Scum & Villainy Huge & Epic

So after the announcement of the Scum & Villainy faction units release, there was much appreciation and much disappointment. I predict it's going to be a hit with Boba Fett being bigger than Darth Vader regardless of what fluff lovers hope for in the future. Darth Vader mind you had to be put out first being the game that it is, but the heavy weights of the S&V can make their grand entrance later. That being said, I have still no doubt that S&V Huge ships will be produced before Imperial Huge ships, just because it makes perfect sense. Anticipation = ++$$.

So I'll start this off with some possibilities for a good S&V Huge ship, and I promise it isn't going to be a boring old piece of gray pie. Let's get a couple of unlikely behemoths out of the way first as I don't expect to see such iconic ship in the third faction: According to Wookiepedia the Black Sun syndicate had acquired Venator-class Star Destroyers & MC80 Liberty type Star Cruisers...

Interceptor-class frigate
At 175 meters, a much more likely candidate for a Scum and Villainy Huge ship.

Crusader-class gunship
At 200 meters, more than a match for the CR90.

Minstrel-class space yacht.
The most likely of all Scum and Villainy Huge ships,
at 160 meters, Jabba's own personal corvette-size ride.

And of course the Black Sun Gozanti

So which do you think are likely? Criticisms and suggestions? Stat predictions? 
I know a lot of people would like to force choke FFG designers for not bringing out Imperial Huge ships, but I see it as a good sign for new faction ships all around.

Money on DP-20.

Affiliation

Hadn't thought of this as anything but Rebel but looks like I was wrong. That is one very battle ready pirate ship.

Mobquet medium transport

At 79.3 meters this odd design may work as a G75 equivalent.

YV-666 light freighter

At 62 meters another good GR75 equivalent.

A Mon Cal cruiser?

An iconic Rebel capital ship that's the size of an Imperial Star Destroyer?

Not a serious suggestion as I said exactly because it is too big, and also yes very Rebel, but still worth noting that Black Sun had them, and that's all I was doing when I mentioned them. But thanks for pointing out that I could have been clearer, I'll fix that.

If we get the Wild Karrde, I hope it will play for Rebels and/or S&V since in the book series Talon Karrde eventually joined the Rebels. Either way,It would make a nice addition to the huge ships.

My new favorite ship I believe (after the DP20 of course).

The Star Jewel Guard was a squadron of six Z-95 Headhunters that served as a part of the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure's criminal organization. Six of the squadron's pilots were stationed aboard—and acted as escort to— Jabba's personal space yacht, the Star Jewel.

I'm surprised how similar in stats to the CR90 it would be.

If we do get the Action VI transport, I'm sure that there will be a Title card for the Wild Karrde, probably giving it the option to have some offensive weaponry.

That crusader class gunship. I love it. Will think of some stats for it tomorrow, but they might be on the conservative side as I don't want to over do it like one guy did with a DP20.

That guy with the DP20 is still in the playtesting phase...

I was not aware until I dug a little deeper for info on this ship that it is a prequel ship.

since when? it's from the Heir to the Empire from 1991, way before the prequels happened.

Maybe you can tell me what ship that is in the top picture in the bottom right corner? It's been suggested it looks like the Wild Karrde and I tend to agree since the nose has the same drop and the overall shape. I'm not saying it was invented by George Lucas for the Prequels, I'm suggesting it could be reserved for a prequel faction huge ship. I'll have to take another closer look - it's also possible I need new glasses. Edited by SithShadowPirate

I thought this was a different ship, but apparently it has a variety of looks,

and even better it has a thirteen laser cannons.

I think it's going on my must have list, whether it's FFG or Shapeways.

Ah I took the intent of what you wrote in a different way. Squinting at that picture after blowing it up a lot, yeah I can see that being a cameo of the Wild Karrde in the same way there are a couple YT-1300s parked on the left of the shot. Just like they put the Outrider into the background of Tatooine in the special in a bad way edition. Considering you see it in all of one shot though I don't understand why you think it needs saving for a prequel game that may or may not ever happen, it's a very prominent EU ship from the novels in the classic era.
