Description: The Revenge Class Heavy Carrier is a command vessel which is an evolution of the Venator Class Destroyer used in the early days of the Galactic Empire. While a power vessel in its own right, the Revenge Class is usually the centre of a fleet of Cruisers and Destroyers, used to project the Empires might where ever trouble might flare up, with masses of fighters, walkers and troops, the Revenge Class is capable of dealing with any problem which might arise. Like the earlier Venator, the Revenge class has two command towers, one used for commanding the vessel, the other for commanding its fighter squadrons and other allied vessels. However, unlike the Venator, these are not both on the upper hull of the vessel, the normal command tower is in the position expected on an imperial vessel, while the fleet operations command tower is mounted on the lower hull. The vessels fighter and transport bays are mounted around the edge of the vessel, with the main launch bay being mounted between the twin forward prongs of the ships hull, allowing vessels launching and landing (as well as the bay itself) to come under the protection of the many weapons mounted on these prongs.

Just because something looks interesting doesn't mean that it is actually interesting. In fact, what at first glance seems cool, suddenly turns into a let down when good ideas go bad.

What you have here is an example of something that at first glance seems far out but close inspection reveals a great redundancy and a tragic waste of resources.

No one would waste the construction materials you have here on one ship. Not even 'The Empire' with its seemingly limitless supply of raw materials. It's just too much.

What I would suggest is, instead of putting an entirely redundant conntower on the ventral side of your ship is mounting some large caliber cannons on it instead.

Something like this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/23200126@N04/7688952416/sizes/c/

Now, giant guns on space ships is something I can get behind because they are cool as all get out and if you need any inspiration, use battleships from World War 2. That is where Lucas himself drew from in most of his space combat scenes; air-to-air combat between German Messerschmitt and Japanese Zeros vs. American, English, et. al.

See also Space Battleship Yamato, sweet techy example at http://www.ourstarblazers.com/vault-images/stacks/chapter500MovieMod/500MovieMod04.JPG from the main page located at http://ourstarblazers.com/vault/500moviemod/

You could get really technical with your designs as you can see, those little details really make a ship go from OK to Smokin Ace.

Best regards,

Hello, Rookstar. This write-up was done by a fan who sent it in to be uploaded, just like a lot of other entries on the site. Personally, I think the Empire would and could do something like this ship. In the pre-Disney Expanded Universe, there was a plethora of massive and powerful prototype ships and super weapons made by the Empire that required access to immense resources and materials, left lying around in various parts of the galaxy. Some of these were even made by non-Imperial sources, such as the Darksaber by a Hutt crime lord, who had access to much less resources and materials, yet was on the verge of making a weapon that could destroy planets.

If you'd like to write up the variant ship with the heavy cannons as you described, you can do so. Just write it up, then send it in via email to me and/or Freddy. Hopefully, we'll get around to posting it sometime.
