The Dawn's Beacon is a medium sized battle carrier designed to quickly and safely transport fleets of starfighters, bombers, and dropships to conflict zones. After deploying forces it can linger in the battle area and engage other large scale vessels such as capital ships and destroyers. Advanced propulsion systems allow for extremely high maneuverability as well as respectable speed. Advanced energy shielding is used throughout and an experimental kinetic energy recovery system has been integrated that absorbs energy from impacts and converts into usable energy. Twin H-PAP BC 44821-54 (High-powered antimatter particle beam cannons) are the primary weapon used on the ship. An array of smaller weapons including nuclear torpedos and high-power laser CIWS units are stationed at various points allong the hull.
Based on Grand Admiral Thawn's USS IWO JIMA. My first microscale ship. Somewhat of a WIP; I'd like to lengthen the fore section of the hull and modify the greebling a bit to make for more functional appearances. Perhaps a suited to the Dawn Forge?
