Hi Fractal, I design custom LEGO models based on Star Wars ships, and am thinking this would be a great next project. Would you mind if I use some of the above images in the instruction manual/on social media posts, as long as each such use references your username and this web page?

Thanks very much!

The Proclamator is significantly larger in both length and volume, with a much larger reactor, and more/bigger guns. It wouldn’t even be a contest.

Similar hangar layout, but I’m pretty sure the Imp II has a slimmer, sharper bow & Acclamator-style thruster + aft fin combo (as opposed to this one’s fantail + extra thruster pair).

My measurements say the large hangars are 70m width. The height of them is difficult to measure but a Lambda-class shuttle fits. The depth of them is impossible to measure, but it makes sense if it is 50-70 meters. The smaller hangars we see on both sides are at least 12.5m x 12.5m (roughly measured) so they are large enough for TIE fighters. There are 3 “wall” and 1 ventral hangar on each side so I suppose TIE are launched from these hangers and when recovered through the ventral-opening transported with a rail-system to maintenance- and launch-hangars. That leaves the big hangars free for shuttles, landing-craft and attack-craft like skiprays.

more like 65m width. The height in this calculation is ~30m, enough to have a lambda-class with a few meters left (when taking of the landing gear retracts and the height becomes less, so even more meters clearance.).

Random bit of obviously non-canon lore for ya folks

Built in the waning days of the Old Republic and classed as a Star Destroyer during that period the Proclamator class Star Cruiser had been originally designed as a warship cousin of the Acclimator class assault ship. Unlike the Acclimator though it lacked the huge capacity for carrying troops and their supporting equipment and instead focused on anti-shipping firepower. Overshadowed by the introduction of the Imperator class and lacking the ‘taint’ of the Republic that saw the Venator class side-lined, due to its short service life with the Old Republic, the Proclamator would continue to see service in the Imperial Navy alongside the Victory and Victory II class ships, fulfilling a similar role to those ships.

But whereas the Victory class was built more for anti-shipping work and was the ‘gun’ to support the Venator’s massed fighter wings, the Proclamator was designed to be flexible. Armed with six triple heavy turbolasers and six quad medium turbolasers the ship lacked the raw punch of the Victory class. But, thanks to the addition of 21 quad light and heavy blaster mountings for anti-fighter work the ship was far more dangerous for fighters to attack. Four large hanger bays, each capable of holding a squadron (12) of fighters as well as smaller numbers of shuttles and support craft let the ship carry 48 fighters, double the Victory class’s fighter capacity.

Capable of carrying 1,800 troops as well as their equipment the Proclamator could help quell any rebellion on a planet and support other vessels with its fighter complement, acting as a light carrier. Like the Victory II the Proclamator wasn’t built in great numbers before the end of the Clone War but the class was seen as a successor to the crew intensive Dreadnaught class and as an able support ship for the Victory in less critical areas and so was retained in production. By the outbreak of the Galactic Civil War and the rising of the Rebellion hundreds of Proclamator class ships had been constructed and away from the huge Imperator class ships they were often used as flotilla flagships due to their larger fighter capacity compared to other similar sized ships. In Imperial service the common mix was 36 fighters and 12 bombers, but this could be changed as needed. Less important sectors that relied more heavily on older ships like the Victory, Dreadnaught or other Clone War era vessels often built task groups round a Proclamator or when they were available, a Venator class ship.

Scores of Proclamator’s also saw service alongside front line Imperial battlegroups, albeit in a supporting role such as protecting supply ships and acting as a rearguard. Here the ships somewhat limited sublight speed wasn’t seen as a hinderance and many a Proclamator found employment as convoy escorts and Rebel raiders tended to avoid the heavy fighter umbrella offered by a Proclamator. In combat the ship was quite capable of overwhelming the Nebulon class frigates used by the Rebels as well as Corellian corvettes but were outclassed by heavier warships and several Proclamator’s did fall into Rebel hands, either captured or salvaged and returned to service. But their large crew requirements made them somewhat unpopular craft in Rebel service.

That’s generally pretty good.
A couple of points for improvement:
Fractal has stated that the Proclamator was the predecessor to the Acclamator, from which the Acclamator was developed.
In Legends at least, a TIE/sa bomber squadron was 8 ships strong so as to fit their larger frames into a standard squadron hangar.
There are 12 quad medium turbolaser turrets and 27 point defence turrets (each point defence turret being a heavy laser cannon turret mounted alongside a light turbolaser cannon).
Those three points of research aside, this is well written and believable. I particularly like the bit about not it being sufficiently well known as a Republic Navy ship to make it unpopular with the Empire.

They are roughly 70m wide if my measurements are right. So you can fit multiple dropships or even 2/3 skipray blastboats with fighters on the ceiling.

I’m not certain if you’ve been asked this before, but have you ever considered making redesigns of the canonical star destroyer-type ships like the Victory I-II, Imperial I-II, Acclamator, Venator, etc? Every original creation I’ve seen from you appears to be far more sensibly designed than they were, with fewer glaring vulnerabilities and better turret layout (except for this one, for some reason. Why no superfiring dorsal batteries?). Hell, to my eyes this ship basically IS a redesigned Acclamator!

Even if the answer is no, I’d still appreciate hearing your response. I’ve always loved your work, Fractal, every piece you show the world only further cements that feeling. Thanks for all your efforts, and please keep up the good work!

