Titan - Nuclear submarine - V5.2 - Director's cut . This is my Titan - V5.2 full tour! Thanks to all who made it a MOCie Award 2011 AND a MOTD!!! =) . This heavily armoured and stealth submarine is equipped with 2 torpedo tubes and 16 nuclear missile silos. This next generation sub can dive during years, depending on crew's mood...
Its profiled hull, propellers and powerful engine allow high speeds(up to 77Km/h underwater).
It was first designed on Lego Digital Designer. Compared to my 4.1 version, the hull now mesures around 148,5 centimeters, instead of 105 centimeters, for about 21 kgs(almost 8000 parts).
Thanks for watching and telling me what you think of Titan!
For this nice main Pic, I must and want to give some special credit to El Barto's work! Many thanks to you, buddy! ;-)
The access hatche to the torpedo room.
The torpedo room.
Some clamps, mounted on a rail and hydraulic system, help handling torpedos until they are in tubes.
On the left top, one of the two waterproof emergency doors, in the case of a hull breach.
Torpedo tube hatche opened.
The clamp system slides this way.
Close up of the conning tower.
Inside the conning tower, this is the wheelhouse.
Conning tower's roof, with access hatche, periscope, communication antennas and radars.
On the rear of the conning tower, a pressurized sas allow underwater operation.
Here is my cool scuba diver! (Thanks to Cyberfrank2010!)
Through the heavily armoured side windows of the hull, the control room. Because I wanted some strong basis for my conning tower, this is the only part of the sub you can't access directly.
It's also difficult to take proper pics inside this part, so, I've included pictures of the LDD model with all the side hull hidden, in order for you to see properly the control room.
From the left to the right: the crew's quarter, the control room and the torpedo room.
Under this hatche, the Captain's room and the crew's quarter.
Here is the Captain, having some rest.
In his room, a screen and communication systems allow him to give his orders and organize operations of the ship from his room. It can of course play Blurays! ;-)
The Captain's bed.
Under the Captain's chair, a hatch allow going downstairs to the crew's quarter.
The ladder leading to the crew's quarter.
This the crew's quarter.
On the right top, notice the second emergency waterproof door, separating the crew's quarter from the engine room.
On the left, the combined toilets/shower.
On the right, the fully equipped cooking corner, and above, very important for me, a wide screen home cinema, with integrated PC, Bluray player and next gen console! =)
On the left, above the combined toilets/shower, the bunk beds.
Let's close it
It's impossible to tak pics under these transparent parts of the hull, I'll show you later.
These two heavy armoured hatches protect the retractable heavy machine gun and the escape pod.
The turret raise!
The heavy machine gun deploys.
It can adopt a lot of angles.
Under the heavy machine gun turret, the escape pod, in case of critical damage of the ship.
This ejects this way.
The lower hatche allow the crew to come in, the upper one allow to come out the module once at the surface.
The escape pod area.
Two access sas on the sides allow to reach this area from the interior.
Because it's impossible to take pics under the transparent parts of the hull, I've included pictures of the mounting to show arround the escape pod area, with the two access hatches.
16 nuclear heads...
This is the engine room.
In red, the nuclear reactors.
In yellow, the powerful electric engine, linked to the propellers.
Notice you can see the nuclear missiles through their transparent silos, from the interior.
Some close up of the rear, with its dual propeller system.
Couldn't resist to appear with my sea monster!
Hope you've enjoyed your trip with Titan!
