it just feels like this is the perfect ship to take over the Arquitens-class Light Cruiser place. it dosent have those expose engines and bridge

According to Wookiepedia, there should be nine gun turrets on this ship, but I can only find eight.
Is Wookiepedia wrong, has Fractalsponge made a mistake, or am I just missing a turret?

Gunna sound dumb, but I’m going to rebuild this in Minecraft. It’s something I do, and you’re builds are by far the best source of inspiration when it comes to Star Wars!
If you want to know what I’m talking about, just look up my name.

What is the list of armaments for this ship?

You probably already caught it but I just noticed there’s a clipping error under the bridge section in the last image–the light source is shining through.

A fantastic update for an already fantastic design. This beauty truly deserved a 4k remake.

My favorite of your corvette designs. I hope they make this canon again. It would’ve been really cool to see one of these over Scarif, or alongside the Arquitens-class ships in Rebels.

I didn’t realize that space under the bow was a hangar. That’s cool. I’d assumed that was just a cargo bay for storing stuff confiscated off smugglers…

Huh I just notice that there a docking bay at the back of the bridge but I wonder why it is there?
It is right here near the big antenna:comment image

Probably so people could get on and off the ship… 😉

Forgot to mention 1 fighter squadron = 12 fighters

In the last image, the second fighter’s panel looks opaque. Is it meant to look that way? Fantastic work as always; the deployment of fighters and dropships looks superb.

I’d bet $5 the render wasn’t quite finished, or it just didn’t complete in that area. Happens to me all the time, especially where there’s big lighting contrasts and generally close to a deadline.

It’s reflecting the bright hull panels behind and to the left. 😀

Howie Day? THAT Howard Day who created the legendary Legacy class? If true I simply need to ask you if there’s a chance to see an up to date version of that beauty. I love that ship but from today’s point of view it lacks some details.

Now I’m confused. In the old version the hangar was slanted upwards but in this case it appears to be parallel with the trenches.

Sweet, eyeball launch. Those bow-and-ventral hangar panels seem quite efficient.

You know I wonder how do you pronounce Vigil?

How fast is this ship in relation to others?

IIRC, this one was intended to run down light transports & fellow corvettes like the original trilogy’s CR90. Not the fastest thing Fractal’s whipped up, but handily capable of keeping up with the Falcon or most fighters at sublight. No clue WRT hyperdrive, though.

I imagine it would make an effective convoy escort, too. Fighters and light guns to deal with Rebel fighters, and heavy guns for the corvettes.

Point in full there-they certainly strike me as faster (and possibly cheaper) all-rounders than a Nebulon or Imp-refitted Arquitens. Suppose said factors would also make ’em choice prizes for the odd cell of Rebel hijackers (or mutineers).

Seconded. I imagine this filling a role like our LCS was supposed to, with a modular hangar deck to support various compatible TIE designs, StromTrooper transports (perhaps with special operations teams on board), maybe a bunch of the modular missile pods as seen on other craft in the foremost compartment (that opens outward) to increase its anti-air or anti-ship capabilities as needed. Maybe even hosting swarms of Imperial spy craft for drop-off in far flung regions. This is by far my favorite ship by far, thank you for this.
