What are the small bays above the main one for? Sorry if this has been answered before, I looked and didn’t see anything on it.

Awesome work by the way. I spend hours at a time on here sometimes, very cool website with excellent work.

It also seems like it would make a good spot for carrying LAAV/i’s for deploying the dropship’s infantry contingent.

So Fractal apart from the Theta AT-AT barge and the Titan barge for the AT-SP how many more dropship types would you make?

Neat and I do know about the brigade assault ship and the Chi variant But I hope to see this light dropship carried by frigates but do destroyers carry them as well like the Imperator?

OK I did just answer my own question about the light dropships being carried by star destroyers because well really they can.
Anyway speaking of dropships Fractal since you would make a light dropship alongside with your Chi heavy dropship what about the medium dropship that would carry all repulsor and light-medium walker types for destroyer sized ships? (Expect for light destroyers like the Victory)

So Fractal how wide is the Chi’s bay like around 60 meters?

So Fractal during you modeling of the Corps Assault Carrier you said you make some vehicles like dropships that would help transport land vehicles and troops from the Assault carriers and other ships that carry those dropships.

One of them you said that caught my atteion as it is quote “New dropship type that can take a single A6 Juggernaut or SPHA equivalent or two AT-SE walkers, or two AT-ATs plus smaller vehicles”.

So if that was the case is the Chi the one you talking about but decided you make it bigger to carry more or it is still a completely different dropship?

Ah so the Chi is one of them neat.
Speaking of Assault Carrier Fractal I was wondering is there was a chance of you making more Assault carrier types like maybe the smaller Division assault carrier type or the larger army assault carrier type unless the Consolidator is the one and only assault carrier that you ever make that is.

I see and when you say carriers you mean fleet carriers and super carriers to be exacted and for the dreadnought highly likely to be the Executor right?
As for the regiment/brigade/legion assault transport I hope to look forward for that sooner or later.

Also Fractal since you said a battalion is the smallest independent ground force unit does that mean there will be a battalion assault carrier which would be corvette sized or larger?

Yeah I was thinking about it a bit earlier and it make sense to do that.
By away Fractal when you said the regimental/brigade assault transport would be roughly be medium frigate sized it is something like Kontos sized or Strike Cruiser sized and if the former will it be a Kontos variant?

I like this ship a lot, but i’m a little confused. I’ve looked over all your space craft, and there is nothing that can deploy that AT-AT on steroids you did. How do they even get that thing onto the ground??

Although Fractal I wonder would it be possible to make a Chi variant that is designed to carry the AT-SP or even 2 onto the ground in the style like the Gozanti did to it’s 2 AT-ATs in Rebels for the latter or not?

As for the legs hanging out being not pretty I don’t mind them as I know the AT-SPs always have there legs straighten out so I’m use to it.

Do you think that later Star Destroyer designs like the Galactic-Class battlecruiser or even the Pelleaon-Class were true improvements upon traditional Imperial Star Destroyers? I have seen a lot of people claiming that because they were generally smaller they would not have the same level of capability.

Huh just found out about the Galactic class it was interesting although the weird thing about it is that the Galactic Alliance change the Galactic class ship type to a Battlecarrier type instead of the usual Star Destroyer type just to avoid reminding people of the old imperial terror symbols even though they use Nebula/Defender before as the New Republic which they are still called Star Destroyer.

In theory there could have superior reactors due to technological development, but neither the Galactic-class “battle carrier”, nor the Pellaeon-class Star Destroyer are smaller than the Imperator-class. The Galactic-class is the same length as the Imperator, but is noted to be one-and-a-half times the tonnage and thus would be able to have a larger, more powerful reactor. The Pellaeon-class is supposedly shorter than the Imperator-class, but again, may be more massive. A ship’s volume, not its length determines its power.

It does sort of have a jagdpanther aesthetic about it, although I don’t know how effective sloping armor would be against heavy laser fire. Must be tough finding hull-down firing positions with that kind of height.

How do these vehicles fit when the bay is in the raised position? The AT-AT doesn’t seem to kneel very well, much less lay down.

So as of right now only 20 (Or 21 if Fractal were to make the Imperator 1 4K) Fractal models With different side view pictures instead of one picture of it, are left that are yet to be 4K, 14 or 15 of them being imperial.

Well for the first part I counted the models that are not 4K yet and for the second part I meant to say for the models that have more than one picture to show different angel view like the front or back of the model, while the Harrower, Nebulon, Endurance and TIE Predator only have one picture.

Two things:
1) Are those bays lit with incandescent, fluorescent, or LED lights?

2) Top Gun Manuever in a Juggernaut: raising the antenna mast so that it just kisses the top sill of the loading bay as you drive it out.

This may well be my favorite design from Fractal. Kind of like the big brother of the Lambda class shuttle. If I could pick one ship to be made canon I probably would choose this one.

Fractal, Two Question; could the Assertor Class Dreadnought carry any of these dropships? and how many AT-AT’S could the dropship fully loaded carry?

Not Fractal but I do know the latter answer which is 8 AT-ATs with 2 companies of troops.

I wouldn’t be surprised if some variety of self-assembling repulsor pontoon wasn’t standard issue gear for AT-ACT combat engineer walkers configured as AVLB units. Such a vehicle could throw down a bridge over a ravine or river in seconds to support the advance of AT-ATs and HAVw A6 juggernauts over what would normally be impassable terrain.

So Fractal I know that this heavy dropship can fit in the huge square hanger bay on the Consolidator, Impellor, Compellor and the Legator but I wonder how many can you fit these heavy dropships inside a single huge square hanger bay or is it only one heavy drop ship?

Wait there a dropship even larger than the Chi and since you said there is then how much larger?

Ah right I remember it is a titan barge variant designed to carry a AT-SP then I bet it won’t be as long or wide as the Chi but would dwarf it by height.

Give it a hyperdrive and it would be pretty good supply ship.

Just realized, they already have a bird that does this. The Zeta-class cargo shuttle is hyperspace capable and dedicated to cargo lifts. Smaller though, so they would need many more of these ferrying back and forth.

They also have the Eta-Class Supply Barge, which looks like it dwarfs the Chi-Class. No info on it being hyperspace capable, but it’s a safe bet that it is, given the lack of large freighters hanging around Scarif when Rogue One arrives.

Ah yes, forgot about the Eta-Class. That looks to be about 12x longer than the Zeta-Class, and if the ship it was tending had no cargo bay large enough it could connect to standard airlocks etc. Good find.

Dropships generally deliver cargo from orbit to surface, they don’t need hyperdrive for this. I presume that it is such example, orbit-surface task ship and such role make hyperdrive not needed.

At that point, you’re better of using an acclamator. It’s a hundred time larger than the eta and it has a range of a 100.000 light years.

I don’t think so since the Acclamator is a assault ship meant to carry troops and war vehicles (Repulsor tanks, troop transports and walkers) into the battlefield while the Eta is a supply barge meant to carry large amount of cargo and supplies around like kyber crystals to power the death star during the imperial occupation of Jedha.
