Amazing! I’d love to see that model in Star Wars Empire at War Remake

Amazing work as usual! Reminds me a lot of the Nar Shardaa SD from the Force Unleashed. Not enough love for single-styled venator command towers.

So the fighters come out from the back? That’s pretty ingenious, just like the Kandosii-class Dreadnought.

Now, all we need is a paint job to show what it looked like as a Republic ship.

Most of you are probably familiar with the Acclamator Assault ship. It was that little “Baby’s first Star Destroyer” ship we see in Attack of the Clones, that gets sidelined for the Venator in Revenge of the Sith. What you are probably not familiar with is a little bit of trivia I stumbled upon while nerding around on Wookiepedia: the Acclamator is stupidly overpowered. Allow me to elaborate: 1.) Speed-The Acclamator has a .6 hyperdrive rating. To put that into perspective, the Fucking Millenium Falcon has a hyperdrive rating of .5. This is stupid fast, to the point of being… Read more »

An interesting point. Slight nitpicking though: 1. The reason why the complement of the Acclamator is one tenth of the Venator is the fact that the people needed to operate all the heavy walkers or fighters are actually listed as passengers that it carry (16,000 clone troopers I might add). Although, yes it can operate all the system fully without fighters, the Clone Wars era Republic has a more fighter intensive doctrine than the Galactic Empire thus the ability to carry fighters are far more essential. Which neatly brings us to the Venator with 192 V-wings, 36 ARC-170, and 192… Read more »

While the ISD is meant for projecting power and intimidation, not being efficient. The Acclamator hits a home run once again on both of those points. As you the Acclamator can carry 16,000 troops in its hull, and their heavy equipment, tanks, aircraft, along with a starfighter complement to boot. The Acclamator can also land and rapidly disembark troops directly, without needing to rely on landing craft like the ISD. And, as established earlier, the Acclamator is stupidly economical, so it’s very likely that there will be more than one Acclamator in any given operation. As for the Intimidation factor,… Read more »

Sorry for intervention, but I really think that you underestimating the ISD capabilities in your assesment. First things first, intimidation effect of an ISD was DEDUCTED from AARs which Tarkin had at his disposal, and was not what the designers had in mind. Original purpose of its design was to be self-sufficient unit which could perform a wide spectre of missions and maintain the edge over threats it can potentially encounter (its only a destroyer after all). As for those numbers of passengers and fighters, ISD is clear winner, because volumes work that way. Stated numbers heavily imply that they… Read more »

I dont think so. The turbolasers on a ISD are far more powerfull than the quads of the Acclamator. The Acclamator also isnt half a ISD in size because size expand in 3 dimensions, and the tail of the Acclamator is also very thin. You also talk about reconfigurating the complement of the Acclamator to carry more fighters than an ISD can. You forget a ISD can change its complement too, as dedicated carrier, a ISD can easily carry 3 times Venator complement or 800 TIEs + support craft. Its also very unlikely a ISD has no PD-turrets. We dont… Read more »

I always loved this ship. It seems a little lite on armament, but I assume that is due to the time period you say it is from, during the height of the Ruusan Reformation.

He means 18x 40TT turbolasers
(An ISD-II has 91 if my count on Fractal’s model is right)

How many fighters does one of these carry?

I really love this design. It looks like it could fit in either Republic or Empire fleets. Coming here just makes me hate whoever picked the final designs in the Sequels!

Are the super firing triples new? I can’t remember if they were there on your earlier renders.

@fractalsponge: 1) Will you ever do a Resurgent Class, and/or other imagined First Order warships? I’d think it would be especially cool to see a Resurgent render that elaborated on what is contained in the negative space at the front of the ship. 2) Have you ever done internal cross-section/cutaway renders of star wars ships? 3) Have you ever considered imagining what New Republic warships and design language would look like, say, 10-20 years after Endor. i.e. the fleet that was ostensibly destroyed by Starkiller base in canon? While I was generally happy with First Order warship designs aside from… Read more »

Fuck Yeah he should di that because it would be nice to get the mandator supremacy resurgent and the xyston classes of star destroyers

I’ve long thought that the siege dreadnought should have been based on the Bellators’ frame.

This has always been one of my favorites of yours, only beaten out by the Bellator and Kontos
