I like it. Will it feel something like the Praetor mk 2 from ICW mod?

can also launch corvette class ships from these hangers? Does that mean we can store CR90's in these massive ships?

No specific length was ever given for this ship, only a comparison made to the size of the Viscount, a ship which also varies in its described length.

I have considered this a lot, and this is the conclusion I have arrived at: if the MC80 wingless (shown above in pic) is 1200m long, and that is already considered a heavy capital ship, making the Mediator 8500m is a bit unrealistic. For the sake of the mod, I have created the Mediator about 4050m. It is still one of the most largest vessels yet small enough that it can be seen as a support ship for larger vessels such as SSD and the Viscount.

How would its fire power and shielding be compare to the Imperial battle cruisers like Preator-II and Bellator?

WOW fantastic model!

Small question: How strong is it compared to the allegiance class star destroyer or the bellator class star destroyer?

Allegiance is only 2200 m, so the Mediator is much stronger.

Compared to the Bellator, the actual length (for our mod) has not been determined yet. The ships will both be similar in size however. The Bellator will have stronger shielding, but the Mediator will have much stronger armor (better vs vong). The Bellator will have stronger weapons, and carry more fighters. The Mediator will have more long range weapons (missiles and tri-turbos) but the majority of weapons (in gun blisters) are medium and light strength.

Overall, the Mediator will last longer than the Bellator vs the Vong, but the Bellator has more stronger weapons (good vs Vagaari, Hutts, Chiss). The Mediator will be limited in production (3), the Bellator will be a one time build minor hero, but will come at a price...

Subterfuge is a weapon far more powerful than lasers...why fight when you can have others fight for you?

How many polys are on that thing? And you told me never to put extensive amounts of turrets on ssd class ships, as it would be too much of an increase in polys lol.

Also about sw lore, I'm very interested how anything in space could survive an internal nuclear explosion, that sounds a little...impossible.

The mediator has less polys than the Blue Diver, and has less turrets than the MC 85.

A shuttle carrying a nuclear warhead docked inside the mediators lower docking bays and was detonated in an act of sabotage. Due to the compartmented design and added internal armor reinforcement, the nuclear detonation exploded outwards, severely damaging the bottom back end of the ship, but bringing no harm to other hangers, engines or the rest of the ship.

Unlike other capital ship designs, the Mediator was armored internally as well as externally to give added protection to the large internal space of the hangers. The additional armor allowed the Mediator to withstand severe punishment while fighting till the very end..

Internal armor would've been great incase the outer armor would be blasted away, though that'd make the ship infinitly heavier. Still, a nuke can level a city, you'd think no armor would be able to protect a mere starship. In sci fi, screw physics I guess.

Not even sure I ever came across a nuke in the sw universe, going to look that up.

Surviving a nuke shouldn't be that difficult. The largest nuclear device exploded by us mere Earthlings was the Tsar Bomba, 50 Mt (capable of up to 100Mt). According to AOTC:ICS, the quad turbos on an Acclamator-I deliver 600 gigatons per shot each, which would be equivalent 6000 Tsar Bomba's and those were massive weapons. So assuming that those Acclamator shots don't simply cut right through a true warship (Rogue Squadron series repeatedly mentions turbos CHEWING into capital ships, not slicing through, so one can infer that even after the armor is gone that it takes some effort to completely destroy a ship), it would be hard to imagine even a shuttle load worth of nuclear device being able to destroy a Mediator outright. Also, most of the energy would be deflected into space anyway, you'll lose some structure to the initial fireball but it shouldn't suffer too much in the way of shear stress.

I didn't know that a simple turbolaser had THAT much punch behind it, holy hell, I thought it was more like the kotor cutscene where it was just a slight explosion for each turbolaser hit where the Leviathan destroyed taris. And I thought durasteel was similar to normal steel, just a bit stronger, not like THAT. This means a bunch of this durasteel can easily hold up a nuke, well that solves the case as to why nobody tries to use bullets, or large shell cannons anymore. Learning a lot today.

That can be explained by the Sith ships having weaker turbos/reactors than their counterparts 5000 years later, the turbos weakened by travelling through atmos, and the energy of a turbo being in a single direction (not like a nuke which explodes outward). Or the favorite explanation for game canon that doesnt make sense... it is adjusted for gameplay mechanics :D

I heard the Imperial SSD dished out 5.6x10^24 Tetratones of energy that sounds OP to me....

And then that is why they don't use nukes, turbolasers do the job just fine. Learning even more today.

Description

MC Battlecruiser: Mediator Class

Developed in in collaboration with the New Republic, the Mediator is the the frontline assault answer to everything. The role of the ship was to fulfill the need of a large capital ship that can serve as a focal point for strike fleets, function as a mobile base and take on multiple heavy class warships without support. Unlike other Mon Cal ships, the Mediator features exceptionally strong armor instead of superior shielding: reinforced armor that is so strong, the ship can survive the blast of an internal nuclear explosion, and continue to function.

The Mediator class feature 2 ventral fighter hangers, 2 forward flank strike craft hangers and 2 mid section repair hangers for passive repair of nearby frigates and corvettes. The mediator can also launch corvette class ships from these hangers. The massive size and reinforced armor allows nearly all of the ships weaponry to be housed inside armored gun blisters. The only external weapon systems are the massive long range triple barrel heavy turbos, which there are many. The Mediator also features heavy anti-capital ship missile launchers allowing it to obliterate other ships of its size and keep on fighting.
