it's been a year.

anywho, I used a set of battlestar turrets that most closely had the starwars feel to them, it's cheating yes, but I just plain got fed up with my inability to draw a nose view for the previous turret.

I have to say again, if this is a consular ship, where is the ambassador? :)

this particular ship doesnt have one.

she's sporting some decidedly non-spec hardware.

Though I am amused at the reference to the ship from the movie, and that this one would have fared any better in those circumstances.

Ships Captain, "There getting ready to fire on us, power up the ,,,"


Charred Captain Corpse, "Never min..." Thud!

On the other hand, I suppose if they had had those guns in the nose powered up and waiting, the scene might have played out differently...

Orders are received form the bridge to blast the consular ship. The docking bay attendants look out the window at the two heavy guns pointed more or less right at them...

Docking Bay Attendant, "Do we have to Sir? I am more inclined to respect there diplomatic credentials at the moment." A long string of profanity issues forth from the com panel at this point...

I like it, its a neat and tight package, with some good forward firepower for lighter craft. I am wondering of the wing guns are of any real use against other targets though, they seem a bit masked by the engine pods. Is there any way to raise them up a bit to clear the pods?

those guns are intended to cover the dorsal and ventral arcs primarily, and can and are often used to cover the aft quarter.

Well, that and I suppose a ship this light is responsive enough to tilt a bit to bring them to bear really.

and her best defense is her speed and responsive handling.
