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.

Looks like the propulsion is a major weak spot, since the engine blocks are isolated in the back.
Looks cool!

That thing I like!
It is far better than the klingon tank, it looks just like something the federation would use.

I would like to see you design a romulan tank.

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.

"It's main gun is a torpedo launcher, giving it considerable punch right out of the gate."


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

More Star Trek stuff.

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

hm.... seems a bit overpowered.

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