what do call this ship coral-class, fortress-class, or a defense-class

More ships and fighters from the Rebellion would be much appreciated!

The Profundity’s armament comes from the R1 Visual Dictionary, which has in my opinion the best technical data for an ISD-I I’ve seen. The Profundity is just over 1200 meters and while its armament may seem underwhelming, it basically the armament of an ISD-I without the heavy quads, medium TLs, and only 1/6 the point defense; but has like 12 torpedo tubes in compensation. So really it manages to pack all of an ISD-I’s heavy armament plus torpedoes, while forgoing the ISD-I’s secondary armament and point defense, which considering its size relative to an ISD its armament makes sense. From… Read more »

I could see optimizing for anti-capital action as a pressed-for-resources tradeoff WRT the MC75 line (y’know, assuming Profundity wasn’t the only example), but designs like the winged/wingless MC80s or Home One strike me as packing enough reactor space to support a roughly Impstar-proportionate (or better in H1’s case) range of weaponry. Outsourcing anti-snub needs to much lighter escorts may backfire badly if someone gets the bright idea to pick *those* off early.

Not every HTL is born equal. If the 1200 meter MC75 is originally the town hall of some Mon Calamari city, it can’t possibly be optimized for ship-to-ship combat in the same way a dedicated Kuati line destroyer is. Fractal has previously estimated the main flank guns of an ISD-I to be outputting 175 teratons per barrel, while an MC75 might be lucky to have a fifth of that per HTL shot. At Scarif, I didn’t see the Profundity fire a single round against either Imperial destroyer, which suggests diverting near 100% of reactor capacity towards shielding/ECM. The 1200 meter… Read more »

Where’s the bridge?

Mon Calamari ships often obfuscated the location of their bridge by disguising it as just one of the many weapons/sensor/shield-projector/observation blisters that dotted their hull.

How many fighters can this calamari cruiser carry?

This looks like a really neat a ship in-between the MC80 and MC90. One of the great features on here is the hangar bay… It’s very well protected from all sides.

Love this design and I’d love to fly my T-65 out of her main hanger bay.

Heck with the way every Mon Cal ship was an MC80 (MC80 Liberty, MC80 Home One which was like 3 times the size) this can be an MC80 ____ class.

And Gorgeous ship by the way forgot to add that on there.

Wonderful work!
When designing starships, do you ever come up with some technical details (size, armament, hyperdrive, crew, hangar capacity, etc)?

Got any name for this class? It’s bigger than good old MC40 and and about MC80 size.

Fractal mentioned it’s a later-Alliance/early-NR design, so…MC8(insert number from 1-9)?

Awesome Job. Love the underbelly hanger bay.

atleast it looks like a Hanger bay, unless its a engine, with the glowing color

Do you think that this ship would be able to go toe-to-toe with an Imperial-II class?

Apparently this puppy’s *slightly* smaller & packs thirty HTLs to an Impstar Deuce’s forty-eight (plus those last two heavy ion batteries), so you’d probably need two for a decisive advantage. Certainly seems to have enough thrust for a running fight, though.

That looks amazing. I wasn’t sold on it at first (in the WiP posts), but now… that model looks amazing.

It’s also neat to see you try something non-Imperial, too (as much as I love your Imperial ships, though).

The MC looks wonderful, the hullplating looks reall good, I bet it takes forever to make these.

I have to criticize only a trifle, these engines do look oversized. I like to compare them with the ISD engines, without the round blastshield things, ISD engines are actually pretty small, what makes them advanced and still believable for me.
The oversized engines on the MC do look a bit cartoonish for me, I donĀ“t wanna imagine how much fuel they consume^^

The exact particulars of Star Wars vehicles’ fuel demands re: thrust are damned hard to say, but I get the distinct impression shields & energy weapons (plus possibly lightspeed) are rather more demanding for a ship’s reactor than sublight antics.

With all the guns mounted on blisters like that, head on it makes me think of some many-eyed monster.

Brilliant job, would you say there are any more things to iron out with the method and do you think you’ll be doing any more Mon Cal ships in the future?
