Shiva Class Strike Carrier (SSCV-2)
The Shiva Strike Carrier SSCV-2 was commisioned for a demanding client - the Terran Colonial Authority. Being far out at the forefront of mankind's expansion, they do not have the luxury of operating in mutually supportive fleets as per the inner colonies. As such, each vessel has to be self-sufficient in a firefight. Modelled along the lines of late 20th century Soviet era sea vessels, the Shiva is bristling with firepower despite being primarily a carrier.

Close-up shots of the Raven Trans-Atmospheric Fighter, with full wing extension for orbital re-entry.










The frontal launch bays are visible from this angle (beside the front communications array), and provide another avenue for fighter deployment beyond the usual topside bays. Also apparent are the massive side-mounted missile banks, each bristling with 50 Thorium II missiles. These bays can be re-configured to carry fighter drones when the need arises.

Wow! It's like something by Chris Foss, especially the stripey probes at the front. It took me a while to realise quite how big this ship is. These, and the others in your fleet, make me want to have a try at microscale: inspiring!

Nice build. I like the yellow and gray. In my opinion, the front end was your biggest success here. I also like all the greebling along the sides.

I'll be honest with you. I don't care much for yellow, especially as a feature color, but the Shiva looks pretty darn good. However, I love the Raven Mk2 fighters. They totally rock!
