The Celestion Mk 2 HWP was the result of a need for Earth Force to go toe to toe with the Valdorian dreadnoughts. As the Valdorian fleet outnumbered Earth Force 1.5 to 1, there was an urgent need to bring the Celestion fleet up to par with Earth Force Dreadnoughts. As a result, the Celestion Mk2 HWP was born. With 6 instead of 2 dual anti-ship torpedo launchers, and 18 multiple warhead nuclear missiles, the Celestion Mk2 could now lay waste to planetary targets as well as large masses of Valdorian fleets.

The Mk2, seen here with all missile ports opened, and all 18 Strategic Missiles openly visible.
The bridge superstructure has been relocated aftwards to accomodate the vertical launch tubes for the massive multi-warhead strategic missiles.
The Celestion Mk2 is outfitted with a larger vectoring thruster to compensate for the increased mass from the Heavy Weapons Package.
Many fleet captains have attested to seeing iconic images of a certain 20th century Mouse from the rear engine cluster units..... :)
I use a Pentax K20D dSLR with a 50mm f1.4 prime lens which I got second hand for a song. As for my intense building of late, let's just say work stress is a great motivator :)

Man you've been churning these bad boys out. It's amazing that you have such high quality builds in so little time. How do you get the pictures so crisp? Anyway, this one's a stunner. Destroy!
