HistoryThe mainstay of the Galactic Navy during the Clone Wars, the Venator Star Destroyer balanced a role as platform for direct fire weapons and a platform for starfighter operations to the degree of having twin bridges.Design NotesThis version of an early Clone Wars Venator tries to showcase it's role as a Star Fighter carrier. I also tried to make it support the lore of the Victory being under powered compared to both the Imperial and Venator. Finally this design tries to fill a different play niche for star destroyers.My Venator II design will allow for improved weapons abilities and upgrades, but also reach an uncomfortable compromise that justifies the creation of the Victory class as a less carrier focused warship.About Adorable RocketMy designs all assume that Galactic technology has been pretty much mature for millennia. The differences in ships that we see between the Clone Wars, Civil War, and Force Awakens eras I see as a distinction of style and design philosophy. For example during the Clone Wars the Galactic Navy is not more primitive, but it is less industrialized and more concerned with the survival of it's soldiers, resulting in different tradeoffs.If you have a different idea of how the various eras relate you'll likely be unsatisfied with my designs.
