E.O.S. Phantom Class Escort
HISTORY: The point defense laser has proven to be the most effective anti missile defensive weapon in known space. It is cheap to produce, light and compact and most importantly it is devastating against incoming missile barrages. Unfortunately, firing between several hundred to several thousand point defense lasers in quick succession causes an unacceptable power drain on the reactors of even the largest combat cruisers. This power could be better put to use charging M.A.C. guns, heavy combat laser cannons and shield systems. When enemy forces began utilizing an ever increasing number of missile based weapons during fleet engagements it became clear that a solution would have to be found. In the end it was decided that a new weapons platform should be created with the anti missile role in mind from the outset. This ship would be small, but have a powerful enough reactor to power and fire at least ten point defense lasers. It would also be equipped with anti fighter weapons in order to provide added protection to the fleets vulnerable cruisers. CLASSIFICATION: The Phantom Class is the smallest capital ship in the E.O.S. fleet and is designated an Escort. PRIMARY ROLE: To escort larger cruisers and battleships and provide anti missile capability during fleet engagements. SECONDARY ROLE: To escort larger cruisers and battleships and provide anti starfighter capability. CREW: The Phantom Class Escort has a crew of four. Typically they are crewed by former starfighter pilots and gunners. The most important member of the crew is the pilot, who is typically the acting commander of the vessel. His position is the rear seat of the main observation cabin. In front of the pilot sits the primary tactical officer. His role is to set priority markers for the automated defensive laser system. Below the main observation cabin in the primary hull is AA missile control. This is where the secondary tactical officer coordinates the ships missile system. In the rear of the primary hull is the engineering station. WEAPONS: All Phantom Class Escorts are fitted with twelve MK-9M point defense lasers mounted in pairs on rotating turrets. This surpassed the original requirement of ten. These “mini” laser units are smaller and have a slightly shorter range than the point defense laser systems employed on most larger E.O.S. ships, however, the mobility of the Phantom Class more than makes up for this disadvantage. In the connecting dorsal between the primary hull and the FTL engines is housed four Micro MK-7 All Aspect Missile Launcher. These Launchers have limited range and payload but can track even the most agile starfighers. Two Medium MK-4B All Aspect launchers are located in the bow of the craft with a third mounted underneath the primary hull. These have a significantly longer range and higher payload than the MK-7, but the Phantom Class can only carry 18 of the larger missiles. SHIELDS: One Efos shield generator provides enough power to protect the Phantom Class from most starfighter laser weapons. The ship must rely on its speed, agility and point defense lasers to protect it from larger capital ships. ENGINES: The sublight engines of the Phantom Class resemble the combat thrusters of E.O.S. starfighers much more than they do the large systems of most capital ships. They are designed for quick expenditures of massive amounts of power rather than long periods of constant maneuvers. Two MK-3A Event Horizon SLE powerplants provide thrust while a system of reaction control micro thrusters help maneuver the craft. All information on this ships advanced FTL engine is classified. It is suspected though that the Phantom is one of the fastest ships in the E.O.S. fleet. SUPPORT CRAFT: The Phantom Class can hold one Shade Shuttle in its primary cargo bay. This craft can hold four persons or a pilot and 800 lbs of cargo and acts as a lifeboat in the event of the destruction of its mothership. It is also possible for the Phantom Class to hold two Recon starfighters http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/109812 instead of one Shade. OPERATIONAL: The 10th Escort Unit Composed Phantom EE 01, Traker EE 02, Defiant EE 16, Endurance EE 25 and Salvo EE 82, was escorting the heavy cruiser Artago in a cargo supply mission. The fleet was attacked by a force consisting of no less than 200 U.N.E. starfighters along with the Destoyer Berlin and the Light Carrier Constance. Only 11% of enemy missiles successfully hit their targets, causing minor damage to the Artago’s forward heavy laser cannons. The Berlin was destroyed by a direct MAC hit from the Artago, while the Constance was forced to withdraw. 67 U.N.E. starfighters were destroyed in the engagement, 50 of which were destroyed by the Phantom Class Escorts.
About this creation

The interior of the main deck. Missile control is in the front, while the main engines are located in the rear. Sleeping bunks and a conference table are the in middle area.




