  1. What weaponry is on this behemoth

  2. Keenja96

    just a thought, but considering your previous work on the secutor class star destroyer, which was itself essentially a dedicated carrier based off of the venator which has close to 3 times the number of fighters officially, how many fighters do you think the secutor class should have, or do you honestly believe that the 144 fighters cited by wikipedia isn’t positively puny for a dedicated carrier of that size?

      I have no idea where 144 came from. That’s less than half of a Venator’s complement. I’m thinking Secutors would have on the order of 8+ wings, so from 500-700 fighters.

    Hey which of these two ships can carry more fighters this one or the Lucrehulk?

      This ship carries something like 1728 fighters according to Fractal, that’s 12 times as much as the Exectuor SSD which only carries 144 fighters. So this ship and the Lucrehulk are roughly equal. Lucrehulk carries something like 1500 Vulture droid fighters as I recall.

  4. Wow, great ship!
    Anyone have a good count on how many hangars that beauty has? I keep losing track of my count…

    You said this carrier can hold up to 4 groups of 6 wings so does that mean that each group have 6 wings or these 6 wings are divided into 4 groups?

    • Fractalsponge

      Group contains several Wings, so 4 Groups, each of 6 Wings, each typically of 6 Squadrons. I think that’s how it’s supposed to go anyway.

        right and each squadron were 12 fighters so this all adds up to a whopping 1728 fighters. (12 fighters X 6 squadrons X 6 wings X 4 groups)

    i wonder if this ship is more powerful than the ISD by how much?

    • PyrrhicVictory7

      In terms of firepower, no, but would easily be able to take on an ISD with that kind of complement.

        In terms of Firepower it seems like it easily could. Just look at the amount of Heavy Turbolaser batteries all over the hull.

        • Funny thing, if the Empire would have operated these things enmasse instead of going Death star/SSD route the Rebellion would’ve never succeeded.

  7. What is the armament on this thing? I see some heavy turbolasers and lots of PD cannons, but I can’t count them all lol.

    That is simply amazing detail! Lucasfilm should hire you. Are there any plans to tackle either the Executor, Eclipse, or Sovereign per chance?

    • darkelf2x1

      Technically, they did (he did some work that was officially published as part of, what is now, Star Wars Legends)

  9. What is the fighter compliment and size of this ship? It looks very well done.

    • Fractalsponge

      It’s about 3.5km long. Fighter complement is…enormous. Thousands. Because it dedicates a huge proportion of its volume to fighters, unlike things like the ISD.

        You ain’t kidding. Besides those main frontal & ventral hangars, do I spy a pair of (relatively) teeny-tiny launch bays up in each prow-tip? Nice beefy engine cluster as well, and I suppose that fantail provides coverage for said nozzles in the event this thing has to actually orient & shoot at a peer opponent.

      • A lot more fighters than I had figured. I guessed it had to be close to a thousand, but thousands was beyond what I thought. As a dedicated carrier it would need other dedicated warships to protect against other capital ships i.e. Dreadnoughts. I imagine the fighter/bomber squadrons could handle smaller ships or maybe a single dreadnought if no other ships were involved. I was curious about the size though because in some of your new works where it is in formation with other ships it looks to be about slightly less than half the length of the Assertor class.

        • gorkmalork

          Those formation shots probably entail some ships being (much) closer to the ‘camera’ than others, hence the scale confusion without common elements (like, say, bridge towers) to compare.

            dang if the rebels (in the animated series) took this ship, they would be set for their fleet, they would be able to sell the ties for parts and have room for their ships. Even keep some of the ties to use against the empire. Awesome job with the ship.

  10. Reminds me of the Relentless class carrier from the IMPS The Relentless fan film series. Yet it looks even bigger!
