Honestly, I’m curious what the crew compliment would be And how many planets would the Empire have to sap for resources to build one?

If I could pick any ship in star wars to be my flagship, this would be it.

i second that but i would make a hybrid of this ship and the impellor.

Also does it have the same weakness as an Executor when it’s bridge gets taken down the entire ship as well?

Eh, trashing a starship’s bridge doesn’t constitute a total kill unless it happens to hit one doozy of an obstacle before secondary control comes online or someone kills forward thrust (which is apparently what happened in ROTJ…we even see something which *might* be an engine misfire around Executor’s aft on the way down). In an open-space engagement, Ex probably would’ve reoriented itself & gone gloves-off on the Rebel fleet.

That lack of automatic thrust re-adjustment from the Executor is something that I might have expected to happen in one of the first few Clone Wars battles, but by the time of Endor, surely there’s enough institutional experience fighting around planets, moons, and space stations that KDY has corrected for it and added automatic redundancy protocols.

Guess that might depend on how quickly secondary control can be established and/or how often catastrophic bridge damage touches off random helm input. Given that we see two (admittedly Jedi) pilots safely land half a kriffin’ CIS destroyer, perhaps the ROTJ death dive was another golden BB in a day jam-packed with such contrivances. Me, I’d insist on at least one fully-crewed auxiliary CIC at all times.

The blast from the A-wings fuel tanks exploding knocked out the secondary command deck like a shaped charge missile, meaning the Executor could not regain control.

gorkmalork
Guest

Further memo to self: given a multi-mile ship design, place fully-staffed auxiliary bridge(s) far enough from the primary deck *not* to get caught by whichever localized disaster necessitates their use. Urgh.

CRMcNeill

I’d be inclined to think that the multiple bridges seen are the equivalent of the dual bridges on ships like the Venator or Consolidator, with each having their own specific command portfolio, such as a Flag Bridge, ground forces command, starfighter command, VIP “bridge” (a mimic of a fully functional bridge to impress visiting dignitaries without letting them onto the actual bridge itself), and so on and so forth.

gorkmalork

Sound-seeming thought. I’d still want at least one of those stations to feature a manned backup helm which cuts in the nanosecond primary control’s disrupted. Especially if your ship’s mission profile involves a lot of noodling around non-interdictor gravity wells.

Daib
Guest

Manned? The best sounding explanation for the Executor’s last dive was human error as various squabbling auxiliary helms all simultaneously laid in contradictory courses after Piett ate an A-Wing, to disastrous effect. Put a computer in charge, pleeeease.

So the galaxy’s biggest case of ‘Left! No, down! No no, down more-WAITWAITSHITALLSTOPALL-‘ ? You’d think anyone with (a) input authority and (b) half a clue about the ship’s position would be panic-mashing evasive burns bent on keeping it well clear of the moon and/or megastation. Hell, Ex’s *starting* proximity to DS2 for that scene seems dangerously close in the context of a rock-tossing-distance fleet melee.

Stardragon

honestly, the empire should have known better than to put the auxiliary bridge that closes to the main if that was the case.

It would seem this ship has a secondary command bridge pretty close to the other. I think the Assertor has a chance of surviving the destruction of the main command bridge.

Noah
Guest

Actually it doesn’t. If you look closely at it, you’ll see that it actually has multiple bridges.

ZahnFan
Guest

I believe in legends ISDs and SSDs had in addition to the main bridge, an auxiliary bridge buried somewhere down in the hull. If the main bridge was taken out this would have survived. in the case of Executor perhaps there were gaps in communication or confusion for long enough to keep them from taking control before slamming into the DS2.

Marton

It probably has like 10 secandary bridges since its ment to be the best SSD

SWFan

Hey I wonder if this monster can take down atleast 50 to 70 ISDs in an engagement? also can it take down 2 Excecutor SSDs in an engagement?

So Fractal how big is the Assertor’s superlaser firing arc?

ivan

Why resolution is only 1200*500 its too little for such Absolute ship

Raul
Guest

An Imp star with a Superlaser installed has the power to annihilate a small moon that’s 200 kilometers in diameter or crack a continent in half.

I looked up any reali life equivalant to the small moon, closest was Iris 7 which is 199.8 kilometers in diameter. I used SD dot nets calculator and got a yield of 25 teratons of tnt for the minimum to destroy the moon. Scaling x400 the Assertors would be 10,000 Teratons of tnt.

Robert Branca

No,
you are talking petatons assertors would likely be in the exaton range single to triple digit

Not Fractal but here the caliber of these HTLs and HICs that Fractal calculated:
376 720-teraton HTL (188×2)
2132 240-teraton HTL (533×4)
2048 40-teraton HTL (256×8)
280 240-teraton equivalent heavy ion cannon (70×4)

Hey fractal is the slot in the prow of the ship supposed to be a superlaser like the eclipse or am i just hoping?

