Well with the Traquia finally done it's time to kick out some decent artwork. Some of you might've noticed that I updated some of the older images with the final model. Those who don't - well now you know!

So here we are, along with the Traquia and a small flotilla gathering on the dark side of some planet. I'll think of a proper story at some point :)

----------------------

The designs, models and textures for the Inferno II, Seraphim, Phoenix Cruiser and Traquia were made by and are property Jens Schulze Osthoff (=me)
The planet was captured with Google Earth.

About the Traquia:

The Empire of the Seven Sun's massive flagship carries the designation 'Supreme Battleship' and that with good reason. Almost three times the size of the already legendary Warrior-class Battle Cruiser the Traquia exceeds its predecessor in practically any possible way.

Armament-wise the Traquia has upped the bar for modern weapons technology. While the number of 'normal' weapon emplacements by itself may appear close to infinite the Traquia also introduces the ESS' newly developed Omega array technology along with a full six fusion cannons.

Despite all its firepower the Traquia mainly acts as a command ship and safe harbour. Large hangar bays and docking nexuses offer space for countless vessels even up to frigate-sized capital ships, while approaching enemies are kept well at safe distance by the Traquia’s various long range weapons.

Construction of the Traquia started in 2536 UPT and was completed in late 2539. The Traquia finally entered service as the ESS’ new flagship in early 2540, after its predecessor, SBCR Warrior had been lethally damaged during the Battle of Adminis and had to be abandoned. Since then the ‘Sword of the Stars’, as some call it, is the ultimate symbol of the Empire’s quick ascension and flourish as well as its unbendable will and resolve to strike back at any aggressor.

this is simply beautiful work. stunning, marvelous, and extremely appealing, not to mention intimidating and daunting, this ship is wonderful, as if it says, "Yes i am pretty, but if you mess with me, I will destroy you".

hopefully this wont be the only view we see of her, would love a top view