The conference area seats four and has two holographic HUD displays.




The interior of the main shuttlebay, showing both launch control and the emergency shield accesses.




Missile control is located forward of the conference and bunk area.




The main sublight engines are located inside the ship to facilitate in flight repairs.




An aft view of a Phantom in flight. It clearly shows the shuttlebay (top) the sublight engines (middle) and the FTL engines (bottom).




The observation deck holds the pilot who sits in the aft seat and the tactical officer who sits in the forward seat. The observation deck provides an excellent view of the battlefield.




A forward perspective view of a Phantom.




The shuttlebay with the bay door open and a Shade Class Shuttle preparing to depart.




The shuttlebay with the bay door open showing the interior guidelines.




A closer view of the sublight engines and the shuttlebay. The connecting dorsals between the shuttle bay and the main bull and between the main hull and the FTL engines are heavily shielded.




Three paired point defense lasers tracking their respective targets.





This underside view clearly shows the lower medium AA missile launcher and the quiad micro AA missile launcher.




The Phantom poses a serious threat to enemy fighter craft.




The main bridge with the glass removed in order to more clearly show the control stations.




The main shield generator provides a powerful magnetic shield which protects the Phantom from even the most powerful starfighter weapons, although the ship is vulnerable to the heavy weapons found aboard most capital ships.




Another perspective view for the record.




The Phantom Class has an aggressive and unusual shape.




The primary hull holds ten of the ships twelve point defense lasers and three of the medium all aspect missile launchers.




The fore end of the FTL engine bristles with a strange blue glowing technology that is highly classified.




The FTL engine is the most advanced in the E.O.S. fleet and incorporates radical and classified new technology.




The front of the shuttle bay, showing the main shield generator. The aft point defense laser is mounted on the top of the shuttle bay.




The primary hull of the Phantom Class can jettison the shuttle bay pod and the FTL engine in the event of a core breach or in order to gain maneuverability.




The Phantom Class can hold one Shade Class Shuttle or two Recon Cruisers or three Micro Fighters.

I could have sworn that I'd commented on this already. No matter, good thing I revisit pages a lot. This is an inspiring model, as I should really know because I built a model very similar to this, just one helluva lot smaller!

I had not bothered to count the studs before, but after seeing the internal compartments, I realized that this ship is larger than I had thought. And, this ship seems well balanced from the way it sits. The interior shots really add a lot to the dimensions of this MOC, and gave me a greater appreciation for the work put into it.

Very cool! looks like something out of Star Trek. This was my inspiration to build my U.T.M. Swift.

Quoting Alan Crisp Yep, I love the shape, instant Star Trek reminder. Is that bad? Never. That was just simply your inspiration, and it works. Very clever on the shuttle bay! But, I gotta agree with the less studs crowd... Yes, I sympathize on the fact that you ran out of smooth parts, been there, done that, will do it again soon... but all those studs detract from the very sweet shape and design. There has to be a way... And, is there an interior? I am not beating a dead horse on this subject, but I am just curious.
Yes, I will take some more pictures when I take it apart tonight.

Great job, you're a master of BIG ships. Interesting shape, reminds of a stingray. I like the many functions and the fact that it's built in minifig scale.

Very nice although I bet some well placed blasts could potentially knock off the top and bottom sections, due to how thin it is.

This is cooler than the High Ground because of the fact it is not a microship, and that it is awesome!

Quoting Space Pirate nice! cool shape and it's huge :) Less studs would be nice though
I know, I ran out of smooth parts halfway through.

Quoting affliction . Very unique shape. Agreeing with the guy below me, the engine on the bottom looks Star Trek inspired, but in a good way. Great job all around.
You guys are both right, the overall shape is inspired by the USS Kelvin from the new Star Trek Movie.
