This is my first ever original Space ship project. I am building my force which will be called the Strix Strummer Navy. The Rika class cruiser is a formidable ship to be reckoned with. Although it is still under construction, I have a drawing as a blueprint for it's design, which may be tweaked. This is only the beginning of a new era.

Very nice, it’s coming along nicely. The design itself gives off an early human space exploration and warfare capabilities. It’s could use a bit of details around the exterior. If you could give it specs how would they be laid out? Dimensions, armor, armament, maneuverability, etc. Could it go up against my UN - X01 Stellar cruiser or my new UN-SC2 ( not revieled yet)....Like you said before you started your ship.

It will probably destroy the X01 cruiser from afar. With the anti-ship weapon on the Rika, the D-7 Heavy Cannon can puncture the X01's bridge. Also the Rika holds a large number of warheads and missile bays, large and small to get past your cannon defense and land a direct hit on the ship's thruster engines. However if the X01 approaches fast and fires it's broadside cannons or attacks the Rika from behind, the Rika will take some damage. But that will be hard since the Rika has independent wing thrusters so that it can turn and shoot ahead together with the 6 cannons on the wings, the D-7 cannon, two C-11 med turrets, and 4 Side turrets at the same time. The Rika is 338 meters long while the X01 is only 249 meters, so that means the Rika is bigger and can carry more weapons for upgrades.

In a direct confrontation, you would be right. Yet, it’s a very fast a maneuverable ship. Meant exactly for broad side. That’ why its side armor is 5 meters thick, its top is also very heavily armored between 3-5 meters all around. I see you as a heavier design. More of a brawler. I would need a ship that fits that category to be even. I have one…haven’t posted it yet. It’s a little over the top though....Yes it would fit better with you ship..I'm not going to throw my AC, that's too much..

I admire the fact that you created this from scratch. I usually mess my projects up halfway through if it's something original

I like this build a lot.

The only "criticism" I would give is that it looks a little TOO square-ish in the back, especially from the bird's eye view, but thats just my opinion :D

Well it's not complete, plus I haven't updated the birds eye picture. I've still got to build several sections behind the back you see now, so that isn't the true rear. I will add more details and structural design also to make it not seem plain.

Holy crap this is badass! My only advise to you is to make the rear of the ship a little more "rounded" so it looks more natural. Great build!
