Well, after about a week of vacation in long island NY, I have returned to building. After succesfully getting entirely frustrated with fixing my Previous XSOR and TITAN class ships, I have decided to move on, and possibly redo them all entirely. But in the meantime, I got board and introduced a new faction and made a few tiny ships.
Following the War with the Ts'ari, Humanity lacked a common enemy. Several outer colonies were suffering from shortages of supplies and in an attempt to gain public support began boycotting the UNGW. During this time, Several mercinary groups Saw an opportunity to make massive profit, and thus offered these colonies protection and supply chains. thus. The United Systems Rebel Front, or U.S.R.F was born. Since the group's military is in fact made up of multiple Militias Vieing for control, many of their ships have varying levels of technology. from directed energy to chemical propelled Kinetics, this group has every type weapon system know to human kind, as well as some Joint alien-human designs. the above "Katana" Main frigate is an excellent example. Utilizing a main gun which uses chemical burn traditional Ferro-tungsten rounds fired from an 8 shot Vulcan cannon. Though each shell is weaker that a coil guns individualy, the volume of fire allows the shells to do compounding damage to armor plating and superstructures. the secondary weapons are directed energy weapons similar to those on an Olympus class carrier.
Also this, the Democles Class corvette. The mainline scout ship for the UNGW, this speedy ship uses light javelin missiles and a traditional chemical burn main gun to ward off corvette or smaller vessels.
