This can be perfect for the alliance because of its carrying capacity and the point defense system (laser canons) are areas for destroying junky TIEs

It looks like a support carrier because I see more space dedicated to carrying

Is this more of a carrier or a support craft

This looks extremely defenseless if there were no tie fighters in there and all of the hangar space is great

look at the second 2 last image, and take in too account the battery’s on the top, and bottom and compare the sizes to the tie fighters.

Well the two decks, reception for fighters and launch and receive for shuttles. So shuttles come in and out. Fighters hooked in, serviced, and down to the ready racks.

why front and bottom hangars?

Honestly, it looks like something the Rebellion would come up with after capturing some customs corvettes. Trying to make a ship that could help service starfighters.

Now that I can see it on my pc instead of my phone I must say I LOVE the new bridge. Excellent work my friend. I now prefer this version over the standard customs corvette.

Is this a modular design? I.E. is the TIE rack a module between the front prongs that can be switched out with other modules for different applications? Because if so, this seems like it would be a great replacement for a Gozanti

Not too much space for supplies or any maintenance installation on board for that rather large contingent. I presume more an in-system patrol ship that don’t move beyond that one area?

So the idea of a custom’s corvette is to blockade incoming traffic to planetary bodies or hyperspace lanes. Think “Airport customs” where they ask “why are you here, what are you bringing into the country, bla bla bla” and then apply this to starwars planetary fleet security forces. The main bases are planetside, the Tie Fighters are serviced there, but are flown into orbit via the Corvette to be on direct action station if need be.

This version i guess would be used in Imperial systems that contain major shipbuilding yards and/or fleet bases, where the original Customs Corvette is used as Zeoinx described.

I think though, I could be wrong, that Fractal did this revision more to illustrate how many fighters you can pack into a 180m long ship.

People still don’t think you can fit 2 squadrons of TIEs in a Nebulon! 😛

Interesting design. Fighters can not be based there due to the lack of space but it is perfect way for short jump with the fighters into the combat. The only thing that I see is the unability of the ship to carry anything other than TIE Fighter and maybe TIE Interceptor. TIE Bomber seems to be to large for it already. Am I right?

How does the front door area open. Up and down or side to side?.

It seems to be opened up only

That looks like a lot of fighters in a small area! I’d hate to be trying to escape that guy.
