Default AHL ver. 2

Mongoose's Fighting Ships book gave me an idea for some touching up on this model.



I altered the rear some from the original model. I'll be adding more turrets soon.

I can't remember. What is the big plastic bubble at the front supposed to be for?

Nicely done picture and model, but it does illustrate the craziness of the design (also, how ugly it is). Who thought that having the bridge in a huge, fragile, exposed bubble at the front of the ship would be a good idea? Also the rear turrets have half their field of fire blocked by the useless tail fin!

It's the "Flying Bridge" not the working bridge. It's the spot where the admirals go to star down at the planets they are supposed to protect...

Even better; shoot out the big fragile window and you've killed all the admirals! They might as well put a very big bullseye on the thing for good measure.

I guess people in the OTU are unfamiliar with the concept of using cameras and sensors?

That's pretty funny. I want some of whatever the artist was smoking.

Most of the admirals in the Imperium are recruited from TL 3 worlds.

Wet navy ships often have a "Flying Bridge" as well... it's a repeater for the engine telegraph and rudder controls outside the armor. It's for use in safe areas. It's not used in battle nor when battle is expected (unless there's no other choice).
