Firstly, the docking ports located right behind the bridge have been identified as a weak point, potentially allowing a boarding party to easily capture the bridge with minimal resistance. All these upgrades ensured that a fully-stocked El Salvador could carry far more firepower at a fraction of the cost. Superstructure The armor of a frigate is relatively poor compared to that of its larger cousins and counterparts such as the destroyer, with only 60cm of Titanium-A battle plate. It can also launch 10 Strident-Class frigates to engage and deal further damage to the opposing fleet. History After more than a decade of constant losses in space and land, many hundreds of the Outer Colonies were decimated by the Covenant's advance. Check out our for a few suggestions on how you can structure your battle with additional conditions and formatting to make it more interesting. The line that started this thread was.
The results are justified, as the extra cost increases their awareness of the battlefield while retroactively reducing their enemy's ability to find them. The frigate's relatively wide design is supported by structural support ribs, allowing it to perform orbital incursions. If the strident has shields it'll go in the strident's favor. The plasma reserves of the first three turrets, however, were exhausted and it would be several minutes before they'd recycle. They are also cheaper to produce, allowing greater numbers to be fielded against the. Built around a single high-spin gatling gun, Bulwarks are compact automated turrets designed for use against missiles within a five-kilometre radius of the ship. The engines almost certainly use the energy obtained from this process to heat some form of reaction propellant which is expelled out of rear-facing exhausts to generate thrust.
If we are using that, then the torpedoes also have a mass of 189. They participated in the and the , although the only time the entire class fought in a single battle was during the Battle of. Find a flair you like, click it, and send the message it brings you to exactly as-is. The spectrometer offers a second useful skill by detecting emission build-ups, and the data can be used to compare with known characteristics of stealth ships to identify them. And the Barrel is just that. Secondly, the crew must take an elevator up several levels to reach the closest escape pods, affecting their chances of survival.
The antennae should split further into little pieces rather than just ending flat. Hotly-competing with other , the Nevada would fulfil a valuable niche as a heavily-armed long-range patrol ship. I don't know a ton about Halo lore, so I was just trying to educate myself. While sensitive enough to interpret an object's size, heading, and weapon discharges through even debris-filled vacuums, and can indeed detect if their ship is being actively scanned with , the system is unable to reveal any detailed information on the enemy. And yet the Cardassians are shown to be very far behind the Federation in tech.
The first set of three are running directly parallel to the surface it is mounted on, the next three are offset to 35 o, and the last three rows are set at 60 o. Lead ship of the Charon-class light frigate. The El Salvador-class assault frigate is a much more specialised and cheaper variant of the basic Nevada-class frigate, designed as the replacement to the old Charon-class light frigate. Firing constantly throughout any given battle are anywhere from twenty-four to fifty pods of pods, each which contain thirty individual devices. The split isn't particularly pronounced on this ship, with the superstructure connecting both with the first fifty metres. That's 75% the speed of light.
The captain resides in a command chair at the front surrounded by touchscreens which can bring up any information he desires. While Archer missiles are difficult to break locks with thanks they reliably homing in on laser-designated targets, their predictable flight patterns make them easy prey for point-defence systems. As of 2558, certain frigates namely, the 's ten sub-vessels possess technology. If you do not properly flair your post, or reply incorrectly to a post because you didn't know the difference between 'Battle' and 'Scan-Battle', you agree to forfeit to us your soul in perpetuity or another soul of equal or greater value. The featured a large rear section which had the capacity of holding several in addition to numerous ground vehicles. Although they cannot be seen, it can be safely assumed that frigates also possess multiple maneuvering thrusters to adjust a vessel's attitude in three dimensions.
When in this conversation did I ever say that they would use nukes alone? And yes, I understand that the ship will break the fragile balance y'all strive for, but seriously. A few things could also be optimised a little better, like the small dome objects towards the front of the ship and the turrets on each side of the ship. For this purpose, eight and twelve optional are fitted. Please tell me the mistakes in a comment. Not mention that Fed starships is capable of fighting that in warp speeds as well. It was envisioned as a replacement for the , a short-ranged warship that despite similarly using technology from SinoViet's other classes of frigates, never saw mass production.
To provide less destructive and more precise ground support, and to provide a longer-range defence against missiles, three have been fitted. We encourage the upvoting of all relevant content and have a wide definition of what's acceptable. All posts must be flaired. Apologies go a long way if you mess up. Finally, the armour is strengthened while weight and materials used are saved through the use of newly-developed grades of alloys, specifically Titanium-A armour, although this gives a barely noticeable increase in durability during combat. But yeah, that's sadly not Canon.
As it is more on dealing single-target damage, it is best accompanied by a fleet during engagements. This certainty didn't make an impact on the war A Covenant energy projector on the other hand has been shown to charge up within a matter of seconds. Their primary payload is a compressed ionic gas that is ignited into plasma upon impact, disrupting energy shields and has proven equally capable of burning through armour. There are four bridge stations: Navigation, Operations, Weapons, and Communications. This makes it equally effective at deterring both kinetic and energy-based attacks, neatly marrying the strengths of its predecessors. Alas, the Covenant's grasp of Maxwell's equations was ironically inferior to human technology.
