Shyy'Tha'Var Battlecruiser

Now we are reaching the heavy hitters of the Sa'Vasku fleet. The Shyy'Tha'Var has a tough carapace and can take as well as dish out plenty of punishment. The addition of pod launchers adds the equivalent of torpedoes for long range firepower. The ship was painted in the same fashion as the previous Sa'vasku ships.

Thy'Sa'Teth Escort Carrier

The Shy'Sa'Theh is the smallest carrier in the Sa'Vasku fleet. It can carry (produce) up to 12 Ku'Tho'Ra drone fighters. A fun ship to paint. The sphere is actually a metallic gold. Unfortunately, the metallic sheen doesn't photograph well.

Var'Thee'Sha Cruiser

The other cruiser in the Sa'Vasku fleet. These ships are slightly larger than the Var'Kiir'Sha cruisers and are used as raiders because of their increased durability.

Yar'Kiir'Sha Cruiser

The equivalent of a cruiser in human fleets, the Var'Kiir'Sha is the smallest true warship in the Sa'Vasku fleet. Because of the Sa'Vasku's ability to allocate all its power to either engines, shields, or weapons, this ship can really pack a punch for its size. Like with the Var'Aar'Sha light cruisers, the lighter dry brush really brings out the hull details in this ship.

Yar'Arr'Sha Light Cruiser

Now we are seeing some of the heavier ships in the Sa'Vasku fleet. The Yar'Arr'Sha is classified as a younger strike ship (equivalent to a cruiser in human fleet terms). It is a multi-role ship which serves a similar function in the Sa'Vasku fleet as light cruisers in a human fleet. You can see the details in the hull that are brought out by the tan and yellow dry brush.

Fo'Yur'Ath Destroyer

The largest common attack ship and the smallest ship in the Sa'Vasku fleet with the ability to fire torpedo type weapons. The ships are now large enough to start picking out small details in the hull. The Sa'Vasku take drybrushing well.

Fo'Sath'Aan Frigate

Not that much larger than the Fo'Kiir'Tha corvettes, the Fo'Sath'Aan is a slightly larger, more heavy armored ship. Used primarily in the escort role. Painted in a similar fashion to the other ships.

Fo'Kiir'Tha Corvette

Next for the Sa'Vasku are the Fo'Kiir'Tha younger attack ship. According to Fleet Book 2, they function like corvettes in the Sa'Vasku fleet. A very dangerous opponent for similar sized ships in the Tuffyverse.
