Orpheus supercarrier Part 1
This took me a while to build and I had lots of fun designing and making it. **INSTRUCTIONS COMING SOON**
About this creation
This is the Orpheus triple stack supercarrier combo platter meal of awesome. It took me a while to build and is about 1 foot 5 inches long. These ships were giant decommissioned mining barges that were salvaged, paid for, and revamped by the UNSCŪ From being designed to be manuvering between and colliding with asteroids, these ships are very heavily armored: more than 10 meters of Titanium A battleplate. This also makes them incredibly heavy compared to their size. The largest ship is called the Orpheus, the next largest is the Retriever, and the smallest is a refit Acclamator class assault ship called the Redundant When connected, they can link all their main batteries to pivot and aim at the same target simultaneously, causing massive damage. This was designed and salvaged specifically for space combat with the Covenant and hasn't lost a single confrontation with them.

Here, a nice profile shot showing off the bridge and numerous other greebles. For a ship this size, the bridge tower makes it seem much smaller. Sorry for the blue light. My camera went wacko.


This shot shows off some ordinance. The two heavy triple gun turrets at the far left. Fully rotatable and elevatable. The small point defense batteries on the topside (many more on the bottom) Mostly designed to stop fighter attacks and weaken small ship shields. Then comes the gargantuan mass driver cannons. One in an ion cannon, and the other is a plasma launcher. The ion cannon is fired, which takes out all electrical systems and either seriously cripples or destroys the energy shield. Then the plasma torpedo is launched. Two heat vent tubes are present at he tip of the barrel, obviously to vent excess heat, because plasma is hotter than the sun. The plasma then hits the ship, melting through alloy and decks, igniting the vented atmosphere and engulfing the doomed ship in a fireball that disspates soon thereafter, leaving the skeletal remains of a once proud ship behind... Hoo boy am I good at writing!


This one shows the ventral (underside) of the midships section. It includes some of the point defense laser turrets, the four large lifeships and the lower docking bay with electromagnetic docking arm.


In this shot, the docking arm has extended as far as it can go and has a Gestalt class transport attached to it. These usually bring up troops, supplies, ammunition, or the much respected mail man who distributes the mail among the crew of 60,000.


This is essentially the same shot as before, only that it includes almost all of the ventral point defense turrets. If this ship is confronted by an overwhelming force of fighters and light support ships that the Orpheus's fighters can't counter, it just rolls to present its underside and give almost all of its anti-fighter weapons a target. The result: a lot of destroyed enemy fighters.


This shot features the rear landing bay which holds the unnamed corvette/ yacht ship that I managed to squeeze in there. This picture is of the door open, and you can also see the Orpheus's three main engines, one of which is hidden by the bay door.


Once again, this is essentially the same picture as before, except for the fact that the corvette has moved out of the hangar and on to the pad from which it lifts off from.


Lastly, a photo of the corvette style yacht that comes out of the dock at the back. Haven't come up with a name for this yet... Please give me ideas for this in the comments.
