A (mostly) complete battle carrier I built in Minecraft. In it's current state, it possess the following features:
-heavy all around armor protection
-highly compartmentalized interior with lockable blast doors to slow down boarding parties and minimize collateral damage sustained from shots that pierce it's armor
-two wings of (flyable and fully functional) bombers, a total of 8 such craft launched from rear launch bays on either side of the ship
-two side mounted torpedo tubes firing miniaturized but highly destructive self propelled torpedoes
-prow mounted heavy cannon, extremely long ranged and firing 4 projectiles with each shot
-5 single projectile cannons, 3 standard and 2 compact variants
-36 standard fire charge guns, arranged to fire in batteries of 2-4 (16 forward, 10 on each broadside)
I am still working on adding broadside mounted cannon turrets, and boosting it's ability to repel borders by adding guardian laser turrets on the ship's exterior deck.
Every time I tell myself that I'm just going to a small, simple and quick design using tried and true methods, I end up building some grand warship that rivals or dwarfs anything else before it in size, and utilizes numerous new innovations. This one retains the advanced armor layout, superfiring weapon turrets and prow cannon of my older battlecruiser design, but upgrades the frontal cannon and earns the distinction of being the first warship I have ever constructed to be armed with a 4 projectile cannon. While the subdivision is improved over my previous design with thicker bulkheads and multi-layer sealable blast doors, this ship's greatest innovations are in what it launches rather than what is a part of the ship itself. This is my first ever ship to be equipped to carry and launch functional self propelled torpedoes and bomber aircraft.
