Some sort of mobile shipyard or factory, kindly provided by Wazubaba. Perhaps he'll tell us a little about it in a comment? : )

Cheers,

Dang. Makes me wish I had the money to buy it all that much more. Are you planning on implementing docking and factories so it could work with fighters/small ships for repairs and being a carrier?

Very yes!

Although you can't see them, on the left of this craft there are actually docking clamps. This picture also has them: Indiedb.com

Docking will make two ships act as one ship until they are undocked, which should allow for all sorts of crazy shenanigans.

Cheers,

Sweet. I can imagine how awesome it will be to have two splattering ram sized ships docking and going into battle.

So, we could, theoretically, clamp to giant thrusters filled with explosives, then use them for thrust, and then unclamp to launch them at our opponents? :D

Teh wazu needs to remember to actually check indiedb more often, anywho, as for a description, lovingly copy-pasta'ed from the uploaded file description:

The AST-01, often called the Astral, or more commonly referred to as the space turtle by it's crew, was created to act as a mobile factory. It's work surface is pure steel plate, with much of the rest of the ship being double thick tungsten.

The work surface of the AST-01 is typically flat after production, with needed systems and infrastructure added as needed. It's power room uses several tokamak reactors to produce the massive power needed for ship construction and powering the engines.

The bridge is located at the front of the ship, slightly below the work area. Generally the crew of the AST-01 do not actually stay aboard for long, having several work ships for storing tools, materials, and personnel that fly in formation with it.

In combat, while unarmed, the AST-01 is able to take a bit of punishment, as most areas of the ship are two meters thick solid tungsten, with some places reaching 4 meters thick.

Access to the ship is achieved along the bottom, with an access shaft in the rear and front. These both have access to the power and fuel bays, while the front also has access to the bridge. The AST-01 also has multiple connectors on it's sides, they are meant to allow other AST-class vessels to dock with it, for maintenance or fabrication of larger ships.

Epsilon Labs is currently exploring alternative designs that would be stationary, but able to connect on all sides, as well as have on-board storage for materials and crew, as well as an experimental heavy engine mount to allow for far higher acceleration.
