YZ1025 Armed Transport by HandofManos YZ1025 Armed Transport by HandofManos
Finished the work on the armed freighter for :iconKralithus: Made a few slight changes like more detail on the heavy gun in the middle and obviously colors :)

Information provided by Kralithus:
Name: Profit Margin

Owner: Ebris Dhifi
Make: Corellian Engineering Corporation
Model: YZ-1025 "Aurochs" Armed Freighter
Dimensions: I'm envisioning it at 72m in length - large enough to contain all the weapons and components it has, as well as all of its armoring, but also not so huge as to be unnecessarily ponderous. As for width and height, those can be up to you based upon the design you come up with.
Skeleton Crew: 1 Pilot, 1 Co-Pilot/Navigator
Optimal Crew: 1 Pilot, 1 Co-Pilot/Navigator, 2 Gunners, 1 Engineer
Maximum Crew Size: 10 Crew/Guests, 5 Prisoners
Complement: 1 Speederbike (stored on ceiling hooks in cargo hold), 1 Landspeeder, 2 Class-5 Escape Pods (holds 5 each max)
Armor: Alusteel/Durasteel composite, with Impervium plating covering critical components
Cargo 
Cargo Space: 150 tons (smaller than a vessel for its size due to increased weapons/components/armor)
Provisions: 3 months worth
Speed: 70 MGLT
Atmospheric Speed: 1,300 km/h
Hyperdrive: Class 1.5; Class 7.5 Backup

The information provided was really helpful in getting everything smoothed out and it was a pleasure to work on this ship

As always your work impresses. This is just another perfect example of a great piece of artwork:

Vision:
Star wars is one of those arenas were almost everyone has tried something or some configuration in terms of design. Developing an original piece that also ties in clearly to the universe is difficult. This design takes a vision for a armed cargo ship and goes to town with unique and classical elements.

With a clear link to the universe, the design invokes elements of the Millennium Falcon and Slave I/II. The dish and weapons emplacements are common place in the universe that they seem perfectly placed.

The overall configuration though establishes a unique and stylistic ship with its own personality.

Originality: As I said previously, these designs are difficult to create something original. While your design does borrow elements and ideas from existing ships in the universe, it does so while remaining its own style and feel. Much like vision, you build a piece that is decidedly its own in the way of look and feel without borrowing too much from what lives in the universe already.

Technique: Its your linework. Enough said.

Impact: Overall, this design does a great job of bringing new ideas into the Star Wars universe while respecting the existing ideas and feel in the universe. Congrats on another beautiful design.

Correct me if I'm wrong. 
This ship is armed with a turreted dual medium turbolaser cannon, 2 turreted dual medium laser cannons, and 2 wingtip-mounted quad medium blaster cannons.

Wow, impressive to see where how polished this is from your earlier sketch! Always a good eye from that variable line weight use in your vehicle illustration that Scott Robertson mentions.

I really like it, but my laymen's eye keeps telling me the thruster section is twisted a couple degrees to starboard. other than that it's a great design! how would the landing gear work?
Reply
:iconhandofmanos:
HandofManos Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well spotted! Will see if I can change it when I get back to my work station. I think the landing gear would be pretty similar to the lambda shuttle with retractable feet with an entry ramp underneath the cockpit area (little behind it)
