That name is misleading.

Now this is what I call a worthy successor to the good old Larty! It not only looks like it means business, but is armed for it as well.

Much better than those First Order landers, which do not look like they could land in enemy AAA worth a damn!

And the Poggle the Lesser wanted one before! Now everyone should want one, because it still looks like they’d cut through enemies like Butcherbugs!

How long would this be

Fractal put it at 17.9 meters in length just a little bit longer than a LAAT/i which is at 17.4 meters in length.
But the latter’s length is in legends while the one in canon out of nowhere is now 28.8 meters in length which is barely as long as the LAAT/c which is 28.82 meters in length.

Or better yet what role does this assault vehicle have that make it different from the stormtrooper transport?

Very late reply to my comment but I do know the roles of these two ships now the DX-9 is meant for boarding and assaulting enemy warships while this is for carrying infantry onto the battlefield.

Now this is one of my favorite designs. This is a tremendous improvement over the republic gunship from the prequels in every respect–better armed, greater troop capacity, probably much faster, and it looks damn cool too!

It kind of reminds me of frikkin huge MG-42’s on the wing turrets.

Every time I come back to this site… I find some new thing(s) to drool over.

Another beautiful piece.

some observations though…

you don’t actually want good visibilty, if the plan is to get shot at (because your a flying tank.) which is one of the things I love about this. It has enough viewports in case the crap lands more your way than theirs.

Secondly… how pissed would you be if I totally stole this and printed up a R/C version of it?

Cuz… you know… that’s probably the closest I’ll get to owning one IRL….

Hmm. I’m curious as to why the missile launchers mounted in the roots of the wings seem to have a group of four that are separated from the others? The weapons on the wings that can rotate — are those blasters or laser cannons? What about the chin-mounted weapons? And do we have a central directional light that is also chin-mounted between the weapons? And do we also have strut-mounted lights on port and starboard in front of the doors on the sides? Could we get a view that was landed, with all hatches and doors open? Every time I… Read more »

Nice take on the LAAT/i’s successor. Sadly we have not seen a Imperial variant yet (aside from the games). The flight deck looks better protected albeit with less visibility. No aft turret?

Too bad you’re not designing for the new SW movies. The TFA lander was horrible!

Much like your Stormie Transport revision, this puppy sports a reasonable cross-section & plenty of teeth. Would it have enough thrust to evade/contend with attacking starfighters in atmosphere, or are T-47s & -16s a closer performance ballpark?

If this is “light”… the “heavy” one will be true monster.
