It IS pretty cool. BUT, anyway, too distant from hiig design. It's like a 'vagyrized' carrier: not enough 'flat'. Those diagonal fins add a lot to this point of view (almost every additional fin, antenna, every thing that sticks out from hiig ships is flat horizontal)
Those kinetic cannons are really huge and cool. Such projectiles might really influence the ship's attitude

I've had a few more thoughts. The side-mounted main armament turrets can obviously fire straight ahead, up, down and rearward but seem to have little sideways ability. I'd like to see two more turrets, one above, one below, to give all-round fire capability. Perhaps on that empty front section? The triple sweeper (if that's what it is) could be raised slightly to fire over the top of the forward turret.


The vaygr bs has a similar limitation. Both cannons and green ions turrets are quite strictly hinged

Iunno... the design seems very Hiig to me...
Maybe the 'fin' does mess around with 'Vagyr'esqueness... but still...

A good design. Reminds me of those old Star Wars dreadnoughts. Its configuration hint of a frontal attack chassis instead of the broadside configuration of the current cruiser. Any additional details on the front would greatly enhance this model.

Also, imo, the current juggernaught model would be a great template for a higaran battleship (i'm not very fond of the current suicide role of this ship).

Not sure about that. It's not really big enough. It's more like a fat destroyer.

True, but tweak the model some, and give it some turrets?? I think it could look pretty cool! Very Happy

Have tried TPOF, where this model comes from.

It will need to be scaled up for it to fit the role of Battleship

What TPOF ship is that? Just wondering because I love that mod, but I can't remember this ship. Its obviously UNCG (DOL copy Vaygr).

I must agree on the glass looking windows in space but more or less it doesn't really matter we are also borrowing this from another mod so I'm happy we even have it!

i Think the Model of the Battleship should get a overwork. most here like it but i think it is not really the style of hiigarans.
