Two Razor class Destroyer show a Batarian pirate group what it means to mess with the Alliance.

The Razor class is built since 2183 shortly before the Battle at the Citadel.  Production cost is nearly half from a cruiser.  With a little more than 500 meter lenght, the ship is more agile than a cruiser with a weapon and engine output of 70 percent of a York class.  It has 4 small hangar bays with 4 Kodiak Shuttlecrafts and 2 Hammerhead  ground vehicles.
 
Main armament are the two Mass Drivers in the front section of the ship. The 250-meter mass accelerators are capable of accelerating two four-kilogram slug to a velocity of 3050 km/s every ten seconds. Also in the front section is a rocket launcher.
The Disruptor-Rockets normally move slowly, but can cause massive damage to bigger/slower targets like dreadnoughts or stations. Razors have extensive GARDIAN Laser systems to provide anti-fighter screening for capital ships, and carry squads of marines for security and groundside duty.

Nice and nobody would miss the slave-taking egotistical Batarians anyway. The four eyed race has made many enemies among the other races over the centuries.

So whats the naming convention with destroyers?

Destroyers are named after Earth Soldiers and military leaders. Like Hannibal, Jeanne D'arc, Eisenhower, Churchill or Saladin.
The Razor here is named after Annabelle Razor who led the Anhur Rebellion against the Batarians in the Skyllian Blitz.

Ok, but what's creating the light/fire then? Is it just for dramatization? :)

Yep, just a visual effect like these non scientific visible Laser or Phaser.

Not really, get an object going fast enough and the thing could either red-shift or blue-shift depending on the velocity it's going. Giving the object color, something like that could also form from any unfortunate particles that are behind the shell getting ripped apart.

A simple, yet very deadly warship to face.

I really wish Bioware used more diversity with their ship concepts. The class of ship you ever see are cruisers, also the only dreadnought you ever see is the Destiny Ascension. The Mass Effect wiki tells more about the other types but no images of them. You are one of the few artist I know to the the other ship types.

We also see sometimes the Alliance Dreadnought, and in the Omega DLC there is a Cerberus Dreadnought too. But you are right. Its a shame that there are no more ship classes. I think Bioware/EA doesnt have enough time to make them ready. In the game file there are many unused models without textures. Turian Fighters, Salarian Cruisers, Earth Cruisers and more.
