Here we go!<P> Image <P>While this ship is not (yet) official part of the Blue Phantom Project, but still it has become part of the TBPP universe through multiple battle threads over at the XWA Upgrade boards. An old sketch, which I had originally drawn for a Dhilani troop transport, would step up as the design for this heavy battle cruiser.<P>Info:<P>The Inferno II started off as a unique ship, being the new flagship of UPMF Supreme Commander Ray Firkis, after his prior ship, the Inferno, had been destroyed during the Battle over Khetaris in 2531.<P>This cruiser carried on with the successfull broadside layout of her predecessor, while also expanding on the ground of armor improovements and forward/rear weaponry. Along with the general armor overhaul, the hangar bays have been moved away from their exposed lateral position into a ventral bay the Inferno II that offers far more protection from enemy fire.<P>Weapon-wise the Inferno II carries a series of very heavy quad DIP batteries that can each deliver more than twice the firepower of the old Inferno's large dual turrets. Also, while on the prdecessor the numerous defensive weapon emplacements often suffered from their rather exposed placement, the Inferno II's flak batteries are integrated into the main hull, covered by heavy armor plating to allow a greater deal of security for both weapons and personell.<P>Along with the Inferno II 3 more cruisers of this class were built. Two of these were eventually reported missing in action and were not cared about any further. Surprisingly, a few years later, eye-whitnesses claim to have spotted several Inferno II-class ships in a group of battleships under the banner of the Empire of the Seven Suns…<P>Length: 1.07 km<BR>Speed: 40 MGLT<BR>Shield Rating: 7296 SBD<BR>Hull Rating: 6800 RU<BR>Weaponry:<BR>- 16 heavy Quad DIP Batteries (4 fore, 4 rear, 8 broadside)<BR>- 20 Point defense cannons<P>Like allways you can get this baby from your local <A HREF="http://www.bluephantom.de" TARGET=_blank>X-Wing HQ</A><P>Got screens? Sure thing!<P> Image <BR> Image <BR> Image <BR> Image <BR> Image <BR> Image <BR> Image

I love the engine banks on it. Oval engines always look good for some reason. <P>So the ESS is semi-canon now? Hmm. That means I can argue that the Corellian Empire exists too :p

Lol, casually looking at the screenshots, who'd notice. Especially if they didn't know any better.<P>I think it looks great. Have yet to install it just yet.
