lol, OK maybe not sexy, but the curvatures of the battlestar are graceful and pleasing to the eye in the same way a coca cola bottle is pleasing to look at,. People just like the way it looks, it's similar to why the galactica shape looks so nice (plus all those turrets on it and the fact that it's a warship makes it awesomely cool.)

yeah, and having an armed to the teeth battlestar in your battlegroup certainly says something when you come to port, too.......

packing 24 main guns of a NAC rating of 5, and 8 main guns of an NAC 6 rating


What's a NAC rating? Does it have to do with the rate of fire?

NAC or Naval Auto Cannon: A type of projectile weapon from the Battletech universe and the Battlespace warship combat game. The rating is the amount of capital ship scale damage it does, just like the AC/5, 10, & 20 in Battletech. Warship scale damage is 10x Battletech damage, so a NAC/10 does 10 damage to a warship, 100 to a smaller unit. The largest guns in the game are NAC/40's. One problem with the whole Battletech universe is that the more powerful the gun is, the shorter the range. Quite illogical, somewhat like having the guns on a Fletcher class Destroyer have a longer range than the main guns on the Yamato.

Naval Ammunition Caliber or Naval Assault Cannon depending, and the # represents a broad classification, not a statistic, so a NAC 5 is a class five weapon, and for bore size it may or may not have a size between 30" and 36". These numbers are for exemplification only, as the main guns on the Galactica are something like 20 FEET in bore. Basically its a way to label a weapon system and have everyone understand that it is a big gun, but not a big big gun, as opposed to say a medium gun, or even a big, big , big (also labeled massive) gun. :D

will do, but not for a few more months, this will be quite the demanding uparmor, and I'd prefer to wait to work her on the new hardware I'm getting in july.

Hey anyone going to draw up the Talos, because she's a pretty good looking ship and I really think someone should think of drawing her.

oh yes very nice indeed! I like the top profile of the Alligator-head especially how long and sloped it is, pod struts seem a bit thin but they do look good, like the bomber launch tubes wish we knew what the heck a bomber is (technically the Raptor is the Bomber) but I like to believe there is something a bit more sinister we never got to see on screen..

adequate missile armament :damnfunny actually probably a bit heavy but heavy is better than light anytime..er in ships and tanks

love those caprican colors

looks like a misslile with its pods retracted nice!

need size comparison chart!

whadda ya hear? :thumbsup

I second the call for someone to draw the Talos.

the CGI images should still be floating somewhere in my photobucket account.

anyone who wants to access them, please, feel free.
