Zevian Class Alliance Destroyer "Scarlet Sunrise"
A destroyer designed long ago when I began my long running RolePlay with my Fiancee. Now seen here for the first time!
About this creation


If the Nysta Class Carriers were the backbone of the Alliance Fleet, then the Zevian Class Destroyers were the feet that kicked in the enemy's teeth. Even long after the Systems War fought with the Federated Republic, these ships are the envy of all. Many will, and have, kill for a chance to see these lethal vessels.



As was typical of all Alliance-Era ships, the Zevian Class Destroyers were powered by two Magnetically Channeled Reaction Drives (MCR), which forced ignited fuel into a high efficiency plamsa burst that was magnetically controlled. Technology of this era often revolved highly advanced and sophisticated magnetic field technology.



As with the Nysta Class Carrier, the Zevian was constructed using Armor Tiling. While it was very useful for making battlefield repairs, and provided good protection against conventional weapons, the primary reason was that Armor Tiling would not hinder Effectors as much as bolted armor plating, increasing the chances of the Effector passing through before detonating.



The Zevian's largest weapon was a massive Linear Beam Cannon. This weapon occupied much of the forward narrow section of the hull, with capacitors for up to 5 consecutive shots before they would need to be recharged, and the accelerator barrel coolant systems then would need to be cycled to prevent the barrel from melting.



The Zevian's primary weapons, however, were the twin Class 4 Effector Cannons mounted on either side of the foreward hull. These weapons were so powerful that a single round could tear through any ship's shields, and a pair of rounds was enough to disable or destroy any ship.



The Effector was essentially an energy weapon, but with destructive force un equal to any weapon of equivilent size. These weapons fired a psuedo-crystalline energy projectile which behaved nearly the same as a extreme high-speed physical projectile.



Effectors would take raw energy and spin them to unbelieveable levels using a fast charge capacitor. Once charged, the firing chamber would create a distorted magnetic field, and then inject the raw power into the shaped magnetic "packet". Once this energy was inserted, the magnetic packet was powered and maintained by the power within.



Once fired, the electrically charged barrel would eject this energy projectile very much like a railgun, often emitting a large crack like miniture lightning. Once ejected from the barrel, Effectors would deplete their energy to maintain their magnetic packet. After expending approximately 45% of it's internal energy, the magnetic packet could no longer maintain it's containment, and the projectile would burst in a lethal blast, often obliterating much of the surrounding area. The denser the material that the Effector traveled through, the faster the magnetic packet would fail. Often, an Effector will detonate within a ship, unleashing untold horrors or destruction within.



In addition to the Primary Class 4 Effector Cannons, the Zevian mounted 8 double Class 2 Effector Cannons. While these Effectors were still very lethal to larger ships, they were more suited to dealing with frigates as the were mounted on faster tracking turrets. Class 2 Effectors also charged faster than their Class 4 counterparts, taking a mere 15 seconds to charge instead of 45 seconds that the Class 4 required.



Also mounted to the sides of the foreward hull are a pair of enclosed Heavy Torpedo bays, with twelve torpedos each, and additional shield generators. The torpedos could be actively fired, dead dropped like mines, or cold fired. When dead dropped, the torpedos would be eased from their tubes and allowed to float. Any ship that displayed an enemy identifier would active the torpedo once it had reached range. Cold fired torpedos would be fired from internal guass coils around the launcher, without firing the torpedo's drive. This would make the torpedos all but undectectable to enemy ships. The torpedo drives would activate once a viable range had been reached.

It is important to know that Effectors are so powerful that a single Class 4 can crack an energy shield in half, reandering the ship unprotected. While the Zevian mounted two shield generators in the stern hull, four additional generators were hidden in the foreward hull. Later, shortly before the Alliance would crumble, these shields would be "magically" augmented to take four Class 4 Effectors before burning out.



Here we see the Zevian's Main Cannon being charged and fired. The only reason that the Zevian did not mount a Class 5 Effector as a Main Cannon was that the Zevian's power plants could not handle the serious power draw of the Class 5 system. These weapons were very sufficient at melting through armor plating.

CREATOR'S NOTES

Well, update two is now complete. So you guys know, I had drawn out the blueprints to these ships (though they seemed to have disappeared). These ships were so fun, and brought me great joy to create, and I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed building them. One more update to go, and I'll leave you with a sneak peak.

Quoting arik lego oh wow, that's an awesome ship. slap some red on that to replace the blue and you'd have a great CEC ship.
Nah, this is a Role-Play exclusive. There won't be any variations except for ones that were present in the roleplay's story arcs.

Quoting Parrington Levens Frkn awesome man! Great design...
Thanks. I've really got to build a new GAIA ship, or finish the story I started. the next issue is half finished, but some of the shots are SO tedious, it's not funny.

Quoting Jesse Long I think that Parrington pretty much said what I was going to say, Rabid However, what I love the most about your MOCs are the little tidbits about the engines, guns, and torpedos. If weaponry could be developed like that in real life, let alone the engines, then that would most likely change the face of warfare forever.
Trust me, Effectors are very fearsome, so much so that about 2 decades after the Systems War, Effectors were banned from use. But one of my characters collected the ships rather than scrapped them. Good thing too. Most of these things I come up with, I here bits and pieces of tech and theories and I string the parts I like together and then make them as realistic as I can, which often means flaws and drawbacks as well.

You'll see about that small ship and more, soon enough. Until then, you'll just have to speculate. Checked out that unit and the new one, great work on them!

Quoting Mike C The marvels never stop I just love it. Excellent Destroyer, The weapon charging and firing is a great effect. This ship looks like it could seriously ruin a persons day. I could just imagine running from the enemy and what an uplifting sight it would be to see this ship come to your rescue. This is a classic build great work.
These ships were produced en masse until the end of the Systems War, when it was proven that fighters and bombers would be essential to victory. And I've got more coming, so stay tuned.

Quoting Thomas Z. Actually I'm already done with 3 (yes, 3)new Mobile Suits, but I hesitated to post them I had the desire to make them able to crouch. So I had to come up with an improved leg design and a new skirt armor. I will finish them by this weekend probably, but I always seem to find something on them to improve. The 3 units are a Sniper MS, a heavy support MS(cannon type) and an upgraded version of the Valor Gundam with wings! (It's a mix of Zeta,Impulse from seed and some F91) I'm also building the original Zaku as a base for future types and I'll do an upgrade for the S.I.N. as well! So I have lots going on, it's just I want to make them perfect before presenting them. :D
Sounds like me. Taking on so many projects. I'm almost done with this one, and only three or four more to go. I look foreward to seeing what you've got.

Quoting Thomas Z. Very nice looking destroyer and good job on the projectile! The fireing animation is superb!
Thanks. The Effector was tough, because of it's energy properties, and I think I may have been able to do better, but it'll do. And I'm very pleased with the beam cannon. What you got in the works next? I know you're doing something amazing.

That's okay, I've been having issues adding people, my requests not reaching the recipients, so I figured it was that. I'll send it to you in an email. Sorry to hear you've got no internet, I thought they fixed that already?
