Turian Super Dreadnought Diatryma class

Low Poly Turian Hierarchy Super Dreadnought model (Diatryma class) for the Mass Effect Universe. For use in Program 3d Studio Max 2010 and newer versions.
Textures included in the RAR download. I cannot guarantee if the textures work 100 percent fine. Maybe you have to retextures some parts.

You are free to use this model as long you give credits to me, and of course credit the creators of Mass Effect, Bioware and Electronic Arts like this:

Class Info:

The Diatryma class is a unique starship and the turian pendant to the Asari Flagship Destiny Ascension or the Human Sagan class. Basically a prestige object.

The first plans of this ship was made during the Geth Conflict in 2183, showing shortcomings during the Battle of the Citadel. But the class construction delay due to the construction of the newer Vulture class Dreadnoughts (to surpass the Alliance Kilimanjaro Dreadnought) in 2184 which should compensate the losses at the Citadel battle.
Building of the basic spaceframe of the Diatryma started in 2185 but with the beginning of the galaxy wide Reaper Attacks the turians abandon the prestige object to mass construct smaller ships which are faster to build for the war. Like a miracle, the construction facility left unnoticed by the Reaper forces and the spaceframe survived the war.
In 2190, after a short time of rebuilding economics, the Turians dig out the old super dreadnought project and decided to implement the new gained war tech into their new flagship. Like the Human pendent, the Sagan class, the Diatryma used Reaper hybrid technologies. Most systems like propulsion, weapons, Mass Effect field Generators and sensors are reconstructed Reaper technologies. Her main gun was once a dual mass accelerator, but with the construction of the Thanix Cannons the engineers decided to replace them with a giant heavy Thanix Gun, strong enough to rip apart every known starship with one shot, similar to the Reaper beams.
The Diatryma had her maiden Voyage in 2191 and is now considered the most powerful ship of the citadel armed forces.

Specifications:
Length: 1612 meters
Crew: 4000 + ground troops and Mechs

This is a beautiful display of turian doctrine.

Strict, centralized authority and strength. I feel like such a super-dreadnought fits the sort of thinking the turians displayed throughout the games. Nothing about this ship speaks to a special versatility, but pure firepower instead, just like one might expect from turian doctrine.

Have you guys ever thought about how the turians conduct land warfare? Because although there’s been plenty of lore regarding the turians naval power there is little info on their ground forces.
