Arcane-Class Heavy Destroyer WIP 1 by madeinjapan1988 Arcane-Class Heavy Destroyer WIP 1 by madeinjapan1988
A joint design between the Alliance and the Akrian Hegemony, the Arcane-Class Destroyer is a predominantly Alliance warships that marries the sleekness of modern Armstrong Design to the advanced missile systems utilized by the Hegemony.

A true ship of the Lance, the Arcane is equipped with tiered forward missile launchers giving the ship an impressive fifteen missile bow salvo - something usually restricted to broadsides for a ship of this size.

In addition to the large missile salvo on her bow, Arcane is equipped with a new high powered 150-inch mass-driver, larger than older armored cruiser's bow weapons. This high powered, single-shot heavy mass-driver gives the warship a powerful axial punch when serving in the Lance. Furthermore, this bow-focused weaponry makes the Arcane an effective pursuit and attack ship. Serving the Alliance well as a new workhorse in replacement of the rapidly aging Trafalgar-Class Destroyer Leader and somewhat long-toothed Storm of Olympus-Class Destroyer.

Rumors have even permeated that there is a stealth ONI variant of the Arcane that utilizes a highly expensive gravidium hull and singularity emission sink for enhanced recon operations - however the Alliance has staunchly denied the rumors.

---

A new destroyer fro the Alliance I cooked up tonight. The Arcane reflects the direction I'm going with Alliance warships in the future. More so than anything, I'm trying to bring a bit more diversity to the hulls. Hope you enjoy.

Interesting look. Is she also going to have mini-turrets, like the Storm Of Olympus? I thought that was a particularly good idea with that class.

She is. She is getting a new 8-inch variant (smaller than the 10's on the Storm of Olympus, but with a higher rate of fire and higher muzzle velocity translating to same KE at higher rate). Probably not as many guns either, she sacrifices a lot of her gun armament in favor of heavier missile and axial gun firepower.
