This can actually be done in the patch. ES did it with the Korean Turtle ship.

I suggest this because the Star Destroyer Cheat Unit has Air Cruiser stats, and looks way better.....

Anyone agrees?

Well i think the aircruisers for each civ should be-
Republic - Republic Cruiser (start of ep1)
Naboo - Naboo Cruiser (start of ep2)
Trade Federation - Battleship
Empire - Star Destroyer
Rebels - Blockade Runner
Wookies/Confederacy/Gungans - original art

Interesting choices, but I think the Imperial air cruiser should be a smaller ship, such as the non-movie Victory Class Star Destroyers, as the star destroyers seen in the movies are so frickin huge they could never even come close to a reasonable scale.

The republic cruiser should be the ones seen during the clone wars at the end of Ep II....essentially small, landable, early versions of star destroyers.

Other than that, I agree with you on the gungans, naboo, wookies, TF, rebels, and confederacy.

I thought the Rebel one looked like a Correlian Corvette with just a big gun on top.

I like all of them, except the Empire one.

JCB - just remember the clone ship is a transport, not a warship.

While I don't normally conslut these sorts of things, I recently was given the cross sections guide as a gift and it says that the "Acclimator-Class Republic Assault Ship" (the mini star destroyer things seen in Attack of the Clones) are capable of, and I quote:

"Orbital bombardments with high yield proton torpedoes and surgical turbolaser strikes [to] hit enemy fortifications........armies entrenched deep underground may be subject to a last resort..........fleet bombardment. Such operations reduce the upper crust of a planet to molten slag..."

Sure as heck sounds like a warship to me. :)

Its weapons would have to be greatly scaled back, actually, to give it the standard air cruiser's level of power.

If you're talking about the CC patch, it's not out yet. MaulUK indicates that is should be available at galacticbattles.com on Thursday though.
