I LOVE this ship, I’ve been looking for something to cover that mid-space between armed freighter and corvette. It is like the *perfect* size for a “hero” ship. Curious on so many things (internal facilities? cargo capacity?)–three questions if you’re willing to answer!

  1. How many missiles/torpedoes can the ordinance tubes hold, or are they single?
  2. Could the tractor beam be replaced with an ion cannon?
  3. Could a quad laser (or other anti-starfighter turret) be added above the engines to cover the rear arc?

How feasible would it be to replace the missile launchers with ion cannon?

Or you can use Ion Missiles/Torpedoes.

Depends on how quick you’re using them up and how much you have available for resupply. Energy cannon have the decided advantage in efficiency of ammunition storage.

Wasn’t there a fighter-scale repeating ion canon in the WEG stuff, or am I making that up?

Nothing explicitly repeating per se, but WEG damage and fire control values were aggregates, so any rapid-fire capability would’ve been represented by the Damage and Fire Control dice values.

Would it be reasonable to assume that a quad-style ion cannon turret is completely reasonable? Configuration obvious shifts to suit barrel arrangements and what-not and suppose it’d run a bit higher on the power-demand scale, but still workable at a gunship/corvette scale.

I still want one of these as my armed personal ferry as I travel through the galaxy in my Bellator… 😉

This is an awesome design! BZ from a retired USN officer! Can you tell me the crew complement and are deck plans available? I love seeing the interiors of these ships as they relate to the overall design. Thank you.

Love it! In my head, I imagine the two twin turrrets being medium turbolasers, the four quad turrets being light turbolasers, and it also having at least two twin or quad heavy laser cannon turrets, and at least two Concussion Missile tubes.

As I recall, Fractal once stated its armament to be 2 twin light turbolaser turrets, 4 quadlaser turrets, and 12 ordnance tubes.
I may be wrong about him stating that, but those are his twin light turbolaser turret, quadlaser, and ordnance tube assets.

That’s what I counted.

Is this mistakenly tagged as WIP, instead of Gallery? Because it doesn’t look like a WIP.

Great design. What role does the Intersector play in the Imperial Fleet? Patrol? Fast attack? Jack-of-all-trades?

I’m guessing the true purpose of this ship is chasing down pirates and smugglers in YT hot rods. Also, can you confirm what the dimensions and armaments are?

Awesome design!! What software are you using to produce these models? If you don’t mind me asking.

Can the guns on the mandibles rotate to fire behind and do they have a clear field of fire?

My second favorite thing you’ve ever done. I just think this thing is cool. Would have enjoyed seeing it with a Lancer. I imagine a more creative Outer Rim commander doing wolf pack groups of these and Lancers to chase after rebel light freighter traffic.

A Imperial Falcon? Nice i love it. are the Top and bottom dual weapons Lasers or turbolasers? the smaller quad ones seem to be anti-Fighter Lasers. If the dual cannons are Turbolasers this thing would pack a serious punch for its size

The duals guns are light turbolasers. There are also missile tubes on the underside of the mandibles.

Technically, ULTRA light turbolasers in the Fractal-verse. Forget the yields, though.

What differentiates an ultra-light turbolaser from a heavy laser cannon?

By mandibles do you mean the wing-like flaps near the engine? If so I see the 5 tubes.

No, look at image Sloop78-1. There’s six missile tubes on either side of the bottom of the mandibles.

Very awesome looking 🙂 A great alternate take on the YT-1300 design. Also, those comparison shots with other ships have been really helpful getting a since of size for these ships.

Also, speaking of which; How does this thing compare with the classic YT-1300 in terms of size? It definitely seems a little taller.

So, ~70 meters-ish? IIRC, the length of the Falcon based on film evidence was put at ~35 meters.
