My First Frigate/Cruiser
« on: February 04, 2014, 03:23:17 am »
This is my first frigate/cruiser (How do I know which it is?), I intended it to be somewhat of a support ship. It has medical bays,back-up generators,a large barracks, and small docking and repair stations.

I think it's a frigate. Great work!

I'd call it a corvette or a frigate.
it's really up to you what you call it. Most people go off either length or tonnage.

I go roughly off 50-100m = corvette, 100-200 = frigate, 200-300 = destroyer, 300-400= cruiser, ect ect.
Or whatever I feel like calling it at the time.

So... your fighters are 40 meters long?

Some day we'll have one. I dream of a time when we have a unified naming system.

Err, and on topic: Nice ship. Got an interior in it?

I like it, looks a bit like an assault rifle.

If he's German, 40 meter long fighters would be the small classes.
And it has somewhat of an interior, probably not the best but mostly just all the modules and barracks
