NAC MInerva Frigates.

A refit of the older Miyazaki class frigates, the Minerva is designed for close support. A variant exists which replaces some of the beam weapons with point defense systems. This allows the ship to provide close anti-fighter support for convoy escorts or in a fleet. A relatively straightforward ship to paint.

NAC Arapaho Corvette

Here are a trio of NAC Arapaho corvettes. A relatively weak ship, however has some armor to improve its survivability. It is armed with beams and occasionally a submunition pack. Ships were painted using a white basecoat followed by a black wash and highlighted with white. Details were painted and finally, the NAC emblem was added.

Defensively, the rely on screens and their ships are relatively mobile. Here are the scouts of the NAC fleet, the Harrison class. It is primarily used for courier and recon duties. An older design that relies more on armour rather than speed in combat.

NAC Fighters

After a brief stint in the Star Trek Universe, we return to the Tuffyverse (Full Thrust). In FT, the New Anglican Confederation consists of what is currently the UK, Canada, and the US (please correct me if I'm wrong). It is one of the for main human factions in this universe. The NAC tends to use fighters in an offensive role, relying on escorts to protect their carriers. Above is the mainline fighter for the NAC, the Firestorm II. They also field a heavier fighter called the Phantom, which is designed more for an assault role.
