This is my small version of the Venator-class Star Destroyer. This will be in my comic. This Venator's name is "The Last Hope" because since Anakin used this one the most, and he was "The last Hope" they called it that. And this was the very last Venator.
About this creation
Name: Venator-class Star Destroyer
Nickname: The Last Hope
Length: 1,137 meters
Width: 548 meters
Heigth: 268 meters
Type: Troop transport
The Venator-class Star Destroyer, also known as the Venator-class Destroyer,Republic attack cruiser,and later Imperial attack cruiser,was one of the capital ships used extensively by the Galactic Republic during the later parts of the Clone Wars, as well as by the Galactic Empire. It was designed and constructed by Kuat Drive Yards.
While designed primarily for ship-to-ship combat,the Venator had secondary roles ranging from starfighter carrier,to military transport and battleship escort.The expanded carrier role made the Venator-class popular amongst Jedi starfighter aces.
As a popular multi-role warship of the Republic Navy, the Venator was considered heavily armed and armored enough to lead assaults on Rim worlds like Utapau as well as fast enough to chase down blockade runners.Due to being relatively less self-sufficient than other ships in the fleet, the Venator-class often relied upon supply lines to aid long-range campaigns.
These vessels also sported the red color of diplomatic immunity all Republic ships sported; by the beginning of the Galactic Empire, the hulls were deprived of this symbol of the Republic, giving them a dull gray appearance.
Offensive and Defensive Systems
The armament of a single Venator-class Star Destroyer consisted of 8 DBY-827 heavy dual turbolaser turrets, 2 medium dual turbolaser cannons, 52 point-defense dual laser cannons or turbolasers,and 4 heavy proton torpedo tubes.
The Venator-class's eight heavy dual turbolaser turrets were its main weapons and had two tracking modes. In its precise, long-range tracking mode, the DBY-827 could hit a target vessel at a range of 10 light minutes. During close-range fights, the turrets could rotate in three seconds with their fast-tracking mode.In terms of firepower, these weapons rivaled the main battery on the later Imperial-class Star Destroyers.
The DBY-827 had seven different power settings. This allowed the Venator's pilots and gunners to select a range of destruction, from a small strike to a vaporizing blow. As a true warship, the Venator-class Star Destroyer could divert almost all of its reactor output to its heavy turbolasers when needed. As a result of this, a flotilla of Venators could break through the shields of a Trade Federation battleship with ease.
At the suggestion of Anakin Skywalker, a heavy SPHA turbolaser cannon was installed within the ventral hangar bay of some Venator-class ships of the Open Circle Fleet. These weapons were meant to protect the Star Destroyers while they opened their long ventral doors to the army complement bays.They would be used to considerable effect during the Battle of Coruscant.
Venators were equipped with powerful engines, a Class 1 hyperdrive with an effective range of 60,000 light-years. Its main reactor could annihilate up to 40,000 tons of hypermatter fuel per second, producing 3.6 × 1024 watts of power.
Anakin, his padawan Ashoka, and Jedi Knight Qua-cor used this particular one, it's name is The Last Hope. Fed helped me name it.
