Hydra class Heavy Cruiser
A heavy cruiser designed for both independent, long-range operations and support of battleships in fleet actions.
About this creation
The Hydra is a heavy cruiser and ship-of-the-line developed in the waning days of the Onyx Empire. Despite shouldering the costs of development, no Hydra was ever completed under the Onyx flag. Today, Hydras operate equally on independent long-range operations and in support of larger vessels during fleet actions. The primary anti-warship weaponry is comprised of five Relativistic Mass Drivers, backed up by eighteen Ashur cannons (deriving its class name from the forward most triple-turrets). At 594 meters long, with a full complement of nearly 7900 crewmen, pilots, and Marines, it is not a vessel to be trifled with.

The Hydra was the precursor to the Charon in both style and design. I built it in a few different parts (the forward bay/Hydra cannons, lower engine section, and main gun mountings), then connected them all via the multi-faceted hull. The inspiration for the main turret comes from coastal defense batteries from the UK and Europe, circa WWII.

I hope you like it.

The clever engine array is my favorite part, but the hull is also really well shaped. Nice work.
