67 meters

2.2 kilotons

Maxim Gauss shield

CeraMax 4 to 25 meters of RHA equiv

Tysin SDF produced

Lack FTL.

Twin Malk Four charged particle defense turrets,  replaced with quad mount self seeking 56mm clan auto cannon.

The Rourke is a classic assault shuttle, atmospheric capable and with massive frontal armor and options for mounting hull breaching equipment in her main cargo bay. The clans cargo work horse she also serves to deliver their teams of boarders led by a Forger power armor team.  Rourkes are all the personal property of the Prince and are fully military in specification.  They can carry anything up to 130 clan personnel in soft suits or a team of 45 Forgers in power armor.  

The major clan modifications have been the replacement of the living space and addition of clan long distance robust life support, a clan hard point mount replacing her landing skids, the replacement of her long burned out charged particle cannon and her upper airlock being replaced with one capable of mating with Clan Beheaders to both provide fuel to the piggybacking vessel and to make use of the Beheaders FTL.

Of the two, the second is easily my stand out favorite. With that tapering profile and color scheme, it's like a cross between a wolf and raptor, ears back with it's elongated neck pushing the snout forward as if appraising it's next kill. With the main body higher than the cockpit, this sinister aspect is even more pronounced. To the point that if this thing was closing in on your six, it would feel like it was stalking you.

And just when you start to look around, wondering why it felt like you were being watched, it would open fire.
What do you think?

You truly have some beautiful designs, and some are well painted too.
BUT,  i really can't understand why you have not taken all this into the 3D world ?
Personally i find this kind of one dimensional art  to be (sorry to say) childish and drop dead boring, all you work could be made to look really super spectacular In 3D ! 
Your designs are SOO good and it breaks my heart to think that you're only taping into 25% of your full potential.
I realize that digital schematics is a separate art form, but wouldn't you like to see your fine works made into solid 3D photo realistic models ? 
I didn't  take your critique test because if i did it would not have looked very nice.
The system that you use looks painfully simple and basic would you consider upgrading to SketchUp it's not so difficult and will help take you into the 3D Universe.

This strange idea that everything has to be some sort of three-dimensional CG model or else it's crap is one of the stylistic plagues of our era.
