The Muthos Engineering Consortium (MEC) proudly presents our latest catalogue!
Presented by narhiril (Velvet)

Update 12/9/17 - Added the Bentusi Super Acolyte.  Added new teasers.
Update 12/7/17 - Added the Kadeshi Fuel Pod
Update 12/4/17 - Added the MEC 'Nocturna' Patrol Frigate and Split Asp M4+


====================================================================================

With a catalogue currently featuring a station, a handful of ships, and a generous offering of fighter designs, we at the MEC are dedicated to providing high quality products for all of your needs.  It's a dangerous galaxy out there, we know, but we aim to make it feel a little less dangerous.

For the discerning adventurer/commander/industrial tycoon, our designs combine form with functionality.  We at MEC want the last thing to go through the mind of your enemies as your MEC-designed ship or fighter tears their hull to pieces to be "well, if I have to die, at least I have something nice to look at."

For the sake of convenience, our catalogue can now also be accessed through the Steam Workshop.


====================================================================================

MEC Ship Catalogue

The MEC ship catalogue currently consists of two categories.  The first is the "Homeworld" series, which consists of ships (currently only one) from the Homeworld franchise.  The second category is the "MEC Signature" series; ships in this series are original designs from our R&D labs.  Our legal team would like us to note that our ships do not come pre-equipped with any weapons or systems.  It is the responsibility of the consumer to outfit their own ship.

Spoiler: Homeworld Ship Catalogue • show
Kadeshi Fuel Pod (6-slot)



A small, frigate-class vessel used by the Kadeshi to refuel their Swarmers.  It is only lightly armed and armored, but plays a vital role in the operations of the Kadeshi fleet.

For more information on the Kadeshi Fuel Pod (including images), click here!

Download the Kadeshi Fuel Pod here!



Spoiler: MEC Signature Ship Catalogue • show


MEC 'Vespid' Hive Ship (10-slot)



The Vespid-class "hive ship" is the MEC's largest offering to date.  Featuring the latest in hexagonal component technology, the Vespid offers solid performance, good shielding, decent maneuverability, and lots of hangar space.  It is a versatile capital ship capable of easily handling any threat outside of the dangerous galactic core sectors.  The Vespid has armored internals, some of which are frameworks that can be swapped out for components of your choice.  Plus, it looks really, really cool - it goes great with our VF series of fighters!

Download the MEC 'Vespid' here!


MEC 'Nocturna' Patrol Frigate (5-slot)



A small frigate for customers on a budget who are looking for a ship for escort duty or sector patrol.  The 'Nocturna' carries two forward-mounted laser cannons (lasers not included) and five double hardpoints for coverage weapons.  Some of its armored internals are frameworks that can be changed out for components of your choice.

For more information on the MEC 'Nocturna' (including images), click here!

Download the MEC 'Nocturna' here!


MEC 'Rialto' Carrier (7-slot)



The first capital ship ever built by the MEC, the Rialto-class carrier has been updated several times to remain competitive with more modern offerings.  Though its shields are somewhat weak, the Rialto boasts solid performance in all other areas and can be constructed on a budget.  The Rialto is a perfect low-cost carrier solution for all of your needs outside of the galactic core.  Goes great with our SP Mk. III 'Thunderbolt' Heavy Fighter!

Download the MEC 'Rialto' here!



====================================================================================


MEC Station Catalogue

There is currently only one entry in the MEC station catalogue - the "MEC Production Hive" asteroid station.  Our legal team would again like us to note that our stations do not come pre-equipped with any weapons or fighters - it is up to the consumer to outfit their own station.

Spoiler: MEC Signature Station Catalogue • show


MEC Production Hive



A state of the art production facility built into an asteroid, featuring second-generation hexagonal hangar bays and even a monorail line.  Most of the internal modules are just frameworks, which can be replaced with whatever components you might want.  Goes great with our VCS-1 'Atropilosa' Cargo Shuttles!  Check out the image gallery for better pictures!

