A Submarine designed to act as a Carrier and support craft for the deployment of underwater mobile suits.
About this creation
One of my largest constructions to date. It is my own design, inspired by subs I have seen in the Gundam series.
The sub is designed to carry and support up to two underwater mobile suits (in this my custom constructions LMS 03 Peral and LMS 05 Dorado are pictured). Theoretically it can also carry smaller subs such as the LSV 2 Tarazed. The sub is also designed with the facilities needed to sustain the crew and itself engage in combat where necessary.
All compartments can be isolated from each other by internal doors. Entry and exit from the sub is through two airlocks on the top. Other main doors are included at the front for deploying mobile suits from their launch bays, and at the back for loading and unloading from each cargo bay.

Aft upper junction room and airlock:
Tower airlock and upper forward junction room:
Captain's cabin and briefing room (fold up and fold down bunk and briefing table):

Engines and reactor rooms. Individual engines and reactors can be ejected if damaged. If the need arises, the entire engineering section can be sealed off from the rest of the sub, decoupled, and even be piloted as an escape sub.
Empty and full cargo bays:

Your design seems massive and unusual, but interesting. When you put some more pics, that would be cool to put some comments to explain in which part we are and the fonctionnalities... :-)
Please come over to see my sub too!
