It's been WAY too long, and I know I'm doing a bit of Thread Necromancy here (I know, an evil art to be sure), but I wanted to add a new ship here before starting the posts for my Freighter Creation Thread (I have about 40 ships ready to go there).

 

This ship is a request from one of my new players: The Chir'daki.

I have a request if you have the time, a ship I'd love to throw at my players, the Agggressor Class Assault Craft.  The most famous one was piloted by IG-88 and named the IG-2000.  Of course this is a highly modified version of it. Here's the vital info the IG-2000:

I am sure someone requested this, but the Star Furies from B5, The White Star (Though something to do) & the White Star Battleship (Excalibur & Can't remember the 2nd one)

I'll add this one to my freighter thread I have going, as it is surely more of a freighter than a fighter (even though it has those capabilities, like the Helix). Keep in mind that a ship like this is going to be pure conjecture as we only ever see a modified version in action.

I don't think anyone has requested something from outside of Star Wars yet, so no worries.

 

I can try to stat up the Star Furies, but they will be pure guesswork and based off of whatever I read as I haven't gotten around to watching the series.

 

I'll try to get the Furies and the Vipers from Battlestar Galactica squared away today if time permits.I won't go after the capital ships yet as I am awaiting Age of Rebellion so that I can do them proper justice. That, and I have plenty of freighters and a few more fighters still on my docket. . .

Alright, I've had a nightmare of things with my move, BUT I was able to stat up the Starfury for you!

 

SA-23E Mitchell-Hyundyne Starfury

 

250px-Aurorastarfuryformation.jpg

 

Series: Babylon 5

Hull type: Starfighter

Ship Class:

Manufacturer: Mitchell-Hyundyne

Hyperdrive: Not equipped

Navcomp: N/A

Sensor Range: Short

Ship's Complement: Pilot

Encumbrance Capacity: 8

Passenger Capacity: 0

Consumables: 1 day

Cost/Rarity: Not available for sale (Estimated at 220,000 credits/8 ®)

Customization Hard Points: 8*

Silhouette: 3

Speed: 4

Handling: +2

Defense: 0

Armor: 2

Hull Threshold: 10

System Threshold: 8

Weapons:

 

4 Copeland JC466/A Pulse Discharge Cannons (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 6; Critical 3; Range [Close]; Linked 3)

 

 

2 Copeland JC44 Pulse Discharge Cannons (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 5; Critical 3; Range [Close])

 

 

*The Starfury has eight points to install extra weapons and ammunition, thus the high number of hard points and high credit cost for a fighter. Only weapons may be mounted on these points.

 

Creator’s Note: I have NEVER seen an episode of Babylon 5, so I can’t really help you with this one. I’m doing pure conjecture based on what I am reading, but it seems to be reasonably fast and agile; I didn’t make it Speed 5 as there seems to be faster ships that are nowhere near as heavily armed.

My project for the rest of the night and the weekend will be to stat up the Vipers and, if I can find the time and information, the starfighters from The Old Republic MMO.

 

Things may be a bit chaotic, but don't worry, I won't let this die until things are squared away :-D

That is the kind of stuff I'm looking for!

 

I've statted up the Vipers but they are on my external drive for work, so I will post them on Sunday as well as anything else I'll be able to finish.

The Vipers are done, and the next few posts will be dedicated to them!

 

Note: I made the Vipers rather expensive as they are purely military craft in the Battlestar Galactica Universe, but may not be considered as such in Star Wars.

I can see a reduction if they were mass produced and more prevalent, but I wouldn't put ANY of them any lower than a Z-95 in terms of cost.

 

Viper Mark II

 

275px-Bsg-viper-1.jpg

 

Series: Battlestar Galactica

Hull type: Starfighter

Ship Class: Viper Mark II

Manufacturer: Colonies

Hyperdrive: Not Equipped

Navcomp: N/A

Sensor Range: Short

Ship's Complement: Pilot

Encumbrance Capacity: 8

Passenger Capacity: 0

Consumables: 2 days

Cost/Rarity: Not available for sale (estimated at 140,000 credits)

Customization Hard Points: 3*

Silhouette: 3

Speed: 4

Handling: +2

Defense: 0

Armor: 2

Hull Threshold: 8

System Threshold: 8

Weapons:

 

2 Fuselage mounted Mass Accelerator Cannons (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 3; Critical 5; Range [Close]; Auto-Fire; Linked 1; Accurate 1; Breach)

 

Fuselage mounted Lightning Javelin Missile Launcher (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 6; Critical 3; Range [Short]; Breach 4, Blast 4, Guided 3, Limited Ammo 8, Slow-Firing 1)

 

 

*The Vipers are known to have areas to mount extra weapon pods or ammunition. 2 of the 3 Hard Points are for weapon systems only.

