These have super thin armor.  A single strength 16 missile hit, or strength 4 laser hit could kill them.  All it takes is one bad dice roll and bam, you've got a magazine explosion and ~10,000bp down the drain.

Missile choices are odd too; why two different size 10 launcher types?

I LOVE the spinal laser though.

Those "Cell launchers" are box sized. So Mod3 has first strike capability of 1x30 RSM-26 Halberd ASM, then 1x6 RSM-26 Halberd ASM after 50s, all at 120m km range. After that there are two groups 3x2 of twice as fast Surya-VI CAM at 12m km because now also the other FCs can help .

And yes, it is quite a glass cannon.

Detros nailed it; I usually build my designs with a mix of standard size and box launchers, so I can throw out one overwhelming salvo at the outset of an engagement but still have some missile capacity in reserve as I close the range. And the Wardens were fast enough to close the range on just about anything I ran into. (Looking at the original design, though, I'm not sure why it only has CAMs and no standard ASMs, although the refits all have a stock of Harpoons/Halberds. Hm.)

You're both absolutely right, though... it is a glass cannon, which was a semi-intentional design choice. The hope was that the CIWS and heavy AMM battery would protect them from missile fire, while the speed would keep other heavy beam-armed combatants from getting close enough to be a problem... and if anything DID get close enough, they'd have to deal with that lovely spinal laser and a wave or two of CAMs/LAMs. I never lost a Warden in combat, but I did have one get pretty chewed up by AMM spam once. In hindsight, though, they may not have fared as well against a large NPR fleet or certain spoilers. I don't think I quite realized just how little it would take to blast through that armor, as Barkhorn pointed out. Although I haven't used formations yet in any of my games, this is probably a design that would have benefited from them.

In-game, the Warden was also intended as the precursor for 'true' battlecruiser designs like the ship below:

The Rheinlands were still lightly armored for their size, in keeping with the battlecruiser concept(my contemporary DNs/SDs in that game usually had an armor belt of two or three times the size of the Rheinland's), but it was far less pronounced than with the Wardens - and far less likely that a golden-BB strike would send all those BP up in smoke.

Hmm your 40kt Rhineland BC was the same armour as my corvettes. Not sure which one of us is gooding here but it's interesting. For me that ship would have 24-30 armour layers. Probably 2 or 3 twin 400mm laser turrets a few single laser turrets maybe 150mm or 200mm secondaries and some AA and a bank of size 10 or 15 missile launchers. Im also 100 years in so my armour is lighter etc.

Here's the closest thing to a Star Trek Federation starship I've built. Diverse sensors that include geo and grav, a long term mission range, and the ability to defend itself. It's a bit slow for my liking, but I think it's an upgrade over the rather toothless and somewhat blind science ships it's replacing. If I stumble across another NPR, they're probably going to hate it's size, but losing three of the Yuri Gagarin class to the non-negotiators was enough! No more exploration ships going down without at least a fight.

I'm not sure about the numbers off the top of my head, but it may be worth looking at swapping out that jump drive for a commercial one. If you intend this to be a solitary exploration vessel, then the commercial drive could save you some tonnage and in turn gain some speed.

I looked into that. Iirc, the commercial jump drive is cheaper, but not smaller; space is the thing I wanted to conserve in an otherwise military design, so no commercial jump engine.

Just checked to make sure. My size-34, 20,000t military jump engines take 34 HS, but a size-5, 22,500t commercial jump engine requires 50 HS.

Yes, in short: commercial jump engines are 10 times bigger than declared.

New game after the last attempt at this theme where someone somewhere found a way to weaponize the quantum anomaly known as "Divide by Zero Error" and was destroying the universe one Annihilation Event at a time. Anyways, gave myself 500k RP to start and let the game generate technology for me and this is what I came up with.

Missile to hit chances are vs targets moving at 3000 km/s, 5000 km/s and 10,000 km/s

Kind of messed up at the end as I set out to fit around 40k tons, but 37.5k actually turned out to be a better number for the math I figured for this theme, and I ended up filling almost all of the tonnage when I realized I forgot to add shields. Then I had to strip a few hundred tons of fuel storage, then I shaved a little off my engineering spaces, and I had to remove my secondary battle bridge, but my shields are still not quite to the point I want them but where they are will have to do. And one annoying thing is that my missile launchers are 99 tons... really irritating to see the 'equal' tonnage of magazines and launchers be 3600 tons and 3564 tons respective. The one real upside to those launchers is they only need 1 crew each.
Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.

After a decade with the only real warship of the Empire being the Warhorse, a successful design that has seen combat in almost a dozen occasions against 3 different races, new technology has advanced just enough to the point where a second generation of Warships. However, technology has yet to advance that far into engines and sensors/fire control as these subjects seem to cause the greatest problems to any aspiring scientists in the empire (despite 10 levels of military academies over the course of around 4 decades, I only have 3 PP and 2 S/FC scientists all with low ratings). Technology into the development of missile related technology also has not advanced far enough to the point where an overhaul on the missiles, launchers, or magazines. Using the information gathered from the many battles fought, we have learned that our only weakness so far is the lack of capability in fighting inside of nebulas. Scientists have quickly advanced in the fields of energy weaponry to give us that capability. We also needed a cheaper alternative for orbital defense than stationing a Cruiser class vessel over a conquered world, so advisers came up with 2 smaller ships and 1 defense station.

