Battlecarrier concept 2 by s0lar1x Battlecarrier concept 2 by s0lar1x
Okay, so I fiddled around a bit more with this concept, and this time drawing it traditional way... Worked out much better imo. Also fixed up some stuff and changed the looks slightly, added ton of details compared the previous version... so, here we go.

This ship will appear sometimes soon in my comic, Final Sunrise, where it is used as airbase, being half-buried in ground. Until the commander decided to take off with it...

Serving as NEU's flagship, this hybrid ship is considered one of the 'Legendaries', being one of the many ships wielded in the last great war. Despite being old and somewhat damaged, it's still very formidable opponent when combined with other ship classes.

Large firepower, range and fighter craft storage. Lacks in armour and somewhat in speed, as well has some troubles with overheating when firing the spinal weapon.

I think the 2 hangars are what make the whole ship.  Good job.  :)

Made me think of Battlestar Galactica and SDF-1 in robotech both in concept & design. Liked them both and also liked this one. One question though. It seems a little compressed in the middle section. It would be much cooler if it had a few more of the segmented sections in the middle added on. ( I have a soft spot for looooong bowed carriers/flagships) overall a very solid design & you have quite a steady hand. well done.

This is a damned sweet design of a very heavy battle ship. Something like it couldn't look any more SciFi than this here :b This thing looks like you better go hide when this is passing the corner. Makes an impression like a star destroyer or that huge aircraft in Avatar.

Yeah, the Syberian Supercarrier Leviathan and the first Dreadnought class prototype, they're respectively about 1,5 and 5km long :la:

Nope, just plain 0.5 mechanical pencil and some eraser, then coloured it digitally, with some small edits here and there. :D

Thanks for taking my commentary well.

Doctrinally, this is the kind of ship that might be seen as the centre of a task force, relying on other (faster, smaller) ships to protect it, and laying down punishing fire from the main battery (both fighter- and gun-based). That is, it's a support craft in the same way a modern carrier is, but also capable of providing long range bombardment (against, say, dug in flak emplacements?) without taking fighter casualties.
