    Hey any update on this? The design was going awesome! I want to see the finished design, including the forward and aft sections that have not seen a lot of detail yet!:(

    Nelson had two turrets with three guns each. I got sort of a fast battleship vibe, Concordia has the same gun layout as almost all American battleships of World War II.

    someone one scifi meshes posted me a nice set of pictures from the handbook , the prob is those pictures give me a bit of pause u posted the ships specs and doesent includes an axial mounted supergun of sorts but in those pictures u can clearly see somthing with a big barrel in the nose
    i know the game version concordia has a superweapon wicj is kinda flawed desigend whatever
    and from what i can tell in those pictures her deck i mean where are the gun turrets mounted its flat from tower to nose
    and the funny thing is it has an ancor like thingi on the nose wich is obviously not an ancor but still

    Both Nelson and her sister Rodney had three turrets forward, each containing three 16 inch guns within.

    A thought on the flight deck

    Hey all, I'm new to this thread but the model is looking awsome! Just a thought though on the flight deck, the Concordia is suposed to have some fighters and presumably the ablity to launch and recover them. As far I can see the current model has fighters being launched and recovered from the sides of the ship, along the "wings". What if they were recovered from the rear of the ship and then launched from the "wings" via launch tubes? (think BSG kind of system)

    I'm not much of a modeler, but the model seems to have ample room in the rear for a small flight deck to recover fighters which can then me moved to a launch deck near the middle of the ship.

    Seems like a realistic way to solve the flight deck issue to me, any comments?

    Way to go with the model by the way, I've been trolling the net for a while for something like this! :)

    I finally dug through Pilgrim Stars for information about the flight deck.

    The ship has both forward and aft-facing decks. The forward one isn't described, but it seems to be the less significant of the two - possibly for shuttles/launches/etc.

    The aft-facing deck is where the fighter complement is stored. It has a single rectangular launch-and-recovery opening with an energy curtain (which is large enough for an Errant to land).

    That sounds like the layout to Saga's Lexington class.

    "Aft" means rear.

    I know that, when you land on the TCS Kennedy during the last mission of the prologue, the flight desk is separated into two parts, the AFT deck is elevated, not completely separated, but it sounds like a similar layout.

    Well, Tiger Claw has shields so i think Concordia should have shields too. However, while Tiger Claw is aircraft carrier and relies primary on fighters for assualt/defense, although it does have anti-capital ship armament this is only meant as last-ditch effort if enemy penetrates fighter defense, Concordia would have relatively strong shields when compared to Tiger Claw (it should be noticed that, with smaller air wing there is more room for weaponry and other assets, like power and shield generators); and also her armor is probably very thick so she could take heavy beating even without shields.

    What with rear thrusters? When ship is in motion, it would be impossible to make take-off or landing as exhaust from engines would severely damage or even melt fighters. And I'm not even sure if there is enough space between engines and hull for even small tunnel for fighters.
