"N.S.N. Burnham"

285920_20220801224021_1.png
285920_20220801224211_1.png

Model : DMS-DTR-H1
Manufacturer : Darvenstein Military Shipyard
Displacement : 36304 metric tonnes
Length : 59 Blocks
Height : 52 Blocks
Width : 24 Blocks
Top Speed : 122 Knots
Role : Precision Strike; Anti-Ship; Anti-Air; Escort;


Description : A Heavy Destroyer armed with C-X2 Photon Cannon array and twin C-X1Z Heavy Railgun turrets, this ship is capable of executing precision strikes over a huge distance. The aforementioned heavy weaponry requires N.S.N. Burnham and other ships in the same class to have 360 degree maneuverability, therefore the installation of gyroscopes would be counter productive to the ship's combat role. The long range weapon systems on this ship also boasts an excellent accuracy rating, which makes it the perfect Anti-Ship platform.

While assuming the role of "Sniper" in a battlegroup, Burnham-class Heavy Destroyers also have a grid of point defenses and stand-off weapon systems, which consist of RP-X2 CIWS and HP-150 SOWS respectively. The point defense grid, while proven effective on several scenarios, is still inferior to a dedicated Frigate, therefore making solo operations less than ideal for a ship of this class.

Requires NOVA, NOVA Frigate Starter Pack, NOVA Destroyer Expansion Pack, and NOVA CIWS

"N.S.N. Mariner"

285920_20220801224350_1.png

Model : DMS-DTR-11
Manufacturer : Darvenstein Military Shipyard
Displacement : 30796 metric tonnes
Length : 63 Blocks
Height : 40 Blocks
Width : 18 Blocks
Top Speed : 129 Knots
Role : Orbital Strike; Anti-Ship; Anti-Air; Escort;


Description : Armed with Low Orbit Kinetic Impactor (LOKI) System, this class of Destroyers is the only model with orbital strike capability currently deployed by NOVA Spaceborne Navy.The ability to strike ground targets from low orbit is vital for NOVA Strategic Doctrine, which is why at least 1 Mariner class Destroyer is attached to every battlegroup to anticipate a planetary blockade, since the mere threat of orbital strike is often enough to intimidate a planetary government/monarch to surrender to NOVA forces.

Aside from orbital strike capability, N.S.N. Mariner and other ships in the same class are also equipped with a grid of point defenses and stand-off weapon systems, which consist of RP-X2 CIWS and HP-150 SOWS respectively. A large torpedo bay is also present in the bow of the ship, which grants the Destroyer a decent amount of Anti-Ship capability.

Requires NOVA, NOVA Frigate Starter Pack, NOVA Destroyer Expansion Pack, and NOVA CIWS

"1st Battlegroup, of Imperatorial Fleet"

Anti Piracy
Disaster Relief
Commander-in-ChiefImperator Darvenstein
Formation Line-Up1 Atlantic-class Supercarrier
2 Burnham-class Heavy Destroyers
2 Mariner-class Heavy Destroyers
3 Ashford-class Frigates
FlagshipN.S.N. Atlantic

The 1st Battlegroup of Imperatorial Fleet consists of entirely new generation of Starships utilizing bleeding edge technology developed by NOVA alongside DMS. This battlegroup is centered around the flagship, N.S.N. Atlantic, a Supercarrier capable of projecting power far beyond the reach of a conventional Starship. The other ships in the Battlegroup are essentially escort for the Supercarrier, each with specialized roles and capabilities.

The new generation of Starships widely utilize Space Torpedoes developed by DMS. These torps have a maximum range well beyond any other conventional weapons, making it the perfect choice to engage other Starships. There are 2 options of space torps provided by DMS, Nuclear or Plasma Warheads. Nuclear torps triggers a catastrophic explosion when detonated, making it a huge threat for other ships. While plasma torps creates relatively smaller explosion but can melt through armor, creating less collateral damage and making it ideal for heavily fortified targets.

These Space Torpedoes are available in Frigate Starter Pack and Destroyer Expansion Pack

Every Starships in the Battlegroup are equipped with a grid of point defenses to destroy enemy missiles and other threats that are closing in. While an Ashford-class frigate has the most coverage of point defenses, other ships in the Battlegroup are also capable of denying enemy missile strikes on their own

These CIWS(s) are available in NOVA Unofficial and will require Random Additions by Legionite

AIF 451 "Armstrong"
A medium sized heavy attack aircraft/special forces helicopter, used mainly for clandestine Specops missions.

The AIF 451 is a dual rotor, medium in size helicopter armed with an array of weapons, ranging from its main weapon, a 76mm autocannon, to several missile types. It has a top speed of 68mph at regular advancement tilt, and can reach 168mph with boosting.*BOOST SYSTEM CAUSES UNSTABLE FLIGHT, USE IN MODERATION UNTIL FIXED.* it carries a flight crew of two, a pilot and a gunner, and a special forces squad consisting of 6 expertly trained soldiers. it is currently in widespread service within the United American Federation and its military.

(Please ignore the rotors, blame the way the atlas rotors spool up and time variables.)

the AIF 21B Nightstalker is the latest version of the AIF 21 attack helicopter. it as a top speed of 81 MPH in optimal conditions, hosts an independent Fire control system, meaning you can fire each weapon individually. its maneuverability in mid air compares to no other helicopter currently in service by the UAF. it is equipped with four Hawkeye produced medium ranged missiles, four Jericho Cluster warhead missiles from Nova arsenal, four ATS 14 count missile pods, and finally, a high power 30mm chaingun, as standard. it has so far gone through three iterations, which saw the renovation of its flight control systems, its independent targeting, rangefinding equipment, and fire control systems. it is carrier deployable and has an indefinite range, due to its passive regen ability. it employs the use of EPMC shielding for its defenses, and comes equipped with INRV and IR targeting systems(not really). It takes heavy inspiration from the AH64A apache longbow, and the Russian "Hind" helicopters.

These are great, and it looks like your designs are mainly focused on troopers, so I'm offering you a transfer (and a cross corp promotion at the same time) from Lancer Captain to Trooper Corp as a Master Knight, interested? Of course this transfer doesn't mean you're not allowed to post ships anymore, I just think Trooper Corp is a lot more suitable for your build style

Pass. My passion still goes to building ships. I have a ship hull on the dry dock right now.

What was your username back when we started the original NOVA thread? After the release of NOVA modpack and the subsequent re-organization of our command structure, all founding members were appointed as 5 star officers

Experimental "Reaver" Corvette

20220905010016_1.jpg
20220905010138_1.jpg20220905010148_1.jpg

Main Turret - 1x
- 4x C-322 HE Hull-Mounted Chaingun
- 2x Seeker Missile Pod

8x Venture Avalanche Launcher

Experimental light corvette developed by Tryetech. While it lacks substantive battery capacity for a ship its weight class, its reliable main weapon of four HE chainguns and convalescent missile pods make it a good scouting and anti-smallfry ship.

Noted design flaws include, as mentioned, a lack in battery capacity due to light construction, and also few redundant defensive systems.

multitech turret funni

expect some sort of cool battleship with multiple superfiring turrets like at some point. i think it would be cool

After reviewing your extensive service record with NOVA, I believe you are eligible for a promotion into full Admiral, congrats Admiral Yuuki. Also, good work on [R E D A C T E D], the general public will never learn nor appreciate the sacrifices you made, but we will. Which is why I'm sending you 3 new Burnham-Class Heavy Destroyers, use them as you see fit
