Slow work last week or so, been pretty busy with other stuff...
But here is an update that should not dissapoint! The Liberty 'Dreadnaught' Class Battleship is implemented in game >=D
Haven't done the Upgraded versions yet though. Just the base model.
While smaller than standard battleships, the Dreadnaught class is formidible non the less.
It uses an advanced armor alloy and has a compact but highly reinforced frame. The shield generators are standard, though the Class 7 Thorium Reactor is highly efficient, more so than the other houses. The main drive is tied in directly to the reactor giving the Dreadnaught excellent forwards thrust though it still doesnt match Kusari ships in top speed.
The Dreadnaught is armed with 2 forwards arc laser turrets, 2 dual barrel laser turrets each left and right, and 7 heavy broadside rail-cannons each left and right.
This primary armament can be augmented with 2 experimental heavy plasma cannons on the nose wings, and a 4 tube torpedo launcher on nose.
In addition, the Dreadnaught has a large docking/cargo bay and is able to resupply nearby ships. (ability)
Liberty Naval Officers often make Dreadnaughts their base of operations, and if done so they can maintain control of a Liberty owned world from orbit even under heavy fire.
Dreadnaughts are also adept at blockading enemy planets, preventing them from building any orbital structures and stopping any supplies leaving the local area. (ability)
