Upgraded Republic Cruiser used during the Clone Wars
About this creation
Upgraded with weapons and improved sensors, the Consular class cruiser was pushed into service as light capital ship shortly after the battle of Geonosis. Although outgunned by true 'Frigates', the ex-diplomatic transport sported impressive deflector shields and engines, making it suitable as a blockade runner or transport for important personel - wisely retaining the role for which it was designed. This class of ship makes numerous appearances throughout 'The Clone Wars' CG series.
This is my first experiment with the Digital designer, and frankly I was amazed by the results. Sticking to my old traditionally constructed design, i was forced to ommitt the ventral turbolasers, due to lack of space, but may redesign the hull to accommodate for thhe guns at a later date.
