Centurion Battlecruiser by ClefJ Centurion Battlecruiser by ClefJ
A paint-make of the refitted Centurion battlecruiser of the Confederate Central Military. 1725 meters in length, it is a behemoth who's primary role is to protect planetary installations, engage in ship-to-ship combat and remain as command vessels behind the front. Forward and below the primary observation/command tower is an open-space repair dock for corvettes and frigates. It has vast holds for supplies. Incapable of atmosphere reentry however, it still bolsters a heavy supply of starfighters in its port and starboard 'fins'. On the ventral view of the vessel is an elongated scanning tower to map planets with great detail and efficiency, as well as provide a large sensor arc around the ship.

Armed to the teeth with large dorsal and ventral broadsides, the battleship also supports six long-range turrets which fire high-energy projectiles that, depending on yield, are capable of traversing the warp fields. Next to those are two forward-firing cannons that draw from the vessels capacitors, charged from an antimatter reactor tied into eco-point modules, which favorably draw from blue and yellow energies.

It's fun to do these things.

It reminds me of the Malevolent from the Star Wars: Clone Wars computer-animated television series, with the upper and lower observation bridges.  I wouldn't call it elegant from the protrusions and utilitarian design, though.  I would call it fearsome- and that is better for a military command ship.  :)  What kind of shields do you think it would have, and how effective would they be against kinetic projectiles?

Fairly good shield, working off a similar technology as Mass Effect, wherein their shield relays contour the hull. The shields would 'deflect' like proper deflector shields, trying to change the arc of the projectile, and that effectiveness depends on the offensive-defensive power ratio. Stronger bullet weakens shield effectiveness, vice versa.

Thank you for the compliments! Always a charm to see some interest! ^^

In the last week or so I was thinking about how to make a good force field work.  I think I have the core concept for it, but I have yet to be motivated enough to draw any kind of design for it.  Strangely enough, I was inspired yesterday at work by a collapsible cardboard liner.  Weird how I get ideas sometimes...

Wonderful though I wish I could see it at different angles

You could probably get someone to do it for you on this site.

I like how it straddles that gap between realism and elegance.
