Commissioned: Comet Class Gunship by Colourbrand Commissioned: Comet Class Gunship by Colourbrand
This is another concept design for :iconshoguneagle:: a gunship for the Alliance - The Comet Class. It's a high speed, small but lethal vessel. Again I went by the given material below, and again the entire design was left for me to conceive and make but based on specific taste; Alliance ships are more sleeker, smoother, and sports car like. It is their way of showing they are different from Terran ships.

All Comet Class ships are named after famous and discovered comets.

For details, please check below.

Also check out his site - lots of great stuff there.

Open to comments, questions, and other comments - enjoy! :)

Hah- you could have a lot of fun in this thing. Size is no matter for zipping around in space, it just makes you more inconspicuous;
and if you are ever noticed by the guy you clipped earlier, you can give him a real surprise. Look at the offence this little thing carries!

I must say I am really liking this design a lot. I can definitely see what you mean by "sports car like", all smooth and tapered like that.
Sure adds to the speed aspect. The crew size is almost perfect, too- you have just enough crewmen to run the ship well, and enough 
officers to run the crew smoothly. :)

As an attacking-type ship, however, they make no bones about their capabilities. I love how you placed the turrets, and the thrusters
at the back are excellent.

Terrific work going on here sir! I hope he likes your design- I know I do! :D

Well said and thanks sir! He loved it! It suited him and he was a chuffed bunny!!

As you have pointed out - all the specs meet the design! I am glad you get that too :D

Let you in on the turrets. All the ones on the exterior can splay out to fire on the flanks! Imagine that!!

Then I daresay you were very successful in your undertaking- HUZZAH on your success!! :D

What is a ship without a grounded design? Specs are everything :D

Good gracous- he really designed those little guys with offence in mind. There's no escape!

This I love! Those forward guns must be brutal... unleashing a torrent of destruction on unsuspecting targets... or so ;)

Thanks sir :D  That is what I was aiming for when I did this - I wanted it to feel brutal :)


Your visits are jems sir :D

Shouldn't that be Halley, instead of Hailey? Just curious.
Colourbrand Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What he spelt sir - could be a Hailey's in the era....

Cheers for looking sir :)
