Legendary-Class Superdread WIP 1 by ChroniclesofMan Legendary-Class Superdread WIP 1 by ChroniclesofMan
It's been decided, she's a Superdreadnought. There is no getting around it.

When comparing her to the Archangel-class, I realized that the Archangel's status as a dread is centered around her weighing in at 310 million tons. Legendary's size and weight is easily 510+ million tons (haven't done the math). A jump size by that much (getting close to double) is clearly the status of a Superdread.

This one is going to take a while folks. So bear with me. But there is the latest wip with the Archangel-Class Gun-dreadnought.

So, just a puzzle I have.

Since she has effectively seven turrets to a broad-side over the Archangel's three, even given the caliber difference, how much 'energy' does/do her guns 'put on target' over her little sisters?

Also, given this continued growth in ship sizes, will we see other, smaller, stellar powers opt for 'Torpedo-boats' and 'Long-lance' type stirking weapons as even a glimmer of something to 'hold their own'? ;)

Amazing and fantastic work as always. *Bows*

The real punch is her new experimental weapon. You can see it on the new image. :D
This one has the hottest MAG drive

I would then curious to see what a 'construction/shipyard/repair' ship would look in CoM. That would probably be a rather impressive thing to see.

Would it be one massive vessel? Or would it be a lot of littler to intermediate sizes that would latch on like limpets?

You shortened the nose a bit, and elongated the engine section, right? It's a bit better proportioned now, when looking at all your other ships.
ChroniclesofMan Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I brought the nose in and actually made it a bit taller. I wanted to link it a bit with the Archangel because those ships are going to be built in tandem now, with Legendary being a revolution for a) Its size and b) Its function as a missle-nought

That is one big ship. In terms of displacement, it is about 5,100 times more massive than a Gerald R. Ford Class aircraft carrier. At that size, this ship could probably store spacecraft of sizes equivalent sizes to the aircraft carrier with ease.

I have a question about those gun turrets. It looks like for this vessel, they aren't mounted on the upper and lower most portions of the ship's hull. Does this mean that there are two sets of turrets mounted starboard and port side? If that is the case, that would make for some very impressive, stomach clenching firepower arrayed against anyone they have in their sights.

Indeed, the turrets are on either side giving it 56 45-inch guns in quads.

Aso for the size, she is pretty damn big. She can support and drop 2 heavy assault ships which are about 800m themselves and are designed for fire support and orbital landings.
