Introducing the new Terran Navy NR-1901 ‘Titan’ Class Dreadnought!

The Titan Class Dreadnought was an exciting project for me, since the Razorthorn Battleship was one of my very first designs, and is still one of my favourites; so putting together its imposing bigger sibling is a challenge I gladly accepted. The overall philosophy was to keep the forward angling shape, along with similar lines of symmetry, but to bulk up the hull to give it an imposing girth.

The whole ship borrows heavily from the natural progression of my Terran designs over the course of their upgrades, using the Heavy Cruiser’s subtly curved hull to break up the panels and the three-directional design of the Aegis Shield Cruiser. The Titan is therefore the culmination of the efforts of the Terran engineers responding to the escalating threats of the Storm Zone. As I progressed with the design, it also gave me some great ideas for Razerthorn MK III.
