How big is it compared to the Acclamator?

More than 100 meters longer than an Acclamator. 880(?) v. 752

Random bit of obviously non-canon lore for ya folks Built in the waning days of the Old Republic and classed as a Star Destroyer during that period the Proclamator class Star Cruiser had been originally designed as a warship cousin of the Acclimator class assault ship. Unlike the Acclimator though it lacked the huge capacity for carrying troops and their supporting equipment and instead focused on anti-shipping firepower. Overshadowed by the introduction of the Imperator class and lacking the ‘taint’ of the Republic that saw the Venator class side-lined, due to its short service life with the Old Republic, the… Read more »

That’s generally pretty good. A couple of points for improvement: Fractal has stated that the Proclamator was the predecessor to the Acclamator, from which the Acclamator was developed. In Legends at least, a TIE/sa bomber squadron was 8 ships strong so as to fit their larger frames into a standard squadron hangar. There are 12 quad medium turbolaser turrets and 27 point defence turrets (each point defence turret being a heavy laser cannon turret mounted alongside a light turbolaser cannon). Those three points of research aside, this is well written and believable. I particularly like the bit about not it… Read more »

What are the stats of this ship? I can’t find any
Also would you, Fractal I mean, mind if I use this in a fanfic that I’m working on?

Length: 880m
Armament:
6×3 heavy turbolaser (40 teraton)
6×4 medium turbolaser (200 gigaton)
21 point defence turrets (heavy laser + light turbolaser combo)
Complement: 4 squadrons (48 fighters total)

Actually it has even more. I counted fast and loose.
The real armament is:

6×3 heavy turbolaser (40 teraton)
12×4 medium turbolaser (200 gigaton)
27 point defence turrets (heavy laser + light turbolaser combo)

I’m not certain if you’ve been asked this before, but have you ever considered making redesigns of the canonical star destroyer-type ships like the Victory I-II, Imperial I-II, Acclamator, Venator, etc? Every original creation I’ve seen from you appears to be far more sensibly designed than they were, with fewer glaring vulnerabilities and better turret layout (except for this one, for some reason. Why no superfiring dorsal batteries?). Hell, to my eyes this ship basically IS a redesigned Acclamator! Even if the answer is no, I’d still appreciate hearing your response. I’ve always loved your work, Fractal, every piece you… Read more »

He recently released a 4k Victory design and a bit further back was his Imperator-class Redux

Have you ever considered doing an Imperial-era Venator-class? Based on the very few images I’ve found, it doesn’t look half-bad in classic Imperial gray.

What are the weapons and specs on this bad boy? The hangars look like it’s designed for planetary assaults.

You guys do great work! You should render the mega-class star dreadnought (the Supremacy–Snoke’s ship)

A fractal redesign of the Eclipse (Eclipse III perhaps?) would be godly

So Fractal looking at your stardestroyer.net posts you found out about EckhartsLadder and his many ship vs videos including the Allegiance vs MC90. (which I agree with you saying it doesn’t work like that) But if you think that absurd that nothing when compare to the video which he compare the 2 First Order Resurgents against the freaking Executor!

Here the video I’m talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-X1hA2j5UM

The problem with this Eckhart fellow is that he has 300k subscribers, and some of his videos have over a million views. He is reaching a fairly wide audience of Star Wars fans, many of which are pretty young and impressionable, who will carry those ideas throughout his life. That’s a lot of brainbugs, and I wouldn’t be surprised if future EU comic/novel/game creators are among them. Someone ought to fill him in on the Curtis Saxton consensus before it gets too cringeworthy.

Hey Fractal I wonder if you are going do to something about this ship?

What is that

Love this design – a true multi-role heavy frigate, and mini-murderwedge.

I know the hangar arrangement is taken from the Rand Ecliptic – what do you think leads to this design, rather than the more typical axial position? Does it just have to do with the position of the reactor?

