4 May 2018 Container transport WIP by Fractalsponge | posted in: Capital ship, Rebel Alliance, Star Wars, WIP | 12 A commission piece with the concept that it’s a transport that can sort of double as an East Indiaman type armed ship.
It somehow reminds me of a beefed up Gozanti-Cruiser with additional Cargo capacity and some Arquitens Light Cruiser elements thrown in for good measure.
Depending on its speed it might be an ideal ship for breaking blockades around friendly planets to deliver much needed supplies for allied forces and civilians on the ground
Like an idiot, I went to Wookieepedia first to see what an East Indiaman type armed ship looked like. There was a reason why I had never heard of that planetary system or ship type before within the SW universe lol
Ain’t research & age-of-sail references fun?
First off, very nice model. I like the way it looks, and I’ve always hated how a lot of Star Wars cargo transport are either very lightly armed, or not armed at all.
Second, in the description you stated that this is a commission. Didn’t even know you did commissions. What’s the price range?
how big is this guy?
462.8m x 214m, depths depends on sensor dish orientation and the size of the underslung cargo.
love it !!! your lighting improved significantly, the thing looks like a model in the four last images.
Ooh looks like a mixed concept of GR-75 with a Gozanti!
Interesting concept for a moderately armed, large cargo vessel. Star pirates will not have easy prey with this design.
Well this is unexpected but quite interesting.
So by the look of it’s quad turbolasers i think the size of this ship is between 300m-400m in length.
Between the turret size, that sensor dish & those Arquitens-esque engine pods, your guess seems about right. This puppy’s fire arcs seem primarily broadside/fore-optimized, which strikes me as a fair compromise with its hauler role. Might spend as much time backing up its Nebulon escorts as vice-versa.
