NEOS 'Cobra' Heavy Battle Cruiser
One of the larger and more heavily armed cruisers in the NEOS fleet, the 'Cobra' was designed for naval combat against multiple adversaries. Enjoy!
About this creation
STA73262shipedit
The Cobra exploring the edges of NEOS-controlled space.
STA73263
Equipped with a grand total of 40 guns, the Cobra is used primarily for destroying enemy ships, and focuses less on intel and transport operations.
STA73264
But, which way is up? This way?
STA73265
Or this way? In fact, the Cobra uses a centralized artificial gravity generator that travels along the length of the ship, so any direction away from the innermost decks of the ship is "up". This polar system helps the crew to think three-dimensionally, which prepares them to deal with an attack from any angle.
STA73266
On one side, the aft section of the Cobra boasts a twin heavy plasma turret and a twin medium magnetic accelerator turret.
STA73267
In addition to the larger turrets, the Cobra is equipped with four heavy plasma batteries, four medium high-velocity plasma batteries, sixteen light pulse laser turrets, and six medium pulse laser turrets.

An observation tower near the middle of the ship can also serve as a command bridge, and can assume full control, with the right command codes.
STA73270
The front of the ship has a bit more firepower, having two heavy plasma turrets, and the quadruple-barrel superheavy plasma turret.
STA73271
Nicknamed "The Thunderstorm", this massive cannon is capable of crippling most ships by individually firing its four barrels, or, if the gunner feeling dangerous enough, the barrels can be fired simultaneously, creating a blast that can vaporize small frigates.
STA73272
Needless to say, the recycle time for firing all four barrels is rather lengthy, so an independant power supply has been incorporated to maximize the weapon's efficiency. Also, a small hangar bay located behind the power supply can launch fighters or repair vehicles to support the turret.
STA73273
The front of this side of the Cobra, complete with fangs and a command bridge. Multiple command bridges allows for control of the ship even when one bridge is destroyed, and commanders manning bridges that the captain is not at can provide important tactical data and advice.
STA73275
Now let's flip the ship!
STA73276
The engines, while not very powerful, are very efficient and allow for prolonged travel at high velocities, assuming there is enough time to accelerate.
STA73278
The main hangar bay, guarded by the twin medium plasma turret.
STA73281
While I did design the ship to appear correctly oriented standing on either side, I greatly prefer this side's aft look.
STA73282
More heavy plasma turrets, and one of the more peculiar devices in the Imperial fleet, the Remora.
STA73283
When docked to a larger vessel, the Remora draws from the host's power supply and acts as a heavy plasma turret.
STA73284
When on its own, its power is diverted to engines, giving the Remora functionality as a shuttle or frigate. However, considering its only weaponry requires significant power to fire, the Remora is inefficient in combat when not docked to a larger vessel.
STA73285
This side's forward turrets are slightly less grand than the quadruple plasma turret located on the other side, but the space is otherwise engaged. The two domes seen here are capacitors for a much larger weapon.
STA73286
The third bridge is located in front of these capacitors, and is the preferred deck for firing the Cobra's main weapon, the MMAC, or Massive Magnetic Accelerator Cannon.
STA73287
The MMAC is an experimental weapon that runs through close to half of the Cobra's length. It accelerates slugs that compose one thirty-second of the ship's fully-loaded mass. Only two rounds are on the ship at any given time, but each slug is powerful enough to destroy most enemy motherships in one blast, knock a planet from its original orbit, and bring the Cobra to a complete stop from ramming speed. The stress the cannon puts on the vessel when firing is a problem that the engineers of the NEOS have been trying to solve for years.
STA73289
The Cobra alongside a more standard NEOS cruiser, the Noble Bolt.


Well, as you can see, I've wandered back into the lovely genre of microspace. Lately, school has been kicking my butt, and I haven't been able to find the time or motivation to work on my CYOA. I managed to scrape enough free time together to build this, but the production line has been grinding to a halt as my schedule continues to get busier. I can't wait until winter break!

On a seperate note, you might notice that these pictures were uploaded on Flickr. Yes, I got an account, but so far I only have plans to use it as a means to upload MOCs to MOCpages when the photo uploader isn't working (like right now). This may change in the future, but I have a feeling I'll always be primarily active on MOCpages.

Anyway, thanks for viewing! I hope you liked the Cobra, so don't forget to leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Okay. Never mind. Just do what you do.

Quoting The Lego Obsessionist I feel like I've seen this before... Anyway, wonderful ship, I've always been a fan of your microspace.
You may have seen either my 'Inferno' cruiser or my 'Titan' cruiser. Both have a similar layout and color scheme to this.

Quoting El Barto ! Quite a monster! You loaded some BIG pictures, too. I like that gun on the topside, clever! You may have noticed that it was difficult to erase around the edges for that first pic. A darker background may have been easier. Nice ship, Dude!
Thanks for the tip!

Quoting M G - In a creative rut Great job Cody! But I have a question regarding the Pokemoc tournament. It says the group isn't excepting lego creations right now. Can you change that so i can add mine?
Thanks for reminding me of that! Just fixed that now.

Quoting Robin Longstride Very nice job! Love it man! Oh and By the way what does NEOS stand for? I need to start to build some micro scale! Great stuff! =D
It stands for New Empire of Skaborr. It's a small faction that goes along with the COP/UNE storyline.

Quoting Aidan Bryant That's a sweet ship Cody, really liked the idea of the attaching ship. Makes me want to continue my stalled project. Dang it Cody, why must you inspire me!!! Just kidding, but the current issue is parts and the angles I chose to work with.
Thanks, Aidan! Yeah, angles are always a frustrating aspect of a MOC. Good luck! :)

Quoting Baron Von Ben ~ The ship is amazing, but what I must say is incredible is the pictures! How in the name of all things made from ABS plastic did you get them so big?!?!
Since I'm having issues with the MOCpages uploader, I used Flickr instead. It lets me embed photos that are this big.

Looks like a real heavy ship. Nice design throughout, especially with the heavy turrets. With the sleek-ish design and the red and white colorscheme, it could almost be an ESC ship. The blue one also has an interesting shape. Very nicely done. ^Blub^

Very cool! Love all the guns and great work on everything else! I'd love to see this in a diorama, like with a tiny planet and heaps of other ships flying around this and an enemy ship etc. Anyway that's just an idea :P Hope you like it :P Still great MOC ;)
