the gun turrets have a separate layer of armour around them, resulting in up to 4 meters of total armour.
-The above surface areas are almost fully protected by reflector shields (the rear end of the pagoda mast is the only spot not covered)
-The ship's missile defense consists of 24 interceptor missile launchers mounted in top firing positions on the front and rear ends of the ship. The rear also has 6 flares
-The ship has laser smoke covering the most vital areas. It seems to perform fairly well against most Lighting Hoods' designs.
-The ship contains 50 repair bots (unless I made a mistake counting them)
-The ship uses counter flooding in order to keep itself from listing too much and to increase stability in general

Mobility:
-The ship moves at a top speed of roughly 12 m/s. The rudder setup allows it to turn in a fairly tight space for such a large ship.

In testing it scored around 80 FP, but it has probably been bloated by the fact that lasers don't work in tests. It's far from invincible (Lamb you Kobold), but it can certainly hold its ground against some of the biggest and baddest ships on Neter. Even when it does lose, I've seen it demonstrate an ability to keep fighting even with critical damage.
With the current version sitting at 10960 block count it is also a bit smaller than the current Excalibur. (I've done a lot of beaming.)

The design of the superstructure is somewhat inspired by the battleships and heavy cruisers of the Imperial Japanese Navy, with the large pagoda mast and hull mounted torpedo launchers.
Contains interior detailing, which is fully walkable. Here's a picture of a command center underneath the actual bridge, inspired by the Type 19.
