CHAMPION-class Frigate by TheOrangeGuy CHAMPION-class Frigate by TheOrangeGuy
I REALLY hope this is the last time I have to remake this ship. I thought I was satisfied with the last version, but after studying it closely, there were just too many things I didn't like and I opted for a major overhaul.

Anyways, here it is, I hope you all like it, because its going to be the main ship in my upcoming webcomic (with Shawn Harris [link] ) Blood Money (which is why I was so anal about making it perfect)


Newest Version of: [link]


The CHAMPION-class frigate is the strike frigate of the UESF. Designed for high-speed hit and run operations, the CHAMPION-class is often deployed in a supporting role to battlecruisers and strike carriers.

In order to gain the tactical advantage of speed (and the long cruising times required for strike forces), the CHAMPION-class design makes some sacrifices in the areas of hull integrity and armor plating. Its weapon systems, however, are top-notch.

IN BLOOD MONEY: The 'Fenris' is a stolen UESF CHAMPION-class frigate under the command of Captain Jason Hart, a notorious rimworld pirate. Nicknamed 'Blackheart', Captain Hart has a reputation for deviousness and efficiency, and has evaded capture so many times that there he is rumored by many bounty hunters hunters to be a legend or a ghost.

The Fenris, in turn, serves Captain Hart perfectly. Quick, agile, deadly, and screened against the all but the most advanced long-range sensors, the CHAMPION-class has proven itself to be an incredible pirate ship: with a few modifications, of course.

This is a very well designed vessel from the appearance. With the exception of the "Forward Aileron" like structures, there is minimal obscuring of the weapons line of fire Tiered mounting of the main battery, and the inclusion of side mounted turrets to increase weapon coverage while adding to a devastating forward salvo. The addition of the aileron like structure suggests atmospheric or nebula operations.
