Get ye ships

The Laser Wars were a series of conflicts fought between the Kebb Confederacy and the Autonomous Systems Alliance over a territorial dispute triggered by the founding of colonies by Autonomous Systems Alliance citizens in Kebb Confederacy space.

Autonomous Systems Defence Forces
A very large, but under-funded force dedicated to the protection of the ASA, much of their equipment is very old and even the more modern elements are built with cost, rather than effectiveness in mind.

ASDF-D1 Kama
Image
The ASDAF-D1 Kama is the designation used by the ASDF to refer to V6-Marauders vessels built decades ago in vast numbers by the Jal-Tesson Engineering Company. Despite their age and many drawbacks V6-Marauders remain in service in navies throughout the galaxy due to their ease of maintenance and low cost.
Armament
4x Light Laser
2x Heavy laser


ASDF-D2 Nagamaki
Image
Built to favour fast-paced, close range combat against destroyer sized targets the Nagamaki is faster and more heavily armed than the Kama but lacks heavy armour.
Armament
6x Light Laser
4x medium laser (3 forward 1 rear)


ASDF-C1 Naginata
Image
The pinacle of military thinking the Naginata is like the Nagamaki except bigger and with more guns and armour. This breakthrough concept is set to change the face of space warfare forever as there is no known counter to a spacecraft with more guns and armour than previous spacecraft and the notion is so unique that no enemy could possibly replicate it.
Armament
8x Twin Medium Lasers
1x Twin Heavy Laser
3x Light Lasers (Two forward one rear)


ASDF-F1 Kunai
Image
The Kunai class gunship is the ASDF’s response to the generally superior range of Kebbian spacecraft. During an engagement large numbers of Kunai gunships are often deployed in order to screen heavier ships from fire whilst they move into attack range, they are also effective against artillery craft and other lightly armoured targets.
Armament
2x Light Laser


ASDF-F2 Bo
Image

When GORE entered the Laser Wars they brought with them a previously unknown weapon, tiny, unmanned ships carried by a parent vessel that when launched intentionally collide with enemy ships and detonate an internally carried explosive device. Whilst this concept may sound absurd these "missiles" (or Autonomous Single-Use Self-Guided Space Attack Vehicular Explosives as they are more commonly known) have proven to be a fairly formidable weapon in combat and the curiosity of the ASDF was piqued. The Bo is an experimental gunship designed to test the effectiveness of the new "missile" technology, it is small and fairly fast but its combat effectiveness is currently under debate.
Armament
2x ASSSAVE pods


Kebb Confederacy
The Kebb Confederacy has been furiously modernising its military over the last several years and it shows. Rather than employing archaic red lasers Kebbian ships are equipped with ultra-modern green lasers. Their engine technology is based on more ecologically sound ion drives rather than the crude and polluting fusion drives used by other militaries.

SVD02 River
Image
The River class destroyer is a modernised version of the V6-Marauder equipped with the green lasers and ion engines that are standard on all Kebbian spacecraft.
Armament
4x Light Laser
2x dual medium laser


SVD03 Stream
Image
A long range fire support destroyer intended to provide artillery support for more durable front-line ships like the River. The Stream is fast and heavily armed, but lacks defences and is vulnerable to strike craft.
Armament
5x Medium Laser
2x Heavy Laser


SV01F Hill
Image
Back in the glory days of the Kebb Confederacy men were men, women were women, hermaphrodites were both, metamorphs were usually one or the other but sometimes both or neither and space captains fought epic battles against evil enemies using incredibly huge lasers. The Hill class fire support frigate harkens back to those days, its heavy laser sub-cannons allow it hit very hard at medium range, though the short length of its cannon’s barrels make it unable to hit targets at very long ranges. The Hill class is fairly well armoured and fast, but manoeuvres poorly.
Armament
2x Snub-Superheavy Laser
3x Light Lasers (Two forward one rear)


SV01C Mountain
Image
When the Naginata entered service with the ASDF public opinion within the Kebb Confederacy was that the Kebbian navy was hopelessly outmatched in terms of firepower. Whilst the admirals of the Kebbian Navy were generally eager to tell the public exactly where they should shove their opinion an excuse for bigger ships and more military spending was an excuse for bigger ships and more military spending however you looked at it. So began the service of the Mountain, the first Cruiser class vehicle in the Kebbian Navy.
Armament
2x Superheavy Lasers
4x Medium Lasers
4x Light Lasers


SVF03 Ripple
Image
Originally devised as a counter to ASDF gunships the Ripple gunship was found to be fairly ineffective against other gunships, but it’s high speed and medium laser cannon made it effective at harassing enemy destroyers whilst remaining unharmed.
Armament
1x Medium Laser


SV02F Splash
Image
Whilst they had the defence budget at their mercy the Kebbian military thought they'd see what the big fuss was about regarding these newfangled guided projectiles, plus they had needed a new gunship for a while now anyway and were only holding off because nobody else was getting a new gunship.
Armament
1x Light Laser
2x Twin RPGMD

Man these are amazing.

