Topic: Bounty hunter ships?

Hi, I'm going to be making some Star Wars fanfilms in which i have a Mando Bounty hunter, the thing is, she needs a ship.

So my question is, what do you think the ideal bounty hunting ship would be? smile

(thought this would be an appropriate place to post this question...)

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

Hmmm, i realy think a heavily modified TIE phantom would be sweet, but it has no room for captives. Any sort of freighter or crusier would do, so would medium ships, like corvettes, or shuttles. When you make the films, make sure to put a link or the film itself here.
(GOOD LUCK!)

Slave 1...

but if you want to be original I'd go with some sort of modified transport:

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

A Transwarp Cruiser would make a great Bounty Hunter ship. It has a clocking device that makes it invisible to even high powered sensors. It can eve fire while staying invisable. It also has two laser cannons on the wings and a multi barreled laser cannon on the front, which is pretty impressive for a ship its size.

Only bad thing is it lacks shields and can't attack to the side, due to all the wepons being up front. I wouldn't worry about those though. Who needs shields when you can go invisible?

It can handle just about anything, except an Energon Torch or any other focused, high heat tool.

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

One could modify any ship to meet the needs of a bounty hunter. Adding more and stronger wepons, armor upgrades. Credits being the only barrier to the bounty hunter.

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

Sweet ship ideas! Thanks guys! I really like that ship pic you posted Alo Fett, looks perfect for my bounty hunter. (statistics and everything!) Why couldn't I have found something like  that with my google search I'll never know... smile

Now I just have to figure out whether I'm going to make it a digital ship or build a model and film it in front of a bluescreen... wink

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

it would have to be fast manuevarable well shielded and well armed.but also innocous in appearance.

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

I've seen a Tie crawler ( do they even exist? yikes tongue ) in lego. ( lego model which you can build and look at ) That would be a good land Bounty hunter ship. big_smile

The 'TIE Crawler' is actually called the 'Century Tank' And its a tank, as in, unable to fly

A fine ship, but you couldn't capture and transfer bounties from their ship to yours..........or even have a place for prisoners in one could you?  Not without serious modifications, at least.

Personally I'd go with the StarViper.  It's a serious gunslinger and great dogfighter, yet still has a little room for prisoners, supplies, and sleeping quarters.  Not as much as Slave I for sure, but more then an X-Wing or Arc-170 type fighter.

Or, if you want to bring partners into the mix, use 1 or 2 fighters working with a larger craft like a modified transport/freightor.  Then you have the kill/capture capabilities the fighters give you with plenty of supplies and prisoner space for long hunts

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

I think modified freighters would make better bounty hunting ships. The YT series is great for modification, and a freighter would be a little more difficult to kill. More room for prisoners and if need be, allies. Also you could put an escape pod in it, with a fighter you get hit to hard, your dead. I personally like the YT-2000, its very fast, has an escape pod, quad laser cannons (which you might be able to hook up to a targeting computer to make it basicly automated) and plenty of room for the prisoners (with modification of course.) If you had companions, they could man the turrets. Might set you back a bit, but if your a good bounty hunter you can easily make up for it.

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

Here's the ship I'm using for an RPG, I think it works pretty nice for a bounty hunting ship as it has a strong cloaking system, and is faster than the most ships that can locate it smile  Its a LightStealth 18 Reconnaissance Ship: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/LightSte … sance_Ship

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

That looks pretty spiffy, seeing as how the wiki page didn't have a picture.  Don't know how big it would be, as it is only a 6 passenger, but I do like the way the ship looks in the picture, Nice find AA big_smile

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

It really fits, the Normandy is a stealth ship big_smile
Yours would definitely be smaller i think, but it might be about the same size....

It's a 3-seater, so you could use one to hold your prisoner.  I'd still like a main support craft, though.  I think it would be better to have a main support vessel, like a Corvette type of cruiser (I like the ones used by Tyber Zam's Consortium).  They have plenty of firepower and support facilities in and of themselves.  But also have a couple of ARC-170's and maybe a LaaT/i Gunship in your launch bay as your primary tool vehicles.  Gives you flexibility when you need to capture a target.  If you don't have personnel working with you, you could purchase some combat droids to serve in those capacities.  Like the BL series Legionnaire droids.  Each LaaT/i gunship comes with one of those field medic droids, that are on par with a surgeon droid, but are more mobile (they float on repulsors instead of walking), so that could come in real handy in a pinch.  Use a droid rear-gunner for the ARC-170.  If you need to hit a more heavily defended target, take the gunship full of BL droids to land and take it out.  Quite effective.  You'd have to have the droids reprogrammed, though, to be more autonomous.  Let them think for themselves, learn, and become more creative.  Otherwise they're just going to be as crappy as the old Trade Fed Battle Droids.  I think that's why I like the BL droids better.  Program some specifically as pilots and others to also assist in maintaining the ships.  Like having your own small little army or squad.

This is what I kind of had in mind.

Re: Bounty hunter ships?

that bottom one looks like the pillar of autumn kinda. anyway, the normandy is a really big ship, and although it is stealth, it can only be that way for a few hours, and not in ftl (faster than light) mode. Now that that's out of the way, I think the obvious choice is the slave 1, it is obviously successful. If were only going with sw stuff, I would say the Millenium Falcon, because it is the fastest, i know the yt series was mentioned. Also, the IG-2000, IG-88s ship is very fast and with heavy armor, but no place was described for a dock or prison hold. Of course, although IG-88b was a bounty hunter for an unspecified number of years, it was only a front.
