Does this vessel have any sort of name or designation beyond Assault Transport? If not, perhaps it deserves one.

ATR-6 Gamma Assault Transport. Its from the 90s Star Wars combat flight simulator games X-Wing, TIE Fighter, X-Wing Vs TIE Fighter Rogue Squadron X-Wing Alliance Etc. There was a variant that was called the Beta ETR something or other…

Beta class ETR-3 escort transport.

Beastly-looking brick with snazzy upper hatches, punchy-looking thrusters, punchier-looking guns, and just enough radiator stub-fins to flow as a sci-fi craft. Not sure why it needs dorsal & ventral airlocks-one for cargo, one for deployment?

Fractal I just now realise that this Assault Transport is a mix of two gamma ships have the ATR-6’s weapons and a Assault shuttle’s size (Being 30 meters in length) and Spacetroopers complement.

Very cool! I have always wanted to do a physical model of this ship since the X-Wing/TIE games. This version looks very original Battlestar Galactica-y in these shots!

Right then i’l talk about the 4 vehicle designs and roles in Solo: A Star Wars Story. 1: TIE/rb heavy starfighter (Also known as the TIE Brute or Heavy TIE Fighter) just the less stupid, more boring version of the TIE Bizarro and meant to be well a heavy fighter. 2: AT-DT (All Terrain Defense Turret) look like a weird hybrid between the AT-ST and the AT-DP. Although this could be the predecessor to these two walkers and it was a self propelled artillery. 3: Y-45 Armored Transport Hauler (AT-Hauler) meant to carry light walkers or 2-M Hover Tank and… Read more »

the Arrestor design is based (or rather completely copied) from a very early star destroyer concept art.

And the guy who designed it is a part of my group on Facebook Preserve the Expanded Universe.

Oh man, X-Wing Alliance memories are commung up. Those were tough oponents, without a blindspot. It looks so good fractal, that I want a new X-Wing game to play

So Fractal what are those 8 small doors above the main door on each side of the ATR-6?

how many troops would this carry?

A platoon (40) of infantry, probably not enough internal volume for any repulsorlift armor.

Fractal you’re work is great and this is made my evening.
As to the debate to length, I always imagined that they were based on the Assault Shuttle and would be the same rough dimensions.

Thank you, it is awesome to see classic x-wing designs!

I wasn’t expecting to see this one Fractal but it is great nonetheless to see the ATR-6 like this. But there are 2 things I want to ask you about. 1. There no WIPs for the ATR-6 and I want to know why didn’t you include them? I think it is nice to some some WIPS because it show progress, how the details was created and to give the idea on how to created the model properly. 2. The size of the ATR-6 last time I check this transport was 45 meters in length but you version is smaller at… Read more »

About the size, it´s highly debatable in many ways anyway. Like we had with the executor, that was way to small in the beginning (8km) and what we have with MC80 cruisers aswell, it´s said that they are only 1200m long, but you can clearly see in RotJ that they are much bigger, even dwarfing ISDs. With the Movie Rogue One, we have even more proof that MC80s are bigger. The Profundity is 1200m long and there are scenes where you can compare Y-Wings flying close to the Profundity and a Y-Wing flying close to a Liberty type MC80 in… Read more »

Nice work, but I think the fins might look more Imperial if they were textured as TIE-style radiators.

And GonKar Ship Works probably wasn’t willing to pay the licensing fees…

Oh, hell yes.

These and the Escort Transports were a huge pain.

Five thumbs up for doing another design from the classic X-wing games! I remember these transports as tough opponents. Looks like this is still valid.
Just for nostalgic reasons: could you one day do a panel showing all your designs from those games side by side?
