General thought on all your work…Have you considered some basic stats the ships…length, crew complement, number of what types of weapons, embarked fighters/shuttles/walkes/etc…

By the way, Fractal, I know this is intended for pre-production Acclamator design, but I noticed that this has a Venator-inspired bridge with viewport instead of the Acclamator windowless structure. Was this more to the point of a feature that was removed in the “finalization” of the Acclamator and reintroduced into the Venator at a later stage, or do you always wish Acclamators to have viewport all along?

It’s a frigate based off of an Acclamator, not an Acclamator preliminary.

I’m rather curious as to the ship armaments compared to a Victory class Star Destroyer, as it’s clearly an upgrade compared to one so my guess would be better point defense weapon systems.

It’s an older ship, pre Clone Wars, the Victory would be newer. The idea is the acclamator class was developed using this hull as a basis. We can see 48 MTL in a dozen quad turrets, and 18 HTL in 6 triple turrets. I haven’t bothered to count out the twin heavy lasers as he is still detailing the hull. I *think* I see a port side tractor beam battery, which probably has a mirrored starboard battery.

I forgot to mention the ship is nearly 100 meters shorter than a Victory SD, and I think the volume is less, not to mention that most of the additional length over its ‘child’ the Acclamator almost 100 meters shorter) are in those fantail decks over the engines.

Right, between likely-heavier HTL mounts & its nasty antiship missile magazine the Vic would handily edge out one of these in a slugging match. You’d probably need 2 or 3 to contend with said destroyer, though it might have a solid edge WRT sublight acceleration. Come to think of it, these frigates might’ve come in handy running down & harrying targets for Vic-centric squadrons.

I’m trying to figure out either a fighter or shuttle complement for it, and possibly how many troops it might carry. Bigger than an Acclamator, but clearly laid out as a fighting ship rather than a troop transport, maybe a third of the volume in comparison to its offspring? What do you think?

While this is more of a ship of the line rather than a carrier, what sort of troop compliment and fighters or shuttles might it carry? Over 800 meters is a lot of ship.

Considering the quality of Fractal’s models the decision makers at Disney/Lucasfilm should seriously consider hiring him to make the new models for both the New Republic/Resistance and the First Order.
The Mandator Mk IV-“Dreadnought” in TLJ looks butt ugly (like a metallic pizza slice) and Snoke’s massive “Boomerang” ship his no better.
On the Resistance’s side the “Raddus” looks like a toned-down version of the Viscount-class from Legends and the other ships are totally forgettable design-wise.

I particularly hate the B/SF-17 Resistance Bomber. It looks like a cordless drill flying through space. Also, the name B/SF- 17 Starfortress is totally unimaginative. They are, essentially, copying the name of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress used by the US during the Second World War. Just lazy writing and piss-poor design.

I think the worst offender in that respect is the shuttle Finn and Rose flee the wreckage of the supremacy in. The xi-class shuttle or something… probably one of the most ugly design to come out of the Star Wars franchise as a whole.

Stratofortress was the namegrab

And frankly the Stratofortresses were much faster at a comparable 288 MGLTs atmospheric

Ooh, ST design-salt chain. TBH, Raddus & the Nebulon descendant(s?) accompanying it seemed decent-looking enough-too bad nuthin’ but a straight-line Doom Cruise(R) and admittedly nifty hyperkamikaze finish was in the cards for either. Ditto for the latest-gen A-wings, which didn’t exactly reinvent any wheels but at least visually flow a bit better than the T-70 jigsaw-snub. That ‘bunker-buster’ corvette, however, laterally overbuilt the kriff outta its CR90 base plan. Oh, and the peeps downthread have a real point WRT TFA & TLJ’s parade of bland-as-Sithspew transports/shuttles/private yachts. Would it have Darth Mauled the Resistance’s budget to slap Rose’s cloaks on… Read more »

Cannot wait for orthos! This is shaping up to be my favourite ship of yours, after the Assertor. Also, the surface is a lot more ‘greebly’ and complex than what I originally expected from the first WIP. I guess that comes with it being a frigate-scale ship and all. Your designs are getting more complex and detailed in general, and this one is testament to that.

you continue your impressive work and i am so glad for the opportunity to see it unfold…

Seen before on one or two of the other designs, but still I like the sensor domes being half recessed into the hull. Clearly offers better protection. I wonder what reasons the Empire could have to change this on later ships.
Maybe bad HoloNet connection…

So is that rear aperture a shuttle hangar or a waste disposal door like on the Imperial SDs? I love the level of details in these models.
