The Independence and Home One

The flagship of the Alliance, the Home One, was the largest warship in the fleet.
Twice the size of the Imperial Star Destroyer, Home One was a massive vessel from
which Admiral Ackbar himself commanded the Rebel fleet and personally led the
assault against the second Death Star.

Despite its enormous form, the Home One wasn't outfitted for direct ship-to-ship
combat. In fact, it was highly underarmed for its size and class, wielding only
twenty-nine turbolaser batteries and thirty-six ion cannon batteries. Instead,
Home One carried an impressive amount of starfighters, 120 in all, which was
nearly twice the amount that the standard star destroyer had to offer.

Extensive shielding and armor allowed the Home One to take a beating for prolonged
periods of time, if the situation called for it. Advanced communications, sensors,
holo displays and tactical computers made it ideal for a command ship.

The Home One and the Independence quietly faded away during the days of the New
Republic, they were retired secretly and their whereabouts after that point were
kept highly classified. No official explanation about the Independence and the
Home One being the same vessel or not was ever given, but they were never recorded
together.