(I know this is how its supposed to be but,...) These ships look like they are made of one piece. Keep up the great work!

I agree

I find it cute these designs, as well as how well they have been colored and displayed.
I can suggest you add one more blue race with their own variations? I would love if you did ...
otherwise, I believe that some ships are too much like those of the enemy race (in addition to the remarkable resemblance to the ships of "Star Wars" :P ). On second thought, that leaves the pattern of which are two organizations in the same race ... Forget it. :lol:
One more thing... I WANT MOAR!

These are sweet. Nice to look at and reading your backgrounds cracked me up. Will be fun to have multiple factions to play with. I like how they look but also some sort of underlying tron glow could be nice.

Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden
Widely regarded as religious extremists (also as complete and utter nutjobs), the Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden, or GORE, strives to make the universe a better place... by systematically eliminating anything they regard as impure, heretical, or just anyone that looks at them funny. GORE ships employ arcane and ridiculous "missile launcher" weapons, as well as bizarre, futuristic blue lasers and green engines they claim to have recieved as gifts from their Gods. Their crews are poorly trained but fanatical. Whether this is a good idea or not remains to be seen.

Download Simulator Files and Additional Data

GORE VX Legion
Image
The Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden's first engagements using little but the Alastor did not go exactly as planned, so their enlightened engineers and shipsmiths designed the Legion. These gunships swarm down upon an enemy ship, drawing enemy fire away from friendly vessels whilst using their superior maneuverability to avoid taking damage. The Legion employs a special chassis system and a fire control system that, when used correctly, allow it to ensure it is always pointing at it's intended target. When used incorrectly... let's just say the results aren't pretty. The Legion is primarily piloted by the newest and most zealous recruits - these squadrons tend to have very high casualty rates as a result.
Armament
4x Tiny Laser


GORE VX-M Legion
Image
In their infinite wisdom, the Grand High Council of The Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden declared that the Legion squadrons needed a little more long-range power, and thus the VX-M variant was designed. Swapping out the VX' quad tiny lasers for two Sparrow Light Missile Launchers, the VX-M sacrifices none of the VX' armour or speed to carry out it's mission. It also features the same chassis control system, though the fire control was deemed unnecessary as the missile launchers had appropriate targeting computers already. The VX-M is regarded as a stepping-stone between Legion and Alastor command, and is usually flown by the more experienced recruits, rather than fresh pilots.
Armament
2x Sparrow LM


GORE VX-T Legion
Image
When the battlefield is too risky to deploy Paimon-class vessels, or there are none available for a fast mission, the VX-T variant of the Legion is deployed. It employs two paired Breaker-type Torpedo Tubes like the Paimon, and it's high speed allows it to outflank enemy vessels. A barrage of torpedoes to the flank is one of the last things one wants to experience as the captain of a ship, after all.
Armament
2x Breaker EC Torpedo


GORE V4 Paimon
Image
Designed by order of the Grand High Council of The Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden, the Paimon-class Torpedo Boat sort-of fills the gap between the Legion series (specifically the VX-M) and the Alastor. The Paimon is often deployed alongside the Asmodeus during routine patrol missions, as the vessel's speeds and loadouts complement each other fairly well.
Armament
2x Breaker EC Torpedo


GORE V1 Alastor
Image
The Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden's first serious foray into space warfare, the Alastor is armed with an array of twin light laser turrets and a pair of horrendously powerful Equalizer Thermal-Explosive Charge Torpedo Launchers, which can, when used properly, inflict serious damage on an enemy vessel. The Alastor is best suited to long-range combat, as it's somewhat oddly placed gun batteries prevent it from bringing most of it's guns to bear on a single target.
Armament
2x Medium Laser
2x Twin Light Laser
2x Equalizer TEC Torpedo


GORE V2 Asmodeus
Image
The Grand High Council of The Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden declared that their fleets needed a "midline" ship to hold the ground between the VX Legion series and the V1 Alastor/V3 Abaddon ships. Thus, the V2 Asmodeus was created. A relatively fast attack ship, the Asmodeus takes over from the Legion in high-threat environments. The Asmodeus is armed with two Medium Laser cannons (one full-flex turret, one "chin" emplacement), two fixed Sparrow LMLs, and six Tiny Lasers, three on each side, allowing it to deal with enemy gunships quite efficiently.
Armament
2x Medium Laser
2x Sparrow LM
6x Tiny Laser


