Nice Pics. This should have gone in the "Ship Request" thread.
"Fortune favors the Bold..."
this looks like a prometheus class with only 2 warp engines
Since it looks so much like the Prometheus, I must ask; does it have MVAM capability (theoretically, not in-game?)
This ship has no MVAM. One of the many designs to come out of the Advanced Tactical Design Bureau in recent years, the Ares-Class is one of the latest additions to Starfleet. While still few in number, these ships are emininently capable of the border patrolling and problem solving missions they frequently find themselves engaged in, much like there sister class, the Achilles.
Faced with both the Cardassian Hutets and the Jem'Hadar Super Cruisers the Federation needed a hard-hitting heavy cruiser that was easier to make than the Sovereign-Class. Starfleet specified a long-range, multi-purpose, heavy cruiser that could penetrate Dominion defenses and strike Strategic installations with little or no escort. The Ares' exceptional low profile, quickness and armament could pit it against fighter class vessels, heavy cruisers, and small defended installations, specifically K-W production facilities. One of the critical strategic problems faced by Starfleet Command, if the Federation was going to win the Dominion War, was that the Federation forces were being spread too thin.
Between defending the Federation territory from the Dominion, and keeping a wary eye on the Romulans and trying to go on the offensive against the Dominion, Starfleet found it had too many obligations and too few resources. This problem became even more acute when Starfleet strategists had determined that the 'Achilles Heel' of the Dominion was the dependency of the Jem'Hadar on Ketracel-White. If the Federation- Klingon Alliance could destroy, or even severely threaten, the Ketracel-White facilities the Dominion's Alpha Quadrant Offensive would grind to a halt. Unfortunately the only ships the either Starfleet or the KDF had that could do the job were the Galaxy and Negh'Var class ships. Unescorted long-range strikes against heavily defended multiple targets currently could not be performed by any existing vessel. The Defiant-class with its firepower and cloak had too limited operating range and the Galaxy/ Negh'Var classes, while having the range were too expensive in to be feasible. Neither the Federation nor the Klingons were willing to commit such large fleets required to hit these targets. To do so would have entailed compromising defense of key Federation and Klingon systems. A new ship of revolutionary design would be required.
Ship designers of Utopia Planitia were up to the change. They not only designed a totally new class ship, the Achilles, and a companion class, the Ares. they designed and built it in under two years. By adapting current anti-Borg designs to the new threat a ship with revolutionary features that would enable the Ares to fulfill the role as long-range cruiser with firepower equal to a Sovereign Class cruiser. This was accomplished with the new micro-torpedoes arranged in a 'phalanx' array allows an astoundingly high rate of fire that will cripple any Dominion ship. With the 'broadside' arrangement of the 'phalanx' the Achilles can defend itself against Strike fighters defending the Ketracel-White facilities while it maintains its focus on destroying the target. Redundant warp and impulse nacelles were designed so the Achilles can sustain heavy damage, and still maneuver.
Quad rapid-fire Quantum torpedoes and enhanced Pulse Phasers enables the Ares sufficient firepower to destroy most large fixed targets in one pass. The new retro-thrusters enable the Achilles to maneuver as well as any Class 3, and most Class 2 ships. And finally, the Ares has an unsupported, self-serviceable range equal to the Galaxy Class exploration vessels that is required to operate effectively behind the Dominion defensive perimeter. These Phalanx Launchers are rapid launchers designed to fire Micro-torpedoes at a very high rate of fire, designed to overwhelm targets in a short time. These arrays are located at the back of the ship, facing up. Because of there location they give the Ares 3600 protection from above. These Launchers have the ability to target and destroy smaller ships with ease. It is equipped with 8 fixed Pulse Phaser cannons giving it a fearsome frontal assault capacity. Plus it had three Quantum torpedo launchers, one rear and two forward tubes.
Lol, thats the definition of the Achilles class for Dom Wars. Nice cut and paste tho ;)
All that info was available to anyone who clicked the link to the USS Miranda site.
I was keepin this quiet, but im doin this... infact its about done :rolleyes:
