this is awesome! finally a realistic shape of a space battleship, designed to take on opponents in a 3D environment with no objective "up" and "down" with turrets pointing in all directions and stuff. great!

Hehehe, thanks! Yup that was the plan when I made it. Omnidirectional  firepower. It kind of turned into a cartoon like cigar bechause I found that shape to be the ideal one. from the front and rear the ship has a tiny profile with lots and lots of " terraced" cannons. Hard to hit and devastating to meet. Same thing with the broadsides. bigger sillouette, but more cannons in range, and absolutely no blind spots.

Thank you! This is one of my early models, but I'm kind of proud of it still. At one point I'm going to make a new version with partial interiors and so on.

there aren't too many really believable ships out there where you look at the structure and say yeah that could be built. this one is. looks like a seed pod or something from nature. which makes sense. you gave your ship a macro structure and thats to me why it works. good follow up detail as well.

hull yes, however, the number of armaments attached, well i work for the military, we dont do that for a various reasons. one of which is maintenance.

mikemars Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
yeah i'd agree the number of guns is more than redundant. but cool. you could also say that why does a space ship even need guns at all. maybe it could use its mass as a weapon. or some kind of mass projectile. get it going in the right trajectory at high velocity and your done really. then sit back and watch the carnage

the mass effect series has all ships using a large mass accelerator along there bows. its just hard lining them up perfectly.

its still a logical design choice. provides 360 protection, and can fire from any angle. would make a good gunship for anti fighter combat.

Tnx! Yup, I spent 200 hrs on it. Mostly because of my poor SU skills, but also because it took a looong time to design. I went through several drafts/crashed concepts before I landed on this.

Thanks for liking it!
You think? You might be right. It's intended as an elite/shock unit within the regular navy, that enters the battlefield in squadrons at high speed and punch through enemy formations, all guns blazing. as such, it's bound to draw a lot of fire, so maybe it is under armed...

I'm making another one. It will have more guns... 56 turrets/batteries. I am also designing a new 12 barrel turret for it.

:iconebolabearvomit:
EbolaBearVomit Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011
And the escorts for that ship could be a cockpit on top of an engine that's surrounded by 4 multi-barrel guns:P

If battleships had stayed relevant, I would have liked to have seen how big their guns would have gotten.
I know there were international limits, but we both know someone somewhere was going to break that agreement.

I think you will see battleships regaining relevance in the future navy. But not in the traditional sense. I think they will return as big arsenal ships (as proposed by the US navy) with several railgun batteries, and as drone operation platforms. for shore operations, more than ship to ship. It makes sense, as the massive aircraft carriers with all their support are getting obsolete because of the astronomical running costs. Also the guns will return, when the railgun tecnology matures. It will always be cheaper to fire a round, than to send a missile or plane. I think cost is going to be the reason for their return. Regarding battleship sizes. Have you ever heard about the american panamax proposal? An american battleship hating senator ordered a commission to find out just how big(and expensive) these ships could get. Thew max size was set by the locks in the panama canal, if I remember correctly. I saw a pic of the proposal once, and I seem to remember it had 4 six gun turrets. Also Hitler ordered the design of a couple of battleships that were supposed to be 120000 tons. considerably larger then the Yamato/Musashi class. They even laid down the keel of an 80 or 100 thousand ton ship in wilhelmshafen, though it got cancelled as the Bismarck was sunk.

Oh man, this baby looks like a cross between the Imperial Star Destroyer and one of those massive Havana cigars Hemingway used to puff on. Impressive... and SketchUp, too. Damn.

If you make a giant space station shaped like Fidel Castro with one of these things flying out of his mouth its hangar, you will be my Internet-hero for the next month :)
