Empire: Frigate unit Finished by HandofManos Empire: Frigate unit Finished by HandofManos
Final version of the Frigate. Armed with 4x4barrel turbo lasers, 4 missile tubes and 6 pop up laserturrets it also has a small hangar bay like its bigger brother the IS. It is only able to carry 4 Tie's or 2 Tie Interceptors.

In general these ships are used as escort units meant to defend convoys and stations against pirate or rebel attacks.

OK, this is one I'd pay for Deckplans on. Cause I could see my players raiding one of these.

Very Nice.
Your frigate looks kind of like a Acclamator class assault ship.
It too was used as a 
frigate in the Empire's Navy, I think.

WOW! Love the design. To me it's looks kind of like a Star Wars/Gundam ship design cross. Any way just some of my silly thoughts. It's really a great design.

this is cool almost cute in a way. its a star destroyer mini. with the big engines, wedge shape for the "body" and some sort of solar pannels like sensor array. the new part of this seems to be the guns are on both sides, top and bottom. I like it

Great design

you might want to raise the height of the bridge to help improve visibility during docking, or even landing, procedures and include another one of those small lasers facing aft to presumably improve its ability to handle swarms of small attack craft

:iconhandofmanos:
HandofManos Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Good point will add some kind of docking bridge and will add some additional (better) turrets

it is a nice looking ship.

the domes don´t need to vanish set them halfe in the hull like half sphers. for the fins i don´t know how but the don´t feel right.

The mountings of the domes and look of the fins don't quite work for me, but it is an interesting concept.

HandofManos Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmmmm I do agree with the domes and fins but at the moment I am not certain how, or with what, I can replace them.
