Star Crusader/I

During the time of the great Imperial Civil War and the time of the emperor
Reborn, these cruisers made their apperance. The Star Crusader cruiser is a
modification of the old Imperial Star Destroyer. All but the lowest level of
the command section, a flat rectangular area raised up only one level from
the main hull, were taken off of this design, and the ship was slightly
enlargened. On top of that, at the back, winglike extensions were added.
These extensions were like those found on the Vengeance and carried a pair
of extra engines under each, increasing the thrust power of the ship. Also
the back of the ship was rounded out a bit and an engine section similair
to that of Mon calmari Star Cruisrs was added. The result of this was that
the Star Crusader had incredibly thrust power as well as a phenominal
hyperdrive.

Also stolen from Mon Calmari design was the idea of backup shield generators
to regenerate lost shield strength. The rear "wings" also added to the ship's
sleek design and made it slightly more maneuverable, especially when coupled
with the enormous thruster potential of the ship. With it's reinforced hull
plates and heavy shields, not to mention backup shields, the Star Crusader
can also take a wide degree of punishment from enemy vessels before even
having to consider pulling back.

The armament complement is a mismatch of several Star Destroyer variants.
These weapons can dish out extreme amounts of firepower agaisnt enemy ships
and fleets.

Also the Star Crusader can field an impressive 12 squadrons of starfighters,
2 full wings. During the empire's military buildup, many of these vessels
were built, and in the limited engagements against the New Republic, they
were truly war machines to be feared. Against fellow Imperials during the
civil war, it was just another insane weapon of destruction. After the
time of the Reborn emperor, it was unknown how many of the Star Crusader's
remained, but it was believed that all facilities capable of producing them
had been destroyed.

The Interdictor Variant was not as widely produced or used as it's counterpart.
However, it was still liked by several of the comepting Warlords during the
civil war and by the Emperor's forces after he returned to take control of
the Empire. Though it's firepower was slightly decreased, the Interdictor
variant could steal deal a large ammount of damage while being able to rip
ships from hyperspace.
