This is the Fulgor-class Pursuit Frigate, an Imperial frigate designed with the capacity to outrun and disable almost any ship in the Galaxy. It is 620m long, with a crew of around 4,000 and a reactor output on the order of 9e23 Watts, equivalent to 10% of that of an Imperial-class Star Destroyer. Its role as a designated Pursuit Frigate requires that much of its reactor output is channelled into its propulsion systems, which are large and powerful for its size, giving it an impressive acceleration of 4800G compared to the ISD’s 3600G. The class also boasts powerful and capable scanning and communications equipment, which allows its crew to maintain contact with other Imperial vessels and work in unison with other forces to capture, detain, and - if necessary - destroy their quarry.

The Fulgor, or Imperial Pursuit Frigate (IPF) can outrun all manner of privateers, pirates, and rebel ships owing to its powerful engine units and capable hyperdrive. Its weapons systems include 4 x 4-barrelled medium turbolasers, 10 x twin-barrelled light turbolaser turrets, and 2 frigate-scale missile batteries. The armament is intended not necessarily to destroy, but disable targets in order for larger ships to then swoop in and apprehend the transgressors. The Fulgor does boast the ability to board enemy ships without support, however, a role which can be seen to by its fighter and shuttle complement. The Fulgor can carry 2 light starfighter squadrons, as well as several shuttles or assault craft. Typically, TIE Landers will be carried aboard - and in some cases, DX-9 Assault craft and Sentinel-class Shuttles are used for boarding operations. The Fulgor typically hosts a garrison of several hundred navy troopers.

The Fulgor's capabilities also lend it well to the role of fleet scout - as a part of larger battlegroups. Though these ships can operate autonomously as customs and enforcement vessels, they also provide greater mission flexibility as components of a fleet. Fighter screening is not beyond their capabilities, given their point-defence turrets, medium missile batteries, and ample scanning equipment.

The design
This frigate was designed not by me, but by Fractal Sponge, who models very impressive Star Wars ships, usually belonging to the Galactic Empire. He has a blog, where he posts his creations. Many of them are also discussed in this thread. Credit for the design itself goes exclusively to him! I have used his designs in other creations; namely the two turrets which I posted. Note to the admins: I have permission from Fractal Sponge to post this recreation of his work.

My role in this creation is its recreation in Minecraft, as well as a full design of the interior. So basically everything you see on the outside is his design, and on this creation it will remain mostly unchanged. I'm designing the interior from scratch, though. It is still in an early stage and is subject to change. I may add tractor beam projectors in the future.
Planned facilities (click to reveal):
- Main reactor
- Terciary reactors
- Power cells and capacitors
- Power converters
- Shield generators and distribution equipment
- Primary and secondary propulsion
- Repulsorlifts (and aetheric rudders/anchors)
- Hyperdrive
- Tensor field generators and conduits
- Inertial compensators
- Hangar bay
- Fighter and shuttle craft storage and maintenance facilities
- Command Sector (Bridge, Ops room, Senior Staff's Quarters, etc.)
- Engineering Sector (Reactor room, Engine room, all kinds of components - lots of cooling and propulsion gubbins)
- Crewed areas (this encompasses a lot of corridors, as well as a load of rooms from where the crew can control and monitor the ship's systems.)
- Crew's living areas, with mess halls, barracks, etc.
- Bulkheads, framework, and power/air/water/coolant conduits
- Water and air refreshing plants


Dimensions:
620 long
330 wide
198 high

Current blocks:
1,154,000
(with an average of about 8000 blocks added per day in the last 2 months, with breaks.)

The ship will use my Imperial Resource Pack (IRP), which is a WIP.
The ship is built mostly using MCEdit, although I create smaller details using Minecraft itself.
I'll release both the IRP and Fulgor downloads at a later date, when they're a little more polished. For now, enjoy the pictures!
And please feel free to leave a comment or diamond, and subscribe if you'd like to get updates and see my future projects.

Just a display. Idk how movecraft works, but presumably you could just rig it up to move if you wanted?

Amazing!

Could you possibly make a blockade runner?

Thanks!
I might possibly consider it... I am always more interested in more obscure designs though; and ones that others haven't done before... That said, an assassin corvette or some other corellian line corvette could be on the cards in the future... I'll certainly take your request into consideration.
