Defiance class Supercarrier
The new Defiance Supercarrier.
About this creation
What is Defiance?
Defiance is spitting in the face of adversity.
Defiance is doing something when everyone says it can’t be done.
Defiance is standing up for what is right when no one else will.
This . . . is Defiance.


Defiance is packing the firepower to take on scouting parties singlehandedly.


Defiance shredding a missile storm almost 100 strong in seconds.


Defiance is reducing a salvo of 7 railgun rounds to molten silly putty in less than a second.


Defiance is hammering any aircraft within 5 miles to oblivion.


Defiance is bearing cannons that can take out a PT boat 10 miles away in one shot.


Defiance is picking aircraft off an enemy carrier’s deck from almost 50 miles.


Defiance is sinking a littoral combat ship in one salvo.


Defiance is delivering an unseen deathblow to enemy ships over 120 miles.
Defiance is raining hell upon your enemy from 200 miles.
Defiance is unleashing a missile storm near 50 strong.


Defiance is pelting your enemy from a thousand miles.
Defiance is striking high or low, from above or below.


Defiance is having truly global strike range.
Defiance is raining death to your enemies from 3000 miles.

This . . . is Defiance.

Now onto what you really want, the technical garble. Building, rendering, and creating this post, have taken almost 3 days counting the interruption to render Navy’s J-12 pics for him. I hope you have enjoyed the Shock and Awe factor I created above. Now let’s get down to business.
The Defiance class supercarrier is longer than its predecessor, the Legacy. It racks in at 1720 feet long with 1350 feet of usable runway space. Its tri-hull design combined with its heavily armored hull (6 inches of NCA standard Chromali armor) is almost unphased by 3500ibs of explosives, which is larger than most torpedoes. It can remain perfectly level and stable even with one outer hull completely gone. They serve a dual function as both stabilizer and torpedo wall.


Most of the weapons systems on the Defiance have a defensive role. Many of them also serve a more offensive role too.


The NCA standard dual gauss CIWS which uses two 8-barrel .50 cal gauss miniguns uses our standard radar/ultrasonic hybrid targeting system for enhanced missile-shredding accuracy at close range. It has 28 of them.


Our ALDS emitters can fire at 25 pulses per second and, using a special ion cell capacitor, fire stronger half second pulses followed by a half second recharge. If enough emitters target the same railgun round, it will be reduced to soft, molten, silly putty. It has 27 of them.


The Defiance’s SAM turrets carry a double stacked tube holding 2 missiles for a total of 16 missiles per turret. It has 8 of them for 128 total missiles before a reload is required.


The Defiance’s four 3” dual coilgun accelerated cannons can hammer enemies from near 40 miles. They are very accurate and can hammer even smaller speed boats with precision accuracy.


The Defiance also has two dual longbarreled 5” coilgun accelerated cannons that can snipe down ships and parked aircraft from almost 50 miles.


The Defiance is armed with two triple 8” coilgun accelerated cannons that can critically damage light ships in 1 well aimed salvo at closer range.


The Defiance carries 48 VLMS (vertical launch missile system) tubes. It also carries 196 of our VLS Arrowhead missiles that allows it to fire up to 4 deadly missile storm attacks. The missile has two main modes of attack as described below:
Stealth attack: The missile launches using a small secondary charge, shooting it out of the tube and allowing fin deployment. It uses single burn jets in its nose to aim toward the enemy ship and then the main engine kicks in. The entire process takes only about a second and the missile never breaks 200 ft. It then engages the enemy ship at the waterline.
High altitude attack: The missile launches with its main engine and climbs at mach 5.5 to escape nearby CIWS and ALDS weapons. It reaches at least 10,000 feet for optimum attack speeds. It climbs at between 60 degrees and straight up. It dives towards the target at between 35 and 40 degrees. The apex is determined by computers as it flies. It can use laser target painting for enhanced accuracy.


The Defiance has 26 large missile tubes used for cruise missiles (like the Kinetic Kill missile) and ICBMs. This is our Punisher cluster cruise missile that is armed with 36 warheads. It has a maximum range of 1200 miles and can attack from above or below. It can also choose to not release the cluster munitions and just be one big missile.


The Defiance can also carry this Phoenix ICBM. It has truly global strike capabilities with a range of 3000 miles and the same cluster warhead canister at the top that the cruise missile does.

Some other notes about the Defiance:
IT cruises at almost 40 knots thanks to its tri-hull design
It carries up to 120 aircraft (big aircraft like Thunderhawks, Spitfires, Cobras and Skyraiders) & helicopters.
Gunnery command, navigation, and flight control are all doubled below the tower as bunkers using cameras. The tower can be cut in half and the Defiance would go on as if nothing happened.
The Defiance was originally planned as Legacy II but was changed after the epic battle a Legacy had with some Gaufranian dreadnoughts.


Hope you enjoyed this! The main pic took 5 1/2 hours to render so I will likely not be doing this again.

EDIT: Thank you everyone for all the likes and for getting me on the Popular This Week area of the explore page.

Dude, that thing is heck from the sea. But I have a question about the LDD file. Does it cover the ship itself or just the weapons?

Awesome Zach, I gotta say I'm impressed with this mighty ship. It has enough power to inflict "scourged earth" to any who oppose you.

...Just had to come back and comment on this, again. Real nice work, and scary to even look at! I am considering your proposal, it may be a yes, I still am evaluating other factors (other people that are playing, my status on parts, etc). Huh. Whats Rutherford doin'?!

Quoting Simone O I really love this carrier.Only the cannons i think are useless for this kind of ship.Aircraft and missiles can destroy all the possible enemies.And without the cannons there should be more aircraft,the real power of the war! P.S. Against a submarine attack what are the defenses? Only anti-submarine aircraft?
My A-120 Spitfire and My FB-155 Thunderhawk. These are both attack/fighter-bomber planes with anti-ship/sub loadouts. Its stabilizer hulls can absorb torpedoes like a sponge. And I will ALWAYS put cannons on a carrier BECAUSE I CAN so if anyone else doesn't like that, you are entitled to your opinion but know I am not taking them off.

Quoting Locutus 666 relax m8, I just wanted to say that besides some small CIWS or RAMs for defence the main weapon of aircraft carriers are the aircrafts.
Such is the conventional definition. I throw conventional to the wind. If I can add more weapons, I will. This thing was built to be armed beyond the teeth.

Quoting Locutus 666 I like this moc and the presentation is outstanding. But in my opinion, the carrier seems to be a little bit over-armed. But the ship looks cool and besides the mass of weapons very realistic for a future looking ship.
Overarmed? In a naval fleet the supercarrier is your quarterback. There is no such thing as overarmed or overprotection.

Wonderfully constructed, Zach! The hull of the Supercarrier is beautifully designed! And I absolutely love all the weapons! And I should let you know that you're one of 3 people who have made me like their LDD builds...

This looks great! Is your Class VIII going to be in this scale? I plan to build examples for every single class in the group just to show people what's up. I've got everything lined up. I want the real millennium to have at least 20K pieces. Wish me luck.

Quoting clayton Marchetti Awesome super carrier. The us navy should have a look
This was built with a battle in mind. My original Legacy survived a fight with Jack Kenyon's Air Dreadnought and this is built to counter everything he through at me. It is effectively indestructable. Yes, the US military should have a look.

NO. My class VIII will be 3 to 4 times this size if it turns out as planned and will actually be in a smaller scale than my oroginal Legacy.