MEC Fighter Catalogue (Part 1)

Our fighter catalogue is subdivided into four categories - the "X3" series, the "Homeworld" series, our original "MEC Signature" series, and the "Miscellaneous" series (designs that don't fit neatly into any other category).

Furthermore, please bear in mind that our fighter designs are only intended to be used as blueprints for fighters - attempts to use any of our fighter designs for any other purpose voids our limited warranty.  We also would like to state for the record that while pictures in our catalogue may sometimes suggest otherwise, our fighters do not come pre-equipped with any weapons or turrets - it is up to the consumer to outfit their own fighters.

Finally, we would like to inform you that screenshots from the image galleries show our fighters at true scale - when you use our blueprints to produce fighters, that's the level of detail you can expect.  A lot of texture detail in the full scale blueprint gets lost when converted into an actual fighter, so we want you to not have grounds to sue us have a realistic expectation for what the end product will actually look like.

Spoiler: X3 Fighter Catalogue • show


Fighter designs based on the X3 series (Reunion, Terran Conflict, Albion Prelude).

Argon Nova (M3)



A well-rounded heavy fighter design used by the Argon Federation.  The Nova is capable of mounting a good variety of weapons that allow it to perform well in multiple roles, from escort fighter to carrier-based bomber.

For more information on the Argon Nova (including images), click here!

Download the Argon Nova here!


Terran (Aldrin) Spitfyre (M3)



An extremely fast heavy fighter design from the lost colony of Aldrin, the Spitfyre's speed and all-around good performance in other areas make it a dangerous fighter in capable hands, though it can be difficult to fly.

For more information on the Aldrin Spitfyre (including images), click here!

Download the Aldrin Spitfyre here!


Terran Sabre (M4)



A powerful interceptor of Terran design, the Sabre is built for dogfighting.  With above-average stats in most areas, it excels at killing other fighters, though it can be expensive to field.

For more information on the Terran Sabre (including images), click here!

Download the Terran Sabre here!


Teladi Falcon (M3)



Built by the profit-driven Teladi, the Falcon is equal parts heavy fighter and light cargo vessel.  It can be used for trade, or loaded up with missiles and/or chainguns to pack a surprising punch.

For more information on the Teladi Falcon (including images), click here!

Download the Teladi Falcon here!


Pirate Falcon Vanguard (M3)



A cheaply-modified and repainted version of a Teladi Falcon Vanguard, this pirate vessel is commonly used for preying on vulnerable trade ships and smuggling contraband.

For more information on the Pirate Falcon Vanguard (including images), click here!

Download the Pirate Falcon Vanguard here!


Paranid Perseus (M3)



The long-serving M3 of the Paranid Empire, the Perseus makes up for its below-average speed and cargo capacity with an impressive amount of forward firepower.

For more information on the Paranid Perseus (including images), click here!

Download the Paranid Perseus here!


Split Asp (M4+)



The Asp is the most advanced interceptor used by the Split Dynasty.  It excels at fast kills, using its speed to avoid enemy fire and maneuver into position to use its Pulsed Beam Emitter or to launch a heat-seeking Thunderbolt missile.  Unlike most Split fighters, the Asp's shields are also pretty good.

For more information on the Split Asp (including images), click here!

Download the Split Asp here!


Xenon N (M5)



The smallest ship in the Xenon arsenal, the N is the forward scout and harassment craft of the Xenon.  Though its defenses are extremely weak, it is usually deployed in large numbers.

For more information on the Xenon N (including images), click here!

Download the Xenon N here!


Xenon M (M4)



An M4 interceptor design used by the Xenon, the M is one of the smallest ships capable of mounting the dangerous Pulsed Beam Emitter.  It is a serious threat to other fighters, and can even threaten larger targets in sufficient numbers.

For more information on the Xenon M (including images), click here!

Download the Xenon M here!


