Reaper-class capital ship
The Reaper class is currently the biggest capital-airship in production in the Tongorian Union. However, the Kwatar-2 might be a little bit bigger when it comes into porduction. Also, several other much smaller ships are being designed/built.
About this creation
Armament:
Grim Reaper
34 203mm coilgun
6 381mm coilgun
8 152mm coilgun
4 250mm railgun
36 missile silo
22 CIWS guns on both version

Ariete
22 203mm coilgun
6 152mm coilgun
1 high power laser
36 missile silo

First a 360 view of the Grim Reaper version



In my opinion it has a beautiful shape.

Here is two forward looking long barrelled 203mm coilguns. These guns are used at closer ranges. There’s also a twin-barrel 152mm gun above them.

There is 4 203mm coilguns on each side at the front, plus 2 152mm guns. These are used for ground bombardment as the „wings block their view. Above them you can see 3 CIWS guns.

These are the biggest guns on the ships. 3 381mm coilguns on each side as well as 4 203mm guns in rotating turrets. The Reaper also has anti-ship missiles

There’s 8 more 203mm broadside cannons.

For propulsion the ship has 6 huge engines at the front and 4 smaller at the rear.

This is the most powerful weapon on the whole ship. It consists of 4 250mm railguns, each barrel 36m long. The projectile leaves the barrel at 3600m/s.

This is another specialised variant, the Ariete which means battering ram in Italian. It excels at super-long range engagement.

It is clearly visible her that the 381mm guns are removed along with the turrets. This was needed as the new fusion engines for the main weapon take up a lot of space.

As the armor panels open up, it reveals the new weapon. It’s a high power laser, a real sniper, another ship designates a target and the Ariata engages it from a safe distance, hundreds of kilometres away since its "projectile" travels at light speed (so the hit is instant) and it doesn't have bullet drop. A fully charged shot can take out even a huge ship in one shot. It also has a rapid fire function. Of course, the shots are not fully charged but it can come in handy if the enemy’s guns can shoot back.

A few extra pictures.





Here’s a comparison with Jack Kenyon’s Air Dreadnought

Quoting Zach Sykes; Master of all Things Mars I never noticed thsi before and, as a matter of fact, I still don't see whats keeping it in the air. How is that thing flying?
It uses Traxxus technology, Pratt&Whitney magic engines. Btw it has downward looking thrusters.

About 10-15 minutes are required to fully charge it to fire a 10 second burst and 1 minute in rapid fire mode. A real plasma weapon fires a much slower projectile than a laser and it's not as energy efficient. It is better against electronics.

Another question. What is the firing time on a fully charged shot from the Ariete? Mor importantly, isn't that a projected energy weapon and thus illegal? I guess it isnt since its been allowed in the group. If that giant laser is legal then I want plasma cannons!

Quoting Matthew McCall This ship is just... wow. It has an insane amount of greebling and a very aggressive and alien looking shape, all of which combines into something extremely awesome. The little model of the dreadnaught is pretty good too. ;)
The alien shape comes from that it is based off a Reaper from Mass Effect but with a more ship like look.

Oh did not see this but from the top, it look like a star destroyer form star wars :)

Wow, awesome! I really love the unique shape to this ship. I especially found the armament to be interesting as well; they fit in very nicely! I totally have to add you as a favorite. I have no clue why I haven't done that sooner. Cheers :D

Quoting Christian Bish Nice, and a worthy opponent for my Eagle-class Battleship/Airdreadnought. The design is well played out and What is the ships biggest guns besides the laser?
Well, the Grim Reaper version has 6 381mm coilguns and 4 250mm railguns, but the size doesn't matter, the projectile's velocity is more important. It is in the description, though.

Quoting Zach Sykes; Master of all Things Mars As far as that ship goes, whats the AA capabilites? It seems more than defended vs other air warships but what about fighters? *hint hint*
It says at the armament part: 22 CIWS, which is a 30mm gatling gun. It also has a lot of missile silos which can be loaded with either AA or anti-ship missiles.

He has a point. I love how the dreadnought is puny vs this. In reply to the earlier comment, I think a galaxy wide war should be an entirely new D&C group. I'd like to start one but its a lot of work and I will need help. As far as that ship goes, whats the AA capabilites?

Wonderful design' loving the mini scale dreadnought as well! I was going to build one to compare with a possible flying aircraft carrier on LDD later on, but I guess you have done it first. Can you upload the file for the mini dread? One problem though, we aren't allowed projected energy weapons. My eagle eye lasers are ok because they are slow acting and exist in real life.they heat up the surface of planes and missiles to destroy them after a period of time. Large, powerful anti armour lasers are not allowed, neither are spacecraft, yet. We will move into space when only one faction is left standing.
