That is an, interesting, way to mount weapons.
I guess all three turrets can fire forward at the same time. Is that really how the original Thad things?

Sort of? It's comics art, so not really clear exactly how the small blisters are laid out on the big one. The general arrangement of blister on giant blister was clear though, so this is my rationalization of it. It's complicated, but it does allow every gun to bear forward and down, which is clearly where the ship orients the main threat axis.

I forget, but that thing is pretty much a frigate-class vessel, no?

It's 3+km long. So easily OT star battlecruiser volume.

Wow, that is big.

By the by, my apologies fractal, where were the stats for the Legator-class again? I think I missed them. Or did you make stats for it at all?

That ship looks like it might be a relative to the Lucrehulk.

I'd be surprised if it didn't *inspire* the Lucrehulk.

Not exactly. The ship itself is several millennia old from the OT perspective. I imagine that, before this particular ship was eventually and completely discontinued from construction or use, that it was modified from its military variant to a civilian version. Considering it's size, it's likely that mass transportation of goods became cost-effective. Companies like the Trade Federation would be more than happy to buy used, underpriced military hardware and repurpose it for cheaper, bigger transport. Once they decided to build their own transport ships (ie Lucrehulks), they likely copied most of the design elements of the older ship.

But sure, let's break it down to Occam's Razor: *because it's round*.
