I dig the heavy cruiser. 3 primaries says early design to me, and it's unique. :D

Who would they be fighting, though? What are some scenario ideers?

I was thinking maybe some raider-type scenarios? Where someone comes along, trying to raid a convoy, and find its got some Swiss etherships to deal with first? :D

Also, did you note every ship has gyros? I thought, since the Swiss are so good at making timepieces...:D

Sorry I didn't see these sooner, very fun little set of designs.

As for the fluff, it's probably a tad anchronistic, but in order to get the Swiss involved maybe they get involved in mercenary work again? That gives them an excuse to build some Ether-ships and keep abreast of foreign developments without completly breaking thier vaunted neutrality.

Love the clockwork design = gyroscope connection too, pretty clever peice of fluff.

Works for me. They need some ships to guard their "neutral port" space station, right? :)

Sorry to necro this thread, but I'm missing these ships--silly of me to put 'em in a file that then got lost. Does anyone else have them?
