H.M.S 'Relentless Hunter' G.A.I.A. Corvette
Well, this is my first "capital" ship for G.A.I.A. and it is at the same time one of the smallest of the whole fleet. I just hope none of you guys will be disapointed that it is just such a small vessel. Unfortunately my 'Excelsior' has eaten up all my money for LEGO so far and I won´t be able to come up with huge creations for a while. Anyway, I had a lot of fun builing this, so I hope you´ll enjoy!
About this creation
Hello and welcome to the Relentless Hunter, one of the thousands of corvettes serving in the fleet of the G.A.I.A.! It is a ship of the rather young 'Triakis Class' developed by
RMC Aeronautics, in cooperation with Outcast Industries from Sirius, at the shipyards on the Mars moon of Phobos. Some components are developed and produced in Sirius and then brought to the Sol system via the SOL/SIRIUS Hypergate.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr........

She is hungry for a carnage!




The generic overview. Looks kinda racy, doesn´t it!?


Ventral and dorsal view. She´s got a black belly for being less visible from a planets surface and a blue/grey back for being harder to see when touched down on water and even under water. As most of G.A.I.A.´s capital ships, this predator is completely sea-worthy and in this case even especially as a submarine.


Engineering section. Here we see the engines and the armoured domes of the twin reaktors, protected by one AA laser cannon each. Normally one of the two reactors is shut down and only activated when increased power is needed. Starting the shut down rector takes only a few seconds, because it is always kept on operating temperature by the other one.


Yes, there are propellers behind the engines...


The propellers serve two functions: First, they are used for propulsion under water (Who would have guessed that!) and second, they are used as heat exchangers for cooling the exhaust gases. That makes the 'Triakis Class' more stealthy.

In the middle you can see the rear torpedo launcher. It can fire multiple kinds of ammunition contenting conventional and nuklear torpedoes and even more sophisticated stuff (CLASSIFIED) !


The front arsenal, two torpedo tubes, firing the same ammo as the rear one. The light grey part under the nose is an ion cannon for disabling ships that must not be destroyed. The auxiliary comm antenna can hardly be seen between the two torpdo tubes. The red dish and the teeth house the aiming sensors. On the left you can see the nozzle of a light rail gun.


Starbord light railgun.


Middle section with (from left to right): starbord docking port, ventral sensor dome and AA cannon, main starbord wing, reinforced RCS thruster and below it the ventral docking port.


This strange device in the middle of this picture can be one reason for switching on the second reactor. Its exact function is highly classified, but suspected to be a cloaking device from Outcast Industries (Sirius), developed from ancient alien technology.


Cargo hold/boarding door opened up, the airlock in the back leads to the inner cargo hold.


The bridge and the sensor mast, which can be folded backwards when entering an atmosphere. Thre bridge is well protected by two AA cannons and thick armour plating.


Located right behind the sensor mast is the hangar. It can hold four small vessels, like shuttles, fighters, or whatever is necessary for the mission. Standard is one shuttle and three fighters, usually 'Lughnasadh Fires' with fold up wings.


Here we see one shuttle departing. When all ships are on a mission or none are needed the hangar can also serve as a cargo hold.


The 'Relentless Hunter' during landing manoeuvre the wings are facing upwards for better manoeuvrability and the mast with the sensor domes/dishes folds backwards for protection.


Mast detail.


A 'Triakis Class' and a smaller 'Makaira Class' flying side by side.


Docking with each other. (Sorry a little blurry.)

I hope you enjoyed watching and reading this as much as I enjoyed building.

Until next time...

Quoting Max Pointner Thanks for the comment! The first positive one I've gotten from someone I don't know! I really love the names of these ships you've built. The design on this one is awesome! -Max
Nice to hear, buddy. It was so much fun building these ships. Well, your nice vig definitely deserves it and I normally ALWAYS return a comment. (As long as I don´t forget to do so!) - THANKS! ~Marc

Quoting Crimso Giger Really love the organic look of this one. Small maybe, but surely awesome !
Nice to hear that you dig this one. Somehow I´ve got the impression that smaller creations don´t get the same amount of attention as some of the big ones do. It is sad, because the small ones can also be awesome. ~Cheers, Marc

Quoting Parrington Levens GAIA's own Nautilus! I love the shark like shape, and especially the bit about this even being submersable. How cool is GAIA, is to have ships that fly in space or hover over an oceans floor? Awesome scope MArc, good to hear from you again, and great to see a GAIA major class ship from your shipyard. I would love to go on and on GAIA style, but I have a Blacktron 3 series to design for the Olympics. Cheers until the next time mate, Long Live G.A.I.A!
Thaks Parrington! No matter how long it may take, it will be definitely worth the waiting. I wish you all the best for the Olympics! ~Cheers

Thanks guys, the creation may be small, but the effect it has is already bigger than I expected! I´ve got a little harbor scene with this ship in mind, maybe I´ll post it soon.

I love the shark shape, it suits the name so well and gives some amazing lines. I would have been tempted to make the weapons port into a jaw rather than place it on top, but that's just a personal observation - not a criticism.

Man if only barracuda's could fly. Wait a minute they do now, not to mention they are packing some serious firepower to boot! This capital ship is beautiful beyond compare! You added items like the docking ports and cargo bay hatch that I didn't even think of when I was building the Wraith. I tip my hat to your skills.
