Looks like an armed fish. With ion engines.

Fractal said it is a internal bridge.

So Fractal if the Aiwha a light corvette and the Vigil a heavy corvette then what your idea on the medium corvette?

I would guess a Raider class. He hasn’t done one of those yet but I hope one comes. It deserves better representation than what it’s had so far.

Reminiscent of a horseshoe crab. Very nice design, but unfitting of an Imperial ship though.

What are the triangular louvrered sections on the upper hull, and if those ball turreted cannons on the nose are ion weapons, what’re grade are they?

Thank you! Is this about 170 meters in length or a little longer?

So Fractal if you are going to make a Raider class Corvette will it have a similar role to the Aiwha class or a much different role?

I wonder how fast this corvette is like 3500-3700g?

Love the look. It screams Mon Call to me, due to looking reminicent of a crustacean.

How far off axis can the ball turrets traverse? I’m guessing 45 degrees. Please correct me if i am wrong.

Fractal which ship do you think will win in a battle this one or the Raider?

Right ok then so the question i should have ask is which is more powerful this or raider?
I guess the Aiwha would have more power due to it’s duel MTL on the top and it’s Ion cannons but might lack the speed of the raider right?

Now this is what the Raider Corvette should have looked like. The design brings to mind the Defiant from DS9: something very fast and highly maneuverable, but also heavily armed and tough. Not a ship I’d want to tangle with!

Wonder who makes this puppy. Doesn’t have the aesthetic of a KDY design. Good stuff!

I wonder if there’s any room in Palpatine’s order of battle for a dedicated heavy missile corvette based on this chassis. If one removes all the turbolasers/ions, you could probably pack 12 ordnance tubes of the same size as the Dreadnaught-Refit’s tubes Fractal did a while ago, which would allow such an Aiwha-II to deliver a punishing alpha-strike to any Rebels it stumbled across before jumping out. A fleet outrider recon-ship with the ability to punch far out of its weight class for a few moments before getting out is a capability that not only the Alliance should have.

Holy Cow! Awesome stuff. Oh how much I wish you were one of the design leads for the Star Wars Films. Not that I’m in any position to criticize the guys who are. I mean, I’ve got enough art and design education under my belt to realize just how much work has gone into even ONE of their creations. And I admit I certainly couldn’t do their job… Just wish they’d gone for different look for a lot of the new trilogy stuff. I digress, this is awesome. Keep up the good work.

This star stingray sports a fine blend of clean lines & fire arcs, and the scale comparison with your Vigil class is much appreciated. Incidentally, would the Aiwha boast enough thrust to keep up with, say, an Indictor on fast recon duty?

Quick question; her bridge, where is it?Since I can’t see it I assume it is an internal bridge, instead of the standard outer bridge seen in most SW ships. Great! A ship without an immediately visible target!

Certainly good to challenge the Mon Cal monopoly on spaceborne ‘marine’ aesthetic now & again, even if their designers seem stuck in a ‘submarine with skin condition’ rut. And the bridge is probably somewhere near/beneath that little sensor dome just above/behind the bow turret, though good luck pinpointing that while chasing a ship with this much thrust.
