First built in 2195 and commissioned in 2196 the Veracruz-class cruiser is the first Alliance warship to heavily incorporate Reaper technology and designs in its construction. Almost all of its systems from power generation to propulsion, defense systems, and sensors take design cues from studies on Reaper hulls putting it ahead of the rest of the cruiser fleet in capabilities. Several of these innovations also helped reduce the minimum crew requirements and increase the internal hold capacity compared to other cruisers. As such this ship carries two fighter squadrons, instead of the usual one squadron, and 60 marines with enough craft necessary to transport them to their missions.

Currently the Navy has produced only this prototype as it continues to study the design for future iterations of this ship and any others that also incorporate Reaper designs. Pictured here is the SSV Veracruz in late 2195 carrying out shakedown trials. It's escort, the cruiser SSV Boston, is flying alongside to both observe the ship's performance as well as partake in test maneuvers against the Veracruz. Both vessels would be forced into action as a security situation arises near the batarian homeworld of Khar'shan.

I love the design of Alliance warships but it always bothered me how lightly armed they look. No visible turrets for example and I can't see the purpose for the wings. When looked from the front or pack they look too thin and fragile. From above they look sleek though.

My favourite one ! I love the profile, looks like a new generation of cruisers with a little side of Dreadnought.

Do you know the heavy cruiser's length when compared with its cruiser counterpart in your artwork?

A classic case of exposure inspired art. There is no drag in empty space. So even a cube could do the job.

I really do like the mass effect style! I am impressed at how you can make these scenes look so dynamic yet legible, I am having trouble there.

A beautiful ship.My only problem with this design, it doesn't have secondary weapons.Meaning big railgun turrets or something similar.The ship isn't designed to fight medium and short distances.

Oh it has all weapons hidden under the hull - commissioner wanted it to be rather sleek on the outside.

Well I don't have any plans for other ships, but there is one more commission on the way for the ME universe, so be sure to watch out for that one. It will most likely be a month or so before it's done though.
