DreadCON ::: The Battle Warhorse by TorinZece DreadCON ::: The Battle Warhorse by TorinZece
DreadCON ::: Heavy Assault Capital

CLICK to enlarge, click again to enlarge again. Depending on monitor size resolution.

::: Detailing at this point. :::


* Top / Side / From view
* Comparision to the standard BattleCON
* Detailed out the Combat Industry Weapons POD. (A external yet connected weapon platform and multifunction.)

These craft have one main function: Front Lines Combat in events of war or incursion.

They have more firepower then many can imagine.

They are called Swords by the Altronians often enough.
Their main Deck gun uses something called a Blade Lazer, which really is more complext then most will realize. Combined fire at once form a plane of energy from the craft of concentrated energy that have been tested against a BlackHole at one point, and forced the core to erupt destroying the singularity utterly.

This test was done outside the galactic plane. As the radiation and energy would have been fatal to many nearby worlds. (Gamma Ray Burst was clearly seen)

Humans advanced enough to notice it litterally said the ship looked like a sword when it fired its weapon.

There are many, many other experimental or never discussed weapons that bristle the surface of the craft, who's effect can only be guessed at.

It is believed this craft's existence is the only reason the GORAC's have not invaded the gallaxy and the ANGI have not done a full on assault.

Their locations are litterally state secrets and often believed to 'sink' into a pocket universe just bellow the skin of normal space out of sight of others.

Others just say this is propoganda of the Altronians superiority. To which the Altronians will often smile and not dispute this, after all it helps keep then out of prying eyes.

This will be updated with more images shortly.

Should look at the Omni Battle Planet in my gallery.

Btw, what are the small rings on the side of the ship and what is a Ring Gate Weapon? how does it work? and what sort of energy requirements would it need?
looks great!

The ship controls and contort subattomic energy flow from subspace, emerging in the ring.
I hope to do a illustration how the weapon works. For now imagin its a higher dimension gun, where the round nozel of the gun emerges into our space.
The energy released is dependant upon desired effect.

The larger the ring, the greater the instantaneous range, due to the greater 'lensing effect'. There is no dodging once fired, just hope the gunner is not as good.

These rings also serve as thrusters for manuevering the craft. After all engines, like guns, use and emit energy. Although it more or less uses ambiant energy around in normal space and manipulates it to 'swim' in normal space.

Often their equipment has dual purposes. (In the story I and still pondering doing, the first time a human complains about the lie Altronians are peaceful by pointing out all the guns on their ships. The Altronian has to pause and think, "Oh yeah! I been using the targeting so long for astronomy I forgot it can shoot!" Which states miles about their targeting technology at the same time about how rare it is for them to be challenged.)

Yeah Gate guns are one I really wanting to illustrate more.

This is the actual size compared with the Death Star? This is one BIG ASS SHIP!

Love the detail, Torin!

lol, yup.
I was going to do Mark II, which is around 900 miles diam.
But that was taking up space.

It is enough to see it as is.

If you take the BattleCON image in my gallery, you can see it compared to things like Galactica, Enterprise NCC-1701, Nimitz class carrier, Babylon 5 station, and various Nuclear bomb yields...... All of which is small.

TorinZece Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2011  Professional General Artist
Yeah I plan on doing a 3/4 view this weekend.
Might do forward and aft view.

(Also I did not trust the 900 mile size, but a lot of references for it exist)

Realistic and possible future starships intrige me and you are doing a splendid job sir ;)
TorinZece Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2011  Professional General Artist
thanks, that is my goal!
TorinZece Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011  Professional General Artist
Thats what I am working on.
Gunnut51 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
I'd like to see the other planes of view for this (front, rear, broadside, etc)
TorinZece Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011  Professional General Artist
