23rd Heavy Support Group by strangelet 23rd Heavy Support Group by strangelet
the vanir dreadnoughts employed as the core of the 23rd Heavy Support Group provide a mobile artilliery base rivalled only by some of the more powerful planetary defence batteries. basically a huge gun platform with engines, the Vanir class has long been renowned for its awesome forward firepower, the massive ion arrays able to slice much larger ships into pieces in short order.

the 23rd HSG have been at the forefront of the AISN/USN conflict for several tours, participating in such conclusive conflicts as the battle of Ash Head, the Storch rim offensive and the much retold battle of Aster Bleak to name but a few.

other units of note employing the vanir (albeit not in such numbers at the specialist 23rd) include the 12th, 34th and 36th task forces, currently reserved, and of course the legendary 53rd fleet, currently in active service rimward of Elgin Banks.

This is utterly amazing, as is all your work, I am following the AFF universe closely. I'd hate to be wherever those beams and torpedoes are ending up.

You have some massive skill with 3d imagery, both the models and their materialing is spot on. The persepective is also executed very effectively, love all the plot and story you tied in, very cool idea. Awesome work.

PS. A border might be kind of nice- if you're into that sort of thing.
