In AotR the design of the Nebulon B2 gives the Empire a much needed small frigate with an additional bonus of anti-fighter missile weaponry. Its additional missiles were inspired from its portrayal in the early Star Wars flight sims. While not a large threat to fast moving fighters, the missiles will be effective against the slower bomber craft of the Black Sun and Rebellion.
The model itself has been put together through the help of nkorn, who took the Battlefront Dice Nebulon B we have currently in the mod and adjusted it to look more like the Nebulon B2. On top of that, parts of the old EvilJedi model were re-purposed, such as the wings and bridge, to move the design closer to the original portrayal of the ship.
And before anyone asks... the ship is no longer buildable by the Rebellion, but may find its way into their hands through... other means.
