Love these workhorses of the Imperial fleet. Excellent model.
Love to make this on space engineers on xbox tho it’ll be difficult id love to try and build these designs gonna start doing it with your permission of course
What do you consider is being tanked over? Water/Air or some sort of fuel as well?
Probably fuel in the pic, I guess it could ‘replenish’ a combination of all you mentioned, though as I understand it, SW ships have pretty efficient air/water reclamation systems.
Given the small volume of coaxium in Solo, at least some fuels probably don’t need to be tanked the way diesel-powered ships do on Earth. So either coaxium isn’t the only fuel needed, it should be struck from our minds like the midi-shall-not-be-named-ians, or it’s tanking something else.
In a hypermatter-powered galaxy, coaxium still works if it’s an essential component or an additive of some kind, like dilithium crystals in Trek (per the TNG Technical Manual, the matter/anti-matter reaction actually takes place inside a dilithium crystal suspended in the reactor core).
Hypermatter. It’s mentioned in the various cross-section books that a lot of capital ships run on hypermatter reactors.
What is hypermatter exactly
It’s just the ‘exotic fuel’ that most big Star Wars ships seem to use. I wouldn’t try to get too technical about it. If you want some theories, Google it. 🙂
It is neutronium or quark-gluon plasma or a Quantum Slingulaitry Qauntum Zero Point And Qauntum Reasonce Based fuel source or dark matter dark energy dark flow exotic matter negative matter strange matter degenerate matter
Coaxium can’t be the fuel itself if we’re talking matter annhilation. I’m guessing key additive.
So you’re saying that you think of coaxium as the nitromethane in the hypermatter “gasoline”? That’s an interpretation I can get behind…
Over a year ago the meta merdz lore has made video about Altor class and Imperial tanker
I would love to see this in cannon, a squadron of Y-wings taking one of these out would look so cool on screen.
Amazing design Factal! congrats!
I like that you did some renders with the starfield background. It makes for better wallpaper imo.
Replenishes fuel, water?
Hypermatter fuel. water can easily be recycled onboard ships to very high degrees of efficiency.
900 meters? Less?
Please share side/orto views of Juggernaut. Thanks
Holy moly this is AMAZING! Love the connectors and everything, it really shows how it would work and I love logistics units like this 🙂
New geo looks great.
Ansel, I was looking and you have a greeble out of alignment on the very front. Its the round generator thing on the front vertical face.
Oh she workin’… She workin’ REAL hard.
