Fresh Prototypes! - Beam and Assault Cruisers

The first two of the next wave of ships. Click on images for larger version.

Assault Cruiser

The standard TDC ship of the line, the assault cruiser packs a lot of firepower into a conveniently sized (cheap) hull. Mounting six turrets, including a super-heavy dual beam turret, the Assault Cruiser is almost as heavily armed, and faster than its heavier cousin the Diplomat.

Beam Cruiser
The beam cruiser was designed for only one thing, and one thing alone, unloading a massive amount of focused energy into one small area. Whether said area is the hull of an alien battleship, or the crust of a rebellious planet is not something the designers of this ship bothered to specify. Comparison Chart.
From top to bottom: Assault Carrier, Diplomat Heavy Cruiser, Beam Cruiser, Assault Cruiser, Negotiator Heavy Destroyer, GZG NSL Lutznow Class Destroyer.

They look fantastic, what about battleships/ superheavy dreadnoughts types is that something you are considering?
