C.S.A. Kor Vella Class Patrol Craft
The standard Corporate Sector Authority Patrol Craft represents the cutting edge of modern Corellian gunship design. While the C.S.A. Defense Force operates larger craft such as Cutters, Frigates and even Star Cruisers, the Patrol Craft in undoubtedly the backbone of its operations. These small ships patrol the space lanes of the Corporate sector and keep it practically free of pirate activity. In typical operations C.S.A Patrol Craft operate in groups of three when on patrol or convoy escort duty. When guarding especially large convoys it is typical practice to assign an entire wing of nine ships. This ensures that large freighters and their valuable cargo are well protected against even the most determined pirate attacks. The ship is heavily armed and armored. It has two forward Ion Cannons, five Proton Torpedo Launchers (four forward, one aft). And two forward double Laser Cannons. The ship has powerful shield generators for its size and a think armor belt to protect the command section. Kor Vella Class Ships are also regarded as having the most advanced sensor suits of any craft of similar size. The ships sublight speed matches an X-wing fighter. There are several variants of the Kor Vella Class which specialize in different missions. The Kor Vella-S is a sensor ship in which the forward Laser and Ion Cannons have been removed in favor of an even more advanced passive and active sensor suit. The Kor Vella-C is am armed courier with even heavier armor and is used to transport important C.S.A. officials. The final production version of the Kor Vella was the Kor Vella-H. This heavily armed version never accounted for more than 10% of overall Kor Vella numbers due to its high cost, but it was still considered an important part of the C.S. defense strategy.
About this creation
This is the only image of the bridge that I still have saved. It sits behaind the black armor belt under the round thingy.




Ventral View: This view shows the double laser cannons and the armored hull.




The forward Ion Cannons sit just aft of the powerful main sensor done in the nose cone.




The command room seats four and has no windows. Instead the crew relies on holographic displays to pilot the ship.




Each “wing” has a large thruster to improve maneuverability.




Forward view.




The front of each engine pod contains two proton torpedo launchers (four total) and the weapons targeting sensors.



The double laser cannons can be angled down, but do not rotate. The ship must rely on its maneuverability to dogfight with starfighters.




Powerful sublight engines make the class one of the fasted gunboats in known space. Between them sits the docking hatch and the aft torpedo launcher.




The aft docking hatch.




Dorsal View: This view shows the black armor band around the command section and the overall shape of the ship.




The gray-black color scheme of the ship was meant to appeal to C.S.A. design sensibilities.




Starboard View. This view shows how long and low the ship is. This makes it’s a difficult target for heavy turbolasers.




Forward View. This view shows the forward sensor in the nose cone and the low profile of the ship.

Quoting Alan Crisp I am going to have to comment on this MOC again, because ever since yesterday when I first saw this, I have had this design stuck in my head. I have been picturing in my head how to tweak those wings/engine assemblies, how to drop the floor a little bit to allow for more internal space, that topside black armor bit and what potential lies there, and several other ideas about this have popped into my head. I think I am going to have to build this. I will totally give credit to you, and state that I got this idea from you. I do NOT intend to steal your MOC or your idea or anything, but I just got so many ideas in my head from this MOC of yours that I just got to put those ideas to brick. I gotta create!
Sounds good to me. This is one of my favorites as well. The inside walls are about 4 bricks high on the sides and five in the middle, so it is a little cramped, but I could get mini figs in there. I will see if I can find the internal shots and post them today.

Quoting Alan Crisp Very inventive to use the Defiant design for a Star Wars ship; however, the integration of those tire pieces for engines could have been a little smoother with the rest of the engines/wings. They almost stand out a bit from the rest of the engine assembly. I think that if the engine assembly were maybe a bit bigger to match the size of the tire pieces, that would work. And, is there an inside to this ship aside from the bridge? Seems like there is room for a lot of interior stuff.
There is an interior that has a bridge, a bunk room, a small rec room and a brig. I am not sure why I didnt post the pictures though... It had seating for 4 in the bridge as well. There was also a small airlock in the back.

I could never picture the Defiant as a Star Wars ship.. But you have clearly seen what I could not! It may be due to my love of the Defiant's design that I could not see this on my own.. Very nice ship!

Wonder of wonders! This MOC ROCKS. I like the caption about its skinniness making it a hard target for turbolasers, it reminds me of the maneuver my Ssyphin Speed Fighter uses in tough situations. Check it out if you want!! :)

The sleek curved lines of the hull are very well built and the lack of windows adds a neat military feel. I would have sworn it was microscale, but you fit a detailed bridge into the hull. Nice job.

The black isnt really the window, its an armor belt. And yeah, I used the Defiant for inspiration and it is meant to look mass produced since the C.S.A. would likely have thousands.

Very impressive! Reminds me to the Defiant. Great job.

I really like the black slopes you used to make the windows, but the stacked wings you put at each corner of the engines just feel... boring. In fact it feels like it has a lot of repetition all over just for the sake of filling space. However, though I think it's pretty lackluster, it's design fits in well with the back-story you've provided and looks like something that could be mass-produced.
