File Description

Hey hey, another welcome surprise - a Species 8472 ship. There have been the odd few 8472 mods flying around the last few months but I still think we need more to enhance the race and this ship helps that out a lot!!. This is the 8472 Battlecruiser, it is a kitbash between the Battleship and Cruiser - makes sense to call it the Battlecruiser then I guess :). Personally this thing kinda freaks me out, which is good. Why? well the front of the ship looks like 4 large arachnid's fangs..as if the battlecruiser is gonna eat your ships :). Seriously, the model is pretty good. It does incorporate the better parts of both the Cruiser and Battleship although it is more akin to the Cruiser than the Battleship.. It is not as big or as intimidating as the Battleship but it's got enough bite to do a lot of damage. A very nice ship thats worth downloading.