 

Note: I think I’ve balanced this out a bit. As the Vipers use rapid-firing railguns that let loose tracer rounds, I thought Breach and Accurate were proper to add to an Auto-Blaster.

here's the link for the site I found it on

http://www.starshipm...m/ugly_chal.cfm

 

05_ship-a-10.jpg

 

I saw on a discussion that was  basically an XY-Wing (or some similar approach to a name), but this adds a B-Wing into the mix! I can't see this becoming common because it takes all the flaws of a Y-Wing with the armaments of an X-Wing and B-Wing.

 

That said, I'll take a crack at it:

 

BXY Ugly ("Boxy")

 

05_ship-a-5_lil.jpg

 

Parts: Y-Wing fuselage, front cannons, torpedo launchers, shields, sensors. X-wing wings and cannons. B-Wing "wings" and weaponry.

 

Era: New Republic

Hull type: Starfighter

Ship Class: Ugly

Manufacturer: Variable

Hyperdrive: Class 1

Navcomp: NA – Astromech Socket

Sensor Range: Close

Ship's Complement: Pilot, Astromech; Gunner (available in BTL-S3)

Encumbrance Capacity: 10

Passenger Capacity: 0 (1 if using BTL-S3 without a gunner)

Consumables:  One Week

Cost/Rarity: Up to 95,000 credits / 8

Customization Hard Points: 0

Silhouette: 3

Speed: 4

Handling: -1

Defense: 1/1

Armor: 3

Hull Threshold: 10

System Threshold: 5

Weapons:

 

2 Forward mounted medium laser cannons (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 6; Critical 3; Range [Close]; Linked 1)*

 

6 "wing" mounted medium laser cannons (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 6; Critical 3; Range [Close]; Linked 5)*

      Four of these are located on each wing of the X-Wing and on two are located on each "wing" from the B-Wing.

 

2 "wing" mounted ion cannons (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 6; Critical 4; Range [Close]; Ion, Linked 1)

 

2 Forward-mounted proton torpedo launchers (2 Forward-mounted proton torpedo launchers (Fire Arc ; Damage 8; Critical 2; Range [Short]; Breach 6, Blast 6, Guided 2, Limited Ammo 8, Slow-Firing 1; Linked 1)

 

*It is possible to set the two forward mounted cannons to be linked with the others, bringing the Linked quality to 7.

 

 

Creator's Note: As the blurb made the ship sound TOO good, I went with my approach to writing up Uglies. The fuselage is a Y-Wing with some extra engines strapped on, but I believe it needs them just to even reach standard speeds thanks to the extra mass.

From what I remember, the B-Wing was given a very low system strain, and as this is just bristling with weapons (and a low chance of getting a better generator), I went with an even lower system strain to represent it.

It has the Hull closer to a Y-Wing due to mass, but I originally thought of making this a 9 instead. 10 just seems to work with this, but feel free to change it.

Shields were another debate due to the sheer amount of weapons. I may consider lowering them to 1/0 due to the power draw from the weaponry. Thoughts?

I stumbled on this one while statting up a few freighters and thought it'd be fun to add:

 

Amphibious Fighter

250px-Mon_cal_fighter.jpg

Era: Rise of the Empire

Hull type: Starfighter

Ship Class: Amphibious Fighter

Manufacturer: Mon Calamari Shipyards

Hyperdrive: Class 1

Navcomp: Yes

Sensor Range: Short

Ship's Complement: Pilot

Encumbrance Capacity: 8

Passenger Capacity: 0

Consumables: 1 week

Cost/Rarity: 158,000 (80,000 used)/7

Customization Hard Points: 1

Silhouette: 3

Speed: 5

Handling: +1

Defense: 2/1

Armor: 3

Hull Threshold: 10

System Threshold: 10

Weapons:

 

2 Wing Mounted Medium Laser Cannons (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 6; Critical 3; Range [Close]; Linked 1)

 

Special: The Amphibious Fighter can act as a submersible after configuring the shields. This configuration leaves the ship with 1/0 defense, and it can reach a maximum depth of 1,000 meters.

 

 

Creator’s Note: This makes an appearance in a comic, and little else is noted. As the ship was pitted against Aethersprites, I assume it had reasonable speed and handling with a good hull and system threshold like all other Mon Cal fighters.

I was concerned about giving this a 2/1 defense rating for the backup shield generators that are common on Mon Cal ships, but with the hull being closer to a Z-95 than a Y-Wing, I felt it balanced out.

I'm not quite dead yet. The holiday weekend has kept me a bit busy away from statting up the ships from The Old Republic, and getting my hands on Dangerous Covenants probably didn't help matters ^^;

Still not dead! Just started moving into a new place so all of my EotE stuff is in a box in one house while I'm packing up at the other. It puts a damper on statting things (even over on my freighter thread), but I'm still working on things here, don't worry!

 

If anyone sends or posts a request, I'll try to make it a priority and work on it when I can!

I haven't read, watched, or played anything from the series, so it'd be like the one Babylon 5 ship: pure conjecture. It's on my to-do list, but time has never seemed to be on my side for it.

 

The same goes for Space: Above and Beyond, Babylon 5, and even films like The Last Starfighter, most of which are sitting in a binder of DVDs since my college days, waiting for this odd concept of "Free Time."
