The Decimation-class Super Star Destroyer was designed by the Balmorran Engineering Corporation as a new age command vessel for the Imperial fleet, one that could be produced much cheaper than the cost-intensive Executor-class. At a staggering nineteen kilometers long, it strikes fear into the hearts of those it fights against. It is armed with almost 2,000 weapon emplacements for deep space combat and orbital bombardment.
Based on the well-known Executor-class that the Balmorrans hoped to replace, the vessel’s hull is different than its sister ship, with the middle-front section removed. A second hangar bay, containing one half of the ship’s starfighter complement, can be found at the innermost part of this opening, where the opening stops.
The ship is very slow and, due to the reduced superstructure, has fewer weapons than the Executor-class. The sacrifice was deemed necessary to give the ship much of the same operating capacity as the other design while still retaining a lower cost.
