Andrew Bolton - Class Cruiser

Appearing in Chuck Gannon's excellent books concerning Tales of the Terran Republic. The following sketches show one of the more common Terran warships that appear in a number of the books.

Spindle layout - maybe the sub-craft should contrast with the "mothership" carrier in this regard?

Signs of modular design, extendable arms for port and starboard laser emitters. I'll need to account for more than the two Gordon-class sloops, there should also be a range of drones and missiles.

Some refinements. I think this really holds true to the line about the ship being designed around the laser generator.

My favourite, though quite early Gordon-class Sloop concept.
