I love this ship. I want this to be a Hero Ship for any type of setting. It is everything the raider was suppose to be for BF2. Are there any stats for this ship?

Do i see 24 concussion missile launcher? Also, what is the standard star fighter compliment of this ship?

Not Fractal but yeah they are missile launchers same with the Vindicator and the Fulgor.
As for the fighter compliment I do believe Fractal say it carry 2-3 fighter squadrons.

This would definitely be my ship of choice. The firing arcs are well thought out, so there aren’t any real weak spots. And since it’s meant to be an improvement on the Strike cruiser, I’m guessing the hangar complement is fairly customizable from space superiority to planetary assault.

It means it is almost same size (volume) as Vindicator but it looks undergunned with 2 twin medium, 9 quads vs 4 HTL, 11 quads of Vindicator. What’re pros and cons of those ships when you compare them to each other?

So Fractal how would the Kontos fare against the Munificent?

Yeah I though you say that because of the Munificent’s front super heavy turbolaser being more powerful than the main guns of the Assertor and Bellator.
Also the Kontos treating the Munificent like a stationary target so do you mean the latter ship is very slow and is so how slow?

This and the sloop are still my favs.

Still love this thing’s hangar doors, half-recessed scanner dome & deep diamond hull plan, though hopefully its aft gunners get some extra flash protection.

Fractal put it at 546.2 meters but he originally he put it at 450 meters when he start making the Kontos.

Ahh that length is nice, something for the Vindicator as rough imperial equivalents to the MC30 and MC40 combo.

Ever thought of Making a Venator-Class?
That would be cool.

At this point I’d rather you just label it a Strike Cruiser, and hope someone at ILM or a new-canon writer stumbles upon it if someone wants to reintroduce the Strike Cruiser as they did the Secutor.

Do you think ILM would put the Assertor in the new trilogy if Fractal were to rename it the giga super-star-destroyer ?

There’s clearly someone working on these new films that knows what they’re talking about in terms in terms of ship naming nomenclature who named the Mandator-IV even if he wasn’t allowed to design it, designated the Raddus as a heavy star cruiser, and pushed for calling the Resurgent a Star Battlecruiser instead of a destroyer. It’s a pity that person wasn’t given more creative control.

Funny you say that but yet Supremacy is…a star destroyer again.

Mega, giga, tera, peta, exa, zetta, yotta. A 1 followed by 24 zeros.
You would have to change its size to, like, 900 miles long.

I’m still chuckling over whomever slapped Assertor into the Imperial Handbook…with a caption explicitly referring to Executor. Way to credit *and* reference, minions of Mouse.

I saw that and got a chuckle at it too. However, going through the sources, Assertor was more widely used before Executor-class came into being, so I would have to guess that during the handbook’s lore-base publishing at 0 BBY, they presumed the Executor will be an Assertor-class?

As in-setting rationalizations go, that works-jives nicely with RL propaganda productions often missing sudden/recent developments.

Them making the Assertor older and weaker than the Executor was a big mistake IMO. Things twice the size of an Executor, isn’t it? I could see them excising the Superlaser, but Assertor is simply a more massive vessel than the Executor.

Eh, I’d just chalk up the Loronar ship’s existence to a smaller company putting the bug in some Tagge-esque bigwig’s ear, and KDY in turn opting to slap that down with these puppies.
