This is a vessel that's been sitting on my drive for a long time (honestly what hasn't, at this point lol) while I sat pondering exactly how I should make an SFC styled droner cruiser. Then it came to me. Those nifty little STX photon torps from the SOV by CG. Add some speed and high tracing ability and you instantly have an interesting drone cruiser. This odd looking vessel is basically a combat barge from which drones are fired in the battlefield. It should be escorted by destroyers and cruisers as it has limited phaser armament, but it's drones, which are controlled by computer or crewman interface, have deadly accuracy. They achieve this with their larger physical size, allowing for more maneuvering systems as well as a slightly larger warhead. The trade off is the launch bays are exposed and the load time is longer, and each drone is fired one at a time. For playability, each drone "tube" in the HP represents 2 launchers on the model, and each modeled on warhead is accounted for. The standard excelsior fwd and aft tubes also can fire one each. You can fire more than 45 degrees off target and still hit something. Just use your shots sparingly or you might be left without weapons while you reload.
====Starforce Productions Inaieu==== Credits: Model parts by: P81, Moonraker Textures: GAFY? Modelspelase Kitbashed by: Modelsplease Weapons: Drone modified from a CGphoton This drone cruiser contains files used from the CGsov. The Drone file has been renamed so as not to overwrite the CGphoton. The ship: The ship is armed with 10 port and 10 starboard torpedo launchers to fire the drones. That is exactly half the number of actual missles modeled on the ship, so each will fire 2. The drones have good tracking and slightly more damage than a standard torpedo. Plus, each of the normal locations for torpedoes fires a single drone. It also has a minimum arc for 4 phasers fwd, and 2 aft. Use drones sparingly as they have a 45 second reload time. This ship is best escorted by something with standard defensive capabilities. The drone launchers, being exposed, are also easily damaged. ======Legal mumbo-jumbo========= This BC Conversion contains work created by or under copyright jurisdiction of the Outalance mod team.
