Impressive as usual Seraph. My only complaint here is that the armor with thrusters on the Cu Chulainn looks a little odd. It looks sorta like the ship is about to fire its armor plates at an enemy. Of course, this would be pretty awesome if you could actually do that.

Also, just wondering, what exactly are those aegised parts sticking out the side of the Gilgamesh supposed to represent?

The reason for the thrusters on the Armoured Cu Chulainn is because, when each one is destroyed, the ship gets faster, until it loses all the armoured plates, and it becomes as fast as the standard, unarmoured Cu Chulainn. I know it looks kinda awkward, but I couldn't really think of a better way to do it, at the time. If only thrusters could be made invisible.

Large reactors for the ship's main gun.

Shortly after the X17 Gilgamesh-class Titan and X13 Cú Chulainn-class Cruiser entered service, the X09 Caladbolg-class Destroyer was released also. Specialising in hit-and-run attacks and relying primarily on its speed to survive, as its armour is quite weak, and buckles easily beneath the heavy weapons fire of large ships. Best deployed in groups of two or three to harass larger vessels.

Credit goes to Anty for the engines. Hope you don't mind me using them, dude. :D You did post 'em in here.

Download the Caladbolg.

That looks freaking awesome.
You know it takes my Inquisitor to beat that Destroyer... :lol: a Dreadnought to take down a Destroyer...and it wasn't moving, otherwise it would be game over for the Inquisitor. :lol:

What sick bastard uses 2000 DAMAGE PULSARS ON A FUCKING DESTROYER?????

Needless to say, now that I've actually played with one of them, I find them absolutely overbalanced.

More comment will follow, as I've just noticed the package in the hall that says "Laptop", and holds my own computer in it.

None other than our dear Seraph. :lol:

But seriously, so what if a destroyer has 2000 dmg pulsars? Any problems with that? I don't think so - SWS's ships are supposed to be overbalanced, that's why they're so fun to look at and fun to play with. Nice one, SWS. Haven't really seen any relatively smaller ships from you so far.

Some of the thrusters and the pulsars are mirrored incorrectly. Otherwise, it's very cool indeed. 8)

I seriously have no idea what you're talking about, ArcaneDude. :P My Destroyer (Caladbolg) doesn't have any Pulsars on it at all, let alone 2000 damage ones. It's the Cruiser (Cu Chulainn) that has those.

Additionally, "overbalanced" is not a word. "Unbalanced" is, certainly, although that doesn't apply to my ships, as they are balanced. Against each other. "Overpowered" is another one that you may have been looking for, and it definitely applies. All these ships so far have thousands of health, dish out thousands of damage, and in the case of the Gilgamesh, are composed of one and a half thousand sections. They're obscenely overpowered. But I have always, always made my ships that way, anyway.

Before this fleet is completely finished, I'll make a Battleship (something between the size of the Memento Mori and the Cu Chulainn), and probably a Frigate, Corvette, Gunboat and Fighter. Maybe a handful of those last few, as they're small and require less time to make.

EDIT: Oh, and maybe a Carrier.

Wootzorz! I have my own computer back! Now I really start to appreciate size.

On the ships, yes, overpowered was the word I was looking for. Sorry, I was a bit excited about aforementioned fact.

So you're going to make a complete fleet? Somehow the idea of SWS building a carrier frightens me.

Okay guys, time for a quick vote, which should I make next, the Battleship, the Carrier, or one of the smaller ships?

No way. Seraph, you can actually make a *gasp* smaller ship?!

I'd love to see that.

Im late, but i just saw these - bloody impressive. Spent a few solid minutes looking at the details.

Makes me wonder, with someone like Seraph here, whats the point of even trying to build aesthetically pleasing ships? You know you can't beat him :)
