Sia Lianu Corvette by Jepray Sia Lianu Corvette by Jepray
assing out as a super-heavy fighter-bomber or a light corvette, the Sia Lianu is the smallest jump-capable vessel in the Namaran military. It fills dual roles as a ground-attack craft and anti-fighter/fast-attack anti-capital ship vessel, and as a result is similar in use to the deadly Ahrugan Dragan-class assault ships. Despite the awkward appearrance, the Sia Lianu is actually surprisingly agile, with Teek-manufactured gravitic repulsor thrusters placed throughout the vessel.
The Lord Martial- supreme ruler of the Namaran Darchi- has a heavily modified Sia Lianu as her personal transport, showing the reliability of the vessel. While the post-invasion xenophobia instituted by her father is stiill strong in government and military circles, she has wisely opened up trade with the Dunbaren Trade Federation and the Teek in order to acquire higher technology to prevent a third invasion. This dependence on foreign manufacturers to produce vessels like the Sia Lianu does not sit well with the Council of Generals, but they cannot deny the efffectiveness of such technology.

Love it. Like a flying fortress in space. Any fighter would hesitate to dive in against all those turreted guns, and any capital ship would rightly fear that much ordnance. And I can see how one could be converted into a luxurious shuttle (or troop carrier or bulk transport) by removing the ordnance and expanding the fuselage to fill that space between the engines.

It looks like one of thous cool WW2 bombers. I like how the top treats are off set and I think all space ships need a good hood ornament. grate work.

The look and feel of this ship brings to mind the sturdiness and reliability of the world war II bombers.
It's like a Lancaster or a B-17 in space.
Good job :)
