The Dawn Bringer is a Dark Star-class Capital ship best defined as a Super-dreadnought, capable of destruction on a massive scale, dare I say, planetary scale. The myth of the Dark Star-class Super-dreadnoughts being planet-killers is a stretch, not a big one though, because it only happened once to a small planet in the entire three decade-long service of this class. While supporting a planet-wide invasion on UY-379, two Dark Star-class Supers opened up on the same enemy stronghold, unintentionally, the Bombardment Command aboard the Angel of Fire transposed a number nearly doubling the yield of the superlasers, causing catastrophic penetration to the planet's core. It took twelve hours for the planet to split, allowing for the full evacuation of all friendly troops. It was found later that the lasers had struck one of the most fragile places on the crust, making penetration easy.
About this creation
The Dawn Bringer has two main bridges, Bombardment Command on the lower level, and Gunnery Command on the upper level. Bombardment Command directs the three Microwave-lasers and the nuclear weapons. Gunnery Command directs the nine turrets that provide anti-ship protection.
Perhaps one of the most frieghtening images ever seen is the sight of a battleship's prow bearing down on you, and this one is no exception; it's combined weapons could melt the shields off a battleship in less than three seconds flat.
The pride and joy of Bombardment Command are in these heavily armored doors...
They're coming... Have patience...
No fewer than four Tritan XVI Multiple Warhead Nuclear Weapons. Each one of these MWNWs is sixty meters long and weighs no less than 200 tons apiece.
Brickarms Bazooka rockets make good nukes, too!
This massive silo is also capable of harboring a full-sized Corvette (small destroyer) with wings folded.
The Dawn Bringer is no less impressive, here are the stats:
Length: 1,000 meters
Beam: 250 meters
Height: 60 meters
3-Microwave lasers for planetary bombardment (and the odd, slow moving, enemy dreadnought)
4 MWNW nuclear missiles
6 medium ship-to-ship turrets
2 heavy fast-track ship-to-ship turrets
1 anti-battleship turret*
*This turret weighs as much as a heavy cruiser
1 Type 7.0 nuclear-powered ion-particle engine generating 5.0x10^9 N
2 Type 5.7 nuclear-powered ion-particle engine generating 5.0x10^6 N
2 Type 4.5 nuclear-powered steering engines generating 4.6x10^3 N
2 Type 1.2 inter-atmospheric manuvering engines generating 3.5x10^5 N (inter-atmospheric manuvering takes more because of air resistance)
Classified, but the guns are accurate to 0.8 meters at well over two kilometers.
4 Double-redundant heavy alternating frequency emitters tied directly to the main reactor. These shields deflect electromagnetic pulses, intense radiation, plasma, and all forms of projectiles.
Command: 18th Deep Space Fleet
Section: 1st Flotilla, the "Hade's fury"
Years in service: 15
Showing off the engines
The three Microwave lasers are powered by three separate nuclear reactors, which in turn yields the whole power of the atom behind the weapons.
