One of the earliest examples of Mon Calamari ship design - predated only by the similar (and plainly named) Mon Calamari Light Freighter - is the DeepWater-class freighter. Mon Cal shipwrights developed the vessel as a commercial shipping craft, the backbone of a proposed planetary trading service. The Mon Calamari Commercial Expeditionary Service was eventually - and abruptly - dissolved by the Empire and the fleet of light freighters were sold at auction to private owners. Roughly 10,000 such vessels were produced.

Like most Mon Calamari designs, individual DeepWater freighters are slightly different, crafted as unique works of art rather than a mass-produced homogenous ships. However, most DeepWaters are roughly similar in size, shape and internal construction; the exterior differences are largely cosmetic.

The DeepWater is a fairly standard light freighter with a small crew complement, modest cargo space and durable engines. A single top mounted laser turret and better than average hull armor and shielding supply the craft's main defenses. A civilian-grade sensor package is housed in a deployment dome on the DeepWater's underside. In addition, the craft has different types of landing gear that can be deployed as needed: a landing claw ( to stabilize the ship when docking with another vessel or an asteroid), standard landing gear and inflatable puncture-proof pontoons for landing o water.

Jusik: Ordo...
Ordo: Yes?
Jusik: Ordo, you just flattened an ARC trooper.
Ordo: He was delaying us.
Jusik: But you hit him. Twice.
Ordo: No permanent harm done.

There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.

this is definately something they could come up with. Well done!

Thanks :D Making a mon-calamari-esque design was probably the most difficult part about the whole ship. It's mostly a mix of the cruisers' design and random shapes :D

finally someone gives the calamari a starfighter they got cool ship but they need there own starfighter ( i don't count the b-wing cause it doesn't have a mon calamari look like this)
AdamKop Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah I don't think the Mon Calamari ever had a fighter designed. I think they just preferred to use big ships :D

I like the rounded "vintage" shapes :heart:
AdamKop Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Thanks! It is indeed one of the most "retro" ships I did lately. It could pretty much fit even a 60s sci fi comic book :D
Feliane Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yesss, retro is the right word :D I like the design, it reminds me of the old Hollywood movies I loved so much when I was a child ^^

I'm really happy to hear that :) Star Wars was the first sci-fi movie I saw so it will be most likely a foundation for all of my designs. It's really cool doing something that brings up good  memories, especially if it's something as great as the SW universe.
