Well when a model picture of the ship comes we can speculate I guess... :) Although I couldn't quite imagine what it look like.

Oh and Timasku if you haven't already, don't forget to possibly consider the Osiris Battleship also, couldn't think of what use it would have with the already listed ship list but hey just a thought to throw in.

isn't the Osiris basically the liberty dreadnought mach 2
with a cloak

and wouldn't it be better to have the 4 separate battleships instead of (possibly) a really weird looking one(Union Cruiser)

Wouldn't one race with 4 battleships compared to the two other races only having 1 battlecruiser going to be tad unbalanced?

Oh and in reply to the ship list: Wheres the destroyer on the ship list?

and the Bretonia Destroyer is in the frigate list

i wanted something a little more special than the regurlar freelancer battleships. Something to show the union of the different factions. The Union Cruiser would have the best of all the separate freelancer factions (Rheinlands armor and capacity, Kusari's speed, Liberties Forward Weapon power, and some of bretonia's heavier weapons as its secondary heavy weapon system).

I could put in the Osiris as a faster, cloakable capital ship. it would be alot weaker than any other capital ship though, sitting somewhere in between frigate and capital ship.. how's that?

edit:

and yes, bretonia destroyer is the same as the other faction's cruisers. for bretonia it goes:

gunboat -> destroyer -> battleship

while others are

gunboat -> cruiser -> battleship.

;) they're the same thing
