ESF SUMER-CLASS Frigate Escort / Light Frigate by MisterK91 ESF SUMER-CLASS Frigate Escort / Light Frigate by MisterK91
THANK YOU ALL FOR 1,000 VIEWS!!! :happybounce:

Please welcome the newest member in my family of space warships - the "SUMER-CLASS".
She represents a brand-new design philosophy whose variants will be used by all the other units of the ESF SPACE NAVY. No matter if they are DESTROYERS, CRUISERS or SHUTTLES!

As you may noticed, the "SUMER" is much less detailed than my older ship (e.g. the "AZTECATL-CLASS"). Of course, there is a reason for that: I wanted to give my new vehicles a "Manga/Anime"-like look and so I tried to find the perfect mix between a "detail-simplicity" and "detail-complexity"... or whatever... :D

I hope you all like the "SUMER"! Please let me know your opinions about her! :D

--------------------

UPDATE: a minor refit of the original design, featuring a new "Gravity Centrifuge" and two lateral bulges around the airlocks.

It is a very good Spaceship Drawing. Thanks for Sharing it white us. Keep up the good Work ^^

And now to the Criticise.
I think the Turrets it a little to big for the ship.
It is only a Frindly tip you don´t need to follow him.
Make the turret´s about 50% the size smaller and get from Twin to a Singel barrel Cannon. oh and add some anti Missile flak gun´s. 4 or 5 shoult do it.

thank you very, very much much for your comment!!! :happybounce:

yeah, yor're right. the Linear Cannon Turrets are a little too large for the ship. i tried to reduce the size, but that didn't pleased me (these domed "anime-style" turrets just have to be a little bit too large, i think :D).
and after all... if you look at the battleships during the first and second world war, the main turrets of these were larger than the ones i gave the "SUMER"... thereby the "SUMER" is only five metres shorter than the "KING GEORGE V-class" battleships.

oh... and to the flak gun's... actually the "SUMER" has such cannons and not only 4 or 5 but 60 of them :D. all these little speheres you see on the hull are covers for the ships anti-missile/gunboat defense lasers.

For the Flak gun´s i mean a turret wo has a fast rate of fire as a Secundär main anti- cap ship weapon.
as a Secundär Prime Weapon.

ah, i see! well... the secondary armarment of the "SUMER" are her 36 multi-purpose missile silos located in her bow section. but larger ships (e.g. heavy frigates and destroyers) do have light rapid-fire Linear Cannons as secondary armarment.

Nice. It's just the right amount of detail, and it's a pretty good design, to boot. I can tell what everything is.

Suggestion: Other ships in the class are named after legendary cities - so there's an El Dorado, a Babylon, a Tirnanog and a Xanadu in the class.

Well... one "SUMER" bears the name "Babylon" but the ships of the class aren't named after legendary cities... although that is a wonderful idea! :D

Actually all frigates of the ESF in my universe are called for places, people or just expressions from ancient/ indigenous cultures.
In that special case the "SUMER-Class" Escort Frigates are named after places, people etc. from the ancient country of SUMER.

Thank you very much for your comment! :D

I like it. Your shading gives it an extra touch. It also would fit in quite well in an anime.

This is a fantastic drawing. You did a great job with shading, lighting, and conveyin gthe general shape of the hull. I also enjoy the unique mix of scifi as well as hard scifi incorporated design.

Keep up the great work!
