Ion Cannon Frigate - Oberon class
The Oberon is essentially a huge flying gun, measuring close to 150m long. In a desperate attempt to field more firepower for the fleet, naval command at Jupiter Shipyards decided to build a vessel around a massive Ion Cannon that normally arms a much larger ship like a battlecruiser or dreadnought. The result is a vessel with a very singular purpose - to point that very powerful weapon at the enemy to the exclusion of all other considerations...and pull the trigger.
About this creation
"Oberon" Class Ion Cannon Frigate
Length: 146m
Width: 30m
Displacement: 20,000t
Propulsion: 1 x Thoikol Fusion Plasma Reactor powering 2 x non-vectoring thrusters, with 2 x Gravitonic Rudders. 2 x Auxiliary impulse drives.
Armament: 1 x Jonsten-Syndac Ionic Cannon (yield rated at 400 Giga Terrons).
Crew: 80 officers and enlisted men
Atmospheric Capability: Limited


The Oberon comprises mostly of the gigantic Ion Weapon, with its support generators and minimal crew and life-support facilities. With no defensive weaponry as a standard loadout, the Oberon can sometimes be a liability to fleet operations. Nonetheless, every fleet admiral appreciates having more guns in the fight, and the Oberon does just that.


The business end of the Ion Cannon.

Wow! Awesome! I really like the gaping whole in the front! Since you are obviously good at shipbuilding, if you have time, please give me some feedback on this: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/280464 -JWA

My own ships have been influenced by Homeworld in their own ways. Besides, you could always take up LDD. It does have it's advantages. ^Blub^

Heh heh, I seem to be afflicted with a "Homeworld" bug....and these ships are my first attempt at microscale. I must say I'm enjoying it. Let's hope the supply of bricks doesn't run out!
Quoting Rabid Goldfish Wow, you keep 'em coming. Definitely a cool looking ship. I look foreward to what else you may bring into existance. ^Blub^
