A finished Pocketdreadnought designed to be featured for a Chronicles of Man faction called the Free Republic of Veridia.
Larger then a battleship yet smaller then a regular dreadnought the Bushido Class pocketdreadnought is 3.5km long and retains the speed of a battleship combined with the firepower of a dreadnought. As a downside its armour and protective shielding reflect this and are only slightly better then a battleship.
This will be the first post but hopefully not last one.
The second ship in the Coalition's Vault-Series of warship, the Accipiter-Class battleship is a fearsome sight to behold.
A battleship in the truest sense, and dwarfing their Armored Cruiser escorts, the Accipiter-Class is the mainstay of the Coalition's Navy at the start of the war. Significantly larger than the preceding Liberty-Class Battleship, the Accipiter will give even the Alliance's newest EVOVE series battlecruiser - the Legend-Class (to be designed) - a run for its money. Armed with a standard missile broadside that exceeds the Archangel-Class Dreadnought (albeit with the Coalition's Smaller Type 32 Standard Missile), the Accipiter's combat tactic centers around raw, brute saturation of enemy defenses in the face of superior EW and ECW. In addition - strong computer integration links heavily with its escorts, allowing for seamless coordination when using the smaller, much faster Armored Cruisers to sucker larger units into the Accipiter's large engagement envelope.
The Alliance Data file on the Accipiter ends with this warning to all captains. "Accipiter-Class Battleships mark the first vessel in the Coalition Navy that achieves - to a degree - parity with the equivalent Alliance Vessel. Captain's are advised to use extreme caution when engaging these warships and not count on powered missile envelope superiority or defensive capabilities."
As stated in an poll I will do some new design for the Veridian Republic. Mainly new 'modern' models. These designs will be heavilly influenced by the new heading I am taking with the Veridian republic. A more aggressive stand basically with a 'democratic' system only in word since the military will be in control.
Finished it and decided to call it a Same Class destroyer (Same meaning Shark in Japanese). It is mainly a missile orientated ship design with minimal guns but still has several lasers/beam weapons for close in situations)/
Updated the image with a new layout, also removed the aux engine module on the lower part of the ship, replaced it with a fire control and sensor module. Tweaked the main hull too to make it smoother and studier looking.
She's finally done, the CoM Version of the Evangelos. Now a 2.1km long Battlecruiser, she's the latest and fastest ship in the Republic Navy. Specs and details to come later.

"...It was named for the Sunderhorse of the Star Kingdom of Sunderland and rightly so. What other starship matches the raw power of that elephant sized beast and marries it with a speed that only serves to complete the parallel. With the Admiral-Class, the Alliance completes the link that turns its Navy into the most advanced and capable force in the entire galaxy. The only way we will ever defeat them is by sheer force of numbers. ”

The Anointed-class was one of the first ships built for the Threshold of Hadrian Navy, and so still incorporates many of the original ideas considered to be practical on paper, but not in practice. However, once fortunate offshoot of this became extremely useful. A modified honeycomb design was employed, using more triangles and thicker armor where possible, as well as more heavy-base struts than commonly found, resulting in a ship that is considered to be an "Ol' Reliable" concept. While as of late found to be outclassed by newer battlecruisers, particularly that of the Alliance, the Anointed-class's reputation is that of an old dog that is still a formidable force, capable of pulling off miracles on the battlefield, taking far more force and a heavier beating than it would be thought possible. Part of this is due to it's dual-bridges. Originally conceived to be a massive flagship for fleets of Ships-of-the-Lance, a large, somewhat showy - and well defended by point-defense, Flag Bridge was incorporated. It's removal from later ships of the class was saved by several cases of enemy ships actually blowing out the main internal bridge, the ship temporarily going "dead," only to minutes later surprising the once-thought victorious enemy with a close-range display of force as a surviving or entirely new impromptu command crew taking control.
As such, new tactics allow the Anointed-class to easily work together in small fireteams with other ships of the same, or even different class, which aided greatly in the Verge-Incursions, with teams of battlecruisers striking precisely during large ship-of-the-line battles, using their smaller size to their advantage, as they were not the initial targets of choice. In coordination with their heavy compliment of dropships and orbital troopers, this made them prime for launching boarding actions.
To counter boarding actions from taking control via the aft bay, large heavy bulkheads can easily be put into place to isolate vital areas.
