Youshu Escort Frigate by Shimmering-Sword Youshu Escort Frigate by Shimmering-Sword
I've started switching more of my patreon artwork over to public view now that I have a steady stream of new work posting there, so I've got a batch of stuff to post here again.

This one is a simple escort frigate in use by Youshu naval forces.
Its long range capabilities are limited with only two modest forward guns, but two turrets of paired coilguns and a generous spread of 5 CIWS turrets make for great defensive fire combined with good maneuverability.

Very cool stuff. Is this gonna be for a game or you just making kick ass ship designs cause its kick ass?

We need way more sci fi warship designs where there are guns located at the bottom of the ship.

Why would we? There was a sudden surge in amount of books, tv shows and games that are aware that space is not two dimensional? Have I missed something recently?

It's something that seems weirdly under noticed in a lot of sci-fi. People seem to forget that spaceborne conflict is gonna be fighting from all kinds of angles so it seems to extend from that you'd want more weapons placed at locations that can better cover a wider range of angles rather than everything sitting on the top of a ship.

Playing 2-3 matches as a Vaygr against Hiigaran with above average player seems to cure it easily... after you lose a few battlecruisers due to them being flanked from above or below.
And that's before we enter modding scene that allows things like absolutely free rotation instead of just high degree angling of ships.

Well, it has one of the most realistic and viable in terms of practical use designs. Sometimes even more then Expanse even(though I can vouch only for the TV show and Donni from the book).

Reminds me of the (marsian) shipdesign of "The Expanse"
