SR-1 Normandy



This is my second model, but first released, the SR-1 Normandy from Mass Effect. Model is in 3DS format, at 3093 poly's. Already scaled (To what I believe is reasonably accurate) at 115 metres. Please read the readme within regarding it's use.



SSV Normandy SR-1

Model: USS Prime

(From Completemasseffect.com)

The SSV Normandy[1] is an experimental ship that 

is commanded by Captain Anderson and later by  

Commander Shepard.

The designation of this three-deck ship "SR-1 

stands for Stealth Reconnaissance type ship, 

hull number one".

The Citadel Council helped fund the project that 

created the Normandy. The Normandy has a flight 

crew of roughly 25 with a complement of roughly 

10 marines. The Normandy is a prototype "deep 

scout" frigate, developed by the Systems 

Alliance with the assistance of the Citadel 

Council. It is optimized for solo reconnaissance 

missions deep within unstable regions, using 

state-of-the-art stealth technology. 


For centuries, it was assumed that starship 

stealth was impossible. The heat generated by 

routine shipboard operations is easily 

detectable against the absolute-zero background 

temperature of space. The Normandy, however, is 

able to temporarily "store" this heat in lithium 

heat sinks deep within the hull. Combined with 

refrigeration of the exterior hull, the ship can 

travel undetected for hours, or drift passively 

for days of covert observation. This is not 

without risk. The stored heat must eventually be 

radiated, or it will build up to levels capable 

of cooking the crew alive.

Tantalus drive

Another component of the stealth system is the 

Normandy’s revolutionary Tantalus drive, a mass 

effect core twice the standard size. The 

Tantalus drive generates mass concentrations 

that the Normandy "falls into", allowing it to 

move without the use of heat-emitting thrusters. 

The heat sink and Tantalus drive systems allow 

the Normandy to loiter undetected in an enemy 

system to monitor traffic, or drop infiltration 

teams on enemy worlds. Should the Normandy’s 

design prove useful in field tests, it is 

expected that a follow-up class incorporating 

"lessons learned" will be produced.

*3093 Poly's
*115.35 metre's long.

Other notes:
I'm releasing this as is because there is a 

number of things I cannot accomplish with what I 

currently have. However, I would appreciate it 

if somebody does set it up for Hardpointing, if 

I could be contacted regarding this (As I 

wouldn't mind seeing how the HP goes and/or 

revising it's setup before release. Contact 

details are at the bottom of the readme.

Other than that, I only ask that this file be 

packaged with the model at all times, and that 

credit for the model goes to me.

--I however do not wish that this model be 

ported to any game other than BC, without my 

permission. This applies to kitbashing too.--
