R YOUNG by ARMAMENTFACTORY R YOUNG by ARMAMENTFACTORY
RODGER YOUNG CONCEPT
w/ Dropship


the Starship Troopers novel didn't have any real description on what the ships looked like, so I designed my own.

NOTES:
-red spots are gun batteries
-blue spots are "windows"
-yellow spots are heavy weapon batteries

Impressive- significantly better-looking than what we saw in Verhoeven's movie. I have to ask what weapons it has? What kind of gun batteries are the red spots- lasers or other directed energy weapons, plasma cannons or other charged particle accelerators, rail guns or other kinetic energy weapons? Do the heavy weapon batteries consist of missile or torpedo launchers, or are they dual-purpose, i.e., also used to launch mobile infantry drop pods?

thanks :)

the gun batteries are a variety of kinetic & energy weapons, ranging from railguns to plasma cannons. the heavy weapons are a mix of heavy railguns w/ nuclear payload, heavy laser cannons & 4 large particle beam cannons. there's a pair of dedicated "drop guns" at the bottom of the hull. :)

from the looks of all those weapons I would hate to meet her coming out of a dark nebula
