    Star Wars: The Last Jedi is bringing on two major frigates to the mix - one serving as the base of operations where Supreme Leader Snoke commands the First Order, and one themed after the Resistance which is named after a certain famous Mon Calamari...







    If you were a bit underwhelmed by the recent reveal of the 'Pizza Crust' Star Destroyer, then don't worry - there's an all-new one that's bigger, badder, and one tailor-made to fit the needs of the First Order's Supreme Leader.


    <blockquote data-card-created='1504248486']Snoke's Mega Star Destroyer 'Supremacy' revealed from StarWarsLeaks[/QUOTE]
    <script async src='//embed.redditmedia.com/widgets/platform.js' charset='UTF-8']</script>





    And here's a look at the ship's engines:


    <blockquote>Snokes Supremacy Engines from StarWarsLeaks[/QUOTE]
    <script async src='//embed.redditmedia.com/widgets/platform.js' charset='UTF-8']</script>




    In addition, there's also a Resistance ship that looks to be a hybrid of a GR-75 medium transport and a Mon Calamari cruiser, named Raddus.


    <blockquote lang='en' data-id='a/bxiyf']The Raddus[/QUOTE]
    <script async src='//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js' charset='utf-8']</script>



    So yeah - the heroic Mon Calamari that got iced by the Empire shortly after the events of Rogue One gets paid his dues for providing critical backup for the daring operation to steal the Death Star plans to succeed. I'm really glad that they're up to using elements from the Anthology movies in the main films, as it really makes it feel as though there are more connections within this sprawling Galaxy Far, Far Away. But I'm more glad that they're intent on giving us some new ship designs along with the repurposed ones in the movie. These ought to look awesome on the big screen!

    If someone's curious - there are two ships named after real-life admiral Raddus - Winston Churchill; an American Destroyer:

    And this beautiful schooner:

    As for the SW ships - The Supremacy certainly looks like a stealth bomber. Also, I am tremendously disappointed - it's just 60 km wide. It was supposed to go to 100 km! And The Raddus - I'm so glad that the coolest dude in the whole of Rogue One got a ship named after him. Go, Mon Calamari! (ackbar)

    Looks more like a mega class Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit.

    It's funny how much the Supremacy looks like a Stealth Figther.

    But this ship will most likely be nothing like a stealth fighter.

    Sweet Jesus. Let's hope it's not the opening shot. We'll be 15 minutes in by the time that baby passes by!

    So how exactly does that ship compare to the previous ones size-wise ? Is it bigger than a super star destroyer ?

    I wonder whether the name is a reference to Battlefront (Supremacy mode) and may indicate what kind of battle we're getting:

    "There are two ways in which to win while playing this mode: you can eliminate all the enemy forces, and win automatically; or you can capture all the command posts on the map, and a timer set at twenty seconds begins to count down just below your radar. When this timer hits zero, your team wins; however, if the other team manages to capture a Command Post before the time runs out, the battle will continue"

    The Supremacy looks awesome. It's simple, but an original design, which the new movies are seriously lacking in. May end up being the coolest SW ship.

    The one thing that is lacking in the FO ships is the way they are rendered in these first look images. I hope they look better in the film and these are just quick promo renders. The style they rendered the ships in Rogue One looked the best IMO. These have a decidedly cheap feeling to them. Again, the rendering (materials, lighting), not the design or modelling.

    To be fair I felt the same about the first look we had at the movie AT-M6 and that looks much better in the film in a proper environment. Also I am glad Snoke's ship didn't turn out to be the pizza slice ship after all.

    Super Star Destroyers of the Empire = 19 km
    Mega Destroyer = 60 km
    Death Star 1 and 2 = 120-160 km (200 km for the Death Star 2 in the new canon)

    Looks like the triangular opens on the bottom will fit at least two SDs.
