Am I the only one who suspects that the smaller turrets and the point defense turrets are the same thing? I noticed on the wiki it distinguishes between the two, but if you look at the scale of the ship, the smaller turrets seem to be around the same size as the point defense turrets on Galactica. 

I guess I just wish there was more canon information given about the particulars of the Colonial Fleet! (Although, the lack of knowledge does allow for us to be creative with our imaginations, I suppose.). I would be curious if the smaller turrets on the Valyrie-type battlestars fire missiles exclusively, or if they use explosive or sabot rounds against other capital ships. Since the Mercury-class and Galactica type battlestars pretty only use ballistic projectiles, it would be interesting to see a Colonial ship that using missiles like the Cylons do. 

EDIT: Wait, now I'm noticing that some of the main batteries have different size TURRETS, but similar sized guns. Maybe that's what I was confused about.

Hey ya'll. This is my model, made for ST Bridge Commander and an unreleased version for ST Legacy.

You're welcome. Full credit to the modeler as I only rendered and composited it :)

Hello:
Still, it is awesome render. What did you use to make it? if I can ask? :) .

Sorry, the model is not mine. I found it online and rendered the image in 3DS MAX but if you simply Google Battlestar Valkyrie 3d model, you should be able to find it :salute:

Hello:
And thanks for the answer! :D .

I may try to find it to take a look at it, but I do have my own Valkyrie model. I may make renders for it when I have free days (so... eventually >_< ).

Keep it up!

I always liked the Valkyrie, a pocked carrier/cruiser.
