I am stunned. Will any faction in particular use this, or will it just be buildable at Yag'dhul?

The Givin lean more to the Hutt affiliation, for they believe the fool hardy Galactic Alliance cannot clearly see the math in the sheer number of invading forces. Logic tells them to side with those who are aligned with the invaders.

We are not attempting to fill the mod with Clone Wars units. A battleship can remain in active service for some time. USA battleships are built off of technology from the 1920's and even though built in 1942, still remain in active service today.

A space battleship can last much longer. The Wavecrest was superiorly engineered by the Givin, and still proves to be a worthy foe.

the venator were used well into the vong war so that just proves that if the design is effective it will be in service a long time

Venators were all scrapped and decommissioned. There were no mention of any Venators in the novels. They will not be in the mod.

I'd like the sauce on that - the Heavy Assault Cruiser dates back to the old republic but is still in service. As for the Venator being scrapped... No way. Weapon Specs:

"The armament of a single Venator-class Star Destroyer consisted of eight DBY-827 heavy dual turbolaser turrets, two medium dual turbolaser cannons, fifty-two point-defense dual laser cannons or turbolasers,[14] and four heavy proton torpedo tubes.[8]"

While not as well armed as more modern ships - it could have been easily upgraded and retrofitted. Though I understand you already have plenty to work on.

There are thousands of venators in the galaxy. Some still served in the empire, private defense forces and pirates. They lasted for more than a hundred years into legacy. I highly doubt that not one faction or any faction that wasn't mentioned perhaps never used them. Whether this applies to the primary factions or private factions.

This is a good point, Daala had a modified Venator in her Maw Fleet, and two Venators assisted the Evacuation of Dac in the Legacy Comics. However I don't think that Venators should be buildable anymore--perhaps there may still be a few lying around in use by pirates or local defense fleets.

Interesting, I stand corrected. Thank you.

We will include some, but they will not be primary weapons for the main factions. Too many mods have Venators all over the place... we have more interesting things for you to play with...

There is not any battleship from EEUU at active. In fact most of them were decommissioned or sold few years before vietnam war and no one from WWI battleships were running more far from WWII. Navy.mil

All USA battleships were made in the 1940's. The last active use of a battleship was the gulf war. I just took a tour of the Battleship NJ. On the tour, they taught us that even though the battleships were made in 1940, they were all based off of technology from the 1920's.

Battleship NJ is huge, longest in the world. Interesting fact: each of the 3 main turrets is 5 stories tall, and they go down to the belly of the ship. When a battleship turret turns, the entire tower column (that's the gun on top and the 5 stories of ammunition) all rotate as one unit.

By the way, there were 3 battleships used during gulf war. The New Jersey was the first to ever fire tomahawk cruise missiles.

Technically, the technology subsystems used aboard the US battleships in WWII that made them so successful compared to those of other nations were 1930's -40's technology (Radar, Fire Control, AA guns, etc,). The other things like UAV's, Harpoons, tomahawks, phalanxes, also came from later rebuilds. However, the basic design of the battleships had not really changed since the Washington Naval Treaty that stymied the development of the battleship in an effort to end the arms-race for the ultimate battleship. Theres a really good graph on wikipedia denoting the increase in battleship displacements vs yr where this is easily visualized. The side-effect of the Washington Naval Treaty was that the main systems (armament, armor, propulsion, displacements) of WWII battleships was very similar of 20 years before (these are known as "treaty battleships" and make up the majority of the ships used until the second half of the war, think battleships that were at Pearl in 1941). The Iowas. to which the NJ belongs, were designed with the benefit of wartime experience that emphasized fast ships that could keep up with the carriers, which is the only reason that they lasted so long.

So using the venator example, the Impstars were a late-war design of capital ship (like the Iowas) that were outnumbered by the workhorse venators. But after the war , the impstars are a much better design to use as the primary ship in the fleet because they are more versatile and can be used as a carrier, transport, assault ship, anti-capital ship, and terror weapon. whereas the venators were pretty crappy anti-capital ships. Not to mention the Impstars generated wayyyyy more power than the older ship. Also, one would imagine that old palps would want to destroy all the symbols of the republic that he could, esp symbols that were closely assoc with the jedi like the venators.

At least a squadron of B-2 serviced the New republic during the war they were called the orange panthacs and effectively countered the vong fire breathers. BTW will this ship carry a starfighter complement?

well look at it, would you use, let's say, a WW1 Mark I tank in Gulf War? I suppose you wouldn't ;) CIS battledroids would be hopelesly outdated even during the events of the Galactic Civil War (Ep IV to Ep VI), and Yuuzhan Vong War begun roughly 26 years after The New Hope (Ep IV) ;)

I love the design of the ship. It seems to compact, but it's huge. Completely different from anything in vanilla EAW.
