  • Propulsion:
    1 x rear-mounted high-output Avis-Mayenne cruise a-grav turbine
    2 x fore nacelle-mounted mid-output Bureias support a-grav turbines

  • Speed: up to 220/140 (empty/loaded) km/h cruise speed

    2 x aft nacelle-mounted mid/low-output Auralis support a-grav turbines

  • Speed: up to 370/320 (empty/loaded) km/h cruise speed

    Several small-calibre AA guns
    Some torpedo tubes (both forward and sides faced)

5. Fuburias</size> class heavy battlecruiser (Adamant One) //fuburi - toughness

  • Mass: 78'000 tons empty; 91'000 tons fully loaded

  • Propulsion:
    1 x rear-mounted high-output Avis-Mayenne cruise a-grav turbine with afterburn (cooled with compressed air intaked through grilled nacelle supports)
    2 x aft nacelle-mounted high-output with Auralis mid-output manoeuvring thrusters

  • Speed: up to 430/370 (empty/loaded) km/h cruise speed; up to 580 km/h at emergency afterburn

  • Armament:
    4 x 280mm turreted cannon (2x top fore; 1x bottom fore; 1x top aft facing)
    4 x 160mm nacelle located turreted cannons
    Countless mid and low calibre fast-firing turreted cannons
    Countless AA guns


The specs are quite rough.
More information on Briggian Flying Vessels soon (TM).
One thing to note now - the max speed of the vessels is indeed limited by their mass and grade of their engines, but their manoeuvrability is not.
Even a giant, seemingly lumbering ship, can pull off rather complex manoeuvres, although it is done so only in emergency, as loops, tailslides, chandelles or stall turns would leave the unprepared crew of bigger vessels in a rather sorry state.

Thanks (omgfav?)^^

Well, those are designs for my own fantasy world (not overly steampunk tho, it's just mainly one country) I may or may not (more probable due to my laziness) write a story in.

Troszku małe, bo to tylko szkice (a i tak są teraz trochę większe chyba). Potem może zrobię każdego w większym formacie :P
A twoje okręty są bardzo fajne, ale wyglądają na trochę bardziej rzeczywiste niż moje :D

Komiks ?
Fajnie, ale do tego to zaparcie trzeba mieć :D

Twoje statki są bardzo saj-fi, choć zakotwiczenia a prawdziwych okrętach są ciut widoczne - i bardzo dobrze. Już widzę kilka z nich w pełnym wymiarze i z mnóstwem detali. Do komiksu mamy już scenariusz, pozostały tylko drobne poprawki związane z dyplomacją w historii, ale tym zajmuje się już z autorem tekstu wymieniony wyżej gość. U nas punktem wyjścia są okręty przełomu wieków XIX i XX - epoka wiktoriańska w kosmosie i na Marsie :)
