Ganba Destroyer by StarSword-C Ganba Destroyer by StarSword-C
H.A.V.O.K. Destroyer, Ganvor-class
Fire Support Vessel, Ganbar Imperial Fleet

The Ganvor-class H.A.V.O.K. Destroyer is a powerhouse light capital ship that excels at search-and-destroy missions due to its high speed and long range. Capable of dancing in and out of enemy gunfire, its craggy hull conceals an array of weapons that is quite impressive for a vessel of its size. Though little match for the larger Galactic capital ships, it makes hash out of pirates and frigates.

It's a smallish vessel at only 635 meters (compared to 4700 for the command cruiser), and was designed without any measure of aesthetics in mind. Like most large Ganba ships it looks like a stick with the engines on the aft end.

My original Ganvor-class destroyer model was based on a clump of LEGOs my brother was using as a gun turret of sorts. After finishing the Krogon-class escort carrier, however, I went back and severely altered it to its current form purely because I thought it was ugly. I raised the height of the command deck and added an additional section to the bow. Then I started on weaponry, since the model is small enough for them to be visible. The Ganvor-class mounts a single fixed neutron beam at the bow, and six mass driver turrets along its flanks and at the stern. (Thanks go to Meaker VI for the components I used.)

Thank you!

I never noticed the similarity to Battlestars before, but you have a point there. Particularly the outriggers amidships.

As for UNSC ships, maybe. I guess it's the cragginess and blockiness.
