Terran Trade Confederation

Image

Featured Ship


Emancipation Class Freighter
Spoiler:
Class: Emancipation
Type: Standard Freighter
Dimensions: L = 252 m, W = 55 m, H = 45 m
Role: Transporting Trade Goods and Military Assets
Generation: 3rd

Description: Using the same living and engine modules as the Autarchy uses an octagon shaped central shaft which allows for a four sided cargo orientation rather than the usual two sided orientation. This allows for the Emancipation to carry up to eight dropships along with it, making it a favorite of the Confederate Army.

Terran Ship Sizes
Spoiler:


1-20m = Fighter
Length: 1-20 Meters
FTL?: No
Description: The Fighter is the smallest possible warship. They have the quickest acceleration/deceleration rates. However, they do not have shields or FLT drives and thus must be carried to battle by a larger ship, usually a Carrier. Their roles include a wide range of functions but they are mostly used in attacking and defending Pinnaces and Warships.
Models: Escort Fighter, Heavy Fighter

20-50m = Pinnace
Length: 21-50 Meters
FTL?: No
Description: Pinnaces, sometimes called Bombers, are an integral part of any large space fleet. They usually carry light-medium anti-ship weapons and, having the second highest acceleration/deceleration rates, are used to perform quick strikes on the flanks of larger warships. Like Fighters, they have no shields or FLT drives and need to be carried to the battle.
Models: Retort 25 Class

50-100m = Corvette
Length: 51-100 Meters
FTL?: Yes
Description: Corvettes are the smallest ships to include an FLT drive. Of all FLT capable ships, corvettes generally have the highest acceleration/deceleration rates and the weakest shields. Because of this, corvettes are almost never seen on the frontlines of battle. Instead, they are relegated to scouting and fighter/pinnace screening roles.
Models: Retaliation Class

100-250m = Frigate
Length: 101-250 Meters
FTL?: Yes
Description: Frigates are the varied ships in most fleets with roles including escort, destroyer, missile boat, anti-fighter, and sometimes even assault ship. Frigates are usually the balance point of speed and shielding. While still very quick compared to Cruisers and above, most Frigates still have enough armor and shielding to take several critical hits before being crippled.
Models: N/A

250-500m = Cruiser
Length: 251-500 Meters
FTL?: Yes
Description: There are two main types of cruisers: Light Cruisers and Heavy Cruisers.
As the name suggests, Light Cruisers trade heavy armor and shielding for speed. They are the heaviest type of escort ship, being used to add much needed fire-support to convoy escorts and flanking squadrons alike.
On the other hand, Heavy Cruisers trade speed for heavy armor and shielding. Their main weapons are heavy and medium ship-to-ship guns making Heavy Cruisers the ideal ship for the line-of-battle.
Models: N/A

500m-1km = Battleship
Length: 500m-1 Kilometer
FTL?: Yes
Description: More heavily armed, armored, and shielded, Battleships are the next step up from Heavy Cruisers. They are the muscle in most of the larger factions’ battle lines, with the smaller Heavy Cruisers filling in the cracks.
Models: N/A

1-5km = Dreadnaught
Length: 1-2.5 Kilometers
FTL?: Yes
Description: The Dreadnaught is the backbone of larger factions’ battle lines, serving as both heavy hitters on the line-of-battle and as flagships in defense fleets. For most factions, this is as big as ships get, and as such, Dreadnaughts are the pride of their fleets.
Models: N/A

5-20km = Super Dreadnaught
Length: 7.5-20 Kilometers
FTL?: Yes
Description: The acceleration rates for these massive ships are laughable at best, making these actually very ineffective in battle. That’s usually not a problem though, since most fleets flee at the sight of these monsters jumping into their systems. The main goal of these ships is intimidation and demoralization, aiming to terrify the enemy into submitting.
Models: N/A

