It brings joy to this old Star Wars fan heart whenever I see any of your wonderful works.

So Fractal since you said this new Bellator have a reactor of 40-50+ ISDs (4-5e26W+) (100-125 Petatons) it made me wonder what the reactor of the Praetor?

love the Bellator. but the Secutor is my favorite one. also, is there a place i can see what your going to make next or do you just go with the flow?

Speaking of armament layout and possible other stats, is there a sort of framework how to estimate what a hull of certain size can accommodate? Can a stronger reactor compensate for a lesser number of individual turrets and/or cannons? I recently had to come up with stats for a fanon Star Dreadnought of the Republic for a roleplay, using the Veragitor-class made by Jeroenimo as a visual base. The values I came up with are as thus: Stats: Ship Type: Star Dreadnought Length: 8500 meters Width: 2000 meters Height: 780 meters Crew: 65000 personnel Troops: 12000 Soldiers Cargo Capacity: 72000… Read more »

imo its lacking alot since is 8.5km

That’s way too underpowered IMO, take three ISD II and they have more firepower, I’d even say two ISD II have more. But in saying that, the ISD II is Increadibly OP for its size.

Figured something along those lines. I guess these values are more in line with a ship around 2.500 meters in length rather than a 8500 meter one. Perhaps I should use the Legator as a reference for the overall armament numbers?

Sweet sithspit is that dorsal superstructure shaping up neatly. Any plans to tweak the squared-off/trapezoid-capped portion near its bow?

What are the outputs on the new-looking two barrel Turbolasers?

This looks very promising! As always I’m amazed about the quality of detail and the time these projects are finished – would take me years and wouldn’t look half as good. Still I managed to finalize something recently and once the Bellator is finished (and you should get bored) consider the following ship to be on my wishlist: https://countvertex.tumblr.com/

Nice. But this ship is even easier for a A-wing to crash into.

Huh, never thought of Carrack having that big of a viewport…but considering the scale, I guess it truly is massive.

Viewports have been getting bigger as a trend. Just look at how absurdly large the windows are on the Type 45 destroyers and Queen Elizabeth class carriers. That being said, didn’t Fractal already do a conceptual redesign of the Carrack role into the Velox?

CRMcNeill

The Velox doesn’t preclude the existence of the Carrack. The original source for the Carrack also mentions a recon modified light cruiser, which could just be a modified Carrack, or something like the Velox. In fact, both could exist, with the Velox being a replacement / upgrade for the aging Recon Carrack.

The Type 45 is still the best guided missile destroyer in the world though, by far.

Sure, the Darings are fine AAW ships, but I imagine that the South Koreans are laughing at them for only having 48 VLS cells compared to the Sejong’s 128.

Yeah, the west really dropped the ball on replacing Harpoon, which was okay in the 80s… maybe. LSRAM should be pretty nifty whenever that comes around, but the Russians have BrahMos today. While it probably wouldn’t be that politically feasible, I kinda wish that NATO fleets would look towards procuring Hsiung Feng 3 in the meanwhile, which seems to be the best ASM built by the free world. Since the Koreans don’t have that many hulls and a lot of missions to potentially conduct, it makes more sense for them to make the tradeoff for a hefty missile load, although… Read more »

This would seem to run counter to the Carrack’s design principle of toughness by compartmentalization. I always figured that the cockpit canopy-looking front end was composed of flat-plate sensor arrays and/or shield projectors

Amazing as always! Is it new that there is a gravity wall generator dome on the ship or was it already planned?

Something occurred to me. You have produced a number of these models with the engines under power. what we have zero models doing…. firing weapons. How cool would that be to see these big behemoths firing main weapons… and firing broadside weapons… and defending against fighters with AA firing away making a cloud of bolts…

PhantomFury

I dunno, I’d just find that distracting in a still image, like look at the Lucasarts commissioned pic of an Assertor-class doing BDZ, it just have a rain of bolts that is a bit visually messy (as cool as it was). Now if it’s a video, that could be interesting.

I find myself dunno-ing your dunno: time it just right, and a Bellator pic lit up by the fiendish emerald backwash of a simultaneous half-broadside could be a real keeper. ‘Course, replicating the tracers from all those barrels seems like quite the rate-hike-worthy chore, much less *animating* said conflagration.

this is awesome 😀 But..the point defences on the entirity of that Procursator class ship are probably just what’s dotted along the superstructure that we’re seeing here on the Bellator :p She’s gonna have LOT of guns :p It would be a horror to fly though!

Turret count so far, for those who are interested:

PD turrets: 170
Quad Medium Turbolaser turrets: 74
Octuple Heavy Turbolaser barbettes: 8
Twin Ultraheavy (I’m no good at estimating muzzle energy) turrets: 5 (or 7, depending on whether or not those ones on the edge of shot in bellator19 are Twin Ultraheavies)

I really want to see the process that goes into modelling all this! Can we get a timelapse of a scratch build one day?

Nice a gravity well generator and judging from it’s size it is Immobilizer sized.
So how many more gravity wells are there going to be Fractal?

Steve
Guest
Steve

We dunno if that is a Grav generator, but it would make sense, the Bellator’s got all that extra power and a higher tactical and strategic speed thanks to its dual reactor setup, so it would make sense that a gravity well generator or two would be fitted to stop someone from doing a runner when you jump into the system

When there’s more light turbolasers and quad laser mounts defending a single section of your hull than on the entirity of a Lancer class frigate..the point defence is very very real. And it is terrifying! Amazing amazing work and detail, just jawdropping attention to detail as always! 🙂

That’s just perfection. Love the high detail turret in particular.

Are those totally new turbolaser turrets?

I think they are. They look to be a lot bigger than any of the previous turrets of this style.
