Here's a new terrifying trio of Kilrathi capships by Klavs. First up is the workhorse Fralthi. The curvy 'wings' help convey a sense of sleek speed that's fitting for a cruiser or light carrier. It's a stark contrast to the Snakeir which uses heavy, hard lines to suggest massive strength. The third ship is a very interesting design - it's Klavs' take on the Sivar dreadnought that attacked Goddard. Whether it's SM1 or Super Wing Commander, the games' Sivar has always looked a little odd. So Klavs has used more traditional Kilrathi design cues to create something with a 'maw' that looks more capable of taking out an entire colony. There's even some bits of Steltek green that poke through in a tantalizing twist...
Really in Kilrathi mode this weekend. Cat engineers really seem to excel in sinister design concepts. I wonder how it extends to their everyday items.

YOU WILL BEAR STARK WITNESS TO THE UNRELENTING HOLOCAUST WROUGHT BY THE KILLING POWER OF FELIX BRAND KITCHEN DISINFECTANT!!!!!"
One more really nasty, somewhat unconventional Kilrathi ship to add.
Tried to add just a hint of Steltek design cues. Could provide some insight as to why they never built another one... :)
As much as it ticks people off around here to redesign things, he's meant to be a take on THE 'Sivar' of Goddard Colony Infamy. Hopefully it'll all make sense when you see it in motion :)
