Ranger Assault Carrier WIP 1 by ChroniclesofMan Ranger Assault Carrier WIP 1 by ChroniclesofMan
A WIP of the Ranger-Class Carrier CVA-6, ANS Enterprise. I'm sure I'll make more tweaks and edits but this is the direction I went with "carriers"

Wow... Just wow. I think my previous favorite of your designs may get dethroned if this is just a WIP.

I wouldn't want to be the guy in charge of washing windows on this ship. XD

Do the corvettes get launched out the bays in her midsection like vipers from a Battlestar?

The carrier changed naval warfare forever. Love the corvettes, they add a great sense of scale (which is huge). What kind of defensive weapons does she have? Is this meant to be a Ship of the Lance?

There isn't a "Top FTL speed" in my verse. Ships in FTL can all travel the same speed. sub light is where it differs.

That is one impressive looking carrier. Just how large is it? A thought occurred to me, assuming this is a first generation carrier, it is entirely likely future carrier classes will be even larger.

Actually, that's isn't the case. This is the first production carrier, much like lexington or the yorktown class, and while carriers did get larger, they didn't by much after that.

Depends mate. She may be the very ship you want above your planet especially when the Coalition or the Empire show up. The Alliance will fight till the last sailor.

Hmm... The enemy should start investing in close-in weapon platforms and anti-craft missiles.
And plenty.

The Gamechanger of 20th century naval warfare is about to return.
Jaw-dropping work, Sir. I'm looking forward for the finished version.

Dem's a lotta launch bays. How many 'small craft' is this thing going to be capable of maintaining?

right now my estimates put it at about 200 corvettes, 100 frigates, and numerous support craft for the marines it carries.
