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.

Which is precisely WHY we shouldn't.

Besides, who says it has to be a gunship.  Anyone in the movies ever call it a gunship?

Its never mentioned in the movies. It's just there.
However, having an unarmed ship is kind of lame, no? Why would the rebels send an unarmed ship to Endor?

Wait...they sent a whole bunch of Gallofrees...

Those have a few turbolasers or two on them though, right?

I think the explanation was that they were used as fire ships.

Hmm...fire ships...I dunno...

Anyways, I still think AWACS is a perfectly reasonable role for an unarmed ship that would be sent with a large fleet into a combat zone.  And with the (proportionally) large sensor dishes on this thing, it at least fits visually.

Ah but are they actually sensor dishes...

I wonder?   :P

Fire ships were cheap old crappy boats packed with flammable stuff, lit on fire, and steered into the enemies' (presumably more valuable) ships.  In SW they would likely be packed with explosives and slaved to another ship to avoid the whole suicide mission aspect.

As for the turret placement, I bet you could get a couple compact external turrets into the heavily greebled areas on top and bottom without killing the ship's lines.  You could also have more internalized turrets in those intake bubble things, like waist gunners on a WWII bomber, and maybe a couple facing directly forward (on either side of the bridge?) and back (between the engine outlets?).  Looking great btw.

The forward-sticking bits on top of the main rear greebling would probably work as a main-gun-type turret (the ones sticking forward through the wide-flat-thingey...)

Right. I'll look into that....  :)

 
Just wasting some time. Its crazy that two of these little guys took down a Carrack in the Battle of Endor.

That hugeass window always makes Carracks look smaller than they really should be.

The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

 
Haven't made any turrets here, either... suggestions?

Looks cool to me, though I admit I've sort of forgotten where they could end up going.  I think I prefer the top option--looks a bit more turbolaserish, but still a unique design.

 
Done UV mapping!
