it needs more guns

It has, so I think, four quad turbolasers and a few point defense turrets. These four Turbolasers had probably a somewhat similar Firepower to an Imperial 2 class Star Destroyer broadside, and those were made to vapotize entire Capital Ships. And if my head-canon is somewhere near the real, those were only patrol ships that would hunt down some pirates or a few Rebels. With this purpose the Turbolasers would be enough to strike fear in the most eyes and let them concede.

Really like the look, but it is sad we don’t get a size comparison.

Bit of an odd design, reminds me of a tiny Imperial ship I’ve only seen in Empire at War. Makes it kinda hard to imagine this thing is about half the size of an ISD 😛

Closer to 1/3rd the size of an ISD, but yeah, o thought it would be a lot smaller than 600 meters long, for some reason thought it would be closer to 200-300 meters but it’s whatever.

i think the armement is my biggest cocern, i dont see any turbolasers, just what looks to be either laser cannons or ion cannons, i deffinitely see a few laser cannons on the thing. Maybe the main guns are turbolasers, but if thats the case then i think its weird for the empire to put them in a ball like this. my guess is that these are either heavy lasercannons or light turbolasers. i think a third the size of a isd is fine for a frigate, but frigutes generally act in a formation, or at least in fairly large… Read more »

They’re heavy turbolasers, they just happen to be in ball mounts. It’s been described down thread.

So Fractal since the Fulgor’s power generator is mostly use for the engines to have great speed does that mean it have weak shielding?

What’s the Fulgor’s pedigree (as in, what company manufactured it)? It certainly has a different look than most of the KDY stuff. Is it possible that this is the “big Corellian ship” Han Solo was bragging about outrunning? No one has ever done anything with that throw-away line, but this ship would seem to fit the bill. As a dedicated pursuit ship, I don’t imagine outrunning one would be a mean feat, and 618 meters is certainly “bit” compared to something the size of the Falcon.

Thoughts?

By away Fractal why is the first picture look blurry?

@Fractalsponge an odd request, but have you ever thought about doing the Victory II-class frigate from the original Battlefront 2? It have been my favorite frigate for a while, but the general low level of detail in the game and lack of further sources is a little disappointing.

My inner symmetry addict keeps nudging that scanner dish onto the centerline, but this is nonetheless the Imperial Starfleet’s most charmingly compact hotrod reconwedge, cybernetic hands down. And for the record, ball turrets make anything bigger than a Nebulon look good.

So Fractal since you have made the Harrower class Dreadnought for the essenital guide to warfare what is your thoughts on that ship?

I was looking at the engines and i realized, all 4 of the thrusters are the same, so why the cones around the 2 center ones? Wouldn’t removing those be beneficial, it would cut down on weight and make it even faster than before.

Mind you though, I love the design as-is, I’m just one for function over fashion.

Perhaps the cones are filled with gravitic and electromagnetic manipulation field generators for thrust vectoring?

They might also be more shield-friendly than the thruster nozzles themselves & thus lend an extra smidgen of protection.

Distinctly imperial, but a refreshing deviation from standard Star Destroyer design.
I’ve always wondered how that kind of spherical gun mount can work. Some BB8-like electromagnetic attraction with inductive power coupling? Or is it just my lack of imagination in regards to mechanical engineering?

PhantomFury

I would wager that it’s like the similar looking V-150 planet defender (Hoth ion cannon) which the cross section indicate electric arc coupler for powering the thing and traversing uses “repulsor pads” to elevate the sphere ever so slightly above the “cradle”

countvertex

I’m picturing a scene where that ion cannon delivers a full hit to the Fulgor.
Hopefully the Imperial engineers devised of a way to prevent all those guns drifting happily off into space…

PhantomFury

Heh, indeed, that might be quite a problem, wouldn’t it?

gorkmalork

Possibly there’s some kinda socket attachment concealed within warship-scale ball turret bases; those repulsor-pads might ‘simply’ be a workaround for V-150s & similar-ballpark planetary TLs’ sheer ludicrous bulk.

PhantomFury

Interesting possibility, perhaps something along the lines of the proposed robotic ball-and-socket joint.

It is feasible that they have an interior frame that connects to the hull. They could use the same system that the AT-TE’s ball turrets used.

how many tie fighters could it hold?

Very few of them like 1 light squadron since Fulgor’s interior is mostly engine for high speed since it is a pursuit ship.

May I ask Fractal when you updating these ships in 4K some of the lights are red so what function do they serve for or are they just for looks?

Chris Bradshaw

For some reason I always think that this thing is scaled as a corvette at first glance, but apparently it outmasses a Vindicator. I guess when the Empire wants to build an A-Wing, they decide to make it heavy frigate sized.

I find myself pondering the successful defection rate of Fulg crews who got the itch to pull a Rand Ecliptic (and managed to gank/contain their security wonks, natch). If you can outrun next to everything & soak up your average destroyer’s fire long enough to jump out…
