Ares Aerospace is proud to announce the launch of our newest and fastest ship to date! The TSS DDC-1 El’Druin, our first Lancea class fast corvette!
The Lancea fills the role of a fast recon corvette. This design makes extensive use of lightweight carbon-composite materials with only a few layers of armor around mission critical crew stations. The lightweight space frame is affixed to a single massive mono-thruster system originally prototyped as a engine subassembly intended for use in an upcoming capital ship project, and this massive engine is in turn boosted by a full overdrive system.
The DDC-1 El'Druin also packs a punch for it's size with a four point grid of Mk 426 Ultra Light Particle Beam Turrets (142 Beam, 142 Beam, 142 Punch), and a pair of coaxially mounted spinal weapons including a Mk 3000 Light Shield Disruptor (1000 Beam, 1000 Beam, 1000 ion) and a Mk 2250 Particle Lance (750 Beam, 750 Beam, 750 Exp).
Secondary batteries consist of a triple tube Mk 300 VLAFM System (Vertical Launch Anti-Fighter Missile, 360 Missile, 180 Beam, 360 Punch, 3 Outputs).
Finally, a rugged anti-missile grid consisting of eight 3rd gen Mk 4 Dual Phalanx Turrets, and four Mk 2 Low Profile Phalanx Turrets covering the rear and flanks of the main engines. Even under heavy missile bombardment, this system should give a reconnaissance mission enough cover to retreat and report. Or at least report by coms.
Despite the ships risky mission and long term deployments, we've had no shortage of volunteers to crew Lancea Corvettes. Out of our entire fleet, the accommodations for the 7 members crew are the most spacious and comfortable. If also the least protected...

I freaking love this ship, easily my most fun design to date. While it may not have particularly great defensive stats, the 2.3 T/M R makes this ship a blast to fly , and you got some big guns to fire as a pilot. Plus out of all my ships, I'd say this one has the best exterior detailing to date.
The El'Druin was intended as a cool exploration/personal transport ship for going off and exploring, or visiting other players homes bases, with enough fire power and speed to deal with mob pirates and possibly discourage anyone else from shooting at me too much