GORE VT Surgat
Image
Reserved for those who have somehow dishonoured their family in the Republic (that is to say, those who can - and will - fight for the Republic, but have otherwise been cast out), the Surgat-class ships are salvaged or stolen V6 Marauder-class vessels, likely previously employed either by the ASDF (as the D1 Kama) or Kebb Confederacy (as the SVD02 River) - but never bought or traded. The Surgat is named for a minor demon of Christianity, and little of known of him save for the fact he may have the ability to open any lock. Perhaps fittingly, Surgat crews take a keen interest in boarding action, though the erratic and underfunded nature of Surgat outfitting also means they end up performing electronic warfare and other miscellaneous duties (such as impromptu minesweeping) as well.
Armament
2x Heavy Laser
4x Small Laser


GORE V3 Abaddon
Image
The Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden decided it needed a powerful long-range combatant. Thus, the Abaddon was created. The Abaddon packs good all-round coverage and two devastatingly powerful Leveller Tactical-Nuclear Charge Torpedo Launchers, as well as two Sparrow Light Missile Launchers for shorter range coverage. Unfortunately, it's forward-heavy design makes it sluggish and it handles rather poorly, so it is best kept behind faster friendly ships where it need not worry about being flanked.
Armament
1x Twin Snub-Superheavy Laser
2x Leveller TNC Torpedo
5x Medium Laser


GORE V5 Moloch
Image
Space Triangles. Long have they held great power and significance to the people of the ASDF and Kebb Confederacy. Seeking to turn that imagery against their foes, the Grand High Council of the Gloriously Orange Republic of Eden commissioned and sanctified the Moloch. It is a lumbering, inelegant, but incredibly powerful warship that will not go down without a fight, necessitating the "needless sacrifice" of lives and warships to destroy it. It is not, however, a one-ship fleet, and works even better when well supported.
Armament
2x GORE Heavy Missile Array
4x Leveller TNC Torpedo
9x Medium Laser


GORE V5 Moloch X
Image
An unorthodox development in the history of Explosive Warhead Missiles, the Moloch X features two Saturation Missile Turrets atop it's chassis. Each launches four powerful missiles in rapid succession. Each is essentially a Breaker-type Explosive Charge Torpedo with significantly boosted range, albeit with extended reload times. The Moloch X sacrifices nothing to deploy these launchers - indeed, surveys suggest that the incorporation of turret-based systems was planned from the beginning, but scrapped from the production-model Moloch due to time restrictions. The Moloch X is more expensive (and thus lesser in number) than the "standard" Moloch, but is an even more dangerous foe.
Armament
2x Saturation Missile Rack
2x GORE Heavy Missile Array
4x Leveller TNC Torpedo
9x Medium Laser

• 1.0: Initial release of GORE ships. V1, V2, V3, VX, VX-M.
• 1.1: Adjusted torpedo range on the V1 and V3. Included some missing sprites.
• 1.2: VT Surgat with Kebb disguise not included at present. Press the comma key (,) to make the Surgat (ASDF) variant toggle between GORE and ASDF colours. Also doesn't include the shielded variant of the Abaddon.
• 1.2a: Now available! Includes Kebb-disguised Surgat (many thanks to HM for providing the blueprint so I could make the disguise more convincing) - same procedure as the ASDF-disguised Surgat to toggle "Turncoat" systems. Also adjusted the turrets on the Moloch X for a more visually appealing barrage.

Quick and dirty screenshot of the three Laser Wars factions so far. There might be a fourth coming soon!

I don't know how much you want the GORE to fit with HMs races, but it seems to me they could use some more doodads. The orange can get a bit monotonous (particularly on the abbadon or if you stare at it too long), so in terms of both looks and stylistic continuity, some doodads would probably be a good thing.

GORE ships have quite a few doodads here and there... catch is, they're all animated. It doesn't translate very well in screenshots.

Besides, I want to leave other decal styles options open for other people, assuming we get any other fleets. We've got lines/bands (which kind of takes squares) and we've got circles, which leaves what, triangles, pentagons and hexagons before shrunk stuff starts looking like circles?

If anything, the lack of major markings could be said to be a part of their style.

Yeah, I can see a few of them, I guess I'll have to wait for vids, gifs, or a dl link to properly judge.

And fair enough about the leaving other styles for other people, I didn't know what sort of project this was but that makes sense.
As for it being their style, again fair enough, and since they're not using similar tech or hulls to those of the other races, their ships needn't be or similar style. The problem I see is that in the other ships, the doodads act as another colour to break things up, but yours don't have this.
Anyway, it's not a big problem, and all of the ships are quite nice.

It's not really any kind of project. I just made some ships in the general style after a few jokes about orange/blue lasers and HM was fine with it, so I posted them here. Whether or not anyone else makes Laser Wars ships and factions is up to them really. Though obviously they'd still have to fit with the general style(s) and whatnot. Plus it's ultimately down to HM in the end I guess. Or whatever. I dunno.
