Halo UNSC ships by SplinteredMatt Halo UNSC ships by SplinteredMatt
UNSC ships drawn by me, to scale. Download for larger image!

Shown are the Gladiator-class light cruiser, Warrior-class destroyer, Hesperus-class prowler, Remembrance-class frigate, Daring-class frigate, Vanguard-class destroyer, Bow-class corvette.

These are designs for the UNSC Navy post Human-Covenant war, with significantly improved weaponry, armour, sensors, electronics, faster-than-light drives and practically everything else.

Some of these ships are designed from scratch by myself (The Gladiator-class cruiser for example, though with significant influence by ~PaintFan08's UNSC destroyer).

Some, like the Remembrance-class frigate and Bow-class corvette, are simply direct redraws of Bungie concept art.

The others, the Daring-class frigate and the two destroyers, are a mixture of Bungie parts from the concept art, and my own design.

Ships drawn in Inkscape. Do not use this image without permission! I mean it. It's ridiculous how many times I've found this (clearly copyrighted) work reproduced without permission online.

You should have called this: the "splintered" battle group. Why? Because your username is "splintered"matt.

all these ships are really cool!

But my favourite is the Daring class frigate. :)

By chance is there a pelican image I could use. I am making animations, for free, and it would be perfect if there was a pelican.

I have plans to make one at some point, but there isn't currently. I also generally don't give others permission to use my work.

Would you mind if I were to use these in a cross-over I'm writing? You'll get full credit when it's over and done with.

I`d actually like to see your take on the Trafalgar-Class Battlecarrier, 6 were made, the Trafalgar, the Corinth, The Stalingrad, The Waterloo, The Centurion, and The Midway, 5 were destroyed in the Battle of Reach, only 1, the Stalingrad, escaped. These ships were the flag ships of the UNSC fleet, and they were awesome.

I can't find any official source for your information; perhaps you've accidentally quoted some fan-made material. The Stalingrad was a regular UNSC carrier and was destroyed at Onyx in 2552.

If you put the Infinity on there it would be the from side of screen to other side and only show half of it at one time. booyah. 6k long... size does matter

Do you have any other views of these ships? The profile is the most interesting but it doesn't say much about a ships actual shape. I'd be most interested on your take of the Prowler.

:iconsplinteredmatt:
SplinteredMatt Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Student General Artist
Absolutely true, the profile says nothing about the ships' shapes. That's the problem- on creating a profile that looks good, it's more or less impossible to then draw a top view that also looks good, and makes sense, and also matches the profile view. Rest assured though, it's the ultimate goal, and in the works (even if it is frustratingly slow work). Thanks also for the feedback and constructive criticism.

Awesome... love the design of these ships. I'd like to see how you'd do some Sentinel/Forerunner battleships :D

Glad you like them. I'm going to guess my Forerunner stuff would be terrible- I've never tried it, with all those intricate details, angles and geometry. Who knows, maybe one day!

I draw Sentinels, and the angles and foreshortening and everything on them is an absolute nightmare... I can only imagine drawing their ships would be ten times worse :O

nice overall design
only thing i see bad is if the mane gun is what i think it is on the warrior class and the remembrance class thy wont work
pleas tell me the bow is not a rail gun

:iconsplinteredmatt:
SplinteredMatt Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012  Student General Artist
Thanks for the feedback!

I can see why it sort of looks like a rail gun; but it's actually two guns. The upper and lower prows both hold MAC guns, which are a type of coilgun used by the UNSC.

that is good if it was a rail gun it wood rip the ship in half if it fired

Now they just need to be in a game where they're not just window dressing. A space-battle RTS.

That would be amazing, but it's never going to happen, at least not officially. There are a number of decent Halo mods though- google 'Halo Homefront'!

Those space ships...have a lot of weak spots.
