i think a small photon cannon would be too OP, with this size you can only equip it on a destroyer
Maybe not a standalone Photon cannon, but maybe something with about 1/7 the damage, 1/27 the size, shoots for 5 seconds, and a cool-down phase of like maybe 15 seconds? I was thinking of a slightly smaller profile weapon that has high damage output, but a really long cool down for my bomber jets and my heavy strike fighter I wanted to build. Btw, is the stand-alone weapon system based on the MK 45??

My next modpack will be focused on destroyers and heavy destroyers, you can push this idea for the next community research grant

Stand-Off Weapon System, yes the visual design is inspired by mk 45 naval gun, but functionality wise, it works like a turbolaser from star wars

Introducing the Clairmont-Osgood Drive


Courtesy of Prof. Renée de Clairmont and Dr. Steven Osgood from NOVA Academy of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, this engine is a miniaturized version of the Epstein Drive.

Despite being 80% smaller, the C-O Drive is capable of producing up to 20% of the original Epstein Drive's thrust output. The compact nature of this engine also means that it can fit in a smaller ship, or install several in a cluster.

This model is also designated ProxMod2, which means it is equipped with Proxima Dark to achieve FTL travel, and uses a unique fuel pellet independent from the tech's fuel reserves, allowing ships to operate without any conventional fuel tanks

very well, then I hope the talon is enough. Then I must ask, any plans for smaller frigate classes or less cubic hulls??
You mean smaller armor plates? That's a no, because smaller plates will crumble when hit by explosion.

Think about it, which is better, a slab of armor 10x10 with 100 health, or 100 slabs of armor with 1 hp each? If you hit the latter with explosive with just 1 dmg, it will leave a hole in the middle
