LIU Dark Sun
Unleash the power of a collapsing sun and bring your enemy to their knees.
About this creation
LIU Dark Sun - (Anti-Capital Ship Fighter)



The Ludgonian Industrial Union proudly presents its most powerful fighter, the Dark Sun. Lay waste to your enemy's capital ships, battleships, or transports with a single burst from the Dark Sun's main gun.



The Dark Sun uses some of the newest fusion technology to create a small collapsing sun inside of its main gun. At the press of the button, the sun collapses and unleashes a massive burst capable of destroying any sized ship, regardless of its shield system.







Its black coloration and sleek curves keep it hidden in the black voids of space. Your enemy won't even know what hit them.









The main gun makes up about 65% of the Dark Sun's length, but makes up nearly 94% of the Dark Sun's cost.


















The fusion chamber is where the sun is created and maintained until the Dark Sun fires. It takes approximately eight minutes to create the sun, so there is dead time between shots. Bring a magazine or something...








Various vents and heat sinks release the large amounts of heat generated by the sun. Without these, the chamber would burst.








Specialized cells direct the collapsing sun's energy burst. When firing a weapon this large, accuracy is important...







Behind the fusion chamber is the fusion generator. Its also home the Dark Sun's steering thruster(top) and secondary thrusters(side). The secondary thrusters steal energy from the fusion generator and will slow the main gun from charging. Use them sparingly in battle.







A closer view of one of the secondary engines. Also note the fusion generator's compression tanks on the left.








The rear of the secondary engines and some of the Dark Sun's greebles...err, we mean systems. Yeah, systems.







A view down to the Dark Sun's rear.








The back third of the ship is home to the cockpit and the Dark Sun's main thruster.







Radars sit on top of the cockpit.








More on the bottom.
















The Dark Sun's main thruster is of simple design. However, it is speedy enough to allow the Dark Sun to use its favorite tactic, Hit and Run. Devastate an enemy ship and speed into hiding until the sun is reformed. Also note the communication antennas and more steering thrusters.






An overview from the rear.









A crew of two mans the Dark Sun. One pilots the ship while the other manages the Dark Sun's main gun. Never before has two men held such power....






The pilot's controls...









The gunner's controls...



















The sniper of deep space, the plague of capital ships, the newest in warfare, the LIU Dark Sun. See your local LIU salesman or visit a LIU shipyard today!







Note: Due to sanctions imposed by the Universal Society of School Children, the LIU requires a background check before orders can be accepted for the Dark Sun....something about a school shuttle being struck....blah...blah...blah.

so it shoots black holes, good thing my heavy frigates advanced sensors mean that your ship will be seen, and while your ship may shoot at it, its wormhole generator will whip it to a different part of the universe before your black hole hits it... nice try, but no dice ;)

Nice design, which captures the imposing and austere feel of the ship. The control arrays with red seats are strangely appealing too.

Dear Emperor Ludgonious The Galctian Empire needs an ally since we are currently fighting 10 empires alone and we have no more ships since they have been destroyed and we are currently short on men. Please join my empire AND WE SHALL RISE FROM THE RUINS OF THE ENEMYS GRAND CITYS!!!!

Allies? The Imperium could use your help, fighting 9 other enemies and all. I'd happily put a Bolter shell through your enemies head.

nice job. But I have to disagree with the whole-"can destroy any capital ship with any shields" thing. Maybe any ship by LIU standards, but not by Doom Legion standards. Such is the Ship used to Transport Gigantus class Titans. -EITHER WAY NICE BUILD-

yah, ill order 20 LIU Dark Sun combo's... No, i don't want to pay 100,000 credits to supersize it. Does that come with a side of fries?(JK!!!) love this ship. i was wondering with all of the ships systems, and small size how the crew details could compare to your other ships. two man crew is better than any of my ships. nice work. again.

The idea of creating a tiny sun and then artificially collapsing it for use as a weapon seems reatively feesable. I don't know how you might pack that much matter into a small space though, without putting the plasma of the sun in extreme pressure. of course, I'm thinking "inside my box", which in the realm of general relativity and quantum mechanics is very small.

Awsome ship, I love the interesting design and the odd 'super weapon' idea. Although clearly a devestating threat to capital ships I can imagine that a Dark Sun would need to be handled wisely in between shots due to it's vulnerability to fast fighters or other light craft. It's kind of like a U-boat, the first shot is free, but you better be careful after that.

Your ability to build complex shapes is getting better with each creation... this is a far cry from your last warship, the box-like Orbital Bomber. The black design creates a nice contrast with the big red panel in the front, but again the engines are rather small for a fast-moving military warship. Also, I'd like to see some secondary anti-fighter weapons, but overall an excellent design.

Awesome idea and execution! What's the recoil on a weapon that size?! I'm listening to Slayer as I check out the Dark Sun and it's very apt; that's synchronicity for ya. I think I'll buy one of those-where is the "add to cart" icon?

Right on, GREAT ship!!! Some nice greeb work and an excellent shape. Love the heavy amount of instrumentation in the small interior shots. Interesting concept as well...so uh...how does the ship deal with the high particle density, residual elements, gravitation and potential time distortion? (sorry, I'm in to physics - couldn't resist! Ignore me.) Terrific MOC!!
