Comm: VSTOL dropship
Through a combination of directed and vectored thrust, as well as it's flying wing wide body, this dropship can manage an incredibly short runway takeoff or landing.  During takeoff the ship rapidly rotates vertical and uses it's main drives to power into the air.

The other interesting design feature came about in tandem with the VSTOL design work.  During spaceflight it was found that the ship would work best with the main drive engines in the "full down" position.  Pushing the ship directly ahead in what would be the "up" direction through space.  This had the benefit of allowing the internal spaces to be designed with a single gravity "direction", making them far more space efficient.

Comm: Suffren Refit
The Suffren was, at the time the information was released, one of the most modern warships in the battletech universe.  The commissioner felt that it's overall look didn't help to sell this fact.

So he asked for a Suffren with a more concise and "put together well" design.  With less gaps and disjointed pieces.

Comm: Kyushu Refit
The Kyushu is an assault dropship.  In the description of it they lay out a number of exotic maneuvers it can accomplish.  My personal favorite was the near atmosphere combat drop.  Whereby mech were dropped directly to the planet's surface from the ship via drop pods.  Obviously the ship would get as close as possible while doing this.  So, when redesigning it i made some structural changes to help it survive it's tasks.  notably i widened out the keel of the ship into a slightly aerodynamic shape.  While obviously not able to sly in any sense, when encountering extremely high atmosphere it might make the ship a bit more stable during the effort.  It was deemed a wise move to put the majority of the ship's dropship rings there.  Since if it was performing the high atmo drop, it was nearly 100% conceivable that most of the attached dropships would also be detached and engaged int he operation.

Funny thing for any artist to say really.  But i will be OOO, likely unreachable and likely unconnected for the next week and a half or so.  So if you message, note, or email me and hear nothing please don't burn my rude likeness in effigy.

Your space ship drawings remind me of drawings from an old Perry Rhodan book about Terran space ships I got in the mid 90's.