20-50km = Mobile Starbase
Length: 20-50 Kilometers
FTL?: Yes
Description: These are actually the most practical ship since the dreadnaught. While it is only possible to construct one of these by the taxing the resources of a huge empire, Mobile Starbases are the perfect asset for the empire who’s set its sights on galactic conquest. These behemoths’ purpose is to jump to the edge of a heavily defended system and provide a strong forward base for the invading fleet. They carry thousands of fights and pinnaces, and are able to receive and repair dozens of large ships at a time. The design also allows for the addition of one or more super-weapons for the purpose of destroying defending starbases and orbital defenses from a distance! They are so large that, when in a gravity well, the Lagrange Point is large enough for Corvettes and small Frigates to jump from. If the invading fleet is defeated, they can retreat back to the Mobile Starbase and mount a defense around it.
Models: N/A

50km+ = Planetary Assault Ship
Length: 50+ Kilometers
FTL?: Yes
Description: These ships are large enough to both carry enough troops to occupy an entire planet and a weapon large enough to crack that planet if it is decided that invasion is too costly. If an empire is large enough to produce one of these, they probably don’t have any enemies left to use it against…
Models: N/A

********************Carriers*********************

50-250m = Escort Carrier
250-500m = Light Carrier
500m-750m = Fleet Carrier
750m-1.5km = Battlecarrier
1.5km+ = Supercarrier
More on carriers later.

Re: Terran Trade Confederation

I like the format of your page, but your "Ground Troops" picture is squashed. Also, I recommend voiding your orbital platform.
This is a signature.

Thanks!

@ Prototype

No, I've been playing around with a bunch of smaller projects!

@ Mac

Yeah, I know. I loved the ground troops' photo so much that I just couldn't cut any of it out! And for the orbital page, I plan to add to that within a few builds!

The Mobile Infantry's Standard Mixed Battalion

Spoiler:
The Standard Battalion includes 3 Motorized Infantry Containers, 2 Light Battle-Mech Containers, 3 Medium Battle-Mech Containers, 6 Heavy Battle-Mech Containers, 1 Mech Pilot Container w/ Engineering Mech Bay, and 1 Armored Truck and Storage Container. This comes to a total of 16 containers which equals the capacity of the standard 16 crate freighter used by Confederate transports.
Image

Image

Spoiler:
Image

Each Standard Battalion has 240 light infantry with 12 EMVs to transport them, 72 LBMs (light battle-mechs), 36 MBMs (medium battle-mechs), 6 HBMs (you guessed it, heavy battle-mechs), 2 engineering mechs, 2 armored trucks, and enough rations fuel and munitions to keep the battalion going for 2 straight days of heavy engagement (or 1 month of patrol duty). This comes to a total of 370 soldiers.
Image


Light Battle-Mech

Spoiler:
Image

The older light mech model was too large to be transported in large numbers (only 18 mechs per 25^3m container), so the TTC commissioned a smaller, lighter, more travel-friendly light mech for the Mobile Infantry. This new mech features both folding barrels and sliding guns, allowing 36 (twice as many as the older model) to be packed into the same 25^3m container! While the new model does suffer a 15% decrease in firepower and a 30% decrease in armor, it features a 10% increase in speed and maneuverability. This, coupled with the added bonus of having double the units, makes for a 87% overall increase in offensive capabilities!

Medium Battle-Mech

Spoiler:

Fits inside an 11x11x7m box which allows for 12 to be transported per Standard Container.

Heavy Battle-Mech

The Heavy Battle-Mech can break down and fit one to a Standard Container:

120 bunks for the mech pilots, Engineering Mech Bay containing 2 Engineering Mechs, and some storage space for rations, fuel, and ammunition.

Re: Terran Trade Confederation

I really didn't expect for you to fit so many of those mechs into that box... it was impressive to say the least :|

Re: Terran Trade Confederation

I request a download link for the Light Mechs, por favor. I am entering a collecting phase, and my current goal is to nab all the cool ground vehicles and use them for evil purposes. Yours fit the bill nicely.

EDIT: ALL TEH MECHS. Even the old light one. And the box. I have no idea how I missed those on the old forum. They're awesome.
