Commission - Star Trek Tank by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Star Trek Tank by Shimmering-Sword
A Star Trek fan commission for ~MajorDiarrhia

The Somme Class 'surface defense escort' is equivalent to the modern main battle tank, though it comes with some added features that make it far more versatile.
It's main gun is a torpedo launcher, giving it considerable punch right out of the gate. Several phaser arrays supplement this firepower.
Most systems come with considerable redundancy. Teleporter arrays on the front sides and rear top/bottom work in defense and offense. The front top and rear bottom hull feature a tractor beam for towing. Optical systems and sensor strips surround the craft providing the crew with full 360 degree vision and detection. With a pair of warp engines it can fly as a space craft and move at a limited warp speed.
Standard issue red stripes are proven to make it go faster.

If it is a whale it is a very pretty whale at that. I wish I could draw as good as that but I am much more of a tinkerer and I have not have that much practice in drawing anyway so I create simple 3D designs for fun. I am nowhere near as good an artist as you are but I have a helluva lot of fun doing what I do. This is terrific work that you did here and I like many other of your designs too.

I'd *hate* to be caught in front of that.

Beautiful design, in keeping with the premise of TNG's functional and yet artful approach.

Over powered is a gaming term, it's what you aim for anywhere else.

I know..it's just seems a lot more powerful compared to other tanks, (or at least what I'd imagine other futuristic tanks to be like). Is this a main battle tank, or some sort of special scout unit or something?

Everything in Star Trek seems pretty lethal (like it should be), even when you have shields :D

I don't know everything about this unit as it's not something I came up with.
