I count 75 octuple turbolaser batteries (or 600 single barrels), so worth roughly 9 and a half ISDII.

By away fractal you said the Impellor class fleet carrier have three bridge station on the tower bridge as it is for maintaining fighters and ground forces right? And if so then why does the Compellor star cruiser have the same one as well when the Compellor was a warship counterpart? Is it because they do the same job with fighters and ground forces or something different?

Compellor likely just carries *less* secondary craft & grunts as opposed to deleting ’em entirely ala the Allegiance, so those extra bridge facilities may still be useful.

Why is this ship only have IISD Oct HTL as is main batteries instead of something stronger like the Allegiance,s Quad 140 teraton HTL main or at best the Bellator,s 720 teraton Twin HTL main or is 240 Quad teraton HTL secondary?

You said this is a medium star cruiser right and if so then in this post you have created
http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/viewtopic.php?p=3376574#p3376574
on the 240-HTL gun part you said this cailber was used as a medium star cruiser main gun and captial secondary gun so (unless this post has become outdated and you have change your mind about it or not) then why this ship only have oct 40 HTLs star destroyer’s guns (and some of those main guns you said were quad 40 HTLs) as it main and quad MTLs as it secondary?

Also you said 13 of those 40 teratons HTLs are quads but I can’t see which one is it from afar and when I try to see it close up it get low quality which make it harder to see. So when you got the time can you highlight the main turrets so I can see the different like yellow for the octs and red for the quads?

Or rather, be the class of some battlecruiser or other Imperial/First Order ship in the 3-5km range whose class has yet to be established… it’s definitely larger than the 2.9km Resurgent, however.

Seeing this comparison make me wanna see this updated: http://fractalsponge.net/?p=895
And also to see the Compellor and the Impellor being updated like the Imperator redux since the Impellor is a old model that fractal started in 2009 and was forgotten until 2016 where he finish it and the Compellor was a warship version based on the Impellor chassis so it was still technically a outdated model.

If I counted correctly, there’s an additional 31 of those octuple barbette turbolaser batteries on the dorsal portion of the ship. With 19 of them specifically down the centerline of the ship.

Love your work. I’m sorry but how is it 4.3km, if you size it next to the isd ii and match the octuple Barbette turbo lasers to the same size then it looks like it’s about 1.8 km. Idk how it would ever be 4.3 km. Again love your work but I just don’t see how it could be that large

Seems to me this niche is already filled with the Praetor Mk II, with both being roughly the same size. Does this vessel have improved firepower over the Praetor? Just curious as to what the different roles would be.

Eh, I prefer your pre-Guide to Warfare stats for the Marvel battlecruiser anyhow. Since said volume is more/less retconned anyway, that’s even more of a tonnage gap ‘tween the two.

The turbolaser turrets on this are similar to the octuples on the Imperial II class correct? I really like this design. It fills a gap between the Allegiance class and the Mandator/Bellator designs quite nicely. I feel like the Allegiance is more of a “large cruiser” as opposed to a true battlecruiser. This and the Bellator are my two favorite designs you’ve made by far. Ever consider expanding on the Bellator/ Mandator classes?

I think the rationale for that ‘Warlords’ game-mod’s Mandator take was ‘dreadnought a few years prior to KDY doomwedge proliferation,’ but agreed on it not quite feeling right.

That’s terrific FS, keep in mind the extant Republic era tech leading to the more notable capital mobilizations for fleet (hours before Hoth) is probably eschewed for Mandator III. Instead, we have the Interdiction and fighter carrier roles to repurpose; true brawler builds at a time of Imperial assuredness at space superiority.

As I understand it, Fractal’s spin on Allegiance packs cruiser-grade firepower on an upper-end-size destroyer hull by maximizing reactor volume & minimizing non-power-related stuff like hangar space. Incidentally, the Bellator & Mandator weren’t that closely linked prior to the Essential Guide to Warfare; FS had intended to model Mandator as a slightly (i.e. 14 km) shorter but bulkier, pre-Executor dreadnought with some design commonality.

