Full Thrust Kra'Vak new-sculpt Ships Stats and Gallery



This is a follow-up to last year's Kra'Vak-related posts:

Today we consolidate the suggested stats (including  few variants) and add fluff and images for all the newer ships painted since then.  Still some to do, which I'll add to here eventually.  But first, a word from UNDIA Central:

The widespread appearance of the so-called "Second Wave" Kra'Vak ship designs since shortly after the Siege of Sol began presents a number of concerns for the Combined Defense Command.  These vessels were originally believed to be reinforcements arriving from distant Kra'Vak holdings, representing previously uninvolved War Families and Clans joining the struggle.  However, close examination of wreckage suggests a more ominous explanation.  Study of power core flux signatures and hull micro-fracturing suggests that many of these vessels have been in active service for less than two years, a finding collaborated by the apparent inclusion of many design features that appear specifically aimed at countering human tactics and weaponry.  This would mean that these new ships are not only wartime construction on a staggering scale, but also that (owing to FTL transit times involved) they're being built somewhere much closer to human space than previously believed possible.

While this new data is deeply worrisome, there may be a silver lining to these new clouds of war.  Given the impossibility that these ships (new or otherwise) are coming from shipyards far beyond our frontiers, it seems that the Kra'Vak must have invested significant efforts into establishing fleet construction, repair, and logistics centers very near or even within our claimed volume of space.  It is even possible that their home systems are far closer to human space than previously thought.   Either way, it means the Kra'Vak have major strategic assets located somewhere well within striking distance of a counter-offensive from Outrim forces.  Destruction or seizure of these assets might well be the key to breaking the Siege and freeing up the Core fleets for offensive operations again.

The suggested stats below follow the rules from Fleet Book 2 with the addition of the 3-row hull rules from here:

I've generally bumped up thrust ratings on the slower ships compared to older designs, since experience tells me low-thrust Kra'Vak ships are extremely hard to fly.  All the new ships also use 3-row hulls, which won't actually make them harder to kill but will keep more of their weapons and drive capability operational as they take damage.  They pay a lot (compared to human tech) for both guns and maneuverability, so keeping them active longer seems worth the trade off of even higher overall cost.  I've also pulled back a bit on the sheer number of scatterguns on some ships, and generally reduced the number K1 turrets across the fleet, using the mass saved for more thrust and hull boxes.

KODIAK-class Dreadnought / Mega-Battleship

 
This brute of a mini uses the same components as the smaller KLAXON except for the four main guns, which are the bigger ones shared by the battleship and superdreadnought figures.

This model uses the same components as the larger KODIAK except for the main guns, which are the "small capital ship" size ones mounted on the battlecruisers.  Small is relative, of course, they're still quite large.
