Homeworld Mod Adds Confed Light Cruiser Update ID

The Homeworld Remastered mod has been looking at how to fill a gap in the Confed fleet lineup, and L.I.F. found their solution in the Tolmacs light cruiser. It's a fan design that was donated by Deathsnake after its use in another mod fell through, but the origins actually go back much farther than that... NinjaLA actually came up with the concept in a 2007 sketch for a potential comic. And Howard Day ran with it to create an exquisitely detailed ultra quality model the following year, which we never got around to showing in the news. But Wing Commander fans are resourceful and have long memories, so here we are today with the ship finally seeing broader use and getting more visibility today! It's a neat design with many similarities to both the Bengal and Exeter. It has two stacked launch tubes down the central fuselage for a small fighter contingent and a pretty good conventional armament. Check it out in more detail below:
