Kuat Drive Yards by wraithdt Kuat Drive Yards by wraithdt
This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

The fortress and shipyard world of Kuat, home of Kuat Drive Yards, the manufacturer of the dreaded Imperial Star Destroyer and its cousins. I believe this is the first ever close-up depiction of what the famous shipyard looks like. It was kinda fun to figure out where the main business of Star Destroyer construction would take place. I also made sure that its protected by a ring of formidable Golan Defense Platforms to thwart any would be invaders.

Nice idear, but VERY wrong dimensions! The planetary wheel has to be sixty thousand(!) kilometers in diameter! You wont see any detail in the far round....

g'day i am a bit of a star wars fan myself, i remember owning a star wars essential vehicle guide book that portraided the kuat drive yards differently. As a collection of globes like a space station. Although your looks better

Great to see an Executor-class Super Star Destroyer in the distance.

Awesome to see Kuat brought to life. Where they build the big beasts.

Magnificent. Always love the image of a megastructure, especially one so huge it has to be in space.
