Could anyone give me some cost related numbers on this ship? Like, how many credits would the empire have to fork over to get one of these babies?

The equivalent of two ISDII’s? Three? I imagine the scaling costs for those main reactors is probably expansional, not linear. And a heavy turbolaser is probably also not cheap.

Imperial-II class Star Destroyers just under 150,000,000 credits. The Imperial-I class ships cost slightly more, right at the 150,000,000 mark. The Empire eventually fielded more than 25,000 of these and someone in one of the EU comics (I can’t remember who) said that almost half of the Empire’s budget went into paying for the Star Destroyers. But that is just for the ship it self. They’re crewed by nearly 37,000 imperials and they carry, among many other things, 72 TIEs, 30 AT-STs and 20 AT-ATs. Basically, a fully loaded Imperial-class Star Destroyer is not cheap. Cost of capitol ships is… Read more »

So Fractal I notice something inside the Allegiance’s bow:comment image
Above that quad medium turbolaser they seem to be look like 8 missiles launchers but are they?

it does look like it. Probably a pack of PD concussion missiles – they look too small to be antiship.

I’m still waiting for an Imperial I (ANH/R1) Star destroyer

On the Imperator-Class, there are new sources, most notably SWBF2 Campaign that pinpoint where the Point-Defence TL’s are located. (hint hint)

Interesting. I see 3 different types of “ball” mounts here. Large single, triple, and smaller quads. Are the barrels of the triple indicitive of ion cannons I wonder? or maybe all the ball mounts are ion cannons?

If they are not ion cannons, but instead Turbolasers, how do they compare to those triple 175 teraton turrets here and on the Procursator. I always wondered at how the octuple turrets can seem so much smaller but would be implied to output more (like 240-320 teratons each).

I’ll confess to finding this brute’s reactor dome somewhat jarring from a few angles, but the expanded yet streamlined dorsal superstructure & staggered ‘broadside’ turret strips are quite neat. Plus, gotta love those ball turrets. I take it the hangar’s just big enough for a fistful of Lambdas?

Honestly I was just wondering where this baby even has its hangar?

Looks more like it needs a fighter screen provided from elsewhere like i.e. an accompanying Ton-Falk Escort Carrier or a Venator.
Or maybe just give it a few Raider-Corvettes as protection against dedicated bomber squadrons? Normal fighters probably can’t scratch it anyways if it hasn’t already sustained damage from enemy capitals.

Always love the Alliegence-class. Something about the fact that it’s so similar to the classic ISD yet has its own role in the battlefield. This affection is hard to describe.

So Fractal how would the Allegiance fare against the Compellor?

Completely different ships. Allegiance is 2.2 km long, and is a glorified ISD. Compellor is a 4.X km Star Cruiser, probably at least twice as long, and multiple times the mass.

Maybe 2-3 Allegiances could take on a Compellor evenly.

Fractal I just notice that some of the quad medium turbolasers in the ship trenchs are on the side instead of upside like on the Dreadnaught frigate which is interesting but I wonder why though like better arcs or something?

It’s great to see this ship getting updates, I’ve always liked it. I hope it can be made canon again.

Venator Maybe? or another Clone Wars Era Star Destroyer?
Ever going to make one of those?

The Victory and the Imperator were present during the clones wars, so technically, he already has.

As far as I know Fractal already stated he’ll make the Venator SD eventually and I am certainly looking forward to that one as it is my favorite ship design-wise.

As for Clone Wars-era stuff, the Victory I-class, Imperator/Imperial I-class Star Destroyer and the Legator-Battleship are technically ships originating in the Clone Wars.
Fractal just didn’t present them in Republic colors (and in all honesty Imperial coloration is easier and faster to portray than the more sophisticated red-white stuff of the Republic).
