I also love this ship cause of the demolisher in droids! It looks really good so far. But I don’t think the radomes should be hemispheres like that when full spheres would allow the antenna to be larger and pointed in a bigger arc. Also the lower bridge looks like it goes too far forward? Anyway it is really great :3

Awesome! Do we have an official length for this thing yet?

I know in new canon that destroyers can operate in atmosphere with no problems but something this size should be able to actually land, right? Would make a nice little mobile base.

Considering Acclamators and Venators can land…I would think this and the Victory could land too. However the Vic may not be able to launch any of its complement as the hangar is on the bottom.

I’ve just noticed, but how come unlike this ship, almost all of your other death daggers have the bridge tower slanted down to match the angle of the dorsal hull? Are the decks in, an ISD for example, laid out sorta like an accordion or something?

I saw your amazing Teroch-class Mandalorian Cruiser. Can you do the Keldabe-class Battleship, once you’re finished with the Gladiator-class Star Destroyer, next?

The Gladiator is a cool ship and i’m glad you’re modeling it! I’ve always been a fan of the more obscure capital ships.

Can you make a cr 90 or raider class corvette.

I love how you integrated the shield domes into the rounded components on the bridge superstructure. That was a really good call.

Stunning work as always… @FractalSponge, three questions: 1) What do you think of the role of this ship? I saw it in the comics and in EvilleJedi’s HomeWorld mod and always thought of it as a mobile, armored palace for some petty stellar tyrant or a regional governor of the Galactic Empire (which may be the same thing) but was wondering what you thought it would be for… 2) You think through your designs really well, could you do a writeup as to crew sizes, number of shuttles and strike craft on board, ground troops, etc? 3) As far as… Read more »

Hey Fractal, it has been a bit, are we still getting that Bellator comparison shot?

I am assuming…since this is from the same era…that this will have the same main guns as the Victory?

It was designed to be a lighter escort for the Victory, so possibly lighter guns. Perhaps somewhere between the MTL and DBY-827.

There is an official pic on Wookieepedia. The 6 main guns bear a resemblance to the guns on the Venator that Fractal used on the Vic.

They also bear as close a resemblance to the heavy quad laser turrets on an Arquitens. I believe it’s a common turret style on Clone Wars era purpose-built Republic warships, rather than indicating any particular cannon.

Please, make Venator-class Star Destroyer

So I though the Gladiator’s main armament would be quad 200 gigatons medium turbolasers on it’s sides, but since now that it not a case, I guess the main armament could be some kind of light-heavy turbolaser, like the ones on the Teroch Mandalorian cruiser but as twins instead of singles.

Some very nice detailing Ansel. Excellent work.

So, with 18 PDTs, 2 Quad Medium Turbolaser Turrets, and 2 Tractor Beam Turrets so far, she’s already more heavily armed than her official stats.
Fractal is proving, once again, how little consistency Legends had wrt weaponry (not that Canon’s much/any better).

Fractal, I am so glad you’re doing the Gladiator. It’s pretty much my 2nd favourite ship after the Crusader.

Not quite the original has 12 light dual turbolaser turrets, 10 medium laser cannons and 10 proton torpedo tubes or assault concussion missile launchers with up to 300 medium missiles. As well as 26 fighters.

But knowing Fractal and how he is with ships his variant will most defiantly be more well armed.

TheIcthala

Since Fractal’s PDTs are 1 light turbolaser cannon with one heavy laser cannon, her laser cannon armament is more than twice as strong, and her light turbolaser armament is 2/3 as strong. Fractal’s MTLs are, if I remember correctly, more than an order of magnitude more powerful than his LTLs, meaning that either of the 2 quad turrets carries more firepower than the entire official turbolaser armament.
I admit that I didn’t address the munitions launchers in my earlier post. I should have remembered to mention them.

Yeah that’s true I forgot that he often does that so you’d be right then. But yeah those missile launchers do make a difference because they can have either medium concussion missiles or proton torpedo’s and it can carry up to 300 rounds of ordnance for the launchers which is fairly hefty. Though knowing fractal it’s anyone’s guess whether or not he’ll put them in his variant. It’d be nice if he adds em because that’d give it even more hefty firepower and more missiles to spam when it escorts the already missing spamming victory but I’ll like whatever he… Read more »