Look at the size difference between this thing and the ISD. Blimey. I never really compared the Acclamator to the ISD before. In AotC and The Clone Wars series we see Acclamators on the ground or in an atmosphere (like this: https://youtu.be/4ob3faux-T8?t=10s), which gives us a sense of their scale, and we can see that they’re big. But these pictures really drive home the point to me that the ISDs are effing massive. I bet the Rebels got their hands on a few Acclamators (or Proclamators) during the Galactic Civil War, perhaps early on, before the Mon Cal cruisers became… Read more »

Hey, Fractal, I’ve noticed several instances of people asking information that has been disclosed before (in this case, length/it’s relation to the Acclamator) so could you, perhaps in the future, add a description of the vessel in question in either the first WIP update or in the final product so there is a place we can point to when such questions are asked?

Daniel Shenise

Lovely vessel, but will it walk 500 miles and then walk 500 more?

Daib
Guest

The Old Republic sure does love its com-scan globes. Seeing it next to the Imperator is nice for getting a sense of scale. Tector next?

Zeitos

Wouldnt that be a Imperial Stardestroyer without the hangar space? I can imagine more interesting and creative stuff to come up.

gorkmalork

Eh, at least Tector has some onscreen precedent (i.e. one shot in ROTJ where the Falcon buzzes said ship’s ventral surface). Might be interesting to see how much extra firepower a gunboat-variant Impstar would pack.

STONEhenk
Guest
STONEhenk

A ISD1 counts 8 turrets with each 2 cannons of 175-TT (FractalStats, somewhere in the stardestroyer.net thread or the turret post). 16 x 175-TT makes 2800-TT. The Allegiance-class is roughly 2.6 Impstars in volume with a heavy weapon power-output (3x 720-TT HTL, 56x 175-TT HTL, 12x 175-TT ion) of roughly 5 times a ISD1. So a gunboat-variant can have almost 2 times as much firepower (when reactors scale linear)

Ryadra777
Guest

Actually it is 6 twins 175 tt heavy turbolasers that the Imperator 1 have, the other 2 turrets are the 175 tt heavy ion cannons.
This picture proves it:comment image

Speaking of Tector being the gunship to the Imperator, It does made me wonder what would the Gunship variant to the Proclamator be like?

Fantastic! I have awaited this beauty’s completion since you first posted that blocky version of it. The name is good.
What is the exact length?

Fractal for lead starship designer pls Disney!

StormCommando
Guest
StormCommando

Little edit: Fractal stated length was ~880m and output was ~1.5e24. And for anyone who’s interested, here is his description of the ship’s design lineage: “The Acclamator design took this as a starting point, swapped the reactor for something a lot lower powered but a lot cheaper and with a lot higher endurance, and started cutting away a lot of mass in terms of weapons, armor, and protected hull volume. That allowed them to drop a few main engines to maintain performance on a smaller and cheaper powerplant (and to further cut costs for numbers/expendability), and they used the internal… Read more »

Nice to see this done Although I wonder since the Imperator polygon count is 17 million what the polygon count of the Proclamator?

Love this design and I second the notion of making Fractal the official designer for new Star Wars-ship classes.
I wonder how many fighter squadrons this baby can field, one of each of the four hangar bays?

Also what is its full weapon layout? Can it battle other medium capital ships and fighters alike or is it more of a pure anti-Corvette/anti-Frigate vessel?

gorkmalork
Guest
gorkmalork

I seem to recall Fractal mentioning an average of 1 squad per bay in one of the earlier WIP threads. Since its main guns are roughly Impstar Deuce ballpark (40-teraton HTLs), it can certainly thrash things out with Dreadnaught/Vindicator/Immobilizer-tonnage vessels, and might be able to threaten Victories/Venators with a numerical advantage (i.e. 3-on-1).

Sephiroth0812
Guest
Sephiroth0812

The more I learn about this ship the more I like it. ^__^ When it can carry 4 fighter squadrons and is powerful enough to duke it out with Dreadnaughts and Vindicators evenly (an Immobilizer would stand no chance against a Proclamator due to its light weaponry and high energy drain) it is a very versatile ship. 3 of them being capable of taking on a Venator seems to be also plausible, as their 12 squadrons together could at least hold the Venator’s massive fighter complement off for a while and when the Proclamators manage to get into a position… Read more »

Disney should really hire you to design new ships for the movies. You are far more creative than ILM is in the new movies.
