Mod Note: Please use this thread for help/discussion on vehicles and ships, including but not limited to space combat and warfare. Well I hope this is the proper place for this. I've been working on a fan fiction for some time now and none of my friends are as heavy into the technical aspects and EU as I am. Though I do hesitate to say technical as this is probably more rule of cool. Still I could use some opinions on whether it sounds plausible(?), coolness level, things I could change etc etc. I think I wrote most of this in the middle of the night so it's not my top tier work, but I think for the most part it gets across what I wanted it to. --------------- The Victory Garde-I Class-Star Destroyer, Also known as the Victory G-I Class-Destroyer, and colloquially the "VeeGee," was an ad hoc unofficial variant of the Victory 1 Class Star Destroyer. Characteristics/History With the introduction of the Imperator Class Star Destroyer into the fleet, and the phasing out of the older Victory Class Star Destroyers into secondary roles many ships found themselves delegated to Outer Rim system defense, and planetary defense roles. Where the glaring problem of the older design hampered its continued service. Thanks to its under powered LF9 sublight engines the Victory I many times couldn't keep up with newer vessels. The Victory Garde design was originally the brainchild of Admiral Ky Soon Shin, an Outer Rim Admiral. With the numerous Venators that were simply abandoned in deep space it was simple enough to salvage the necessary parts to retrofit his star destroyers. Each Venator was stripped of three of its primary engines, and tertiary engines along with its main batteries and many of its point defense laser cannons. Thanks to the already sturdy space frame, only minor reinforcements of the hull were required in the engine mounts and stardrive sections to permit the installation of the new engine mounts. The tertiary engines were mounted on the port and starboard wing structures. The DBY-827 dual heavy turbolaser turrets were mounted on either side of the command tower. The point defense laser cannons were mounted mostly along the trench, while other were placed along the hull to help provide adequate starfighter defense. The missiles launchers were re positioned to either side of the wings. Ion Cannons were added as well, to allow the Victory Garde to disable escaping smugglers. Thanks to the more powerful reactor on the Victory Class it could provide adequate power to all its weapon systems. Despite not being officially recognized by the Imperial Navy hasn't stopped the spread of this variant to other sectors in the Outer Rim. Although each ship is usually slightly different due to financial reasons, or availability of parts. Though most can be recognized thanks to the very bright drive flare, and over sized main batteries.
