Well i guess it was time to post some wips of my StarGate Carrier idea for the calling all stargate thread we have going on in here...
Inspiration: Tatics from a game called mankind, where i used the games carrier to be my main tatical advantage over the much larger bigger fleets, also pissed them off :flippy:, Also the real life tatical advantage a real carrier group has at sea, being a command ship and fighter support/group support ship.
Proposal: Idea here is to make a Carrier based operational Ship for the SGC. The Carrier will implement new Multi-Staged designed shields that only a ship of such size could carry the neccessary power output for such a idea. Each subsection of the ship will carry its own shielding along with one big shield for the entire ship, greatly reducing enemy fire effectiveness, greatly increasing fight staying power. More than likely being able to take multiple shots from the ori with minumial damage compared to the 3shot kill of the deadalus (about 12 to kill this thing or so)
Project: The Carrier will be designed as a fleet support ship, not money or power feesible to carry more advanced big gun all out power weapons, instead the ship is fitted with more of a i can do this all day long till the real fighters get here (deadalus/fan based cruisers/frigates...as well as its own advanced fighters 'something of a xf-320'). As the fleet support ship it will be able to dock two deadalus class size ships for repair or tow in hyperspace to save power consumtion fuel and resources. It will have the Cargo space to carry out long extended missions with the deadalus previously never thought of, including deap space exploration outside the gate network setting up a true alpha-beta earth site. As well as fleet support its main attack/defense capabilities lies in the fighters it can carry. A bay capable of maintaining and supporting over 200 advanced fighters, as well as being able to launch in upwards of 20 fighters in a single launch with 20 fighters in a 5 minute stand-bye launch mode.
Result: A Minature Floating SpaceStation, that is the Carrier, The City at Sea for the navy...The Movable Station for the SGC. In the end earth based tatics meets 21st century space combat exploration.
