Serpents Smile Star Destroyer

The Serpents Smile Star Destroyer was Kuat Drive Yards first attempt at
placing Tarkin II-style weapons on the smallest possible hull.  At the time
it was conceived, Kuat Military Officials had already been calling for a ship
with powerful weapons that could be relatively quick to build.  Though the
Enslaver Heavy Star Destroyer had already proven itself as a worthy design,
Kuat Military Leaders scorned it for its lack of quality secondary weapons,
especially for its lack of quad laser cannons and concussion missiles.  As a
result, Kuat Drives began developments for the new ship.  

The Serpents Smile's design basically conformed to a Super Star Destroyer
shrunk down to an Imperial Star Destroyer hull. The length of the hull was
drawn up at 4.8 Kilometers, in order to accommodate the five wings and two
squadrons it was to carry, as well as the ground and support craft.  150
Super Heavy Turbolaser Batteries were placed on the ship as its main
offensive weapon.  Also installed were ninety Heavy Ion Web Projectors and
100 Heavy Quad Laser Cannons for defense against incoming missiles and
fighters. Sixty Concussion Missile Launchers were added to the design to
increase firepower.  

Because of its design and size, other military commanders often underestimate
the Serpents Smile.  The firepower of it could literally decimate opposing
forces in one blow.  The Serpents Smile has quickly earned the respect of
Kuat Officials and the unfortunate commanders who have had the displeasurable
task of facing one in combat. The Serpents Smile has become a revolutionary
weapon of terror that will undoubtedly pave the way for a new era of Starship
design and construction.
