I'm glad you decided to go with this idea. I mean just look at that engine it has it's tiny. The role makes perfect sense with how the ship looks and I think the Rebels needed a low cost damage sponge in their fleet.

Wasn´t the mc80 wingless supposed to be tanky? Will it be replaced now or does it have a different role?

Needless to say this looks beautiful as allways.

How I have the ship set up currently, the Wingless is a multi-role frigate basically. Heavy shields, weak armor, good anti fighter weapons and a few ion cannons and turbolasers to help against heavier ships. It really is the most multi-role ship in the mod I think.

The AF MKII will specialize in just tanking a whole lot of damage, both in armor and shields, while not doing much else. It'll be relatively cheap so it's a lot more spamable than the Wingless.

Wait so this one is the AF MkI or the MkII? didn't the MkII have quite a bit more weapons added as it's basically kinda a dreadnought hybrid?

It's the AD Mk II. The MK I looks a lot like the original dreadnought and Nebulon B had a baby. the MK II looks almost Mon Calamari like because it's so bulbous and bulky.

So this replaces the in mod ship that has the turbo laser battery platforms on either side of the ship? I'm not sure what the platforms are actually called but they're indents or pockets on the side of the ship with 2 turrets each.

With the role of tanks being added, what about the infamous dreadnought cruiser?
I think only evillejedi which everyone uses and farseer made a model each.

There's several models but I don't particularly like any of them, honestly.

Description

Model and texture: Doci
Rerigged by me to fit with the rest of the mods style, fires, engine glows, shield mesh, all dat good stuff.

The Assault Frigate will take up a unique role that isn't really explored by mods in general: Tank.

Tank as in, the ship will have one turbolaser, two missile launchers, two shield generators, an engine hardpoint (very few ships have this), and 14 untargetable quad lasers. The weapons will do very little damage but the ships shields and armor are going to be extremely heavy, so heavy that an ISD will be able to pound on it for quite a while before the ship goes down.

From a gameplay perspective, this is the ship you can safely send head-first against the enemy fleet while your far more fragile and fast units (mc 30, corellian heavy gunship, other specialised hit-and-run ships) are safely behind this floating heap of durasteel, not taking damage.

This ship can occupy the enemy fleet for a bit while you do your micro intensive work, and since the Rebellion is a very micro-heavy faction, with lots of specialised fast but fragile ships, I felt like a unit like this would fit the faction very well.

So in short, very slow, doesn't do a lot of damage at all, but capable of taking extreme amounts of damage.

Thanks to Doci for his amazing work on the model and its texture, and for letting me use them!
