Valkyrie Heavy Cruiser by Vattalus Valkyrie Heavy Cruiser by Vattalus
Heavy Cruiser
Carries a sqadron of 116 fighters, 48 bombers, dozens of RADs (Robotic Attack Drone), Reconnaissance Probes, and 2 Dragon class Dropships.
Length: 760m
Crew: ~3000 officers + pilots

Cruisers are versatile warships, larger than Destroyers but smaller than Battleships or Carriers.
They can fulfill a number of roles: patrol, escort... but they shine as a rapid response unit.
Armed with huge anti-capital projectile cannons you would expect to see mounted on much larger capital ships,
together with their impressive propulsion system, taking up about a quarter of the ship, and onboard fighter/bomber support
they are very capable and efficient if used correctly.


Modeled in Solidworks, textured and rendered in C4D. Part of a project to create a fleet of spaceships, and feature them in an animation.

That looks very cool.
You ever wonder how a mixed, fighting/carrier ship approach would work?  I mean recovering attack craft cannot be easy while attempting to perform energetic combat manoeuvres.  Guess you'd need a screen of escorts to keep the other sides capitol ships at bay, allowing it to act as a stable weapons/landing platform.
Sorry, it's a cool design, and I tend to geek out a bit when presented with coolness, lol.
