Mr. Fractal, Have to say this is a very cool and logical design. a slightly up-scaled version of the ISDII with a heavy emphasis on slugging broadside with someone. I would think this would be a mainstay in any battle group. I noticed looking at the turrets on this ship and they contain 4 cannons. I was comparing it to my favorite render you have done to date, the Bellator, and that ship has 2 cannons turrets. is this an oversight? a function of redoing the render, or on purpose? Being the Bellator is a significantly heavier armed ship and… Read more »

Can somebody enlighten me as to why star destroyers are almost always weak on the ventral side? Not such a big deal if operating as part of a large fleet, but when operating independently this seems silly.

I assume your talking about weapons load out, which there’s a few reasons it’s not really necessary. First, is that the SSD’s and larger can actually maneuver fairly quickly- for ships of their size, and for how quickly an opposing vessel can close to attack range. Second, it seems some how (even magically,) that ships tend to operate relative to the planetary plane of whatever system they happen to be in. They’re almost always operating on a similar orientation. Third, the hull’s shape means that they can fire on targets that are abeam, and a few degrees to ventral. Finally,… Read more »

I always wonder if the Shockwave from Darksaber was a Allegiance?

If the only criteria for the thing was the ability to knock out a Victory-I in a single volley, the Allegiance should qualify pretty handily.

Does this one have a spherical reactor?

Yes. It is buried a little deeper in the armored hull, but you can see it in the WIP 1 post.

For the love of god, can you PLEASE start keeping total weapon counts on you big ships? Working it out based on the end pictures you provide is all put impossible due to the scale and resolution limitations. Just from the current WiP, I see at least 20 quad LTLs on each side so far, and I’ve likely missed one or two simply because I can’t make it out. And trying to pick out the snub-fighter scale weapons is a lost cause.

I agree that the lack of weapons counts can sometimes be frustrating, but we must remember that this is Fractal’s hobby and he has every right to not spend his own time counting how many weapons he ended up placing on a big ship like this. You can open the images in new tabs (on a PC) by right-clicking and selecting “open link in new tab,” that hugely increases your ability to see everything. If you do this for WIP#1 as well, you can get a good count. Also, the quad turrets are medium turbolasers. I count at least 87… Read more »

Your right to remind us that it’s a hobby for Fractal and we probably shouldn’t get too anoying. On the other hand, I would be surprised to find that Fractaldoesn’t have a notebook or something with all of those details written out before he starts work on a design. Fractal’s work is just too detailed. I mean, *way* to detailed.

I’ve asked before. He works on commission; pay his rates for a project that size and he’ll do it.

A small short snippet of the basic dimensions, reactor output, tonnage, and weapon count would be great for EACH of these great ships.

thank you

I know that this is work in progress, but it feels like it’s done. The detail is just perfect👌💯

It’s been long since I’m wondering what these quad cannons are: point-defense? Turbolasers? What exactly are they?

Ryadra777

Quad medium turbolasers

eliteplayergg

he should also add the ion cannons in the front

Daib

Just because they’re in ball mounts doesn’t mean they are ions. I think Fractal said that they were turbolasers in the past, and I expect him to slot them in when he’s ready.

StormCommando

Does the Fractal Allegiance even have ion cannons? I don’t recall any mention of them but I might be wrong

DanielShenise

The lighting set you have for this is as close to perfect as you’ve done. There’s enough shadow to show details and depth but not so much it obscures things. Please don’t tinker with it.

Hey Fractal great work as always. Would you ever consider designing your take on the Turbulent-class Star Destroyer?

HanlanasLTU
Guest

Hey Fractal, I got a idea for you, are you fancy building Dominance Star Destroyer, its concept you can find in Google, but you are best on making Star Wars Ships redesign. So, if you will find some free time, meaby take a look of this.

Ryadra777
Guest

I suppose you mean this:comment image

As for it’s design doesn’t look interesting for Fractal to design it.
It just look like a shorter winged version of the Vengeance.

HanlanasLTU

Well, where do you know that Fractal doesn’t interested in design like this ? Are you expert, I was just saying idea….

Ryadra777

Fractal said on his Personal Commissions “I will only take projects that are interesting.”

Those main batteries makes me all giddy with joy!

Bob

The broadside batteries are actually secondary batteries. Her main batteries will be 3 axial ventral mounted 720 TT single barrel turrets. I believe her main and broadside batteries can all be fired forward simultaneously.

PhantomFury
Guest

I’d imagine so, since the Imperial design philosophy would account for maximum forward firing arc.

She’s looking amazing, i’m surprised that the broadside heavy turbo’s are not octuple mounts, I assume they are just a more powerful quad mount, this not needing the 8-gun mounts of smaller ships? And yeeesh! All that point defence! That’s going to be hell!

Ryadra777
Guest

The Allegiance’s Quads are more powerful at 175 teratons per shot. While the Imperator’s Octuples are 40 teratons per shot.

Steve
Guest

ah hah! Makes sense 🙂 And these are the same turrets mounted on the Bellator and friends I assume.

Ryadra777
Guest

No the Bellator’s, Assertor’s and Procurator’s quads are 240 teratons per shot.

Steve

Sweet Emperor…gotta ask, where ya getting these numbers?

I know this is a stupid question here; but when you say per shot, do you mean each individual barrel or all the barrels firing together? So for the Allegiance’s quads, is each barrel of the quad capable of outputting 175 teratons per individual shot or is it all 4 barrels of the quad firing together at 43.75 teratons each to equal the 175??

STONEhenk
Guest
STONEhenk

Each barrel outputs 175 teraton.

For example the Imperial/Imperator star destroyer:
The ISD1’s primary armament are dual 175 teraton. 2×175= 350 teraton for a single turret.
The ISD2’s primary armament are octuple 40 teraton. 8×40= 320 teraton for a single turret.

This is going to be so cool when it’s finished. The level of detail here is amazing. And all that point defense! I imagine that thing would be pretty terrifying for an X-wing pilot who got too close to it.

Have you made any significant changes to the general shape?
