Are those missle tubes in the back above the engine? I just had to ask.

Yes. From Fractal’s interpretation, all Imperial missile cells have the same basic structure, but have varying scales from these dinky little tubes all the way up to the monstrous strategic launch bays on the Bellator.

Is this designed by the same race that designed the Star Frigate?

The Dreadnaught Class Star Frigate I mean.

It would be nice to see it’s air/space(?) wing flying alongside it.

That would require one doozy of a pullback to fit all those shuttles & TIEs in the same shot. Come to think of it, hilariously fitting that the Ton Falk’s already resembles a beehive on its side. All that’s missing is the cartoon-buzz SFX in place of TIE engines.

They were 500m long and 150m tall and carried a compliment of 72 fighters and 6 shuttles according to the source books.

This is amazing work, I’ve wanted to see a detailed, updated version of this ship for a long time.

It would be good to see you make the Gamma-class ATR-6 assault transport and the Beta-class ETR-3 escort transport you could probably work on both as one project given how similar their designs are.

What did you intend the three boxes amidships to be?

Great work as usual, Ansel. I’m always surprised how you manage to take mediocre source material and turn it into a plausible looking warship. Is the recessed sensor dome on the top built to ISD size?

Pretty sure those sensor/backup-shield combos are indeed standardized at the proportions seen on Impstars. And seconded on Fractal’s talent for upgrading-I’m especially digging this puppy’s launch-bay redundancies & nicely-proportioned engine block.

I might be wrong but I recall seeing miniaturized versions being stolen by the Ghost Crew in Rebels. Might’a been season one. But I’d bet on Gorkmalork being right about them being Imp Star scale ones in this case.

Checked starwars.com, and correct you are about those mini-projectors. Perhaps those were intended for the corvette + light freighter and/or civilian-craft market. I’d be surprised if, say, CR90s or GR75 transports had enough space & juice to handle ordinary KDY ‘golfballs’.
