Fractal just wondering could you make a Star Battlecruiser variant of the Compellor?

Here my take on it, replace some of the oct 40 TT turrets with heavier cannons like single 720 TT turrets (Non-ball mind you) as primary, triple 240 TT turrets as secondary and possibly few heavy ion cannons like the quad 240 TT ball turrets.

Also some hanger bays would be remove and be rearrange to be more fighter focused, have the bigger power reactor and the name will be Repellor since well Battlecruisers tends to repel enemy Cruisers.

What do you think?

Wonder what the acceleration of the Compellor, it is something like 3000g or higher?

How well would this thing fare against a Bellator or Impellor?

Impellor’s basically the carrier variant of this ship, and as such trades a lot of firepower for hangar space-not really suited to slugging it out with a more direct combat-specialized sibling. Bellator, as a 7.4(?) km. battlecruiser, boasts a marked edge in tonnage, guns & shield strength, and may be quick enough to keep up with either -pellor variant.

Snazzy amber engine hue, and I dig that spinal superstructure & turret row.

So Fractal what is your thoughts on hyperdrives classes like the class 1 on the Venator and the class 2 on the Imperator?

Considering that the Imperial sourcebook indicate that “entire planets […] throughout their history did not expend as much power […] in one hyperspace jump,” for the hyperdrive, one could imagine that Class 1 would simply be far too energy extensive.

The Republic did field probably ten thousands of Venators though but maybe because they are smaller than an ImpStar they could still field the Class 1 without much problems?

If I remember correctly both variants of the Victory-class SD also had a Class 1 hyperdrive just like the Venator.
Both ships are smaller than 1.200 meters though so maybe size is an indicator?
Is the Venator the biggest design to feature a Class 1 hyperdrive?

Acclamators are written to possess a 0.6 Class which would make them almost as fast as the Millennium Falcon. Wat?

Acclamator’s blazing hyperdrive speed could be explained by the fact that its hyperdrive takes up the entire “fin” that is nestled between the sublights.

Oh? I stand corrected.

I believe that the reason for why larger Imperial warships have Class 2 rather than Class 1 is because they simply do not need to be fast. I’m basing this of the fact that the Imperial ships that did have Class 1 were primarily patrol ships.

Do you plan to do any ground vehicle in the future (except 4k updates, of course) ?

Can you add those ships: Compellor-class Star Cruiser, Impellor-class Fleet Carrier , Velox-class Star Frigate, Praetor-class Star Battlecruiser, Legator-class Star Dreadnought, Bellator-class Star Battlecruiser , Wrath Star Dreadnought, ? Star Battlecruiser, Aiwha-class Star Corvette,

Seems like most of the bigger ships in that list would fit better in their own lineup. Assuming, of course, Fractal even has the time/inclination.

Have you ever thought of making a massive windows theme with all of your pictures?

What is the purpose of the undercut on both sides of the bow? Is it aesthetic or is it functional?

Good question. Functional reasons besides maaaybe ‘improved tractor-beam arc’ escape me.

You know I wonder how powerful would a Gunship variant of this ship be?
