Helios Star Cruiser by MikomDude Helios Star Cruiser by MikomDude

Beginning the Konay Industries line of exotic starships, this is the Helios Star Cruiser.
It has a warp ring for interstellar travel.

In atmosphere: Two KIVV MK8 hybrid air-breathing rocket engines.

In space: KIVV-IO chemical rocket engines and maneuvering thrusters.

Looks quite beautiful but impractical. That fancy loop on the back is just excess weight and there are no RCS nodes in critical places so it wouldn't turn.

The "loop" on the back is the ships warp-ring. It creates a warp bubble around the ship for "FTL"-travel. Here are the RCS thruster positions: media.moddb.com/images/groups/…

Oh, ok, I assumed this was a real-life style design. Well, ftl might be real-life so I take that back

Well it's not really "faster-than-light", the warp drive idea is more of a workaround on current physics models, like the Alcubierre drive proposal.

Konay Industries' line of star cruisers are luxury private sails. They usually have no offensive capabilities.
