As a kid playing games like TIE Fighter, and reading comics, playing the CCG, etc. I wondered why sometimes the VSD didn’t have a consistent design with it’s rear “wings.” I don’t know if it’s always been part of the idea of the VSD, but I love how you’ve done a sort of “S Foil” thing for the VSD where the armament is concealed, and thereby also answering that question I had for so long.

While the stark white of Imperial-era warships is lovely, have you ever considered reskinning the Victory in Clone Wars livery? I’d love to see how they looked in that era.
Also, while I understand the Prequels aren’t quite your thing, I still hold out hope you’ll do a Venator one day.

@fractalsponge: I’ve had this question for a minute and I was wondering if you could give your thoughts. In Star Wars Rebels Admiral Thrawn conducts an orbital bombardment of the Rebel base, in which we see multiple ISD’s utilizing their main batteries. Now, in your work and calculations (among many others), just a single blast of these turbolaser batteries is rated at way higher than megaton destructive yield (I don’t even know all the terms, but I catch the drift that a each shot from an ISD is stronger than Tsar Bomba). And yet, in Star Wars Rebels, we see… Read more »

Here’s the video clip of the scene I’m talking about

For anyone who cares, here’s my rationalization, because it actually plays into why I love this Victory Star Destroyer design: Assuming that “blasters” and “turbolasers” are operating on a common plasma bolt weapon concept, I rationalize in my own headcannon that this type of weapon delivers its effect through both partical kinetic energy and incendiary heat energy, in a way simlilar to real-life shaped charges. This type of weapon is optimized for space combat, burning through armor and overloading shields, and [aired with a capital ship reactor as a power source, such weapons would have an unlimited magazine and high… Read more »

You can tell it’s a Victory-I because it has concussion missile tubes on the sides; the Victory-IIs dropped the missiles in favor of ion cannons.

40 Tubes per side?

Hi, I just wanted to ask anyone who knows where the two different concepts of the Victory’s superstructure and bridge come from. Most depictions in video games and books show a scaled-down ISD bridge, with a sort of nose tacked on in front. Fractalsponge’s model has a wider, flat bridge, with a much blunter nose. I would imagine the former came from either artists and sculptors recycling components from the ISD, which leaves me to wonder where the latter originated. Is it just a different variation for art’s sake, or is there some other reason?

IIRC…this was the inspiration for the Victory-class. Concept art for the SDs in the movies.

Visual inspiration, certainly, but the concept art wasn’t called the Victory until WEG decided to mash it up with the Victory from the Brian Daley novels.
