M.O. Engineering Hypaspist Class Frigate resub

#1

Generation 1 Fleet
Magnum Opus Engineering is proud to present the opening line of our naval series the Generation 1 fleet. Because of their place as the opening line, the gen 1 crafts have been named after fierce warrior classes of Earth’s history. The gen 1 series are designed with an emphasis on defence and as such will make good test beds for future technologies.

The gen 1 fleet incorporates a number of our signature design features that are assured to give the customer an edge in naval expansion. All craft utilize our proprietary composite armour and are designed to be streamlined, resource efficient, survive significant damage, and support each other in a fleet. Our ships can accommodate modular weapon systems and utilize standardised components.

Role: Escort, close range fleet support.
Overview and Background: 
The elite greek hypaspists of the army of Alexander the Great were tasked with guarding the vulnerable flanks of the phalanx. Just like these warriors the Hypaspist Class Frigate is fast, tough and lethal at close range. She is useful as an escort and supporting vessel of both combat and supply fleets. 


Because of her small size the Hypaspist approach to combat is highly aggressive to give her a fighting chance when outmatched. Two twin '88mm Tax Collector' beltfed miniguns and short ranged missile make her lethal against lightly armoured surface vessels and air-born threats equally. Her armour is quite moderate for her size with 2 layers of metal and 1 LWA outer layer. 

Some drawbacks to her belt fed armament and light armour means that the Hypaspist is unsuited to enduring long battles and should withdraw behind friendly units before reentering the fray. Limited detection and defensive systems means she is vulnerable to large vessels, submarines and direct energy based weapons. 

Overall the hypaspist is an effective patrol, escort and damage multiplier in the right circumstances and is well suited to fleet operations.

Cost: 59936
Dimensions: L 91, W 15, H 20.
Maximum Speed: 40 knots (21m/s), 21 knots reverse (15m/s)
Powerplant: 2000 hp fuel engine

Propulsion: 10 large propellors
Fuel Efficiency: 1.8 fuel per second at 50%, 4 fps at full draw
Weapon Systems: 2 twin 88mm "Tax Collector" miniguns firing AP kinetic rounds at 600rpm, 840 rounds per firing piece, 12 short range, single frag, radar guided missiles
Armor:
Hull: 2 M,1 LWA composite
Deck 1 M, 1 LWA composite and in some places 2 LWA
Superstructure: 1 M, 1 LWA composite
Defensive Systems: 2 flare launchers in stern, 8x repair bots.
Detection Systems: 1x forward 90 degree radar, 2x port 90 degree radar; 1x 360 radar; 2x telescopic gimbal tracker; 2x 7m rangefinder; 1x laser tracker

Strong Against: Light surface vessels, airships and aircraft, short engagements.
Vulnerable Against: Large calibre weapons, heavily armoured vessels, EMP, HEAT, long engagements and submarines

You should condense you ships into a single post so that we can admire all them at once. Nicely done

Hmmm, you mean just delete this thread and string all the craft onto the original post?

I don't know if that needs to happen. Maybe do what eagle does and make links to send people to your designs?

Or stay in one thread instead ya make a new thread. Because making newest thread i feels like smells like attention seeker. So, I strongly suggest that Focus on one thread for ya Ship stuff. However there's an exception. If ya wanna make the ground units. Yeash, ya can open the new thread for ya stuff. The same thing with the other types as well.

That sounds like a great idea, and I just had a go at it. Only problem is once i condensed the two plus a submarine i maxed out the image cap. Gotta have those sweet pics, any ideas?

Nice unit, really, I like especially what you did inside. Nice job for those turning turbines/generators next to engine, looks great!

This things packs some punch also: nice jobs with APS spamgun of hell. As they are very effective against fliers, I tried ad installed a dedicated AA mainframe controling aft turret only, to prioritize small targets (something simple: mainframe, wireless emitter, target prioritization card). Well, it defeated a Tortuga and its escort... Smile

Only drawnback I found is that it lacks durability (no shields or LAMS, light armor only), but it's hard to ask more to such small thing. Great job! Big Grin

Did ya mean the Image platform? Try to use Imgur to for the image stuff. Im not sure the other external website for Image hostings.

About what I said before. I can show the example I made the threads about all my vehicles in separate branches
