This design served as the standard destroyer design of Imperial fleets in the Alliance–Imperial War.



The Imperial destroyer followed the usual layout of Imperial warships, with a long curved hull joining the engines mounted to the stern of the ship, with the ship's bridge mounted on the ventral side, close to the rear hull. A small transparency dominated the leading edge of the dorsal bow.

The destroyer mounted 11 beam cannons in its bow. Nine missile tubes are also fitted to the port and starboard engine nacelles, for a total of 18 missile tubes. (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)')

Role and Capabilities

This destroyer design fought in all known fleet battles from at least 788 UC (479 IC / 3588 CE). They could often be observed in formations of four, in escort positions around fleet flagships. (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part One)')

Unlike its Alliance counterparts, it was capable of entering planetary atmospheres and executing water landings. (DNT: 'In the Eternal Night', 'Farewell to the Days of Old')
