I’m such a Legends nerd, I saw the thumbnail for this and INSTANTLY knew what it was! Awesome deep cut from Fractal (as usual)!

I’ll be honest the through-and-through hangar in the ships spine does make me a little nervous structural integrity-wise, but apart from that stellar job, as always.

Best corvette sense your corvette. Is yours still cannon? It needs to be for sure.

What’s that ventral aperture at the fore of the ship? If it’s a massive space laser that’d be sick

Docking clamp for boarding operations. This thing doesn’t have the power density for another big gun.

ah good point thx, still it seems pretty damn big/unwieldy if it’s just for docking

Really nice work, I kind of miss the small turrets at the fore of the ship, but looking at the other stuff you added it made me forget about it.

This looks like it could be at the root of the Mediator-Class…

I can’t imagine how, seeing as there are no official images of the Mediator, and any sort of family tree linking an Imperial special operations transport to a Mon Calamari battlecruiser would have to be very convoluted, indeed.

Very nice. How does it compare in performance with your other corvettes like the Aiwha or Indictor?

I can imagine a Spector pairing up with a Velox to compensate.

From a special operations perspective, pairing it with an Indictor (as a remote comm/scan/control platform) makes more sense.

Awesome! Glad to see this obscure ship getting some love. I’ve always found it annoying that the official name for this was the ‘Imperial Escort Carrier’, which always redirected to the Ton-Falk carrier when searched for. So Spector-class Storm Commando Carrier’s a great choice!

For me it is incredible!
I would just make a change, put a storm command in the hangar bay.

I get LAAT gunship vibes from the body shape.

In my mind, the dorsal turrets near the bow look similar to the 12.7cm (127mm)/50 Type 3 guns used by the Imperial Japanese Navy’s destroyers from the Fubuki-class up to the YĹ«gumo-class. This includes Shimakaze.

What is the length on this ship? I saw one source that said it was 150 meters, but when I scaled it out with the 3 side-by-side TIEs and the 20 meter Stormtrooper Transport in the hangar, it looks like 300 meters.

In his early post he said it was roughly 270 meters

Oh, it’s beautiful. What a gorgeous model. You know if I am ever in the financial position to commission a piece, I’d do something from the Expanse. Fractal’s style would work so well in the grounded, hyper-realistic setting of the Expanse

Amazing! Would love to see a ship like this in the Mandalorian.

Absolutely, amazing work, as always! Thanks also for providing the top down view – I am going to incorporate this beautiful new design in an online top down tactical battle using the old WEG 2nd edition mechanics.

I agree, orthos are always incredibly cool and useful even just to get silhouettes
