Tambrian Carrier Group by wingsofwrath Tambrian Carrier Group by wingsofwrath
EDIT, 28.08.13: I updated the image by adding tactical markings to the ships, something I forgot to put in previously.

The Tambrian Carrier "Wrath of the Guide" with two escort cruisers (the Tambrian navy uses "escort cruisers" to cover the roles held IRL by both destroyers and light cruisers) "Luminary Tal Epehti" (top -named after a Tambrian war hero) and "City of Farfal" of the "City Class" (bottom) steaming at a leisurely 12 kts through the waters of the Outer Ocean.

The carrier is currently both launching and recovering aircraft for a routine patrol over the Marban/Tambr border area.
You can see the second of the outbound fighters just separate from the rail-mounted catapult, while the inbound flight is already hooked on the landing trapeze and one of the aircraft has already been stopped.

The inner space world uses this system of overhead trapeze and hooks for aircraft launch and recovery due to this world's lack of rubber or rubber substitutes, which precludes the manufacture of practical pneumatic tires. Since the trapeze-and-hook has a practical weight limit, larger aircraft tend to be seaplanes, especially since the wast majority of people in this world live either on the coast of the shallow Inner Sea or within easy access of it.

The ships all use oil-fired steam boilers and steam turbines, while the on-board weaponry is composed of anti ship rocket mortars and anti-aircraft heavy calibre cannons. The cruisers also mount a depth charge launcher near the stern.

Amazing ships! How would the planes cross the open space crisscrossed with rails without rubber tires?

The ships look a bit like French designs form the turn of the 20th Century.

The main ship looks a lot like the failed Nazi air carrier project, the Graf Zeppelin.

This drawing is onr of the best in my opinion. :)

Since I saw this picture, I wanted to draw Carrier like this, and through the long thinking time, I finally created a rough design of ocean-based ships. And to draw the picture, I browsed many pictures for composition and finllaly I thought this drawing will be the best.
So before I start drawing I want to tell you I am going to draw picture based on it and say thank you. (Of cource it is not copying.)

I'm sorry, but due to a busy schedule I am not taking commissions at this point. Case in point, it took me a whole month to answer your message, because I had no time to sift through the backlog of DA replies.
