Victory class heavy cruiser
The Victory class heavy cruiser, a fast, powerful warship in the Allied Star Navy.
About this creation



The Victory class heavy cruiser was designed as a dedicated heavy cruiser to supplement and replace the ageing CA variant of the Warhawk class modular cruiser. While initial production runs proved favorable, and the ship's massive engines allowed it to arrive on scene in short order, flaws were eventually discovered in the ship's superstructure allowing penetration of the outer and inner hulls. Combined with the exposed position of the class's main batteries and limited cargo capacity, and large firing arcs with insufficient firepower at certain angles contributed to Manticoran Fleet Command HQ (MFCHQ) canceling production five years after it started.





The remaining units were kept on as heavy escorts and medium-capability line ships in carrier squadrons.





Inspired by the Babylon 5 spinoff series Crusade, the Victory class was an undertaking I thought long and hard about - getting the right parts, making the wings slope in particular was a challenge. The end result was a thing of beauty, but was not quite the scale I had hoped for. In terms of scale with my other warships, it's a heavy cruiser.

As with everything else, I encourage feedback.

It has a few too many studs in my opinion, but the triple wings and black-and-white colors look great. Keep up the good work.