Xenon L (M3)



A heavy fighter design used by the Xenon, the L is able to mount the dreaded Pulsed Beam Emitter.  Though it is outclassed by the newer Xenon LX, the L is still a competent heavy fighter, especially in numbers.

For more information on the Xenon L (including images), click here!

Download the Xenon L here!


Xenon LX (M3+)



The largest and deadliest Xenon fighter, the LX improves upon the earlier Xenon L by adding a much more powerful laser capacitor and two turrets for coverage and missile defense.

For more information on the Xenon LX (including images), click here!

Download the Xenon LX here!



Spoiler: Homeworld Fighter Catalogue • show


Fighter designs based on the Homeworld series (HW, Cataclysm, HW2, Deserts of Kharak).  Some designs in this category (currently only the Kadeshi Pulsar Swarmer) are also based on concept art or mods.

Kadeshi Swarmer



An extremely fast fighter with powerful forward guns used by the protectors of Kadesh.  Swarmers can outrun and outgun most other fighters, though they are limited by their very small fuel capacity.

For more information on the Kadeshi Swarmer (including images), click here!

Download the Kadeshi Swarmer here!


Kadeshi Advanced Swarmer



A heavier version of the Swarmer, the Advanced Swarmer packs additional forward guns and armor without sacrificing any speed.  It does, however, share the Swarmer's limited fuel capacity.

For more information on the Kadeshi Advanced Swarmer (including images), click here!

Download the Kadeshi Advanced Swarmer here!


Kadeshi Pulsar Swarmer



A modded variant of the Swarmer that swaps the projectile cannons for a single pulsar beam cannon, for use against corvette-class vessels.

Taiidan Interceptor


Spoiler: Imperial Colors • show




The dedicated interceptor of both factions of the Taiidan.  Available in both Imperial Taiidan and Taiidan Republic color schemes.

Kiith Somtaaw Acolyte


Spoiler: Acolyte Flight Configuration • show




The Bentusi-designed heavy fighter of Kiith Somtaaw, used during the Beast War.  Available in both open-wing (attack) and closed-wing (flight) configurations.

For more information on the Kiith Somtaaw Acolyte (including images), click here!

Download the Kiith Somtaaw Acolyte (Attack Configuration) here!
Download the Kiith Somtaaw Acolyte (Flight Configuration) here!


Bentusi Super Acolyte



This obscenely powerful fighter is a weapon of absolute last resort for the trade ships of the normally peaceful Bentusi.  How they managed to fit two full-powered ion cannons onto a fighter is a secret that they would prefer to take to their graves, but the result is the single hardest-hitting fighter in the known Homeworld universe.

For more information on the Bentusi Super Acolyte (including images), click here!

Download the Bentusi Super Acolyte here!


Turanic Raider Interceptor



A well-armored, low-maintenance fighter used by the notorious Turanic Raiders.  It is known for having poor maneuverability for an interceptor, but an extremely high fuel capacity.

For more information on the Turanic Raider Interceptor (including images), click here!

Download the Turanic Raider Interceptor here!


Vaygr Survey Scout



A small, fast scouting ship used by the warriors of the Vaygr Reaches.  It is only lightly armed and armored, but carries powerful sensors and an EMP device.

For more information on the Vaygr Survey Scout (including images), click here!

Download the Vaygr Survey Scout here!


Vaygr Assault Craft



The dedicated interceptor of the Vaygr, the Assault Craft is fast and carries a deadly flechette cannon for shredding enemy fighters.

For more information on the Vaygr Assault Craft (including images), click here!

Download the Vaygr Assault Craft here!


Vaygr Bomber



A fighter design used by the Vaygr.  The Bomber carries twin plasma bomb launchers for punching through heavy capital ship armor and ravaging subsystems.

For more information on the Vaygr Bomber (including images), click here!

Download the Vaygr Bomber here!


