Star Wars Puncture Class Imperial Corvette by AdamKop Star Wars Puncture Class Imperial Corvette by AdamKop

:iconpaulreinwand:
To begin with, it's a gorgeous design, thru and thru. Lots of nice little details that are both pleasing to the eye and capture the imagination of any scifi fan.
The unfortunate departure in the design however comes not from the design itself, but the chosen point of existence in the timeline. Certainly a ship of this size would be welcome to the SW's universe, but the silhouette is a striking departure from anything of the era. The 45 degree swoop of the wings are sleek and elegant, and the rounded turrets look fully functional and deadly, but neither of these elements hint back to a unified and functional fleet design. To elaborate, the wings were perhaps meant to be reminiscent of bombers and interceptors, but again, lack any design element that would bind the two together. Similarly, Imperial turrets are bold and blocky, while these bear muted planes.
The pallet used and defining lines are clearly Star Wars, however this is a design I feel is better suited to the likes of the Old Republic.
What do you think?

I love it but would't the upwaard wings reduce the arc of fire? Unless you balance it with greater manoeuvrability of course...

Thanks :) The wings don't really go upward very high, and turrets only have a 90 degree arc of fire, so it's more helpful for defense against lower-positioned units.

I think it fits into the timeline you mentioned and I think it fits in line with the Imperial Customs Corvette and the Customs Frigate ([link] & [link])

What's the scale of it?

AdamKop Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I'm not sure exactly, but it should be around 500-600 meters in length. Surely smaller than the typical ISD :)

This looks more like a design from the Great Galactic War (The Old Republic) era, particularly the Sith Empire.
Palpatine's Empire prefers brute force and menace in appearance, while the Sith Empire incorporated these and a sort of elegance very present in this Corvette.

Hmmm yeah I guess that the Palpatine's Empire is more about controlling things with fear, but it's actually surprising that there were no other ships introduced, ones that would bet able to take on all the medium-sized Rebel units. Hell, the Blockade Runner should be an indication that something's wrong with their defences :D

Picket duties were taken up by ships of the Carrack, Lancer and Tartan class- but Corellian CR-90s like those of the Alliance Fleet easily outran the Imperials' ships.

Yup.
Ever play Star Wars: Empire at War? Great RTS. I highly recommend it and its mods. But if you get it, don't JUST get the original version, get Gold Pack with the Forces of Corruption expansion back.

Well there was a time when I was crazy about Star Wars games, but I only got Star Wars Force Commander for the PC (everything else was on consoles) :P I don't have much time these days, so playing a game that requires a lot of time is just impossible.

Yep it's pretty small so it could land without a problem :)
I will try to finish it up today but the panels are causing me a bit of a problem, because they're on a different angle and I have to measure them one by one.

by the way your last line of text reminded me a lot of the moment in futurama where the professor says 'a man can dream though , a man can dream' right after the fing-longer scene

Ah I didn't watch that episode :D I just hope that these dreams will come true one day. I poured hundreds, if not thousands of hours into Star Wars simulators (I even bought all Rogue Squadron games and Battle for Naboo on the very day they were released) and I would like to repeat that in HD :D

awesome, i didn't have them all, the ones i do remember are battlefront, rouge squadron on the 64, ( i have heard there are more but i have not seen them) and Shadows of the Empire

i loved pretty much all the star wars games , but the flight ones are by far the most fun

Thanks :) I like putting details on the ships because I think they make the ship and are the deciding factor if its appeal - it's one of the strengths of the old shows such as star trek as well.

AdamKop Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yep that was also the idea. I was always wondering why the Empire was fighting only with the tiniest fighters and most menacing destroyers, while smaller Rebel vessels could easily take out the TIEs and run circles around the ISDs.

Majestic-MSFC Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Indeed, for a military you need ships to fill all roles. Perhaps it's part of the reason why they lost at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel ships could do things the Imperial ones couldn't.

Yep, the Imperial fleet was very imbalanced - everything they built was useless against Fighters :D

Yeah there will be three more on the bottom but only one be visible :) I want it to also have a hangar for three or so fighters/bombers that will aid it. Anyway, the turrets are more powerful than anything that the Rebels have so it's enough :P
