Star Wars Vindicator class light carrier by HandofManos Star Wars Vindicator class light carrier by HandofManos
Final version of the Vindicator Class light carrier.
This ship is capable to carry half a dozen of squadrons along with an decent defensive/offensive capability.

Armed with 8 dual medium turbolasers, 18 point defense lasers and 5 quad lasers (against those pesky A wings) the 5 times bigger then the Dagger Class heavy corvette volume wise. In length is still quite small compared to a Imperial Star Destroyer only being around 250 to 275 meters

Could you make a Helghan ship? Either a replica of a real one from the Video Game series or an artists depiction

Personally I'd love to see a few of these Vindicator-class Light Carriers surrounding a Revenge-class Heavy Carrier along side a small force of supporting vessels

i like pocket carriers most supercarriers are dreadnuaghts in thier own and thus not really efficent to bring onto the field, just something small that can deliver some fighter bombers but can also hold its own agaisnt enemy frigates can really help alot

Small ships certainly do have their part in any major fleet action. And like you said large ships are an own tier and costly to maintain not to mention main targets during fleet engagements.

Amazing ship design, I love it!
One problem though. I hate being "that guy" to point out stuff but I think the Vindicator-class name already got taken. :\ [link]
Don't get me wrong, this ship is absolutely amazing and the whole name thing is minor but I just wanted to give you a heads up about it.

It looks rather like a class that could have origins during the Clone Wars: a practical-sized vessel suited to the coping with strike-and-run tactics on Republic shipping lanes.

Unlike the mammoth Star Destroyers — which are as much about projected image as actual utility — such ships and their descendants would be focused on real operations in and around the Core Worlds... and provide highly mobile support for the big fleet ships in large scale engagements.

Yup more a specialised and cheaper design for use as an escort carrier or a taskforce leader

I agree, I really like this design as it's a practical size, I often feel anything over the size of a 2KM size is really pushing it. 2000M to be is a size that is on the boarder line of practical and unpractical.

I hope someone does a 3D version of this design or some orthos are released. This is a sweet design.
