So I was curious as to what the armament was for this was and I did some math and here is the number of missile tubes and turrets for those that are interested.

66 tubes up front by the nose in sets of 3 with 33 on each side

608 tubes in the middle in sets of 8 with 304 on each side

16 turrets up front in between each set of missile tubes with 8 on each side in batteries of 4.

32 turrets in the back by the bridge with 16 on each side grouped in batteries of 4

Do the missile silos on the front open up like on the Victory?

From the distance it almost looks like the Munificent-class’s bridge. Interesting change!

I think that if you shortened the front triangle on the ship by half it would look a lot better…

Overall I like the concept, but the entire length of the ship is too long……

Great Job

Definitely like this bridge tower more. 👍

Looking menacing. I assume this would need a couple of munitions carriers for support to keep it in action for any length of time.

do we have any designs of munition carriers?

Fractal has designed two logistics ships, the Altor class and the Contentor class, but both are multi purpose ships, used for refueling and presumably carrying all the standard logistical support needed to keep ships and their crews going. Any freighter of large enough size can carry munitions, but perhaps there might be a dedicated design used to carry munitions specifically, and capable of loading them into launchers like these. Otherwise it would probably be very time consuming to reload the launchers.

I picture munitions loaders on Tomahawk-cruise-missile launcher-ship

Much, much larger missiles involved. It’s a problem for the US Navy today, with much smaller scale missiles. https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/navy-ships/a27205/navy-reload-missile-silos-at-sea/

See [Cruisemissile assault craft] Wookieepedia

How does that apply here?

Munitions loaders I picture what it may look like something similar to the cruise missile assault craft

The cruisemissile assault craft is a one-man air support platform, according to the Wookieepedia write-up. How does that apply to reloading heavy missiles on something the size of the Tyrant?

Yes but using the frame as an base we load the munitions and ordnance fast. Yes I know it not really big and large, but Tyrant doesn’t need to be loaded up on X-W size missiles all the time. Just at least something out there that might look ,and nearly act, like it will do the job

Too small for the job. Even the smaller missiles for this would be akin to large ballistic missiles in naval usage. It would make more sense to have something in the Contentor size range, or a little smaller, that could approach the ring and load 2-8 at a time.

Not a fan of design but that command tower, marvelous, just marvelous!

I know the ventral hull is unfinished and all, but you think we could get a better angle on it? I’m curious about the overall lines of the ship.
