Apart from the length discrepancy (154 meters vs. 110 meters), this is conceptually quite similar to the Warlord-Class Dropship that was mentioned in WEG’s SWAJ #2 Article “A World To Conquer”. It could carry 4 AT-ATs simultaneously, or 360 passengers & 180 metric tons of cargo instead of the AT-ATs, with six double turbolasers for defense. Obviously, not a perfect match, but close enough that the Warlord immediately sprang to mind when I saw the Chi. I may change the Warlord stats up to fit with the Chi’s imagery…

I love this one. Never liked the design of the Y-85 Titan or Theta-class. This looks far more in keeping with Imperial design.

Got my 1981 copy of American War Power. Would this be a strategic transport like the C-5A Galaxy and C-141 Starlifter or a multi-role transport like the C-130? If it is a multi-role transport would there be a gunship variant? That last question is pretty silly… Read more »

What’s the approximate length of the shuttle? Around 80 meters? Also, around how many troops and vehicles could it carry?

I really have to say that I adore this design. You really captured and culminated the typical Star Wars aesthetics. The ship is bulky and sleek at the same time. It some kind of merges the visual appearance from the Clone Wars-era with the best of the old trilogy designs, as if it would show up in between both, in the era of the rise of the Empire I suppose. They should include this in films like the upcoming Rogue One-movie. I can’t thank you enough for this gorgeous imperial design. I always thought about more classification types for the… Read more »
