SSV Iwo Jima

SSV Iwo Jima

By Carmen

This is a replica of Normandy-class Alliance frigate from the Mass Effect Universe – albeit simplified to fit a voxel-based game engine.

Named after the Battle of Iwo Jima, the SR5 is optimized for low atmospheric and terrestrial strike operations against maritime targets. Unlike other Normandy-class vessels, SR5 is designed for wartime production and lacks a great many creature comforts associated with previous vessels.

She is armed with 2 GARDIAN laser turrets and a pair of heavy attack missiles for use against maritime targets and fortifications.

Additional Background:

The Systems Alliance Space Vehicle Iwo Jima is based on the successful Normandy class deep reconnaissance frigate, with notable design simplification in order to facilitate wartime production.

Completed mere weeks before the Reaper Invasion, it is not known if the SR-5 prototype survived the Battle of Earth.

The Iwo Jima follows the same Human-Turian hybrid design with a drastic reduction in structural and systems complexity to minimize production costs. Intended as a point scout and fast attack unit, the SR-5 lacks many of the creature comforts syonymous with the Normandy-class in order to facilitate maximum offensive capability. In addition, large parts of the hull and structure are manufactured with unusual non-strategic composites such as wood-alloy panels.

At the time of the Invasion, SR-5 was assigned to the Alliance Navy spaceport at Connecticut, performing atmospheric flight trials with an experimental compound-turboencabulator fossil fuel engine in lieu of a conventional Element Zero drive core. It is unlikely the vessel could have achieved Earth orbit without mass effect generation capability

  • Add an air pump controller! July 21, 2017
    I have a submarine that I made and I made it so it is neutrally buoyant. So it pretty much allows me to manoeuvre it around with the dive planes and rudder. I want the sub to only be manual control. So no AI. But I need an air pump controller, so if I want […]
  • Shell speed not consistent with the wiki formula July 21, 2017
    I've been trying to write a program to optimise Flak CIWS shells given a lowest acceptable speed, autoloader size and desired damage (probably 100). In the process I've got a class with methods for working out shell speed, reload and cooldown times based on the gauge, d, the number of gunpowder casings, n_GP, the number […]
  • Question/problem with obstructed view in build mode July 21, 2017
    Love this game... been on the alpha for a while and spent ridiculous hours in the sandbox mode mostly. I like having the two build modes and use the keyboard mode for building and camera mode for inspecting, but the issue I'm having is with the camera mode and how there's always a selected block […]
  • How do I make a plane? July 21, 2017
    Hello Ive made several ships and tanks before, but i've never made a plane. I've tried once, but it was a disaster. I don't really know where to start, can anyone help?
  • [SS] Thyr - Lowering broadside minimum range (and some other minor changes) July 21, 2017
    So after hearing that the Thyr likes running away, which is not a very desirable trait for a ship with only forwards-facing main guns, I went ahead and re-configured the ship's broadside settings in an attempt to keep her from exposing the vulnerable aft so often. In addition to that, I did the following while […]
  • not sure how to make a "Object avoidance" system with ACB's July 20, 2017
    I can not figure out how to create a object avoidance system so my hover ships do not hit each other or a enemy building, like how planes will avoid each other in the air by veering right.
  • Missiles too weak now? July 20, 2017
    So HE is already useless against armor. But they were made viable for torpedoes due to underwater effect. Thumper is pretty useless, literal surface impact damage. Missiles aren't that fast or has a lot of mass. Before, frag was decent against armor to a degree. Now it is useless. Only thing left for missiles is […]