Vaygr Lance Fighter



Used by the warriors of the Vaygr Reaches, the Lance Fighter carries a forward-mounted plasma lance.  It is designed to easily pierce through corvette armor, though it lacks the punch needed to threaten frigates or capital ships.

MEC Fighter Catalogue (Part 2)


Spoiler: MEC Signature Fighter Catalogue • show

MEC SP Mk. III 'Thunderbolt' Heavy Fighter



What started as a practice run for the Kadeshi Swarmer build (in our Homeworld series) eventually was polished up and became the SP Mk. III 'Thunderbolt.'  Armed with two tesla coils, the Thunderbolt makes an excellent companion for our Rialto-class carrier.

For more information on the MEC SP Mk. III 'Thunderbolt' (including images), click here!

Download the MEC SP Mk. III 'Thunderbolt' here!


MEC VF-1 'Simillima' Heavy Fighter



A cutting-edge heavy fighter design from the MEC's R&D labs.  Packing heavy forward guns, the Simillima fills a role somewhere between interceptor and light bomber.  Goes great with the Vespid-class hive ship!

For more information on the MEC VF-1 'Simillima' (including images), click here!

Download the MEC VF-1 'Simillima' here!


MEC VF-1B 'Xanthoptera' Mining Fighter



A modified VF-1 'Simillima' chassis with the guns removed, the wings broadened, and the comms antennae moved to make room for a large, belly-mounted cutting laser.  Designed for mining and heavy salvage operations, warranty void if used as a (note: reasonably effective) weapon.  Goes great with the Vespid-class hive ship!

For more information on the MEC VF-1B 'Xanthoptera' (including images) click here!

Download the MEC VF-1B 'Xanthoptera' here!


MEC VF-2 'Luctuosa' Bomber



Using the drives and basic chassis design of the VF-1 'Simillima,' the VF-2 'Luctuosa' mounts a pair of heavy plasma launchers for use against capital ships.  The cockpit was moved off-center to protect the pilot and gunner from the heat of the plasma weapon discharge.  Goes great with the Vespid-class hive ship!

For more information on the MEC VF-2 'Luctuosa' (including images), click here!

Download the MEC VF-2 'Luctuosa' here!


MEC VF-3 'Velutina' Interceptor



Built on an entirely new chassis, the VF-3 'Velutina' is an exceptional interceptor.  It mounts a pair of variable-geometry wings (usually held forward and slightly downward) to shift its center of gravity during flight, allowing it to perform complex combat maneuvers.  Goes great with the Vespid-class hive ship!

For more information on the MEC VF-3 'Velutina' (including images), click here!

Download the MEC VF-3 'Velutina' here!


MEC VF-9 'Rufa' Attack Craft



Designed in secret by an eccentric engineer, the VF-9 'Rufa' shirks all design and numbering conventions to deliver a surprisingly capable tesla fighter.  We decided to keep the original prototype's paint job.

For more information on the MEC VF-9 'Rufa' (including images), click here!

Download the MEC VF-9 'Rufa' here!


MEC VCS-1 'Atropilosa' Cargo Shuttle



Built to ferry cargo between MEC Production Hives, the VCS-1 'Atropilosa' consists of a cockpit and cargo bay saddled to a powerful set of engines.  Use it to move goods between your stations!

Builds in this category are designs from various games and works of fiction besides Homeworld and X3.

Vell-os Dart (Escape Velocity: Nova)



The smallest of the Vell-os psionic "ships," the Dart is the standard personal craft of mid-ranking Vell-os telepaths.  It glides through hyperspace by the sheer willpower of its pilot, and can even be used to attack using a technique called the "Flower of Spring."  The Vell-os Dart is translucent.

Batwing Mk. I (Batman: The Animated Series)



Batman's personal aircraft.  The Batwing seats two comfortably (room for Robin!) and carries a variety of gadgets to assist Batman in bringing justice to Gotham City.

Reserving one more post because this catalogue is getting quite large, and I will probably need it someday.
