Love the model but isn’t the lancer supposed to be armed only with quad laser cannons? That was its weakness, limited armament specialized for anti fighter intercept with no capability against larger vessels.

Yet ANOTHER truly outstanding ship design and again excellent engine after glow effects! I especially enjoy how you can see the “star/sun glow effect” on the left aft 3/4 view of the Lancer Capital Ship! This is to drool !

I used one of your models for a picture I made. Thank you! Can be found in link.

The skewed angle seen in the 7th picture really give you a sense of a nimble warship banking away to intercept a swarm of alphabet fighters!

If you have the time, could you do a render with this Lancer beside the Velox? I am trying to picture the dimensions in my head, but can’t …

Lancer 250 meters length, Velox 320 meters length.

I think a comparison with that Container Transport would be good too. I could see that being a useful paring in areas where pirate activity is slightly more likely but not so common as to require bigger escorts or a convoy.

This is a very nice design. I’ve always thought Rebel fighters better look out when they go up against a Lancer–essentially the B-29 of Imperial cruisers. Love your updates to it, as well. Good choice for a project!

In the old Flight Simulation games like X-Wing vs TIE Fighter or X-Wing Alliance the Lancer was one of the biggest nightmares the player could run into if they weren’t sitting in a TIE Defender or a B-Wing because it would greet you with a storm of Quad Energy bolts that went through shields like butter. TIE Defender and B-Wing only gave you better survival chances due to better agility or tanking options.

I really like this interpretation. Looks way more like a fast attack corvette as the original design. Slow ships can not hunt starfighters. Looks more aggressive too.

I would love to see what Howard Day could do with this.

Nice to see this done, but I wonder why the title is just called Lancer instead of Lancer class Corvette or something?

Praise the Omnissiah! The guns are symmetrically mounted. I know its bizarre that I get bothered by such things, but I do. Excellent model! Three cheers for Fractalsponge.

I spoke too soon…That midship gun is off centre. The omnissiah is displeased, quotas will fall short this year and I shall be recycled into a servitor.

This is cool! So, primary role is anti fighter correct?

It’s literally it’s one and only role.

LTL can still threaten other corvettes.

Lancer-I (all quad lasers, crap engines, crap shields) was a dedicated anti-fighter vessel which didn’t fulfill the fleet escort role the Imperial Navy needed it to. This is Lancer-II, Fractal’s massively upgraded multi-role version capable of engaging enemy fighters at longer ranges, keeping up with the ships it’s meant to be escorting, taking more of a beating, and taking on sloops and smaller corvettes with its LTLs. Its primary role is still – as you said – anti-fighter, but it is no longer incapable of doing anything else. This was my inference from conversations on the two WIP pages. Would… Read more »

My personal view is that the original design was a pre-production version that got forced onto the battlefield before the production lines were secured.
