Hi, i a came to share my bit.
I, like many here, have read the Honor Harrington book series. That series marked me deeply. I love it! That's why i wrote my guide for construct ships.
First, i changed de basic data and renamed the type of ships to
Type 3: Destroyers (DD) - Missile Cruisers (MC)
The Type 3 ships are the long hand of the Battlefleet. This missile centered ships are based on the pod heavy ships of the Honorverse books series. Starts from Lvl 5 Size like all other units of Battlefleet. This ship is a large size unit that have to travel long distances, with minimum speed and heavy firepower. There are only 5 Missile Cruisers per Battlefleet. They should use solely Type II Missile (small but powerful enough missiles). With a 8-10 missile launchers a Battlefleet will have a 40 missile volley per every 4 seconds. Needs to travel at least 6 sectors at the best available hyperspeed, cruisespeed of +20. The only other elements of defense should be 2PD, 2 ion defenses.
T3 MC size: 650-1500. Firepower Heavy.
Type 4: Cruisers (C) - Battlecruisers (BC)
The Type 4 ships are the strong core of the Battlefleet. This ships are the raiders of the Battlefleet. Starts from Lvl 5 Size like all other units of Battlefleet. This ships is a large size unit that have to travel long distances, with fast cruisespeed and heavy firepower. They are powerful in the offensive but not so strong in the defense. There are 10 Battlecruisers per Battlefleet. Needs to travel at least 6 sectors, the best available hyperspeed, cruisespeed of +30.
They should have 6-8blasters, 4 torp, 5-14Lrail, 2-8Hrail, 2PD, 2idf. The Type 4 ship model is the Battlecruiser (BC), Fast and Strong Raiders.
T4 BC size: 650-1100. Firepower Heavy.
I have done this to all desings, clearly stating the tactical role and the strategic use. Type 3, 4, 5 & CVN form the battlefleet. Type 1 are system defense squadron units (up to 10 per SDS) and the Type 2 are Rapid Response Fleet units (up to 15 per RRF)
