The Raptor-class Frigate is a medium-sized capital ship used by Khetarian corporate forces as well as concern officials as a mobile base of operations and to protect their most valuable assets in pirate infested sectors. Incorporating a host of offensive and defensive weaponry for area superiority its large forward hangar offers space for fighters or supply craft.

The Raptor-class Frigate was the first capital ship I ever released for XWA, late January 2004! 18 years later I'm working on a serious HD revision with alot more details and numerous design improvements. Halfway there I'm re-releasing the original model with some much needed improvements:

- Rescaled the ship from 600m down to 400m
- Converted all textures to HD, making numerous improvements
- Tweaked the window layout to make more sense and match the reduced size
- Slightly reduced the armament to match the reduced size
- Replaced the old low-detail turrets with better looking ones
- Numerous improvements to hitzones and hardpoint placement.
- Added a LOD as well as .mat and .ini files.

This is a major milestone on the way to the big HD-remake. I hope you enjoy this major update!

As always, you can get this model from your local X-Wing HQ

I like how your designs feel like they could fit into many different Sci-Fi series.
Keep on building! :)
