For the Space Challenge! I’m a ways out of my comfort zone, trying to make a ship for looks instead of realism, so let’s get right into it!
The Natalia Poklonskaya is the flagship of Russia’s Solar Interior Fleet. Designed by the Russian Federation’s leading military engineers, she is the only ship of her line. While the backbone of the Interior Fleet is composed of battlecruisers and carriers, the Natalia Poklonskaya’s lattice armor, cohesive communications systems, and heavy armament make it an integral component of the Interior Fleet’s combat structure. On its own, the Natalia Poklonskaya is quite a force to be reckoned with.
Unlike the other spacefaring nations of the world, who view each of their gleaming spaceships as a marketable icon, the Russian Navy prides their vessels on pragmatic utility. The Natalia Poklonskaya is a perfect example of this, sporting a jagged, unergonomic hull design, and a grey color scheme reminiscent of a Earth-bound destroyer. On the ship’s bow is an enhanced sensor array; the raised bridge is located farther aft.
