The ICA Traflagar is the primary flagship of the Imperial Central Authority in my book I'm working on, the primary enemies of the Arcadian Republic.
Currently it is the command ship of Army Group South as the empire attempts to wipe out the Republic ally of Elysium (a paladin-descended nation). The story is set in a mix of World War 2 mixed with high fantasy (so magic co-exists with tanks and battleships, but no lasers or robots!).
Ship design based heavily off the famous 'Yamato' battleship, though uses a very unique skeletal frame design to make the ship lighter than she looks and thus more capable of airborne flight. The ship is armed with 3 'quad' 18-inch turrets, rivaling the firepower of almost all but the Republic's heaviest ships of the line.
In this drawing, the Traflagar is fighting off an allied airstrike before she can join her accompanying fleet, the intent of the plan to prevent or at least slow the arrival of such a heavily armed warship in an upcoming battle.
But just curious: is the spelling deviation from "Trafalgar" intentional or is this a misspelling?
And thanks for enjoying it! I know a lot of people follow me for my 'pony' headcannon, so it's nice someone likes my alternate WW2/LOTR world!
Being this is not in space, the reason is because torpedoes, rockets, and bombs deviate significantly when attacking from below (as opposed to attacking from above where gravity won't pull the weapon off course too much or stall out from such a steep climb).
Lionel23, is there a full sized download of this masterpiece, may I ask?
Really appreciate the comment, look forward to me adding some more, have a few more to upload but the artists working on them have to make the last finishing touches... ^^
