One of the biggest ships of the Separatist fleet, the dreadnought's power is enough to hold a blockade almost by itself. A roughly cylindrical warship, the cruiser's surface was dotted with heavy weapons emplacements capable of piercing through the shields and hulls of enemy vessels. The ponderous cannons, though, were too slow to target tiny Jedi starfighters that could dart past the cruiser's defenses into the ship's spacious hangar bay.
The bridge of the cruiser was located on a platform resting atop the bow of the vessel. Towards the aft end of the craft was a towering fin-like spire that rose from the rest of the hull. Within this spire were the General's Quarters, a military command center with tactical displays, briefing table, and an enormous observation deck with a wide view of surrounding space.
