Hey Fractal at some time in the future I would love to see your imagining of the Golan III defense platform.

Neat, utilitarian-looking mini murderwedge. I’m liking the bow antennae & bridge-tower PD turrets.

Wasn’t this one the baby which could be easily mass-produced like the CIS-ships during the Clone Wars and everytime the Empire couldn’t spare a Star Destroyer they send one or two of these?

I always love the discussion here! Although I would like to ask, where does one get sources for, say, the weapon count? I notice Valoren mentioning that this starship, in particular, got: “4 HTLs, 11 quad-TLs and 10 twin-laser cannons,” a fact that has been stated by Factalsponge himself by stating it got 4 HTLs in several places. But yet the wiki states that it has: “25 LTLs, 20 Quad LTLs, 10 point-defense lasers cannons, and 20 point-defense light ion cannons.” Not to point fingers or accuse anyone, but can someone clear up this inconsistency for me? Thanks!

Edit: I just occurred to me that the references may have been referring off the pictures presented here.

I just counted the guns on the hull, simple as that.

Ah, alright, thanks for the confirmation on the factoid.

Don’t forget the 24 concussion missile tubes. It’s got 12 on either side.

Hey awesome job to btw. Do you plan on doing any other EAW ships or even the Gozanti Cruiser? That cruiser is so customizable, and had different variations in the star wars universe.

I would dearly love to see you do up the Imperial TIE-carrying version of the Gozanti from the Rebels cartoon.

You think this would have been the ship used instead of the Acclomator in Eaw for a imperial ship that size.

Apparently there was a space combat-rated Acc variant Fractal’s in the process of rendering; that thing might’ve retained enough thrust/shielding/punch to edge out most other frigate designs. Plus, there is the ‘ship peeps recognize from films’ factor.

Isn’t this version of Vindicator a little bit overgunned for Star Wars ship? It should have less weapon than dreadnoughts as I remember but it have more. Are dreadnought’s guns just “heavier” versions?

Valoren

The dreadnought has 6 HTLs, 14 quad-TLs, 16 twin-laser cannons and a missile battery, while the Vindicator has only 4 HTLs, 11 quad-TLs and 10 twin-laser cannons.

You do know that the Vindicator also have not just 1 but 2 missile batteries on both the ship’s middle trenches right?

This is my favorite Imperial Ship. Ships in the 600m have guns that just “look” the right size to my eyes. Speaking of guns, what would the rough difference in output would you say be between the quad turbolasers and heavy single turbolasers used here be? like 2xQTL to 1x HTL ?