Digging this beast’s thruster layout, understated ‘terraces’, lovingly-greebled axial ridge & decent fantail firepower distribution. All told, this design & its carrier counterpart fill a notable gap ‘tween the upper-end destroyers & sundry Marvel/Dark Horse battlecruisers (even if most of those have been stricken from the ‘official’ record). Ah, and color me curious about those brim-trench pylons near the amidships MTL arrays: tractor beams?

It seems a lot like an Assertor/Bellator dwarf. Downright terrifying. If I was a rebel captain and I saw this barreling my way, I’d run. At least with an Executor your ship is probably smaller than it’s primary turrets…

Well, with Ex & others approaching her tonnage, it’s not so much the lack of any proper-for-zorching-you gun caliber so much as the logistical boondoggle of siccing that much ship on your CR90 squad or single MC80 in the first place. This one’s mean enough to solo most potential targets & less likely to give the bean-counters a triple bypass.

Executor’s edge(s) over prior dreadnoughts might’ve involved sublight acceleration, carrier/tender capability, or EW/coordination (what with the Antenna City on her dorsal surface). Plus, shiny new flagshps to keep the Core properly spooked-err, secure.

It still is “an” Interdictor though since the Im 418 has the abilities of an Interdictor.

Strictly spoken all ships which have a grav-well to prevent hyperspace jumps or pull other ships out of hyperspace can be called an Interdictor because the term can also be used as a description for the functionality/ability of the ship, it’s limited to a class name.

There does exist an “Interdictor-class” in Knights of the Old Republic, meaning the lead ship of that class was probably actually named “Interdictor”, but in terms of functionality the Immobilizer 418, the CC-7700 Frigate, Eclipse-class SSD and the “Dominator”-class Interdictor based on the ISD I-hull are all Interdictors.

I think he said 4.3 km. An Imperial-class is 1.6 km, a Procursator ~1.2 km, a Victory ~900 meters, those new Episode VII Resurgents about 2.9 km, a Venator about 1.1 km.

4.3 km would make it bigger than a Praetor Mark I (which is exactly 4 km), but smaller than a Praetor Mark II (4.8 km), thus placing it in the Star Battlecruiser range.

I’m always curious about these ships. First of all what era do you see this one and the Impellor being constructed in? Like were a handful produced during the Clone Wars and then hit mass production in the Imperial Era? Or is this later than that even. Then of course I wonder what kind of defences does it have? I know that they have ray and deflector shields of course, but what are it’s point defence capabilities. I’m aware that many KDY warships under Tarkin’s doctrine suffered from trench run syndrome or whatever it’s called. Are these models any better or worse in that regard? If they are, what kind of defences do they have that set them apart one way or the other?
Sorry, I get carried away. Still, beautiful design. Prefer the Impellor, but that’s just a preference towards carriers in general for me. I kinda picture these two ship classes as like a form of honour guard for star dreadnoughts and the like…

Offhand, I’m not sure the Tarkin Doctrine was ever *that* much of a crippling KDY design influence; for one thing, pretty sure the late-90s novels quoting Ackbar and/or Wedge on Impstar vulnerability took most of their numbers from the X-wing & Tie Fighter PC games, which were understandably a skosh snubfighter-biased. Plus, most of the fire we see from OT Imperial heavies seems to indicate plenty of medium or point-defense guns, including some nasty off-angle hits (cripes, Executor’s gunners came within an inch of averting that bridge impact). It’s just rather tough to perceive fighter-scale weapons on multi-mile hulls.

For what it’s worth, those aforementioned X-wing books had Ackbar referring to Victories as “Vics” whilst Home One was engaging a minor ex-Imp warlord’s flagship & escorts. Not a huge fan of Allston (RIP) & Stackpole’s sense of scale, but I retain a soft spot for their sundry slang terms referring to fighters & capital craft alike. Plus, “Impstar” just rolls off my mental ‘tongue’ better than ‘ISD’ due to fewer syllables-sheer irrational preference at work. Certainly wouldn’t expect anyone else to follow my lead on this, and I’ll admit to using “Impstar” as lazy shorthand for “Imp capital ships in general” in the prior text-brick.
