As always Fractal is accurate in all of his models. Fractal models are always accurate down to the every detail. Quick question, Are there any auxiliary bridges, or is it like the Imperial-1 and 2 classes?

Where are the hangars?

What little official description we get of the Tector is quite clear that it doesn’t have a hangar. Fractal was generous giving it the one that it got.

The Tector class does is not equipped with any hanger facilities, instead focusing on Battleship capabilities, and not a Jack-of-all-trades. There is no stormtroopers on board, we can infer that it has a smaller crew compliment.

He still need some bay as it is easy to load supply route. Easier than getting supply ship or station close and dock with Tector directly.

Thanks for the info. What do you think are it’s compliment?
(Shuttle, Stormtrooper) Would you do a halo ship?

How much do you guys think this baby would cost compared to the ISD?

Well, I dont really have any attached numbers to this, but the cost of any ship would be primarily determined by its powerplant and/or armament (though in warships these two usually come hand in hand) and in this case we can outright exclude the hull itself from the calc, which leaves you with 1,8-2 times the cost of an ISD

Thanks, I saw one of fractals old comments about that and decided the cost to be about 270 mil.

why couldn’t the standard ISD have this much-improved gun layout? look at them side by side, it’s obvious the ISD has a BAD layout for its primary battery.

What would the role of this ship be compared to the standard ISD and the Allegiance-class?

I think Tectors are meant to be purpose built battle line brawlers, with increased armor and weaponry at the expense of fighter and troop compliment, while the Imperial-class is meant as a somewhat multi-role ship that’s simultaneously an imposing battleship, a TIE fighter carrier and system-wide force projection platform, and a mobile stormtrooper garrison that can throw troops and light walkers at problems on the ground. I remember seeing Tectors described as needing carrier support, and something else saying Gladiator-class frigates were initially meant to be support carriers for heavy battle lines before their roles were diversified. This gave me the the impression that someone decided that Tectors and Gladiators were meant to work together, and it seems like it would be a pretty effective sort of fleet composition.

Tectors are kind of like the precurser to the allegiance class. Tectors would have been in the same role in the Republic fleet as Allegiances are in the Imperial Fleet.

If you look at the two ships side by side not only is their weaponry and layout similar but so is there design and they both opt to get rid of their hanger bay for a bigger reactor and increased armor.

So basically they are heavy star destroyers.

The tectors size was about the same as a ISD so 1.6km.

Tector the only armaments we know about it are from Fractals version.

So
12 twin heavy turbolaser Turrets

2 heavy twin ion Cannons

2 heavy Quad turbolaser Turrets

8-12 triple medium turbolaser Turrets

Unknown number of normal turbolaser cannons and Point defense.

The allegiance was around 2,200 meters

And was equipped with

12 heavy Quad turbolaser

6 heavy Quad ion Cannons

3 super heavy ion Cannons or turbolasers

Unknown number of turbolasers, Quad turbolasers And Point defense Cannons

It’s got a few meanings, thatcher, masculine, a Calvary trooper with a big shield

The last one is probably it, since the ship’s lore is that its an ISD with heavier armor and weaponry

Tectos are actually closer to the Allegiance class design and weaponry wise then they are Imperator’s.

Any particular reason you moved the 2 ventral bow triple medium TLs further aft?

How would they endanger the ship, they appear to be akin to thrust vector panes for increased maneuverability like modern jet fighters like the F-22 use.

Love this ship, amazing work. Just never understood whey Imperial ships always skimped on placing heavy weapons on the undersides of their ships.

Because it means hauling guns unable to contribute to the fight in a very big sector.

I have always believed that the tector was less well armed than the imperial. I was largely wrong ^^

ISD mk I: solar ionization reactor, no power issues
ISD mk II: same reactor, more guns, still no power issues.
Tector-class: basically the same ship. larger guns,closed hangar(?) [additional generators to occupy space?], same reactor.

Id love to see the ISD mk I with a republic paint job and see these babies in formation with some Venators.

Same, and with the ISD1 bridge tower. The current “Imperator-class star destroyer” has an ISD2 tower. It’d be great to see Fractal’s Imperator with an ISD1 tower in Republic red. Salivating at the thought.
