The only issue is that on its own... its not a complete ship. Its a great base to start with but starting doesn't make a great ship.
Captain Seafort wrote:I doubt it. Her total volume must be less than half that of a Tarawa, if that, and she's about half engine. Plus the design doesn't maximise internal volume the way proper assault ships do. I doubt she'd be able to carry more than a couple of companies with kit. Even an assault-rigged Strike cruiser can only carry a battalion.
Captain Seafort wrote:I disagree. The basic frame is robust enough to accept a dozen different variants, and she's got the power to make a decent gunship, in the same way that a Toyota pickup is robust enough and powerful enough to accept a truly insane range of weapons. That's what makes the corvette great - just load 'em up and off you go.
Deepcrush wrote:But as I said, that means its a great start but still not a completion.
We will have to agree to disagree then.
Captain Seafort wrote:That, I would say, merely means that it's not a great gunship, or carrier, or troopship. It's still a great ship, in the same way that the factory-standard Toyota is a great vehicle despite not being a great fighting vehicle.

Deepcrush wrote:The factory standard Toyota pickup is great because it does exactly what it needs to do out of the factory. No after market refits are required. I can go, get the truck and roll out to a field or to a job site or pick up and deliver persons right away.
