The Coalition Returns - WIP by ChroniclesofMan The Coalition Returns - WIP by ChroniclesofMan
The second ship in the Coalition's Vault-Series of warship, the Accipiter-Class battleship is a fearsome sight to behold.

A battleship in the truest sense, and dwarfing their Armored Cruiser escorts, the Accipiter-Class is the mainstay of the Coalition's Navy at the start of the war. Significantly larger than the preceding Liberty-Class Battleship, the Accipiter will give even the Alliance's newest EVOVE series battlecruiser - the Legend-Class (to be designed) - a run for its money. Armed with a standard missile broadside that exceeds the Archangel-Class Dreadnought (albeit with the Coalition's Smaller Type 32 Standard Missile), the Accipiter's combat tactic centers around raw, brute saturation of enemy defenses in the face of superior EW and ECW. In addition - strong computer integration links heavily with its escorts, allowing for seamless coordination when using the smaller, much faster Armored Cruisers to sucker larger units into the Accipiter's large engagement envelope.

The Alliance Data file on the Accipiter ends with this warning to all captains. "Accipiter-Class Battleships mark the first vessel in the Coalition Navy that achieves - to a degree - parity with the equivalent Alliance Vessel. Captain's are advised to use extreme caution when engaging these warships and not count on powered missile envelope superiority or defensive capabilities."

In short. the Accipiter, is a predator.

Love your designs; clean and weighty.  These are no-nonsense designs delivered with excellent clarity and skill.  They inspire me to dare some new directions in my current project.  Great work!

Yes, I had to Wiki the term "accipiter", and I like it being applied to a space battleship.

Now thats a big turret.
Hmmm about 3 - 3.5 km long ship.

3.5, 100 inch main gun. Largest naval gun ever even toyed about putting on a battleship. Most battleship turrets are 70inchers (though they usually have 4 turrrets)

100 inch Turret gun right? What about spinal gun?
ChroniclesofMan Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Spinal is a pair of 150-inchers but not the Alliance's triple shot variant.

Looking aggressive it has a WW2 german battleship feel to it. Which fits in quite well with the Coalition.
