Aurora - Light Cruiser (Wallpaper) by Vattalus Aurora - Light Cruiser (Wallpaper) by Vattalus
Light Cruiser, That carries a sqadron of 62 fighters, 24 bombers, several RADs (Robotic Attack Drone), Reconnaissance Probes, and 1 Dragon class Dropship.
Length: 510m
Crew: ~1800 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.

Modelled in Solidworks, textured and rendered in C4D with minor editing in PS. Part of a project to create a fleet of spaceships, and feature them in an animation.

Cool ship design, I especially like the lens flare of the engine glow.
