Is this meant to be the same length as the civilian corvette? 180m?

What do you think of the idea of using this as a heavy missile boat? A few ships with the inter-arm compartment filled with 5 or 6 heavy capitol-scale missiles might do a number on a proper warship if used as a highly mobile attack group in ambush situations, or in roving wolf-packs in fleet actions.

This is in line with the general discussion below. Irrespective of the arguments for/against the worthiness of capital-ship scale missiles, it is, in theory, possible, but from a practical standpoint there’s arguably going to be better purpose-built options that would fit the required tactical profile you’re describing.

My personal opinion is that such a configuration would be a step or two too far outside the bell-curve of ‘highest-and-best’ uses for the frame. But that’s just me.

I agree it is a bit over the capabilities of the frame to send it after capitol ships, but for a small system defense force the choice might be between this and trying to militarize a merchant ship. At least this design has speed and power to spare, albeit not as much as a true military frame. It’d be the equivalent of a WW2 PT boat or a modern fast attack boat (same concept but anti-ship missiles instead of torpedoes). Capable of hurting a big ship in a hit-and-run attack but small/cheap enough to produce tons of.

This is a mostly long dead posting, but it’s undoubtedly one of my favourites so I tend to be drawn back to it… So, based on the notion that we’ve got a solid civilian/”municipal” variant and an up-armoured paramilitary variant, what other middle-ground roles would this chassis be viable for? Much like the Modular Task Force Cruiser, I could see this upgraded ship being fitted to accommodate a variety of standardized and customizable modules like expanded passenger/prisoner/troop space, cargo capacity for pre-fab garrisons/bases, repair/refit space, a tactical-scale gravity well generator, etc…. …Or, in a galaxy of a thousand thousand different… Read more »

I love this ship and want to use it for a LANCER campaign as a light cruiser — small forward-deployed team doing recon & anti-piracy

So Fractal about this corvette’s hanger doors do they open like the Vigil?

You know Fractal since both of these customs corvettes don’t have a class name would you give it a class name or not and if so what would you name them?

But are you sure the Customs corvette can carry more than the Vigil even though from the look of it the Vigil’s hanger look bigger than the Customs’s hanger unless the Customs’s hanger have greater depth then the Vigil’s hanger and if so then I understand how it carry more.

Ok Fractal I believe you that the customs corvette can carry more fighters than the Vigil now that I look at both the corvettes hangers. And why did i change my mind on you say well because of the duel light turbolasers right next to the hanger more specifically the turbolasers on the customs hanger look smaller than the ones on the Vigil which make the hanger on the customs corvette look bigger than the Vigil’s hanger especially the width between the turbolasers. So yeah sorry that I underestimate your calculation with the corvettes’s hangers carrying capability. By away with… Read more »

Wait I just have another look at the customs corvette hanger and it two guns and it was actually quad heavy laser cannons which are smaller than the light duel turbolasers. But I might still believe you it carry more because the hanger on the customs corvette is wider than the Vigil’s hanger and possibly greater depth or not.

So you said this corvette can carry 3-4 squadrons so then it carry more than the Vigil or does the Vigil also carry 3-4 squadrons?

So this version of the customs corvette was a straight upgrade and an replacement for the old one yes?

The regular Customs Corvette is seen with landing legs. Does the Military Variant have them as well?

Main weaponry is the same as in the Light Customs Corvette? If so, it may be too light to face a full military corvette with capital-type turbolasers, even with fighter support. She would still be a great escort ship.
How many TIEs inside? A full squadron? Has she got tractor beams to handle them?

Speedy-looking nipper even with that TIE hangar slapped between those mandibles. Got a feeling this sucker would have even less trouble catching CR90s than your average Impstar.
