Hi. May I ask about Heuhen´s Kruz cruiser (a big, gun and missile armed vessel)? I can remember that I saw it in the chat (Discord), but I am unable to retrieve it for my archives.

I'm glad that Garlicdesign won this, it's a proper gun cruiser and how it should look like, not on of those overboard or overkill design, or even those that are ...interesting

I do wonder how my rediciluse Kruze class Heavy cruiser would have done in this challenge, if I had reposted it instead of drawing something... different.


comments on my design, is quit spot on:
Quote:
A nice and unique entry, what we'd expect from heuhen :) Great shading and detailing, though using some older helicopters that look out of place next to such a nice ship ;)
Quote:
Very much a modernised Gotland for the helicopter era, a welcome novel concept for this challenge. This is a chunky ship, having a hull hangar for helicopters dictates this, but the armament and sensors look good and are well arranged. Very well drawn too.
Quote:
More akin to a training cruiser than a true warship, the design seems overly bulky and clunky if well armed.
Quote:
From drawing aspect its a good one but from design aspect,this gonna be a incredibly cramped and overload ship.
Quote:
Too much of everything going on without thinking about the practicality.
Quote:
I'm not fazed by the ship's design at all, I love this MechaGotland, but the electronic fit baffles me, so many radars! Nevertheless a very well executed drawing and a lovely looking ship. Very tempted to draw something similar or outright snip this one for own purposes :3
Short answer: all that are being said above, explain what I exactly went for. Unique, bulky, clunky, cramped and overloaded. so basically I had success with seeing what you people are writing. :D

Basically I thinked about every ridiculous thing I could do and I went with it and to say it this way, I could make it even more... "unique".

Long answer:
I went for the unique, as I always do... for the helicopters, I didn't have any alternative lying around at the moment.
I used Gotland as an inspiration, and just supersized it. I wanted it to be a overkill, a cramped ship designed to more roles that you would normally give a ship like this, it have to be a gun (AA) cruiser, give artillery cruiser, be an escort, land troops, scout, rescue troops, part of an submarine hunter squadron and more. thuse the "MASSIVE OVERLOAD" of everything, in fact she is a little light on the electronic equipment, for example: one 57mm gun and two 40 mm gun have to share 1 director (the 57mm director have it's own small director), and when we talk about radar, since this ship is poth a gun-cruiser and helicopter carrier, I got my "radar-inspiration" from other gun cruiser and aircraft-carriers and just smashed it all together.
