Threat 0xZRQ448E - Target codename "Adulator"

on Fri Apr 22, 2016 6:52 pm


The Support Frigate Type 69 Acraenos-pattern Mk.42 ―officially codenamed "Adulator"― is a support frigate/light destroyer employed by Draugr Clan Acraenos for both direct and indirect combat support. The Adulator is primarily used as a tactical carrier or torpedo boat, though usage in direct combat or electronic warfare roles aren't unheard of either. Like most Acraenos ships, it doesn't carry quite as may weapons as its peers in the other Clans― though what weapons it does have hit harder, and the vessel itself is somewhat sturdier. The Adulator's main two features are thus: an extensive prow-mounted sensor array coupled with above-average communications systems; and a bow macromodule slot, where varying modules can be outfitted to better specialize the ship for its role. A full briefing on what we know of the vessel's capabilities and features can be found here.

Field Recon:

A pair of Adulators attacking an unseen target; fore ship is in a carrier configuration, aft in a cruise missile configuration. Time and location of picture unknown.


Three Adulators attack a damaged Cepheus-class, believed to by PCG Anphistome; likely during or after Second Battle of Ankrak.

Simulated Macromodule Model Outline:

    So this was supposed to be a sort of birthday gift to Hakann, Dino, and S-H, seeing as their birthdays were all clustered pretty close together (Hakann and Dino on the 19th, S-H on the 20th); but life intervened, and the description expanded like it always seems to, so I couldn't actually upload it until now. Still, better late than never. Razz
    This is actually one of my favorite models that I've ever made, if only because the bridge reminds me of a WWII-era battleship in space. I really do like it. Razz The actual model itself was decent; I'm a bit rusty, so it's perhaps not my greatest work, but I still think it turned out OK― particularly the engine section. Razz My main concern is that it's honestly a bit too similar to the Arquebus for my liking― though both ships are based of the Vaygr Assault Craft from Homeworld (as usual, for the Draugr), so I guess that makes sense. Razz
    On a side note: not sure what happened to the image quality, but I swear the local file is way better; for some reason, uploading it really killed the quality. No idea why, but it seems to be pretty common...

Very nice. I'm a big fan of the battleship-esque look for starships. Solid construction and nice details... unlike most of my ships, it doesn't feel flat and boring. Razz

S-H: Yeah, the description is actually took the most of all the components needed to get the ship up here― actually building it included. Razz Took some effort to flesh out this ship's capabilities and history in the PCG-verse; glad to hear I did a good job. Thanks! Razz

SD: Aye, the battleship-esque look is probably my favorite aspect of this ship. Thanks! Razz
