TDU Fleet - First Attempt

Postby Maranar » Fri Sep 07, 2018 6:02 pm

Hi!
I wanted to make my debut on these forums by posting my first fleet. I haven't played the game yet, so the background stuff might not necessarily fit the setting completely for now, but I wanted to add a bit depth to the fleet. I am happy about any feedback you can give or any pointers what I should look for.

Additionally I made a short Youtube video about this fleet, if you are inclined to rather watch that instead. Link to YT.

But now to the fleet:

Terran Defense Union Fleet

The TDU values their assets and uses defensive tactics to gain the upper hand in any conflict. Each ship is equipped with defensive systems, based on their shield ring technology. Nevertheless, Terran Command knows the importance of offensive capabilities and tries to balance these within their ship designs.

//>Designation: TDU Malteriton
//>Combat Role: Long Range Capital Ship
//>Loadout:
#System01: Support Range Weapon - Railgun
#System02: Communication Sensor
#System03: Communication Sensor
#System04: Defense - Shield System
--Description: This slow and hulking capital ship is the seat of the commander and designated as mobile command center. She is equipped with a long range railgun and sophisticated sensor equipment, allowing the commander to collect intricate sensor data of the surrounding space and objects.

//>Designation: TDU Ceratid
//>Combat Role: Capital Assault Cruiser
//>Loadout:
#System01: Assault Range Laser (Paired)
#System02: Assault Range Laser (Paired)
#System03: Point Range Bombardment
#System04: Defense - Shield System
--Description: This menacing capital ship is designed to bring as much fire power to the opposition as possible. She wants to be closer to the battle taking the attention away from the command ship. It is rather hard to ignore this offensive power house. As is it custom for the TDU, every ship is equipped with defensive systems through their shield rings.

//>Designation: TDU Gladibrach
//>Combat Role: Assault Frigate
//>Loadout:
#System01: Assault Range Weapon - Railgun (Paired)
#System02: Assault Range Weapon - Railgun (Paired)
#System03: Defense - Shield System
--Description: The assault frigate fulfills a similar role to the assault cruiser, but its improved mobility allows for more strategic strikes at high value targets. The inability to fight at point blank range has to be taken into account when choosing its target.

ImageGreyFleet019-Intercept Orbit-Assault Frigates by Maranar _bricks, on Flickr

//>Designation: TDU Totidius and Sepiidus
//>Combat Role: Interceptor Assault Frigate
//>Loadout:
#System01: Assault and Point Range Weapon
#System02: Spotting Sensor
#System03: Defense - Shield System
--Description: These two interceptor assault frigates are placed in a supporting role by bringing their sensors in, helping the more offensive ships to do their jobs. Nimble and fast, as well as flexible in combat, they are an important part of the fleet.

I hope you like the fleet!
Have a nice day!

Thank You for your kind words!

I added a new video of the building process for the flag ship.
In case somebody is interested in watching this...

Other than that I am in the processes of planning a second fleet to send against it. My initial idea is as somewhat haphazard bunch with some orcish flair to it.

Greetings
