Internal, like a submarine.

no offense but just about all unsc ships use a forward bridge at the head of the ship or on the top of the ship the internal bridge design is more a covenant thing.

Reminds me of the railgun from Halo 4.

This is because it was modeled from that. I'm 3 years late to respond, but you were right, penguin.

Her height will be similar to the Marathon, so extrapolate from that until we get another fleet picture out. :)

Judging from structural support frames that I see, thickness relative to length, I'd say this ship could be a structural possibility upto (and perhaps beyond if there are heavy internal lateral supports I can't see) 2,500 Meters (give or take) by 650 meters (give or take), If her over all beam is at least 200 meters this ship could support itself without fear of structural failure or collapse if you turn to quickly. I mean this is a BATTLEship, right?

So just to be sure, the current UNSC capital ships are
1. Supercarrier
2. Orion-class Battleship
3. Everest-class Super Heavy Cruiser
4. Marathon-class Heavy cruiser
5?. Refit Halcyon-class light cruiser

I think the marathon is a cruiser, and there is the Athens Carrier and Phoenix class colony refit that are capital ships too maybe?

Supercarrier is our pseudo-titan.
Orion
Everest
Halcyon Refit
Athens Carrier
Phoenix-class Refit (Spirit of Fire)

so the supercarrier is NOT a cap ship?

It is technically a capital ship for the purposes of SoaSE: Entrenchment, but it is much more powerful than your standard capital ship.

in that case, supercarriers and orions are all that will be coming out of my shipyards

If you don't have fighter support and auxiliary ships, you're going to get killed out there, champ.

With this vessel, the UNSC shall truly strike down with righteous vengeance those Covenant bastards who would bring harm to my brothers and sisters of humanity.

This model is amazing. It makes me feel like a badass just looking at it.

My only issue with the UNSC as a faction, is that everything looks relatively similar and I can never seem to grasp a sense of size. Anyone else have that problem too? :s

I respectfully disagree. I think SotP's scale varies enough in scope so that even a casual player would be able to be able to pick out ships at a distance.
