Here is my second foray in trying out a fleet. This is still WIP as I will be adding more ships to this.
1) The Battleship Barracuda.
Embracing the traits of the great predator of the reefs, the barracuda, this battleship combines close ranged firepower and the ability to pounce in and out of attacks makes this battleship a force to be reckoned with. The Barracuda spearheads the Aquilonian attack fleet and will usually be the first ship to charge in to the enemy lines.
2) The Coelacanth Cruiser.
The Coelacanth is slow and lumbering but gives support with its long range weapons. The only ship in the fleet equipped with railguns, this ship tends to hang back and give long range support with its railgun and missile launchers. However, it does have the capability for medium attacks.
3) The Scorpaenidae Battleship.
Unlike the Barracuda, the Scorpaenidae is a frontal assault ship and will help to draw fire from the other ships in the fleet. It is also the only ship to be further armed with two defensive satellites, making its defences more robust. The Scorpaenidae is the core of the Aquilonian fleet and can fill any role needed.
4) The Coenobita Clypeatus Support Frigate.
Hanging out in the edge of the battle, the Coenobita Clypeatus Support Frigate is only armed with 1 weapon but is equipped with various tactical modules. It was built to fill in the role of a general support frigate. With its nanomatrices, it can repair damaged ships, slow down projectiles with its impeder platforms, that are churned from its impeder fabricator, making it easier on the defences of the fleet. In addition it is armed with lancets to take out enemy weaponry. Finally, the Frosch gun gives opening to the attacking Aquilonian ships to destroy enemy ships with ease.
5) The Manta Carrier.
This giant carrier shadows the fleet and attacks from afar with sheer numbers of drones, ripping the enemy fleet apart. At the same time, it is also equipped with a platform fabricator to drop down offensive or defensive platforms. It is one of the bigger ships of the fleet and its size gives out a threatening presence in the battlefield.
6) Acanthuridae Patrol Corvette.
Seeing that the fleet was lacking any patrol type of ships, the Aquilonians went to work. The ship had to be fast, manoeuvrable and able to outrun any heavy ships. Hence, the Acanthuridae Patrol Corvette was born. It had the fastest engines in the fleet and was able to flank any enemy ships with ease. However, it lacked armour and it needed its speed to overcome any hard hitters.

7) Carcharadon Dreadnought.
The Aquilonians needed ships that could command the battle fleet effectively. It had to be able to hold out on its own and at the same time be able to project a sense of power and pride. There was a lot of experiments with various designs but in the end, they have it! Taking the inspiration from one of the most primitive predators of the sea, the Carcharadon Dreadnought was born! The Carcharadon Dreadnought was massive and its presence often caused terror in the battlefield. The mere sight of the dreadnought awakened old primal fears amongst the enemy and most would run instead of fight. As of this time, only 3 Carcharadon Dreadnoughts were built. Each concentrated on a certain type of weaponry. They are Zeus (beam heavy), Hades (projectile heavy) and Poseidon (a mix) Aquilonian Carcharadon Dreadnought Class ships. All shall tremble and fear.
8) Sphyrnidae Cruiser
The Hammerhead Cruiser is a short range attack ship that is more of an in your face design. The broad head of the ship is a great place to mount weaponry and it was done just that. Any frontal attacks are cleverly defended with well mounted deflectors. Literally, the head of the ship is the strength of this vessel, offering offensive and defensive options.
9) Isurus Frigate
Utilizing The Pouncer
(modified dieterling) to great effect, this mako shark based ship appears to whizz in and out of attacks quickly, making it a difficult target for large ships. However, the frigate was designed to take out fast ships, which is evident by its beam based weapon complement. Able to catch up with most fast ships, the Isurus frigate will make a short work of any interceptor type of vessel.
10) Great Whale Capital Ship
This is the heart of the fleet, the greatest ship ever produced by the Aquilonians, it carries the might and honour of the Aquilonian battle group. No mere words can describe it. Once you see it in battle, it is a sight that you will never forget.
This is a complete pack of all the ships in the Aquilonian Fleet. I hope you enjoy using these ships as much as I have enjoyed making them. Grab them >HERE
