from Kiith Soban internal intelligence evaluation, 10 AHL

The Raiders have yet to develop a true destroyer-class hull. Their recent missile destroyer is obviously built on a shortened carrier chassis, and this new standard destroyer is more an enlarged frigate than an actual destroyer.

Instead of the mag-array "sails" of the ion array frigate and heavy cruiser, the standard destroyer appears to use an upgraded particle stream accellerator to boost its ion beams' power and range.

There will be no further updates until it's fully textured and in-game. Image

Whats that round thing on the side?
And I like it, its simple but fitting with Turanic design themes, I think that thats this mod's best characteristic Image

Yup I like it very much aswell! can't wait to see it textured! Although I did always like the sails Image will it have any sort of solar paneling on it anywhere?

The round things on the side are the enhanced "particle stream accelerator" for the ion cannons. The Ion Array Frigate has a little round thing on the side in that approximate location that's only a texture, the Commander decided to bring that out a little. Image

I also like the design of that ship. Cant wait to see it textured and in-game kicking ass.

I just hope you stick to AA guns and don't put on turrets. Personnally I like AA guns better than turrets simply because they are better at taking down deadly fighters. Though to make it easier on the Kushan you may want to go with an extra set of Ions and a limited number and power in AA capacity. Perhaps the AA ability of a sup frig.

*makes a mental note not to show Syntax the pictures with the turrets*

Sorry, but there are going to be turrets. Very light ones, with guns probably equal in firepower to the AA guns that are currently (hint, hint) on the Torpedo Destroyer.

NOOO!! NOT MORE ION CANNONS!!!!!

well *sniff* since i seem to be out voted *sniff* on the issue of turrets vs. ion based offensive power *sniff* i will quietly go in the corner and kill myself... WITH THE DESTROYER TURRETS I WANTED!!!(by the way i do reallize it was said that turrets are there but being secondary weapons at best just isn't good enough for me, but the design itself is cool)

*huge earthsattering bang is heard*

*dies in huge explosion*