Essentially an upgrade of the Warhorse class. This design adds new energy weaponry, 2 additional engines, increased shield defenses, and a electronic warfare suite. The downsides compared to the new Warhorse II is the reduced cruising range, larger cross-section, and increased cost despite the similar survivability.

Designed to be the core of the fleet. Built to be the spearhead of an assault, to take the punishment of dozens to hundreds of missiles and continue to close range. It has basic missile complements equaling smaller classes, yet its true strength lies in its closer ranged weaponry of massed railgun fire and heavy plasma cannons.

I've been playing a USA themed game for about a week now. These ships were designed after a rapid military research program prompted by the destruction of a peaceful survey ship in the Epsilon Eridani system in 2037. For roleplay reasons, I had not researched any military technology until the survey ship was destroyed, so they are pretty low end ships.

The Portland class provides both point defence capabilities, as well as short ranged firepower. This is technically the Mark 2 version, to which all existing ships were upgraded early on in the fleet buildup. Fourteen of these ships were built.

The Theodore Roosevelt class is the Navy's only military jump ship. It is armed with a large number of railguns to defend itself. Three of these ships were built.

These designs were tested in the Battle of Epsilon Eridani, where a Navy fleet of six heavy cruisers, eleven destroyers, and three jump cruisers engaged four 15,700 ton alien cruisers and one 23,550 ton alien battleship. Enemy ECM systems reduced the fleet's missile range to forty million kilometers, and two of the alien cruisers fired over fifty salvos of 56 anti-missiles each from about sixty million kilometers distance before fleeing to reload, which the fleet was able to weather with only minor internal damage. The remaining ships appeared to be armed solely with close-ranged weapons and charged forward into the fleet's slower ships. The enemy battleship and one of the cruisers were destroyed by missile fire, and the last cruiser was finished off by railgun fire before it could fire its own weapons. The commanding officer, unsure that the fleet could survive another round of anti-missiles, made the decision to pull back to Sol, having destroyed three of the alien ships.

With research into Ion drives and energy shielding complete, as well as a program of shipyard expansions, the US Navy is now preparing to design a new generation of larger, more capable warships.

Jacen,

The ships look pretty good based on the tech but I did notice two things. The Portland and the Teddy Roosevelt both have less than twice the MSP that their largest component needs (they are close though). That means that they wont be able to repair that component if it is destroyed in a fight. Also, The Portland goes much faster than the other two. That extra speed costs space that could be used for more rail guns. Otherwise, they look pretty good to me.

Built in response to a NPR using a lot of mesons and missiles, the speed of the fleet is dictated by the speed of the foe's current ASM designs, if it gets blindsided by a missile volley it is capable of outrunning it if AMM expenditure would be too high.

Anti-ship role using pre-existing AMM hardware.        My current foes have a lot of 60k km mesons and PD and these guys can hit them from just outside their range and still have the warheads slam in under 5 seconds.        Needs to swarm since they dont hold much ammo.        Also works OK as anti-FAC thus far.

Escorts to the fighter-bombers, in a big enough swarm they can cause large hulls some issues and are real hard to hit.        Can outrun my current opponent's AMMs.

Quick enough to cruise with the bombers until they begin their runs he provides eyes, some missile protection and some firepower, as well as a rear-guard should i need to buy time for a carrier to escape.        The corvettes are supported in turn by their leader and jump-tender:

While larger than the corvettes the general firepower is much the same, with the extra space going to a jump-drive and slightly better defenses.        If the fighters and 'vettes detach from the carriers then the Alphabjörn often stays behind, just incase.      (The carriers function as colliers and I try not to get them into combat, plus they and the Frigate have the big TH sigs so I hold them back when trying to be sneaky.  )

Comments welcome :)

Edit: Oops, stumbled onto a spoiler and the corvette/destroyer are both extinct, realised retrospectively that the s3 particle beams are a poor choice with my capacitor tech-lvl, the 2's get a better DPS.   Ahh well, a chance to reinvent the classes.   Star swarm messed me up good and proper.

Yeah, that got a lot of them eaten in combat too.     Being slower than the star-swarm heavy fighters = not so good
I did speed him up a bit, though the rest of my fleet also slowed and standardised to 6400, which is pretty slow for inertial fusion, but the whole fleet can maintain that speed, including tenders, tankers and carriers. 

I realised that I hadn't yet developed a boosted power engine for fighters, or in-fact a boosted missile engine for short ranges.   

As a lesson in correctly using technology available.   .   .     This guy is built with much the same available technology as the fighter-bomber above, just everything re-tweaked and designed especially for this craft.    (The only straight upgrade is the launcher ROF and I suspect active grav sensor strength)

Feels much shinier, and it's still a long-range design.   Love the newgen AMM, speedy!  I'm toying with a 2xAMM 3xEngine design, but I dont want to tread on the toes of my missile light-fighter seen below:

Love this guy, it's a bit niche, but with 5 of them stacking in a FAC hanger it provides a hefty AlphaStrike and I forsee some use chasing damaged ships down.
