UNSC Heracles
Continuing in my line of Destroyers, the UNSCDF Heracles [technically the CMA Heracles]. A better known destroyer in the series, and also the first destroyer to ever be seen in canon works.
About this creation
Alright so if you haven't gotten it yet, I love the UNSC destroyer class, particularly this one. They just seem to have a great balance between armor, mobility, and lethality. No offense to the frigate fans out there, but it just seems a bit flimsy for my taste.

-Specifications:
Armor:
1.5 to 2 meters of Titanium A Battleplating [150-200 cm]
Dimensions:
L- 485 meters
W- ~100 meters
H- ~120 meters
Armaments:
- (26) Oversized Archer Pods
- (8) Point Defense Guns [Not Included in model]
- (3) 'Shiva'-Class Nuclear Missiles
- (2) Magnetic Acceleration Cannons [Likely load of 120 shells]
Propulsion:
- (2) Primary Fusion Drives
- (2) Secondary Fusion Drives
Powerplant:
- (2-4) Fusion Cores [Speculation]


Here we have the first canon depiction of a UNSC Destroyer, the Heracles. First time i saw this, it just gave off the vibe of a warship armed to the teeth.











I tried to sort of tweak the shapes that are seen in the image above in an effort to resemble to shapes present on the Frigate [to show how the destroyer class evolved from it], not quite sure if i succeeded in doing that, so please, do give some feedback.



the fore section seemed a bit bland to me when i first finished it, so i went back and added some windows.


this is probably what gave me the most grief... Originally i had the hangar bays in the fore section, but seeing as i had no idea what was in the mid section of the ship, I decided to move them. I'm not completely satisfied with the results; I will likely remake this section or possibly the entire ship, so expect a V2 in the near future.


Really, REALLY want this to be smoothed over, but i simply don't have enough tiles to do it, so for now this will have to do...



the bridge or brig; it remains in place when compared to a frigate, it's just more heavily armored [2 meters of Titanium A isn't exactly thin]. I'd like to change it to more closely resemble the bridge of a frigate. Still need to draw up a design for it though...




Cargo Bay, which probably has most of the lift elevators for heavy ordinance that won't fit through the docking bays or umbilical connections.


Observation Deck, or possibly a secondary brig.


Sensor Package, which as you can see, is armored too. 2 meters of titanium will do that.


Alright well that's all for the Heracles.
Ratings, comments, and critique is appreciated as always.
And thanks again for visiting!

Quoting Shawn Purkis he studs aroud the engine don't fit well with the rest of the ship, but that's my only complaint.
as is mine [well actually no, i have more complaints]. i need to save up some money to buy more tiles and other parts for this ship.

Quoting none... so sad dont know But, UNSC Destroyers don't have a fighter wing (I'd assume there's more than one class... artistic liberties etc etc)
well, i actually didn't mean for those to be single ship bays [i used a rough scale of 10m per stud], they're more like the hangar bays on frigates [seeing as the classes are related and whatnot], which are used for connecting to larger platforms and stations. Thanks for the feedback though, very much appreciated.

Oooh.... purteh. I like how its kinda reminiscent of the Marathon or Halcyon, and the touch of greebly bits. I also really like the design of the engines. But, UNSC Destroyers don't have a fighter wing (I'd assume there's more than one class... artistic liberties etc etc) Great ship at any rate... might take some of it for my own use
