Awesome work man! She's gorgeous.

Perhaps the Serkas will be re-purposed as a point defence ship to defend against Federation fighters?

This is interesting. We get the old Romulan artillery ship back. What's going to happen to the Serkas?

Excellent job on breathing new life into an old favorite—the Romulan Raptor. The hull plating looks superb.

For armament may I suggest 3 of those Serka's artillery torpedoes, 8 plasma torpedoe launchers, 12 phasers and 12 disruptors.

That is one badass bird! Awesome to see her back!

I always wondered where the raptors' torp launcher actually is situated. Is it the dot on the back behind the head? Nice to see that ship again :).

And all firing at once to preserve balance.

Yup! The original concept art seemed to indicate that the torpedo launcher was above the head. :thumbsup:

I've always been bothered by models that fire torpedoes but have no visible launchers or tubes. You only need look at KA2s models for that! :P

I always thought the torpedo tube on the Raptor was a ventral tube that ran directly underneath the ships spine, as if the ship were designed around the weapon (since it fired tri-cobalts, which aren't exactly lenient on the space frame when fired)

No , this dino must lauch the torpidos using the vental tubs, in front or on back and must be selfprotected by several short range weapons.

I know this might seem a bit crazy, I have been reading these old posts for some time now and before NX was announced it seems like a lot of the team had finished a lot of assets and programming.

I'm also a massive fan of Tryptics work at rebalancing and introducing new features to F.O since the devs are absent and working on NX.

Would it be crazy to add Tryptic to the Dev team to solely focus on maintaining F.O ? Giving him access to these files that never saw public use would be a great idea, I think he has proven he is more than capable of handling assets really well. It's just such a shame we have finished models that will never see the light of day in this incarnation of Fleetops. At least this idea I have will hold us over until NX is launched...

For better overview, please don't resurrect 8 year old threads. If you like to discuss a new topic, better open a new one next time.

We had our reasons why we shut down the Armada 2 version which i hope we have explained sufficiently in the past. We have decided to not put further resources towards A2. That also means adding someone to the team with the goal to continue working on Armada 2 is not something we will do.
