I count 1 Executor, 1 Assertor, 2 Bellator, 2 praetor, 2 impellor, 2 secutor, 3 consolidator, 8 allegiance, 12 ISD, 1 interdictor, 4 fulgor, and 10 procursator.
Do any of you guys see something else?
Do you plan on doing a shot like this again, but including all of your new vessels, reduxes, and 4k retextures?
Oh, lovely! I am thrilled to see a Bellator-class Dreadnought/Star Destroyer (by the way, which is the best classification?) in this… it is my favorite.
Thank you, Fractal.
(top right for those who missed it)
I have answered my own question. According to the Anaxes War College System (from the Essential Guide to Warfare), a Star Destroyer is 1,000 to 2,000 m, a Battlecruiser 2,000 to 5,000, and a Dreadnought 5,000 and above. The Bellator-class __________ measures at, according to Wookiepedia, all of 7,200 meters, definitively placing it in the Dreadnought category.
For reference, an Executor-class Dreadnought, according to Wookiepedia again, is all of 19,000 meters.
In summary, it is best and most accurate to call it Bellator-class Dreadnought.
It’s important to remember that the Anaxes system was designed to be easy to understand for readers with little military history experience. Actual ship classes are far more complicated and should be based on factors like intended use and design philosophy rather than simply length.
If you want to see just how convoluted ship classifications can be: technically in real life most battlecruisers ARE dreadnoughts since they meet the definition (a post-HMS Dreadnought ship with a uniform main gun fit plus steam-turbine propulsion). Many later battlecruisers can further be conflated with the idea of fast battleship, to the extent that the last British Battlecruisers were very similar on paper to US Fast Battleships and differed less in capability or intended use and more in regional/institutional semantics.
What corvettes are in this?
good useful information. Thank you
Did you ever do an Executor-class Star Dreadnought like one on this image?
Hoping he does the executor and the eclipse
I am pretty sure that is the Executor from either The Empire Strikes Back or Return of The Jedi
Not an answer, but a question… how did you get a picture instead of a silly thing like mine?
My favourite by far is the Assertor-class
