Imperial Star Destroyer

Massive Imperial Cruiser

Details

Description

The wedge-shaped Imperial Star Destroyer is a capital ship bristling with weapons emplacements. Turbolasers and tractor beam projectors dot its surface. Its belly hangar bay can launch TIE fighters, boarding craft, land assault units, hyperspace probes, or be used to hold captured craft. Its bustling bridge is staffed by the finest crewers in the Imperial starfleet.

The Star Destroyer is recognized as the signature vessel of the Imperial fleet. Its presence in a system marks matters of extreme Imperial import. Though, as is typical of the Empire, not even the Star Destroyer was enough to sate the Imperial hunger for displays of power. Larger vessels, such as the Super Star Destroyer, dwarf even these giants.

TIE fighter

TIE fighters are short-range craft and lack a hyperdrive. As such, they must be ferried to combat zones aboard larger vessels. Imperial Star Destroyers carry squadrons of TIE fighters within their hangars, launching them from ventral bays.
