The NIVA Grayten was designed to be a fast intergalactic scout. Its weapondry is enough to be a threat to smaller ships but lacks any real firepower for a sustained fight.
As you can see, over 50 percent of this ship is made up of the engines alone resulting in a very fast ship. The 5 thrusters underneath aid in landing and maneuverability.
For armament it has a single mounted turret under the nose; 2 twin-mounted external long range missiles (LRM) mounted on each side of the bow; internal, single missile tube on each side facing front; twin-cannon turret mounted behind the bridge; 2 small twin- mounted cannons in front of and controlled by the bridge; and 8 anti missile dispensers located on the engines.
Communications are mostly internal located behind the bridge, in front of the twin cannon mount. An external comms set is located over top the bridge.
I apologize for some of the rough photography. Still figuring out my wife's nice camera :p
