Daring-class frigate by SplinteredMatt Daring-class frigate by SplinteredMatt
The Daring-class frigate was a class of light frigates utilised by the United Nations Space Command, which served between 2627 and 2678, seeing major action during the Galactic War and Swarm War. In contrast to the highly multi-role Remembrance-class frigate, the Daring-class was a specialised warship utilised to provide a set of highly specific functions to a battle group, including reconnaissance, electronic intelligence and surveillance, electronic support including command, control and communications, and anti-prowler/anti-stealth warfare. These functions made it highly valuable when deployed as part of a battle group, as it was able to actively supplement the systems and capabilities of other battle group components; however this also meant its ability in combat without such support was restricted. In particular the Daring-class frigate's starfighter complement and armament were restricted due to its substantial complement of sensor and communication equipment.

While the Daring-class had a limited combat ability when deployed without a battle group, it routinely performed non-combat operations, such as electronic intelligence gathering and reconnaissance, independently of the unit it was part of. Vessels of the class featured enhanced stealth features and countermeasures, in addition to strong shielding and frigate-typical high velocity, in order to increase effectiveness and survivability. A major role of the Daring-class was to covertly insert Orbital Drop Shock Troopers to a target using SOEIV pods, often in preparation for a full scale assault by UNSC forces.

Wow, nice ship.

So you're hands are full at this time?

If so then I'll wait. I'm the patient type.

If you're not then can I ask you if you can do a request for me. Nothing big, just a small capital ship.

Yes, I have a bunch of other fictional classes I haven't created images for. Real life has been very busy for a while and I haven't had as much time as before.

Ah, okay. And hey, I understand, life's life and gets in the way a bunch. Hopefully you get some more free time to make them or whatever.

Good work, looks very cool. I would suggest adding additional row of thrusters through. Because currently the thrusters don't "Seems" to be able to produce enough power to propel ship of this size.

You currently have 2 rows of thrusters, I'm not sure it's single engine or 2~3 thrusters packed together, I suggest adding a third row. That would seems to have enough propulsion to keep the ship fast and agile.

But it's only my opinion, it still looks great.

Glad you like it :)

I'd never actually looked at it that way, but now that you mention it, the thrusters do seem a bit small in relation to the rest of the ship. Maybe I'll change that next time I do an update, or perhaps I'll cheat and say there are two more larger thrusters out of view behind the smaller ones ;)

Thanks for the comment and suggestion, I do appreciate it!

Would you be interested in giving me permission for a 3d model of the Daring.But could you supply a top image for me so I could have a better idea of the design.

:iconsplinteredmatt:
SplinteredMatt Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Student General Artist
Unfortunately I don't have any plans to create a top image in the near future, because the design would need to be altered considerably. Also, if I did have a side and a top drawing and wanted a 3D model to be made from that, I'd probably give it a go myself :)

So, I appreciate the offer, but can't accept.

Indeed it is a shame. But unfortunately, it wasn't drawn with eventual 3D modelling in mind, so it would have to be altered quite a bit.

I've done basic 3D modelling in the past and I definitely suck :)
