Pocket Star Destroyer Concept by quacky112 Pocket Star Destroyer Concept by quacky112
This is a design for a "pocket star destroyer" being smaller than a full sized star destroyer but larger and more powerful than a regular cruiser.

Its about 900 meters long, armed with 12 ion cannon batteries, 16 turbolaser turrets, and 1 heavy turbolaser. Also has two hangars on the side of the ship, although their closed in this render, figured it could hold 30 or so fighters.

Tell me what you think please comment! Download for better view

edit: I changed the original file a bit, made the lighting and shadows better.

Terrific stuff mate. Really nice design and perfect niche role. There never seemed to be enough heavy cruisers in service in legends. Looks very solid, almost like the Defender-class of the New Republic but better :D.
Yeah, amazing design though. I feel it could do with some external 'greeblie' surfaces, probably along the brim-notch. The armament layout also doesn't feel quite right with the single quad, and are the sensor and such concealed or? Perhaps the quad needs a buddy or two, placed along the centreline. Just my thoughts, similar to Ansel Hsiao's Allegiance and Procursator designs. All in all looks great and very smooth, with the drawback that it seems it would mean a non-standard sort of layout where comms equipment is internal primarily. Eh, I dunno. The armoured look is very nice also, just a shame about the repetitive plate texture but then it's hardly noticeable so... Awesome.

btw, download not working for me. It may be a wider issue.
Oh oh and another question, how do you create these? Is it google sketchup still like with the Venator?

Thanks I am glad you like it.  I wish I still had this file, I lost it when I my last computer crashed, I always wanted to revisit it and make it better with more detail.  And yes I used google sketchup to make the model and v-ray to render this particular one.

The hull contours are slightly similar to those of Venator, so is it supposed to be Kuat design? And what era do you position it in? Maybe, one of the the last experimental ship for the Republic Navy was the first in this line? Or may it be Palpatine's private research proect of the same time (19 BBY)?

By the way, 900 m long? Hmm... And what is the size of its' main turret in that case? Possibly, this should be only 1.5-2x bigger than EF76 Nebulon-B frigate, i.e., 450-600 m long?

Great work! It's nice to see, others have as nice designs in Star Wars universe, as the film had. You've commented on one of my ships, but it was far from ready. I would be happy, if You would see the finished product, when it's ready.

By the way i would imagine the side somehow else, but as You modelled it, looks a pretty hard, unbreakable structure. A siege Star Destroyer :D.

Loved the tower! It's unique.

Best wishes, keep up the good work!

I'll stay in contact. Greetings from Hungary!

Overall, very nice. The command tower seems a little cock-eyed, but it might be the viewing angle throwing me off.

I like symmetry too. I attempted to make one of my Axe-tail ships asymmetric in the style of the YT-1300, but I couldn't come up with anything I liked.

Interesting basic shape. A bit like that Customs frigate in one of the comics.

It does have an immediate SD feel to it, so I'd say you're on the right track.

Nice. This shares some design elements with the Gladiator-class Star Destroyer. Intentional?