Valoren

For those who wonder the ship armement.

-655 ultra-heavy quadruple turbolaser batteries.
-256 heavy octuple turbolaser batteries.
-142 heavy ion batteries
-a 70 petaton yield superlaser at the bow.
And probably thousands of other invisibly small turbolasers and AA point-defense systems.

I just counted the larger guns
633 Dual Ultra Heavy turbo lasers (give or take a few)
256 Octuple Barbette HTL
100 Ball mounted Quad Ion cannons (48 in trench and 52 across the rest of the ship, idk if they’re heavy, super heavy or ultra heavy but it’s one of the three, I’d probably go with super heavy but whatever)
Idk how many other guns, way too many and too small to count.
This is my count, I’ve probably missed some but I think valoren’s count is correct.

How does this ship fare against the Viscount class star defender in the battle?

Grand Admiral Declann
Guest
Grand Admiral Declann

It is hard to say… Just looked at the stats of the Viscount, and I have to say that it is /possible/ for the Viscount to win, but the most likely winner would be the Assertor.

Revan
Guest

Yeah I’d probably go with the assertor, the assertor has less weapons than the Viscount I think but they’re alot more powerful, then consider the Axial super laser.

Hecatomb

My god, this is a magnificent design! Assertor is an apt name, as it would certainly assert itself over any opponent it encountered. I imagine its mere presence in a star system would quell almost any unrest, and give pause to even the largest enemy fleet.

Grand Admiral Declann
Guest
Grand Admiral Declann

If the Assertor was only used by the Imperial Remnant — I believe that this ship is in Legends, so Pellaeon’s Imperial Faction. They called themselves the Empire, but I called it the Remnant to avoid confusion. — then a more apt name would be Avenger Class.

With this many hangers how much fighters can this behemoth have?

Revan
Guest
Revan

24 wings, each wing has 6 squadrons and each squadron has 12 starfighters. So 1,728 starfighters total.
1 wing= 6 squadrons-72 starfighters
1 squadron= 12 Starfighters

*ahem* Source? The Star Wars Technical Commentaries did a visual comparison from footage in Return of the Jedi and determined that the Executor was “at least 11 times longer than an ISD.” That puts it at a bare minimum of 17,600 meters. 19,000 meters is a reasonable estimate.

You have angered a Grand Admiral! The Executor isn’t even the largest ship built! There is a class of Star Dreadnought that is 60 Kilometers on it’s longest axis – 41 Kilometers longer than the Executer. That ship is called the Supremacy, and it is the ONLY Mega-Class Super Star Dreadnought. But there is a ship even bigger than that. The Death Star I, with a diameter of 140 Kilometers. The Death Star II was even larger, with a massive diameter range, from 160 Kilometers up to 900 Kilometers. I believe that the DS-II was around 200 Kilometers Diameter. The… Read more »

What were you smoking? Worldships are large, bigger than the Supremacy, but would probably not be capable of being bigger than the DS. Legends-wise, The Executor was only the longest imperial ship in the Galaxy, the Eclipse had more tonnage. It was also the best well armed, housing more guns than the Assertor, Eclipse and Sovereign. The Supremacy on the other hand, is a whole different story. Knowing the large ass number of guns on the Resurgent, I would say it is possible that when we eventually get an official number of guns for the Supremacy, it will probably out-gun… Read more »

I have to disagree. The Supremacy may be huge, and she may have more guns than the Assertor, Eclipse, and Sovereign, but she doesn’t seem to be equipped with a superlaser. By contrast, the Assertor, Eclipse, and Sovereign were all equipped with superlasers, and I seriously doubt that there is any deflector shield that can protect against superlasers. If the Supremacy were to face off against any one of the three above dreadnoughts, it would be turned into swiss cheese. It gets even worse for the Supremacy, though, because not only do the three above dreadnoughts have superlasers, but also… Read more »

Not close. This ship is roughly 15,200 Meters in length. The DS-1 had a /diameter/ of 140,000 Meters. I think you could build 100 Assertors with just scrap from DS-1 alone. You could build at least a dozen from DS-0 alone. Note:The DS-0 was the prototype. It didn’t have shields, or any real hull. It was just the equatorial ring, the central power distribution core, with the Reactor in the very center of the core, and of course the Super Laser Array, so in summary was basically a proof-of-concept.

Hey at first i need to tell you that every time i look at this technological terror of yours i always imagine vader would have chosen this ship instead of the executor for his flagship if he could. which leads me to an question what would you change or strengthen if you ever consider in making an Assertor mk II? If thats even possible its marvelous at it is right now.

Hello!
I know this is now part of the “legends” stuff but where there more assertors built after assertor and wrath? As we have quite many executors i guess we have even more assertors?

Grand Admiral Declann

There was only eight Executors. From my reading of Legends, I have not even seen a /reference/ to a Bellator, let alone an Assertor. So I have to answer as “Who knows?”
