Bigger and tougher than the Platyparian Space Cruiser, the Monotreme Class Battleship features the latest in Platyparian space warfare technology. Time to go push some weaker spacefaring nations around!... As long as they don't destroy the reactor...
yup, more firepower is always the answer- although fireflies had ways to go... of course, all my designs are free to copy
(Or to give another example, its like how the British bought US Sherman tanks in ww2, retrofitted them with heavier guns to properly fight German tiger tanks, and ultimately provided converted models back to the US when the latter realized they needed more firepower)
@TheNukeCat111 that is awesome! I really like how you are taking and improving the design. By all means install a rail-gun. At some point you should re-christen the fully modified ship (like what happened in IRL navies when warships are bought & modified), but do you mind if I occasionally borrow some of the improvements?
hello, the reacttor is finished and i have upgraded the point-def guns. Will work on engines and weaponry- can i fit my advanced railgun design there?
sorta a side project, made a new reactor- it's just that it consumes a load of fuel, if you like it I will add fuel tanks, don't know where tho
Thank you @TheNukeCat111! I'm pretty sure your weaponry could penetrate it, but yeah, I think it is nearly immune to most of the "basic" weapons like phot lasers, bray, and even incendiaries. As for the speed, I have no way of testing it, haha!
wow, I have to say this is one of the best armours I have seen in TPT, +1; on the other hand, wouldn't these engines make the battleship a bit slow?
Don't get me wrong, Platyparia still is happy to use gunboat diplomacy and military action against any wayward weaker vassal civilizations in its sphere of influence, but it's not picking any more fights with the big boys. For diplomatic purposes, Platyparia itself is somewhat within the VSGE's sphere of influence.
