DefianceIndustries has quite a few irons in the fire these days, and one of them is this snazzy Bengal class strike carrier. Like many other popularfandesigns, it includes pronounced side launch hangars popularized by Wing Commander Academy. It's also quite heavily armed and could wind up in a couple of projects led by other talented Wingnuts. One place it probably won't show up is the Secret Ops model upgrade pack project, but that's also proceeding along very well too. There's been quite a bit of conversation about better ways to show off damage and destroyed capships. All of them sound like they'll take some complicated work, but the end result (better explosions and debris) should be worth it!
The HW mod is looking to add a Bengal to the UBW faction. So I'll move this up the chain a bit. This is still a rough clay, there are some fixes planned for it before its ready.
I had a destroyed Concordia-class lurking around from when I thought I was going to do some work in FS2. I tweaked the destroyed mesh (cut off half of it so it's only about 1,200 tris) added some hard points and created a quick destroyed texture and a victoryd ship.iff (might need some changes I quickly removed all the component and turret chunks). I bundled it in with the Victory model off of Killerwave's page since it's already in Vision Capship form. You can find the zip here. The ship is called vic_hulld.
