Look at the LucasArts official site:

Shot 1, 40, 50, and 59. 50 is probably the best pic of reference, as you see them up close.

There are Imperator Class ships ("Normal" Star Destroyers), Immobilizer Class Interdictors, and Republican "wedge ships". But what are those smaller ships?

They're about corvette-size, from the look of them, so I assume it's some sort of anti-fighter craft? It's not a Lancer (effective against fighters) or a Strike Cruiser (very neat ships), and to be honest I don't think I've seen them before I saw them in this game.

The shape sort of reminds me of a Dreadnaught (http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/dreadnaught/eu.html), though it's hard to tell from this angle.

That's the best I could do to get it enlarged. Looks like a heavy dreadnaught.

To me it seems they almost look like Carrack Light Cruisers up close, though they seem alittle large for that.

But then you have a better view of the one behind the 2 as you get a bright background (the planet) and it doesn't quite match up to the Carrack Light Cruiser design either. :/

I don't know what that is to be honest. Maybe something new?

Dreadnoughts or Carracks were my first guesses, too, but they don't look like them...:confused:

I remember this ships well from TIE Fighter - that old game from 11 years ago - they were cargo ships then - sort of transports - who knows what they are now. I also assume that you guys know that Episode III weapons and stuff will be in also ?!

Yes, but it's fun to try and figure out what ships it is nontheless. :)
They do seem familiar, so that could very much be the case, Master_Cain.

Small comment: Not easy to see the exact lenght of it, but it looks almost as long as a Dreadnaught, perhaps alittle shorter, Nokill.

I'm quite familiar with the Dreadnoughts or Carracks and that is not one of them - I recall well shoting them in the - TIE Fighter game - they were transporters - and I had to shot their containers or them. I belive they may also be now transport corvetes or something - who knows - but the small transport carrying wings under their belly and the design is very simmilar.

It's good to see the EaW team going so back for ship models - ahhhhhhhhhhh I hate the PR concepts - why I have to wait until after the Episode III for this secrecy to stop ?! - ohhhh well I will comply and keep my mouth shut :(

I'm replaying my copy of Tie Fighter and I'm not seeing what you're seeing.

You're thinking about another ship. There is none like that in Tie Fighters and I played it often enough.
There are ships that slighty ressembles those but these are too large to be them. They weren't cargo transport, it was called a system patrol craft I think.

EDIT: Here's a better look http://www.lucasarts.com/games/swempireatwar/images/screenshots/10.jpg

Best picture of it yet.

I'm replaying my copy of Tie Fighter
Something good came out of this thread! I'm proud of myself!

It's not a pure freighter-craft, as far as I reason. It's possible that it's an armed freighter, but it's probably a corvette-class ship of sorts, designed to support larger vessels or give you some fire-power early on before you can build those mighy Imperators and Victories. You see them fire in one of the screen shots.

'm quite familiar with the Dreadnoughts or Carracks and that is not one of them - I recall well shoting them in the - TIE Fighter game - they were transporters
Dreadnaughts and Carrack Cruisers are definetly not freighters. They may have dubbed as them in a TIE Fighter mission, but they're warships. Trust me.

And they weren't. Both the Dreadnought and Carrack cruiser were warships.

And he was talking about those weird ships. He recalls them as transporters in Tie Fighter...oddly, I don't remember them.

Your picture shows it quite clearly. There is none like that in Tie Fighter. A few ships do look a bit similar but nothing perfectly like that.

Could it possibly be a dauntless-class?

lukeiamyourdad
03-13-2005, 11:59 PM
These ships are imperial and the Dauntless was an Alliance warship.


http://www.lucasarts.com/games/swempireatwar/images/concept_art/3.jpg

I think that's the Dauntless, but I'm not sure.

Master_Cain

Hmmm you guys seem right - it must be a small combat vessel - but the design I'm sure I have seen it in the TIE fighter - similaqr at least.

AHHHHHHHH got it - this new ship is an Episode III ship like the Aclamator - that is why we don't know it !

And nope that is not the Dauntless here it actually is :

Should I make a topic with all of them ?

Do you mean "SW ships"?;) (Teasing, no offense).

Who doesn't love the Quasar-class carrier (it's such a nice ship it could make you weep)? http://www.swrebellion.com/hosted/cain/Previews/4.JPG

The Escort Carrier, another... carrier (duh). Would maybe make a nice inclusion into EaW, but I guess that's too late now.
http://www.swrebellion.com/hosted/cain/Previews/991.JPG

Strike Cruiser: Another one of my favourites.
http://www.swrebellion.com/hosted/cain/Previews/998.JPG

Lots of nice ships there. The Lancer frigate, the Carrack cruiser, the Dreadnaught, the Assault Frigate... I could go on and on...

The Quasar looks weird. Really.

Master_Cain

They are Rebellion Remaded Cards :) fom a Rebellion Mod - kind of Rebellion II.

The first one is the Alliance Escort Carrier.

The second is the Imperial Escort Carrier - fully retextured to look like the 3D model.

And the last is corect - the Strike Cruiser :)

Exactly. The Quasar-Class Escort Carrier.

The second is the Imperial Escort Carrier
Didn't say it wasn't a carrier:p .

I bet nobody knows (A Rebellion player may know)

It's a Xyitiar-Class Freighter, I think (mis-spelled the x-word, I'm sure). It looks like it, at least. It was in X-Wing Alliance, too.

Jan Gaarni

Aaaa, been awhile, but isn't that the Bulwark Battlecruiser?

Supposedly the rebel counter to the Executor Class SD? :)

Master_Cain

Jan Gaarni is corect - let us go to the next question :


What ship is this ?

http://www.swrebellion.com/hosted/cain/Previews/93.JPG

I will try to select ships that are a little more modified to trick you.

But this is not that kind of thread.

And if it turns into one, then I'll move it.

Corect answer - this is a heavly modified CC-9600
:)

To bad I don't have webspace to host more pics :( Until then what is this ?

http://www.swrebellion.com/hosted/cain/Previews/91.JPG

Should I rephrase my last post? :D
