Good view of turrets Arc.These are like the next Gen/design evolution of a 'Harrington-honor-verse' ships?

So where's the bridge?

Nice clean lines, sloped armor, narrow frontal and side profile. A practical and elegant design.

I read in some of your other comments that your fleets tend to converge at an angle to one another so I am assuming (due to the top down view in the corner) that it can fire most of it's tureets forward on the attack run.

One question do your ships make use of centerline, or spinal mounts to give ships a heavy punch directly forward? the designs I've seen seem to be prefect for a large battery of centerline guns to deliver a killing shot forward.

There's no real indication to give you a sense of scale other than the large turrets, but I am guessing this is on the relatively small size in contrast to some of your larger vessels. It definitely has an interesting look.

What I like most about the design is that it is such a departure from the Alliance's design ethos. When looking at this vessel, I get the impression that it was developed by a culture that is separate from the Alliance with an entirely divergent design philosophy. Considering how you designed both nations' ships, that is quite an accomplishment.

The ship is about as big as an Alliance Arcane-Class at 1.3km long.

And thanks for the compliment mate. I really wanted the Kingdom's ships to be distinct. Something someone could look at and go "man...those things are meant to get into gun range." (which they are)

Hope you like this and the King Robert-Class as they progress.

Amazing work as usual!
What's the silhouette in the lower corner of? Size comparison or another view of the vessel?
