Bow-class corvette by SplinteredMatt Bow-class corvette by SplinteredMatt
The Bow-class corvette was a class of ships used by the UNSC in the years following the Human-Covenant war. At only 231 metres in length, the Bow-class was nonetheless heavily armed for its tonnage, and boasted speed and acceleration surpassing that of even the Remembrance-class frigate, making it substantially more effective than its diminutive size suggested.

Fast agile and well armed..... That's three things that keep the people on the other side of the battle lines up at night.

I love the profile, it is well within the general style of the game ships but is fairly unique and distinctive.

Thanks for the praise of the drawing- the nicely thought-out design of course being credited to Isaac Hannaford :)

Any chance for a Valiant class Super-Heavy Cruiser.

Probably not, only because of the lack of reference material on it. I may do its successor though, which will be a battleship, which is basically what a 'super-heavy cruiser' is. Awful ridiculous classification, so annoying it's canon! ;)

But it was the most powerful warships ever made.

That's debatable, and doesn't change the lack of material, or the silly classification.

That's true. But a super-heavy cruiser is just a battleship.
