Onderon Zakkeg Heavy Frigate Textured

Improving on the Orbalisk Light Frigate in nearly all aspects, the Zakkeg is fast and heavily armed for ship of this size, even outperforming the purpose built frigates of the Sith and Republic fleets. Their armament consists of 5x double laser cannon turrets and 2 torpedo launchers, providing the ship with a considerable punch at close range. 


Lacking the capabilities to reliably build intermediate destroyer sized warships but still finding the need to field such vessels, the Onderon Royal Navy has opted to retrofit a number of smaller support transports into heavy frigates. While these heavy frigates do not posses the raw firepower needed for extended brawls with typical destroyers or threaten larger capitol ships, their speed, armor and versatility allow them to preform well in the Navy's primarily systems defense role, while still posing a serious danger when amassed in groups if the need arises.

What about it?

witch timeline did this fight in

Kharcov's avatar

It's based on ships seen during the Tales of the Jedi series, around 5000 years prior to the original trilogy.

witch comic book episode?

Inspired by art seen in 1.6 Dark Lords of the Sith, however the class likely served between 5000 and 4000 BBY.

Kind of reminds me of a Caracal from Eve Online.

As an off again on again EVE player, I imagine some EVE'ness seeps into my designs from time to time.

The republic ships have a good look from the comics as well

Kharcov's avatar

They do indeed, I've spent the last couple weeks building out the Republic fleet and they are look quite fine.

Nice render! And I like that you used the flag from Star Wars: The Old Republic.


Say, would you consider making ships from the SWTOR era? There's plenty of creative freedom there.

Kharcov's avatar

Thanks! Yeah, it was the only real example of Onderonian heraldry I could find, however it works well enough as far as I know.


I have made stuff for the SWTOR era in the past, I very well might dust some of those off or make some new ones. The later designs I have for both the Republic and Sith fleets will start approaching the SWTOR aesthetic as well as the technology marches in that direction.
