-Here's a little bit of back story to our ship -
Following the successful release of the Outer Ring Excavations [ORE] resource extraction vessel, Primae. ORE has further developed a new innovative and supporting sub-class of the Primae vessel to aid in the transportation and excavation of highly volatile resources that may harm the much larger and much more expensive primary vessel. This new additional space ship is aptly named the Auxilirae.
The Auxilirae (116m) is a lightly armed transport vessel dependent upon the Primae (854m) to ferry dangerous resources under the protection of it's larger escort. Carrying resources within eighteen different containers the Auxilirae has the ability to discharge the volatile contents at a moments notice to hinder any chance of explosive damage, be it from opposing vessels, hazardous environments or chemical imbalance. As well as resource transportation the Auxilirae is equipped with a controlled magnetic grapple to seize nearby mineral-rich asteroids for the Primae to extract and process.
Although the Auxilirae is for purely industrial use it is noted that on more than one occasion explosive chemical resources were purposefully expelled onto a rival vessel with disastrously effectual results.

This is my Battleship submission to the Starship competition.
This is now the FINAL version.
Well this looks like a Caldari Battleship. You can fit a full compliment of either guns and missiles launchers.. and has many bonuses like 100% increase to torp & cruise missile damage & 80% increase to shield hardeners etc.
I was worried that the Caldari had used all the bird of prey names but lucky there was a couple left. Lammergeier - a huge bird , a vulture, and feeds mostly on dead animals and apparently it drops fresh carcass bones on rocky ground from on high to feed on the marrow
The name Lammergeier literally means 'Lamb Catcher'.
Anyway, I love the ship I've made (wish I could upload the sketchup file for the competition too, not because of detail but because its always better to see the whole thing than just shots I hope to see it in game.
For the CCP contest version (which is updated a little bit to show some additional details and the added side drone bays though the ship is in a different light and setting): [link]
This advanced destroyer class space ship has many weapon system built into it. Main super cannon is tucked into the bottom front. Side segmented panels hide the super charged missiles bays. It also has 2 additional turbo booster engines attached to each side of the body to provide extra speed and backup engine. There are no visible pilot window. But optics and special lenses are scattered around the ship that provide navigation and viewing assistance. The whole ship has many articulation parts and joints to provide extra flexibility during warp speed space travel or battle situation.
My second entry for the Eve design-a-ship contest.
Idk how it would be used in-game, but this ship is Mondian in design, and as such is meant to scare the pants off of any other vessels it comes up against. It's heavily shielded and armored, and carries six guided beam projectors as well as the capability to phase its shields into beam and repulsive weapons. It uses a great deal of scavenged, salvaged and stolen Earthain technology, and as such it's reactors are often more powerful than needed for normal flight. Excess energy as heat is dumped into a series of massive heat sinks to be dissipated into space, but more often than not it's simply diverted into the engines for a dramatic increase in overall acceleration and speed. At the risk of burning out the main drive coils, of course.
