Looks like it has 4 engines mounted (2 each side) out away from the hull in the top and bottom pics but then there is no sign of them in the middle pic.
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

 
There are only two of those boxes, and they're both on the top. You can see them in the side profile as two slender squares rising above the profile. My guess is that the engine(s) is underneath the ship where there's an opening.

Here's an update, with a fighter for size comparison. It's not very big, but it has a lot of weapons for its size. Eight laser turrets and eight missile launchers. I guess it's the rebel equivalent to the Lancer.

Is that a cloakshape I spot?

=============================================================

 
Yeah. Last weekend I was studying for a final exam and got bored. Needless to say, I don't think I did too well on my exam.

 
Can you add an original Cloakshape to this mod? :P

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

It's also visible in the background in Sullust. Or at least I think it's the same ship.

The Braha'tok gunship was for many years known just as the "Y-head corvette".

It can actually be seen in that scene at Sullust, but it's not the the one you think, but this one:


(upper right part of the image, above the small engine of Home One)

As for the model, I like what I see :yes:

It looks like the whole back end is an engine. Thanks for the pic, Col. Fishguts.

One of the Home One's engines from the looks of it.
(´・ω・`)
=============================================================

 
It's not covered in armour, so it looks seperate from the rest of Home One.

Yeah Home One is huge and has a great variety of engines.  Here's the gunship's appearances, for anyone who hasn't already watched this video obsessively:

Here are two more reference pics I found on my backup HDD.

On the second pic it can bee seen head on in front of the 2nd Death Star.

Great job on these updates!  I love seeing updates on this site that isn't people arguing about steam!

Well...if we ignore the recently made-up EU stuff about this ship, what could it be for?  ECM or AWACS?  The dishes on the sides could certainly lend themselves to that, and the stuff sticking out above the dishes could easily be some sort of antennae array.

It's a gunship.  It has to have guns.  If there is no room for turrets you'll just have to add a lot of windows for R2-pack to roll down and fire out of.
