Yes but this is good concept work which Im sure didnt take you long, as you said you do it in your spare time. The point is you are still finding the odd moment to sketch which is important. Never put yourself down. You are good at what you do. You have inspired me.
I've got a better version, TR have got good spies in all races which steal all the blueprints they can, also according to Cataclysm they steal all ships they can as well... I think there was a mission in Homeworld cataclysm where Turanic Raiders had a Taidani HC, the one that was later captured by beast
also near end off the game there was that mission with a sphere of taidan Ions and a generator in a middle, so I took 3 cloak generators and 9 kadeshi multibeams to destroy that thing, what is most important all of them returned )
That multibeam is an awesome weapon, if you can mass produce, it can wipe out the HCs. (HC never produce fast as the frig class, but Relic was smart enough to give you an maximum number of each class) This thing is good all around, small ships will be outlast, large ships will be outnumbered, and same class out performed.
But at Exile era, I beg to differ. In-story, maybe. But in-game, far from it. Some of their unit classes are quite useful, if you can snag some of them. The Missile Corvette, for example. Special ability? 60 missile volley. That's vs. the Missile Destroyer's measly 32, mind you.
May be this one was made by the progenitors, TR copied that design to their own ability. I think the best ion frigate in the game was the Kindashi mutibeam, it would be awesome If I can mass produce 30 of them.
I wish I can have one the their mothership for the rest of the game, and see how much the Tiidan was in trouble. I really don't like the idea that the Kndish was never mentioned in the rest of the series. Back to the topic, I still remember the first time I got into mission 7, that thing does not have any apparent weapon mount, but the shape suggest its very unlikely to be another support vessel. I put too much faith in my destroyer to deal with them, but I knew I was mistaken after it shot out 4 ion beams.
I know it was impossible to capture anything bigger than your mothership can eat, but that turanic carrier was labeled as destroyer class. No need to reporgram that on my own someone already did a mod that you can play as them in mutiplayer.
