Just how fast is a Bellator? I know it can easily outpace a Super Star Destroyer but is its speed comparable to that of a smaller ship? Like the ISD or a MC80?
Yep, it’s still my favourite SW ship ever! And I love Fractal’s model. I love the ‘Redux’ version too, but to me, the original is still the best. I even spent money having the bow view printed on a t-shirt! 😛 (Due credit given of course)
Anyone know ghe armorment for the belletor? All i can find is “multiple batteries”
This is my favorite Star Destroyer, and the models are fabulous! Congrats on your work, Fractal, and know that we love it!
Which animating or better 3d modelling program do you use?
What are the weapons and equipment on this thing?
What do you think of this?
I love the Bellator.
Does anybody kow how many Shield Generators are on the Bellator Class? I see 4 domes, and if I recall correctly, those are Primary Shield Generators, but I can only see 2 other Shield Generators… Are those starburst-style panels shield emitters as well?
I have to be honest, I LOVE Ansel Hsiao’s work! It is the BEST quality that I have ever seen! Then there is this ship, which I have loved ever since I had first seen it. If I could own ANY Star Wars vessel, it would be the Bellator, or the Assertor.
Honestly, the older thruster-trail pics seem fairly ANH-effects evocative; these updates are just a skosh more current-cinematic.
Hey check this fanon page it have a Bellator picture on it but the role and type of it is completely different in a stupid way to be honest including it’s class name.
That’s the Fanon wiki, so anyone can post whatever they want there. I’ve seen pencil sketches on lined paper shown on that site.
BEAM class? Sounds like a codename for the Assertor…
Beam Class? Sounds like a codename for the Assertor or the Eclipse…
So about the missile bays can they both concussion missiles and proton torpedoes at the same time?
Can they HAVE* both
I’d be amazed if the launcher space couldn’t be retooled for either warhead type or both. I get the impression CM are more efficient for picking off agile craft while torps have more warship-killing yield, but that may just be a rule of thumb for fighter/light freighter-scale antics.
The frontal view has been my deskop wallpaper long before I had ever heard of this website. I honestly thought it was a white-painted resurgent :)) I’m so silly…
In the book’s endnotes, Jason gave several facts about the class as well as others done by Hsiao, which is now canon information. He also gave two accounts; in-universe and out-of-universe on the method behind the design of the
That’s an amazing Starship!!!
How many guns are on this beast? I’m having trouble counting them all =P
On another note, can you do the Mandator III?
From what I know, the Bellator-class had significantly less weaponry than a Mandator-II or Mandator-III, but was a lot more agile. It was also about 5000 metres shorter than the Mandator-III.
Many things about this design (extreme back-weighting of the command superstructure, large dorsal housing in front, long point) immediately make me think of the Nelson-class ships, and if this were a battleship rather than a battlecruiser I’d be tempted to draw a direct relationship. Looks excellent.
Now *this* is one absurdly slick blend of tapering grace & brute force; easily my favorite non-film capital vessel. Clever hangar layout, some notable protection for the main engine bank…I’d have moved one or both reactors a touch further away from said flight decks, but that’s about it.
I second your vote, sir. Fractal has done all kinds of great ships, but the Bellator is an easy favorite for me as well. Just beautiful.
