This model is scaled to 53mm to be suitable for fleet scale miniatures games.
The Omega class destroyer was an Earth Alliance warship, manufactured by Rocketdyne at the Neue Hanse Orbital Shipyard in Earth orbit. Following the Earth-Minbari War, it became the most powerful and ubiquitous capital ship of the Earthforce fleet and one of the strongest ships ever built by a single species among the younger races using only their own technology.
Looking to replace the aging Avenger carrier Rocketdyne added a hanger module to the versatile frame of the Omega. The resulting vessel was dubed the Orion carrier.
The vessel is capible of carrying 8 wings of fighters as opposed to the 4 wings of fighters that a stock Omega or Nova class could carry. The resulting additions limited the power available for frontline weapons. The Orion is meant to support fleets without tying the immense resources that a Poseidon carrier would need in the field.
