I’d love to see this thing face off against a scorpion or something like that, or an imperial field marshal being a blitzing bad*ss with a squad of these, like a star wars Rommel.

Did you get any inspiration for the Sabre from the Republic’s TX-130?

Kal Skirata

Yes, mostly the TX-130, although fractal did say he used the Imperial 2-M repulsortank for inspiration as well.

Could have used a tertiary small blaster cannon for better anti-infantry performance.

should have used this as its main line battle tank

Technically, this is an antipersonnel tank for infantry support, escort, fast attack, and scouting, but I have had that same thought in the past. This is one of my favorite hovertank designs, along with Fractal’s Broadsword and Scythe, and I have often thought about augmenting its armament for a MBT role, although now I think that the Broadsword fills that role quite nicely and the Sabre fits in well as a light tank.

Holy hell dude! I love it! The sabre tank was one of my least fav ground vehicles of the Republic, and the Empire repainting it and calling it a day seemed very lazy. This **Actual!** turret looks so awesome I love it! I wish you got more recognition for this awesome work!

One day the Emperor said, “Build for me a tank with a huge freaking MG-42 on the roof, and it shall be chambered for 20mm.”

Only 20mm? Are you tapped? That turret is a 76mm at least. Imagine a 76mm gun at 1,200rpm?

is this the 2-M it looks closer to the 2-M saber tank then the TX-130 saber tank.

Now this looks much more like a tank. I’d personally remove the central gun and just make the whole part a swivable twin barrel cannon, though.

It’s missing it’s missile launchers, aside from that I really am torn on the turret /= the turret itself is cool but I am just not sure it fits with the saber-tank.

I think it would be interesting to see different variants of it with different turrets kind of like the modular tank you did a while back. Since the original tank could swap out it’s turret for a 2 different ones.

I really do love the design overall though, your work never disappoints.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I like the turret now it just had to grow on me because I am used to the smaller turret I’ve seen on it for years.

Could the Empire swap out the side guns for other things you think? Like missile pods? Small ion cannons? Gatling guns? This is really cool, I like what you do.

dude this is insane this is kind of off topic but the at-se is my favorite wacker legions canon and fanon. can you make a elite version of it?

But does it fit in the small sidebays of the Chi?

I don’t know if I am feeling this one so much. The original SW Battlefront TX-130s looked great but I can’t get over the fact that the roof turret on this looks like a Fez hat. Personally I much prefer the original manned turret.

Also here is a link for the cutaway on wikipedia that shows the missile launchers in the skids.

Although I don’t really miss those as putting missile launchers a meter or less above the ground isn’t very practical.

Well it’s a hovertank. Terrain clearance for ordnance tubes shouldn’t be an issue when you can adjust your altitude with a dial. I do like the look of the pintle gun though.

So the length is either 8.2 meters or 10 meters.

And you will create the design of the technology of the First Order?

He said he’s not interested in this sequel Trilogy age but doesn’t mean he will not do it on commission

Neat take on the design, though I noticed the repulsor skiffs are rigidly fixed to the mais chassis instead of being on a pivot to change its angle to maximize its maneuverability, a feature that is kinda nice when you see it in motion.

What’s the armament? I’m assuming two laser cannon on the sides, but what’s in the turret?

Gadji
Guest

Maybe a heavy laser gun? …

Very nice. I wasn’t a fan of the original Sabertank, but you have an absolute gift for turning the Meh of the EU into something awesome.

And now you’ve filled your BMD-2 org chart slot. What’s left? A BTR-70 maybe?
