Doesn't seem like it has a MAC gun, has a fair number of Archer missile pods (iirc) maybe a light carrier?

the front bit could be hiding the MAC because the way it slopes froward

I'd also go with supercarrier. Though it is rather heavily armed for a Supercarrier.

well i see 2 macs, underslung... easier to see in the previous pic.

And i say carrier, the launch bay being situated right at the bow, so the longswords etc fly straight out the front.

Oh and... love it.

Anyone ever heard of the UNSC Point of no Return?

Are you serious? That was the ONI's most advanced prowler with a very small crew. This is a huge barge and armed to the teeth. There's no way this could possibly be the Point of no Return.

point of no return had a big crew, normal prowlers were 45 meters and had a crew of 93 PONR was about 500 meters and at that ratio would have had a crew of about 1000

I'd say that it'd probably be a supercarrier, but not as large as the Covenant Assault Carrier, though. If you want the UNSC to actually rival the Covenant in some sort of way, make a carrier the exact same size as the Covenant Assault Carrier. That is IF you wanted to =s

I'll release the name for you guys since you've been good (and quite close to what it is):
The Orion class

The role of this ship will be revealed when it's ingame.

Where is the name derived from? First thing that popped into my head when I read 'Orion' was Stargate: Atlantis.
Nice name too.

I try to stay with the Greek naming theme, so with Orion being the Greek Hunter in the stars I figured it was somewhat fitting.

I'm thinking some sort of artillery... I mean look at all those pods. Plus, we really don't know how big it is (how I generally assume the class of a ship) so this could be huge (battleship/battle-cruiser) or medium sized (fast/atk cruiser).

On a side note, do the UNSC carriers (all of them, as I can't remember the SoF's) seriously launch fighter through the front of the ship, into the line of fire of it's macs? Am I the only one to think that would be a design flaw... I know that one would want the fighters out before you engage the enemy but what about emergency landings and combat launches.... yes I over think things too much.

Please note, I mean no offense to anyone... and to the guys doing this mod, you guys rock! I also think this ship is beautiful and can't wait to play this mod.

The more I look at it, the more I think battle-cruiser... as in lightly armored fast-attack battleship. Built for firepower with sacrifices in armor for speed.

No I don't think you're overthinking things. That's an excelent point. You would likely launch fighters from the sides, top or underside. You would not launch fighters directly in front of the main gun. Friendly fire isn't friendly. That being said the SoF launched her fighters and dropships from the underside of her "wings" and out of side and top mounted hangers. You can see it clearly in the introductory vidio when it shows the SoF prior to the first mission of Halo Wars.

One things you guys have to note is that typically, fighters don't go directly nose dive up when they just launch, they go straight or dip downward. So theoretically, the launch bay should be fine probably even easier to do combat landings because of it's positioning. Also I high doubt they fire the MAC gun while launching fighters, since it would mess up the launch vectors of said fighters.

However, There is only one glaring design flaw, the straight shot into the ship thru no armor. As a designer - I would have put the hangers onto the sides and on the bottom of the ship for 2 reasons - nothing critical down there, and second, I can lock off that entire area of the ship from the rest if need be quite easily if it's all one level.

Please don't see me as dissing the ship, it's a gorgeous ship and the hanger thing is really more of a taste in people's style of ship design more than anything else. I wouldn't bother changing the hanger because the position of the hanger is a trivial deal since we can't target individual parts of the ship.

We don't even know if it is a carrier though. All we know is that its a ship of war. Still don't change a thing she is beautiful.

Hello everyone, I just started following this mod. This ship just looks very nice, almost as if it were designed by BUNGIE (Is it? :P ) But anyway, I have a question- since I'm assuming its a heavy support cruiser, what is its Covenant counterpart?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

first i believe that the front port could be a light hanger. say a support hanger built to have only enough fighters to protect the main ship from bombers.

second unleash this ship is FREAKING HUGE those twin ports on the underside of the ship could be MAC but would be very underpowered. Mag coils can only be compressed to a certain point until they cease to operate. the MAC chamber runs almost the entire length of the ship. and two chambers running side by side could interfere with the others output

third even the most powerful UNSC ships could be beat by destroyers and cruisers. i seriously doubt that this could be a equivalent to a capital ship.

now I truly believe this is an absolutely beautiful ship.
