Battlecruiser Cressida class

This is a battlecruiser with detachable secondary gun turrets. It was an idea that I had playing around in my head for a while and then I decided to build something based around this concept. the idea is to have a warship with very powerfully armed fighters, that are launched from articulated barbettes, that also double as launchers. The idea is that these flying gun turrets can allow a small ship to out gun and out maneuver much larger/bigger forces, as they act as mobile, infinitely reconfigurable broadsides floating around the mothership.