The problem with this Eckhart fellow is that he has 300k subscribers, and some of his videos have over a million views. He is reaching a fairly wide audience of Star Wars fans, many of which are pretty young and impressionable, who will carry those ideas throughout his life. That’s a lot of brainbugs, and I wouldn’t be surprised if future EU comic/novel/game creators are among them. Someone ought to fill him in on the Curtis Saxton consensus before it gets too cringeworthy.

Love this design – a true multi-role heavy frigate, and mini-murderwedge.

I know the hangar arrangement is taken from the Rand Ecliptic – what do you think leads to this design, rather than the more typical axial position? Does it just have to do with the position of the reactor?

Look at the size difference between this thing and the ISD. Blimey. I never really compared the Acclamator to the ISD before. In AotC and The Clone Wars series we see Acclamators on the ground or in an atmosphere (like this: https://youtu.be/4ob3faux-T8?t=10s), which gives us a sense of their scale, and we can see that they’re big. But these pictures really drive home the point to me that the ISDs are effing massive. I bet the Rebels got their hands on a few Acclamators (or Proclamators) during the Galactic Civil War, perhaps early on, before the Mon Cal cruisers became their main capital ships. I bet they’d have been good ships for the Rebels then, but still, you wouldn’t want to take on a Star Destroyer in one, would you? At least, not without a fair bit of corvette and fighter support, anyway…

Hey, Fractal, I’ve noticed several instances of people asking information that has been disclosed before (in this case, length/it’s relation to the Acclamator) so could you, perhaps in the future, add a description of the vessel in question in either the first WIP update or in the final product so there is a place we can point to when such questions are asked?

Eh, at least Tector has some onscreen precedent (i.e. one shot in ROTJ where the Falcon buzzes said ship’s ventral surface). Might be interesting to see how much extra firepower a gunboat-variant Impstar would pack.

Reply to  gorkmalork

A ISD1 counts 8 turrets with each 2 cannons of 175-TT (FractalStats, somewhere in the stardestroyer.net thread or the turret post). 16 x 175-TT makes 2800-TT. The Allegiance-class is roughly 2.6 Impstars in volume with a heavy weapon power-output (3x 720-TT HTL, 56x 175-TT HTL, 12x 175-TT ion) of roughly 5 times a ISD1. So a gunboat-variant can have almost 2 times as much firepower (when reactors scale linear)

Actually it is 6 twins 175 tt heavy turbolasers that the Imperator 1 have, the other 2 turrets are the 175 tt heavy ion cannons.

Little edit: Fractal stated length was ~880m and output was ~1.5e24.

And for anyone who’s interested, here is his description of the ship’s design lineage:
“The Acclamator design took this as a starting point, swapped the reactor for something a lot lower powered but a lot cheaper and with a lot higher endurance, and started cutting away a lot of mass in terms of weapons, armor, and protected hull volume. That allowed them to drop a few main engines to maintain performance on a smaller and cheaper powerplant (and to further cut costs for numbers/expendability), and they used the internal space liberated by secondary reactors and such along with some of the old hangar volume to carry their troops and dropships.”

Love this design and I second the notion of making Fractal the official designer for new Star Wars-ship classes.
I wonder how many fighter squadrons this baby can field, one of each of the four hangar bays?

Also what is its full weapon layout? Can it battle other medium capital ships and fighters alike or is it more of a pure anti-Corvette/anti-Frigate vessel?

gorkmalork

Reply to  Sephiroth0812

I seem to recall Fractal mentioning an average of 1 squad per bay in one of the earlier WIP threads. Since its main guns are roughly Impstar Deuce ballpark (40-teraton HTLs), it can certainly thrash things out with Dreadnaught/Vindicator/Immobilizer-tonnage vessels, and might be able to threaten Victories/Venators with a numerical advantage (i.e. 3-on-1).

The more I learn about this ship the more I like it. ^__^
When it can carry 4 fighter squadrons and is powerful enough to duke it out with Dreadnaughts and Vindicators evenly (an Immobilizer would stand no chance against a Proclamator due to its light weaponry and high energy drain) it is a very versatile ship. 3 of them being capable of taking on a Venator seems to be also plausible, as their 12 squadrons together could at least hold the Venator’s massive fighter complement off for a while and when the Proclamators manage to get into a position where the main turrets of the Venator can’t reach them they’ll win the engagement.

Having very tough armor is the main advantage of the Dreadnaught, but it is also slow as heck so besides weaponry advantage the Proclamator would very likely also have speed and agility advantage, making the Dreads advantage in armor questionable or likely irrelevant for the outcome of an 1 vs 1 engagement.

Proclamator has heavier armour than an Acclamator, it might well rival the Dreadnaught class. A larger armoured structure, but the hanger bays/wells would be its weak points.

You sure about that? The hull armor of Acclamator-class vessels was impregnated with ultra-dispersive neutronium that withstood and spread massive energy blasts. Meaning that whenever the Acclamator’s armor gets hit by a energy weapon, specifically any kind of turbolaser the energy blast is harmlessly spread across the entire hull and then dissipates, even powerful weapons like fusion rockets didn’t do anything to the armor. Overwhelming fire power is required to destroy the armor like the firepower of a star destroyer.

On top of that they’re armed with 12 quad turbolasers rated at 200 gigatons of energy and force per shot and 24 point defense cannons rated at 6 megatons per shot. They also had 4 proton torpedo tubes.
